Once Upon a Parsec (edited by) David Gullen

Limited Edition $40.00

Have you ever wondered what the fairy tales of alien cultures are like? For hundreds of years scholars and writers have collected and retold folk and fairy stories from around our world. They are not alone. On distant planets alien chroniclers have done the same. For just as our world is steeped in legends and half-remembered truths of the mystic and the magical, so are theirs. 

Now, for the first time, we can share some of these tales with you…
