Spells, magical creatures, kings and queens, werewolves, and the like all make an appearance in this poem as he regales his audiences with the ballads he sings. The other poems in this collection are also fantasy-oriented, but they did not fit in with the plot / structure of “A Bard Out of Time” (most are not ballads) or were not reflective of the setting of that poem. Some of these poems cross over into the dark fantasy/horror genre (particularly the ones with demons in them), but others are playful or risqué.
