I do believe the Grondmaster is challenging us, Delidia. :cool:

Let me see, the shortest Fantasy story ever:

This is a lot of fun, and a very good exercise for the imagination, but I am as yet unable to top Grondy's SF short stories. :D

I believe the postAuthorID Valedhelgwath is referring to was Victor Hugo, whose most famous works include The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Les Misrables.
