Read full description of the books Fancies and Goodnights Vol 1:This collection of John Collier short stories won the International Fantasy Award in 1951. His fantastic ability to mix satire with though provoking 'what ifs' is clearly seen in this compilation of thirty-two short stories entitled, Fancies and Goodnights.
He pulls the reader into a world of fantasy, make believe, and even 'Hell'. As the stories unfold, the surreal and bizarre become almost possible as we weave in and out of 'reality'.
John Collier uses the shortcomings, selfishness and downright stupidity of ordinary man and his incredible imagination to develop a new and exciting twist in each of these witty stories. Subjects such as eternal youth potions, man-eating flowers, and murder are fraught with humor and mystery. He leaves the audience wanting more.
