Description
Beyond the old tales of the pied piper, into a realm that only great thinkers of the imagination rises an alternate world of compatibility until an evil nemesis comes to destroy it.

Summary
An ancient theme of mythology creeps into the world of literary fantasy and evolves into something deep within the terrascape of the imagination

Excerpt
Long ago, far across the sea in the medieval town of Weymouth another story arose in the midst, near its end, of the great and notorious Black Plague that somehow was misplaced in the passage of time, but not lost. It was a grim reflection and much darker, of a tale that happened sixty five years before in the village of Hamelin. It is a tale in fact that marked the end of the plague, perhaps in a way historians over looked or hid, since magic was even then frowned upon. Historians of the day told of a seaman who came from Gascony who brought in his body the black death and that might be true in part, but as news is twisted today it was so then as well, for the rulers of the time did not want the idea of magic, black or white to spread as violently as the plague itself.
