The Princess & the Serpent of the Iron Mountain
by Nick Davis – The Wonder Tale #8
In a land far, far away travels the Princess Gwendolyn and her companions Kurt the werewolf and Will’O the Wisp all banished from their land by the Evil Witch Isabelle. As she begins her search to find her way home she encounters Tobisum, a Samurai who is one inch in stature, but is mighty in heart. Gwendolyn strikes a deal with him, in return for his help as a guide; she would aid him in his quest to rescue the Woodland Nymph from the Serpent of the Iron Mountain. An adventure that reveals that true courage comes from within.
Today was the father of fantasy JRR Tolkiens Birthday, he was born January 3rd, 1892 in Bloemfontein South Africa. In honor of his Birthday I wrote a Tolkeinesque Fable, The Archer, the Horse & the Princess. This story can be found in my collection fairy stories called The Wonder Tales which can be viewed by clicking here.
The Archer story was an adaptation of a fairy tale told to me by my Grandfather when I was a young boy. Half remembered, retold, and re imagined by me in honor JRR Tolkien. Remember there are no new stories anymore, just different ways of telling them. Thank you JRR Tolkien for opening my eyes to a whole new world.
