From autobiography to fantasy

April 27th, 2016

James Southern turned to writing a collection of fantasy stories after previously publishing his autobiography. Each story in Once Upon: Fairly Tall Fairy Tales (FriesenPress $19.95) is unique but the setting for all of them is Europe of a few centuries ago. Characters in the stories vary from other-worldly beings to teenagers striving to realize their dreams. Before getting married, Southern travelled extensively. His travels are recorded in his three-part autobiography:Twenty Years Around the World, Alaska to Patagonia (about hitchhiking most of the way), & Cape Town to Tunis, (driving most of the way). A B.C. resident, James Southern was born in 1943.
