Book Description

In 1997, New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks reinvented the fantasy genre again, publishing the contemporary fantasy masterpiece RUNNING WITH THE DEMON, the first book in a trilogy of novels that would become known as the Word/Void series.

But in 1991, six years before RUNNING WITH THE DEMON, Terry Brooks began testing the mythos found in Word/Void and wrote a tale titled IMAGINARY FRIENDS, a short story published in the Lester del Rey anthology ONCE UPON A TIME!

IMAGINARY FRIENDS has been out of print ever since -- but no longer!

Jack McCall is ten days shy of his thirteenth birthday, a happy kid with wonderful parents, a great best friend, and a bright future. But after a series of headaches forces him to visit the family doctor, Jack discovers a dark secret about himself, one that threatens to destroy him.

All is not lost though. In mysterious Sinnissippi Park where he is banned to tread, Jack discovers unexpected help from the most unlikely of friends and begins a quest to locate the most potent of magics -- one he needs if he is to survive.

Here, for the first time in two decades, Terry Brooks fans can read the 8500-word short story IMAGINARY FRIENDS, featuring Sinnissippi Park and the first appearance of the elven creature Pick and his trusty owl Daniel!

I am recovering from cancer, and the story is so true,you do have to fight your demons, but staying positive has helped me get through this. Terry this is a lovely story and I am sure when your friend read the book he felt the same way. I do hope that you get lots of people to read it, my best wishes to the druid for a long and healthy life. I am a great fan and have all the Shannara books,keep on writing.Thank you.

Excellent. This story took me back to the sort of story, I used to enjoy reading as a child.
Having had a similar life changing experience a few years ago, I could really connect to what was happening to Jack.

3.0 out of 5 stars Imaginary friends 9 Mar. 2014
By Nette
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After reading a few of Terry's books I felt this one must have been one of his earlier books and was more geared for children in mind. Was'nt as impressed with this one as I had been of the others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terry Brooks the best 21 Dec. 2013
By Griff3
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Terry Brooks easy to read, highly imaginative science fantasy stories. His books should have been turned into Films. There are many more so try them for yourself, but look up all of his books
