    Along the borders of this world lie others.There are places you can cross.This is one such place.

    4 Fantastical Stars A Tale of Folklore, Legend, Magic and Mystery Late one night at a pub called the Swan at Radcot on the River Thames, villagers unwind with a pint, as they often do A man comes to the door with the body of a cold, lifeless girl in his arms and promptly passes out He sleeps for days Rita Sunday, the town medic, checks them both over To her astonishment, she soon discovers that the young girl is, in fact, alive People come from near and far to see her, including three f 4 Fantas [...]
