The newest issue of Morpheus Tales arrived in my mail box last week. Once I opened the envelope and saw the cover art I had a feeling I was in for something special. I wasn’t wrong.

Morpheus Tales #11 is a great collection of short fiction and artwork. Out of the ten stories there was only one that I really didn’t enjoy, personal taste. It seemed a bit out of place in … Continue reading
