From the dawn of creation there have been storytellers spinning timeless
fables and folktales. Call them historians, poets, philosophers, or charlatans,
it was their fanciful re-tellings of the age of wonder that kept children
enwrapped in fantasy and immersed in imagination. But over the last two
centuries something dark has been devouring the storytellers - and even
the stories themselves - leaving children with dulled imaginations and no
will to believe in giant killers or wicked witches. Abby was one of those
children and is now a young woman who still lives only in the concrete reality
of her professional ambitions. Raised by a mother who had no time for "childish
pursuits," she grew up too fast and locked her fertile imagination away forever.
But Abby's orderly world comes crashing down upon her when a crazy old man who
believes himself to be the real Baron Munchausen leads her into a festering
fantasy world facing villainous henchmen, zombified fairytale creatures, and the
most unlikely wickedest witch of them all!
