Overview

In 1997, New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks reinvented the fantasy genre again, publishing the contemporary fantasy masterpiece RUNNING WITH THE DEMON, the first book in a trilogy of novels that would become known as the Word/Void series.

But in 1991, six years before RUNNING WITH THE DEMON, Terry Brooks began testing the mythos found in Word/Void and wrote a tale titled IMAGINARY FRIENDS, a short story published in the Lester del Rey anthology ONCE UPON A TIME!

IMAGINARY FRIENDS has been out of print ever since -- but no longer!

Jack McCall is ten days shy of his thirteenth birthday, a happy kid with wonderful parents, a great best friend, and a bright future. But after a series of headaches forces him to visit the family doctor, Jack discovers a dark secret about himself, one that threatens to destroy him.

All is not lost though. In mysterious Sinnissippi Park where he is banned to tread, Jack discovers unexpected help from the most unlikely of friends and begins a quest to locate the most potent of magics -- one he needs if he is to survive.

Here, for the first time in two decades, Terry Brooks fans can read the 8500-word short story IMAGINARY FRIENDS, featuring Sinnissippi Park and the first appearance of the elven creature Pick and his trusty owl Daniel!

I'm so happy that I bought and read this short story! It's a great tale of lost childhood innocence and how the power of belief in anything can get oneself through the roughest of times.

This is a great little story to give you a little glimpse into the Word and the Void series. I really enjoyed revisiting the park, Pick and Daniel.

This book is a quick read, and a great place to start if you're planning on reading the whole shannara series from start to finish.

This was a fun read. The Word & Void series is one of my favorites and this was a nice prequel for it. It was great visiting Sinnissippi Park again.

It was entertaining. Short and Brooks did the most he could with the length; sort of a mini-advertisement to get you introduced to his series if you enjoy it.
