Fantastic Lore: “Who’s the Man Now?”


Richard H. Swan Jr.





Richard and Randy are biological brothers; they were born into a large family, grew up in Upstate New York. They were avid comic book readers and who also loved to draw.

Their childhood diet of cartoons, outdoor adventures and love of nature shows and excursions on fishing trips and hiking trails fostered their imaginations. Later in their adult lives they joined an online poetry and writer’s forum—along with a third brother, also artist and writer—where they began writing together and separately; creating collaborative stories such as this one.
