Adventure Stories

Our adventure category is for stories that tend to be more slow-paced than action stories. They share some attributes, but differ in that they are less about the destination and more about the journey.

It focuses on the camaraderie between characters, their escapades, their relationships and what brings them either closer together, or farther apart.

Adventure stories can cover a wide range of settings, from the epic, to the mundane, but every one has capers that lead to discovery in one form or another.
