Acceptable Fruit Anthology of Fun Fantasy Stories
Although I am an ordained minister I love writing fun fantasy stories. I am aware there are those who do not believe being a Christian and writing or reading fantasy are compatible. I feel sorry for them. They are missing out on a rich source of encouragement and challenge.
True, not all fantasy is worth the paper on which it is printed—some worth even less than the paper on which it is printed! But there are fun fantasy stories well worth reading. For my part, I have been writing fantasy for years, and each story has a worthwhile takeaway.
My Acceptable Fruit anthology is a good example of meritorious fun fantasy fiction. Each story of the anthology illustrates an aspect of the fruit of the Spirit: Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, etc. The shortest of the stories is “Peace.” It is what is called a short short. I have included it below for your enjoyment. There is some overlap of the various aspects of the fruit within each story, but then, there is overlap—at least I trust so—in our lives.
Enjoy the story, and give me your feedback.
