Overview

The planet of Arvonia lies in a distant area of the universe. Its inhabitants have explored the galaxy for thousands of years, visiting worlds; some inhabited, others barren and unable to support life. Their mission was to observe and interfere – but only if absolutely necessary...

Flights of Fantasy is a collection of 28 science-fiction and fantasy stories. They cover a wide range of topics and ideas; some probable, others perhaps not so probable. Is the disappearance of the cats in the first story something that could happen? Others are pure fantasy, but could they happen too?

‘When I look back over the changes that have happened since the end of World War Two, I realise that things that would have seemed improbable before then have now become realities. Because of this, perhaps the events in these stories are not as far-fetched as they seem at first,’ says Mary.

This collection of tales focuses on ideas not too far from the truth and will provoke thought from like-minded readers and fans of sci-fi and fantasy fiction.
