Now my short story has been well and truly torn to pieces (I am very thankful to everyone who managed to read the 'story') I need to try and make something out of it. Many of the points I am fixing on my own, some others with help but one point I really don't know how to fix. The world which my characters inhabit is full of fantasy races, some known, others of my own invention. I have modified imps who cause illusions, zoomorphs who are werewolves but for every animal and ralacees who have heated areas of skin. My question is how do I introduce a new fantasy race to readers? The characters can't be used as a vehicle to introduce this (I do find it annoying when new people are added just to explain things) as they already know everything about these races, so how do I do this? Thanks!
