Book Description

“Welcome to the Repository of Imagination”

From astonishing worlds of fantasy, aliens, and magic, the Repository of Imagination has been collecting tales since the dawn of Creation. Now, for the first time, selected story spheres from the Repository have been translated into human languages. Open your mind to the splendour of other worlds, to fantastic creatures so alike you humans in some ways, yet in other ways so different. Learn the cautionary tales of those whose lives played out eons before your own.

Alien Legends: A Selection from the Repository of Imagination collects 32 separate stories suitable for young humans aged 11-15 years, and for older readers whose sense of wonder is still functional.

What you will find inside...

If you enjoy reading anything in this list, then Alien Legends is for you, as all of these are featured in its stories: giant eagles, aliens, gods, space whales, falling in love, more aliens, short stories, the birth of worlds, poems, betrayal, questing knights, novellas, spaceships, dark underground caverns, novellas, science fiction, rites and rituals, and deadly fungus that will eat you as you sleep.

The Repository of Imagination is REAL! And YOU can get involved

“I shall need a tale from you, my friend…”

We hope the tales in this compendium inspire your own imagination to soar. At the back of the book are details of our ‘A Tale for a Tale’ programme that explain how you can create and share your own story sphere. The Repository of Imagination is not something we’ve made up. It is real, and you can get involved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sci Fi Short Story Delight! August 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I started reading Alien Legends by Gill Shutt and was drawn in by the potential wonderland of Sci Fi stories being shared and stored in a very special place.

This compendium of short stories and two novellas immersed me in an alien universe from the title page. Collected by a traveler of the universe, each one brings to life a new world populated by beings that share their tales in their own unique voice. In every story, the world, its people and its culture are clarified as much by the names Shutt bestows upon her creatures and their habitat as through the story itself. Whether the tales are framed as poetry, song or prose Shutt gives life to their being with a prodigious gift for choosing remarkably evocative names.

I am not usually a short story fan but found this collection absorbing. My only complaint is that I would have preferred the Rites of Passage and the Endings pair (both novellas) kept together rather than split into parts with stories interspersed between them. In fact, I would like to see both expanded to full length novels - they grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Like all truly good writing, these stories (and the concept itself) is still percolating through my mind and likely will be for some time to come.

Great read for Sci Fi Short Story lovers - ages 13 and up.
