The Rainbow Man is a wizard who will enchant you with his quick wits, his sardonic charm and his mystifying answers to big questions. G. W. Thomas offers all 43 fables featuring this four-armed magician along with an afterword entitled "The Fantasy Writer as Moralist". From that piece: "Readers of this book may feel I have or haven't risen to the lofty heights of the Moralist. Some of these stories are little more than Fantasy Mysteries. Many of the Rainbow Man stories strike even me as smelling too strongly of the soapbox. But that's okay. His job is simply to get people talking, agreeing or disagreeing." This book is included in Dragontongue & Other Stories.
