This one’s from Korea. And it’s Story # 12 in The Big Book of Classic Fantasy.
It’s written by Anonymous, and translated by Minsoo Kang.
It’s filled with magic and dragons and whirling FANS!
He cast a spell on the pig’s head, transforming it into a long, three-pronged spear. Yongdam also cast a spell, turning the bull’s head into a great sword.
The long spear and the great sword clashed in the air, their blades shimmering as they reflected the light of the sun. Yongdam then threw his fan into the mix and cast another spell, turning the sword and the fan into a red dragon and a blue dragon. Unchi threw in his own fan and cast a spell, turning the spear and the fan into a white dragon and a black dragon. As the four dragons fought, the place became filled with clouds and fog while thunder and lightning struck. Yet no clear winner emerged.
This scene is so very Uther Pendragon, wouldn’t you agree, dear blog readers?
