Goblins Anyone?

I'm very excited about an upcoming anthology that will hopefully be published in 2012. I've been watching these tales unfold from my good writer friend across the pond, Mr. Jack Eason. You may remember Jack as the author of Onet's Tale--I think his was one of my very first book interviews and book reviews. You can see the interview HERE and the review HERE.

Jack's been caught up these many months in a rather magical place called Goblindom. He's compiling a lovely collection of goblin-centered tales that pull you into their world as soon as you start to read them. Goblin brothers "Globular Van der Graff (Glob), Makepeace Terranova (Make), Byzantine Du Lac (Byz), Eponymous Tringthicky (Mous) and finally, curmudgeonly old Neopol Stranglethigh (Neo)" aren't your usual murderous meanies. They're quite friendly to the "humin" folk that live near the big oak tree they call home. From their unique dialects, to one of my absolute favorite characters, a one-eyed lisping raven named Bejuss, the goblin brothers are always thrown into one adventure after another. The tales range from funny to suspenseful to tug-at-your-heart poignant. 

Below is the introduction to Jack's goblin tales. I'll keep you up-to-date on when they're completed so you can all dive into their world and enjoy their exploits!

  1. Thanks for this Mysti. Both Glob and I do appreciate it - Bejuss too. :)

  2. Nice. Goblins don't get the credit they deserve :)

  3. Stefanie, I can promise you they will when Glob's anthology of tales finally hits the shelves, both physical and electronic (Kindle). :)
