EelKat Wendy C Allen - Author Interview: Spell Casting Side Effects: Magic In Quaraun's Universe | Fantasy Author Interview


2018 April/May/June Update:

As you know, most of the year I publish 2 to 3 articles a day.

However, every year during convention season, I take a break from that to go full swing CosPlay.

From early April 2018 to late June 2018, article posting schedule will be sporadic, while CosPlay Season and Convention events are going full swing.

During this time period, you can expect most, possible all new articles to be focused on costume making, CosPlay, and the characters I'm CosPlaying.

UPDATE: It's now divided into 7 pages. The primary page "Meet Avallach" is now over 20,000 words long. At this rate, it'll cross 60,000 long before the costume is finished, and that's not including the other 5 pages.

There will still be daily updates, but the BULK of the daily updates will be limited to the pages linked here:

  1. Obsession: Meet Avallac'h
  2. [NSFW] Avallac'h & His Nude Women | Witcher 3 Game Screenshots
  3. Historical Accuracy vs Avallac'h
  4. The Avallac'h CosPlay Costume Making Vlogs
  5. How To Make The Avallac'h CosPlay
  6. How Much Did It Cost? Budgeting The Avallac'h CosPlay
  7. Why do children CosPlay rapists & rape victims? & WHY Avallac'h is a M18+ character. 
  8. PortConMaine 2018
  9. On Being a Handicapped CosPlayer: A Look At Events of PortConMaine 2017 That Resulted In 3 Disabled CosPlayers Getting hurt at The Convention and How These Things Could Have Been Avoided

UPDATE April 17, 2018: I do not like being harassed online or offline, in any way, shape or form. Sorry, but what just happened this week is intolerable and I've blocked everyone involved and deleted all their posts. I will continue to block any one else who does the same as these people did. If you were one of the 200+ people blocked on my FaceBook account this week, here's a link to tell you why I blocked you: https://www.eelkat.com/cosplying-a-rapist.html 

If you want a quicker explanation of what happened, I tell you in this video:

The Summoner of Darkness:
Quaraun Meets The Gremlin

  Quaraun and Unicorn were discussing what to do about finding ZooLock, when they noticed a strangely dressed wizard along the side of the road. He was sitting on a boulder, with a touchscreen tablet on his lap, attempting to get the internet to function here in the 1400s when internet and satellites did not exist. He was dressed head to toe in florescent neon orange that looked as though it probably glowed in the dark. It had a reflective quality to the cloth that shimmered and was almost horologic. A glittering fluffy pink sheep sat beside him, looking over his shoulder, staring at the blank tablet screen and bleating.

The thing that bothered Quaraun was that, it looked like GhoulSpawn, but it wasn't GhoulSpawn. It even had sheep like GhoulSpawn. But this half-Elf was too old. GhoulSpawn was a young half-Elf, barely more then an Elfling. This was a half Elf too, but he was old. Very old. Ancient. The half-Elf sitting before them couldn't be less then a thousand years old. But he was a Sun Elf, like GhoulSpawn, with phosphorescent glowing yellow hair and gleaming gold eyes, again, like GhoulSpawn. But he was old. He was very old. By the expression on his face, he also looked lost.

"Can we help you?" Quaraun asked the old half Elf.

The orange robed wizard jumped startled by the interruption. Clearly he had thought he was alone. He looked up, saw Quaraun and immediately the colour drained from his face.

"You're alive," he whispered to himself.

"I'm sorry?"

"Nothing."

"You look lost."

"No."

"What's that?" Quaraun pointed to the tablet.

"It's a computer. You wouldn't understand. Magic from the future. But it doesn't work here. Been trying to contact the Kats. Their ship's out of range."

The old Elf's hand wandered aimlessly to the sheep, scratching it's head.

"You still have sheep."

"I always have sheep."

"You sure?" 

"I'm not lost. I know where I am. Just trying to figure out what year it is. I'm in the right place. But I'm not sure if it's the right time."

"Then you are lost."

"Something like that."

"Time traveller?"

"Yes. You know of such things?"

"I know a time traveller. Ain't seen him in a few years. Till yesterday. He just fell out of the sky. He looked a lot like you. A lot younger."

"He's always happy to see you."

"Do I know you?"

"No. I don't think so."

"You're Glintar." 

"Am I that far back?"

"You are Glinter."

"No. I'm The Gremlin."

"Gremlin?"

"Hum-huh."

"Like that ... thing?"

"1974 AMC Gremlin, 2 door, 4 cylinder hatchback. Most gas efficient car of it's time. A car so small it fits in my pockets. Of course, everything fits in my pockets. I still have it. It doesn't run any more. I find the strangest things in my pockets. Do you know I found an entire barn full of sheep in my pockets once. Three hundred sheep. And an entire barn. GhoulSpawn's been dead for centuries, and I still haven't gotten to the bottom of his pockets."

"What year are you from?"

"1987. No. 2525. Yes. I'm not sure. I don't know what time I belong in any more. What year is it now?"

Quaraun shrugged.

"I don't know. I can't count."

The Gremlin looked pasted Quaraun to Unicorn.

"It should be 1458 if I got my co-ordinances correct. How long have you two been together? How long ago did BoomFuzzy die?"

"Three hundred years. I think. We've not been together long."

The Gremlin looked to Unicorn again.

"Can you do math any better them him? Do you know how long ago BoomFuzzy died?"

"It been three hundred-ish years since I die. Him been with me now, as Unicorn, about ten years."

The Gremlin looked around, slowly turning to look at every tree and examine the road, then stared intently in the direction of the ocean.

"Don't go that way," he said pointing to the East.

"Why not?"

"Bad things happen if you do. This is the right place. I just don't know if it's the right year. Oh dear. I have a headache. You don't have calendars or clocks yet. I could be two years ahead or three years behind. All I can do is continually come back to this spot over and over again and every time I met you here, tell you not to go there until at last I 'm here in the correct year and tell the right one of you not to go that way."

"You don't look like you've travelled far," Quaraun said noticing how clean and undusty Gremlin's vivid orange satin robes were. "Is there a village around here?"

"There is. Just over that way," the ancient half-Elf answered while pointing in the same direction he'd just told them not to go. "I live on the Old Orchard Beach in the Town of Old Orchard Beach, in Maine. We have 3,000 year round residents, 12,000 property owners, and get 2 million tourists every summer mostly because Stephen King filmed Thinner in our town, and based Thinner, Christine, and Chinga off of our town. The town is pretty isolated, surrounded by a vast salt marsh , a nature preserve, on one side and a huge old growth pine forest (with some of the biggest trees in the state, including some 500 year old giants that rival California's Redwoods.) We are, right here, in the middle of Saco Bay, basically a town built on a below sea level sand bar shaped like a horseshoe and it's not an island but it's residents often referred to as island folk due to their/our extreme isolation from the maineland folk.

"There are a couple of island off shore of us and ferries do run for the locals. Most islanders own cars "off island" stored in 5 to 7 story tall parking garages in Portland and either have a second car on the island, or use bikes or just walk on the island. (The ferry also docks in Portland). Ferries are 3 times a day most of the year 10AM the first, 7PM the latest. (Portland btw has a 5PM curfew - all businesses shut down at 5PM and people are off the streets by 9PM) Ferries are hourly May to September when the tourists are here. They shut down for Hurricanes, Blizzards, and Squalls and some large electrical storms. A Vincent Price/Betty Davis movie (Whales of August) was filmed on one of the islands, so that's the "hot spot" that most tourists go to by ferry. Also tobacco is illegal in Portland but Marijuana is legal.

"Also many towns in Maine have bans on tobacco (you can be arrested if caught owning it) and some have bans on alcohol.

"One beach front town (OOB's neighbour, Ocean Park) has a ban on: tobacco, alcohol, Muslims, Jews, and "Christians of debatable faiths (meaning Mormons, Seventh Day Adventists, and Jehovah's Witnesses - I asked) you can be arrested for any of those "crimes". I once tried to buy a house in Ocean Park (in 2006) and was told by the Ocean Park Real Estate (the ONLY real estate agancey approved by the Ocean Park Commity to sell houses) that I was not allowed to buy property in Ocean Park because I was #1 not Human and #2 not Christian "our town has standards you know" they said. Ocean Park is a town that thinks it's a gated community.

"Most residents of Old Orchard, Ocean Park, and Pine Point (the 3 sister towns that share the same beach) could be described as "red necks"

"Houses are TINY. The average 4 room house is 20feet by 20feet, and the 4 room are 1 bedroom (that sleeps up to 8) and a kitchenette/dinette combo and a bathroom (water closet) and a"living room" that is too small to fit a sofa in so has lawn chairs in it instead.

"One room 12x12 "beach cabins" with no kitchen, no plumbing, and a port-a-potty on the lawn for a bathroom, are very common. A few hundred families have that set up here in OOB...."

The half-Elf suddenly stopped talking and looked very troubled.

"That is most definitely GhoulSpawn," Unicorn said to Quaraun. "Him be reading one of them cyclops oPiedias in his head again."

"No," he said shaking his head. "Forget everything I just said. It didn't happen yet. Not for you. Oh dear. I'm in the right place, but I'm in the wrong time. I don't know when I am. You died a long time ago. I forgot."

"I died?"

"Centuries ago."

"Are you sure you know who I am?"

Gremlin stared at Quaraun. Then stared at Unicorn. Then back to Quaraun.

"You're the Grand High Emperor of the Triple Planets."

"I suppose."

"And he's a unicorn. Though he doesn't look like one right now."

"Do you know our names?"

"Names?"

"Yes. We do have names."

"Names."

"People in the future still use names don't they?"

"I'm sorry. I forgot your name."

"Really? How'd you do that?"

"You died four hundred years ago. I've forgotten a lot of things." 

"Are you sure you're okay?"

"They did something to my head."

"Who did?"

"Checka."

"Checka?" 

"He used to be ZooLock. He changed bodies. He's not a squid any more. No Thullid is now. Don't trust ZooLock. Never trust ZooLLock. He's not your friend."

"We seem to have lost him. AGAIN. He keeps running away."

"Is ZooLock with you?"

"He was. Highwaymen attacked us and he escaped."

"Escaped. I remember. You had him in chains. In the old cathedral."

"What old cathedral?"

"It hasn't happened yet."

"I guess not."

"That's good. That means there's still time. I'm not too late."

"Too late for what?"

"You're hurt. Your leg. The Hell Hounds bit you."

"Yes they did."

"How long ago did that happen?"

"A few hours ago."

"I'm in the right time. And the right place. This is where I should be. I didn't miss it."

"What are you trying to not miss?"

"Let ZooLock go and take GhoulSpawn instead."

"Why?"

"So they don't kill him. Please. Let him live. He's so scared. He needs your help, but he won't ask for it. He scared of everything. He's scared of you. He's especially scared of the Phooka. But he trusts HellBorne and he shouldn't. He needs to trust you instead."

"I don't understand."

"There isn't time to explain. There's a hurricane coming. It'll be here soon. Here..."

The old half-Elf handed Quaraun a small box.

"What's this?"

"Candy. You like candy. Sugar cubes. Pink. All these years, I never knew what happened. Strange I had them with me just now. Didn't plan to. You'll like those. I like those. You'll love those. We never did figure out what happened to you. You'll find the cathedral soon. These will be gone by then, but you can get more from GhoulSpawn. I always have them with me. More now then I used to. I stole the Gremlin from hippies. Found a lot of strange things in that car."

"You know you don't make a lot of sense when you talk, right?"

"That would be the sugar cubes."

"Do you... Need help... Or something? You... You seem out of sorts."

"They put a needle in my eye. Sliced up my brain. Parts of my memories are gone. I have to pretend I don't remember you. They'll do another lobotomy if I mention you. They cut pieces out of my brain. Pink penguins help me forget what they do to me. I'm so confused now. They locked me up in a padded cell, for decades and wouldn't let me out. Alone. Solitary confinement. I'm crazy you know. That's what they tell every one. If I mention the Pink Necromancer, they say 'He wasn't real; He never existed; Just a figment of your imagination.' I was alone for decades. In a room smaller then a box. White room. In White Rock. Padded walls. And a straight jacket. That's what they did with me after they killed you. I'm free now. But they shut down the portals. Sealed every thing off. I've had to start all over. I've only been able to find a few. I try to remember where all the portals were. But they cut pieces out of my brain. I don't have the intelligence I used to have. My head hurts all the time now."

"Are you okay?"

"No. I'm barely surviving these days." 

"I can always find Black Tower. It exists in every space of every time of every dimension, on every planet, in every galaxy. I don't know how. Or why. It's like that volcano, your Lich used to live in. It exists everywhere and no where at the same time."

"What's Black Tower?"

"You'll see it soon. Don't go there. Just take GhoulSpawn away from HellBorne. Don't let them kill him. It's good to see you again. I miss you. I miss both of you."

"Are you GhoulSpawn?"

"GhoulSpawn's dead. I just live in his body. I'm not GhoulSpawn. I'm The Gremlin who lives in his body."

"Are you a Thullid?"

"Have we met yet?"

"I'm sorry?"

"No. I'm sorry. It's been four hundred years since I saw you last. I've forgotten your name. I'm old. I've forgotten a lot of things. They cut out pieces of my brain. Forgetting your name... they erased you from history. No one remembers your name. They did something to my head. To make me forget you. But I didn't forget. But I did forget your name. I'm sorry. I wish I could remember your name."

"Quaraun."

"Quaraun," Gremlin whispered slowly to himself. "Quaraun Swanzen, father of King Vielder. And Melaca..."

"I am father to no king."

"You haven't built the Twighlight Manor yet?'

"The what?"

 "Ongadada hasn't happened yet, has it?"

"What?"

"What year is it?"

"I don't know. I can't count. I don't know numbers."

"You look young."

"Do I?"

"How old are you?"

"I'm 400 hundred. At least."

"You are young. You're too young. I'm in the wrong time. It's hard to control the portals. I can get to the right places, but not the right times."

"Are you okay? You sound confused."

"Have we met yet?"

"You already asked that."

"You didn't answer. What's my name?"

"You said Glinter the first time we meet and GhoulSpawn the second time."

"Glinter? Have you recently met Glinter?"

"Uhm... Why are you talking about yourself like you are not yourself?"

"Time travel. Though I probably shouldn't have said that. Oh dear. You're not supposed to know that. I so am so differently in the wrong place. Have you recently met Glinter? Are the Sun Elves still alive?"

"I'm not sure what you mean. Are the Sun Elves dead?"

"Oh, I'm very in the wrong time. You haven't seen Black Tow..." Gremlin stopped, stood up and turned around scanning the horizon, trying to gain his bearings of where exactly he was.

"Have you met The Eel Kat yet?"

"The what?"

"A black Kat. Raises eels."

"I think I'd remember that."

"Oh you would. You don't forget a talking Kat. She's not from this time. This place. This planet. This galaxy. She's here to stop Ongadada. Their planet was destroyed in the battle. When you meet her. Do whatever she says."

"Uhm. Okay?"

"You haven't meet HellBorne yet."

"HellBorne? You keep saying that name. I don't HellBorne." 

"You don't know HellBorne yet. That's good."

"Is it?"

"There's still time to stop you."

"Stop me?"

"You can't do what you are going to do."

"What am I going to do?"

"You're gonna meet an evil wizard and you're gonna kill him, which is a good thing, it's gonna save a lot of lives, but... you can't do it."

"Why not?"

"You have to stop him from killing GhoulSpawn instead. It's going to set in motion the events which cause Ongadada to happen."

"What's Ongadada?"

"Every one dies. The whole planet. The whole solar system. Billions of people. Dead in the blink of an eye. It's how King Vielder's reign of terror got started. We have to stop Ongadada. Please. Go back. Don't keep following this road. Just go the other way."

"Why?"

"I can't... I've told you too much already. It's not good to know your future. I can't tell you more. Just find a different road. Please. I have to go."

"Who are you?"

"I'm afraid I don't know what year it is." Gremlin sounded confused. "Have you been to White Rock yet?"

"White Rock?" Unicorn asked. "What that?"

"It's a hospital full of trapped souls," Gremlin said glumly. "Don't ever go there."

"But what is the hospital full of trapped souls for?"

"It's a place run by Faeries. The decided enough was enough and gathered up every last magical being they could find to... to... sort of sterilize them. Neutralize their magical abilities and prevent them from reproducing more magical beings. And... kill the ones they can't subdue. They've nearly eradicated the Thullids and Elves are all but extinct. There are exactly five Phookas left on the planet, Gnomes and Dwarves have been gone for centuries. Humans have spread like a plague. There are eight billion Humans on the planet now.  And Vincent van Gogh's impressionistic strokes, replicated in the right place, can change the shape of Faerie's real Starry Night."

"Vincent Van Gogh? Who him?"

"No one you'd have heard of yet. I think I've gone too far back in time. Forget you saw me." 

"Are we friends?" Quaraun asked. "In the future."

"We were."

"But not any more?"

Gremlin shook his head and looked away.

"You forgot my name. That means you haven't seen me in a long time. You said I died. What happened?"

"You died. You died a long time ago. I'm sorry."

"Was it your fault I died?"

"No. But I think I could have saved you and I didn't. I was scared. I could have saved you. I chose not to and I regret it. I was too scared of Harrier. He did what no one else could do. I didn't think he would kill you. I didn't think he could. I didn't know any one could. I'm so sorry. I didn't know what he was gonna do."

"What did he do?"

"He killed his grandfather." 

Gremlin's eyes gazed to Unicorn. 

"Permanently. So he couldn't come back. He knew how to kill Liches." 

He looked back to Quaraun. 

"The Phookas are viscous. In the future they'll have technology... science ... magic... magic you can't even begin to comprehend. A Phooka worse then King Gwallmaiic is going to rise up. Blackbird. Esmerald Blackbird. And a second Phooka, the brother of the first, Harrier, is going to rise up against him. If you ever cross paths them them: Blackbird won't hurt you, not once he knows who you are, you tell him who you are, and he won't hurt you. He loves his grandfather. Idolizes him. Wants to be him, but Harrier will kill you. He'll kill both of you. Don't trust Harrier. He's lived with the Humans too long. He blends in with Human society. Cool, calm, and collected. Every one thinks he's good, but he's not. He's gonna kill the Lich and then he's gonna kill you. And then he's gonna trap me in some sort of weird time loop that I can't get out of. It keeps sending me all over the place. Different times. Various points of your life. But I can't get back to the day you died. I could stop it if I could get back there. I never know what year it is. I think, that for you... this may be the first time we've met. I'm not Glinter anymore. Nor GhoulSpawn. I'm not an Elf anymore either..."

"Not an Elf anymore? Are you Thullid now?" 

"He was your friend. I'm sorry. I did not want to kill him. GhoulSpawn's dead. I just live in his body."

"So you are a Thullid."

"Yes. A Jelly Fish like you. I could have left this body, years ago. But he was your friend and were devastated when he died. I continued to live in his body, rather then change bodies like I should have. Now I'm trapped in this body forever and I'll die when it finally grows too old, which it will do soon. The bones grow stiff and the muscles week. If I could leave into another body, I would live on for many more centuries as we Thullid should, but this body has grown old and is reaching the natural end that your friend would have had, had I not killed him and taken his body. I'm sorry. I didn't chose this body. Don't let him go back to HellBorne. Take him away from this place. If the Thullids don't implant him, he won't die, and I'll never exist, and none of this will have happened." 

"Who's HellBorne?"

"They killed him. HellBorne's gonna kill him. He's innocent. GhoulSpawn doesn't know what HellBorne is doing. He's not involved in what they're doing. He doesn't know what they're planning. Please, get him away from HellBorne. He won't leave on his own. Don't trust ZooLock. Keep him away from GhoulSpawn. I'm The Gremlin. GhoulSpawn died centuries ago for me, but I think for you, it's about to happen. The Kats think I'm trying to help them stop Ongadada to save the galaxy. I'm not so noble. I loved you very much. I still do. I never stopped loving you. If I can stop Ongadada, Harrier won't have reason to come after you and you won't die... or at least not how you did."

"You watched me die. I can see it your eyes."

Gremlin's eyes glazed over, staring off into the distince as the horrors of Quaraun's death played over again in his mind.  He closed his eyes trying to block out the image.

"I'm not trying to save the world. I just want to change the events of the past, so you don't have to die. You shouldn't have died. Not like that. I will lay a thousand years of legacy and tradition at your feet, if your heart will beat but once more."

Gremlin's voice cracked as he fought back tears.

"I have to go. Don't follow this road. Please."

Before Quaraun could say anything, the strange orange robed wizard vanished as quickly as he had appeared.

"What were that?" Unicorn asked Quaraun.

"I'm not sure."

"Him look very old."

"He did."

"Was that GhoulSpawn?"

"I think so."

"Him must be nigh on a thousand years old."

"I noticed."

"He still has sheep."

"I noticed that too."

"Him were so very young last time we saw him."

"He was."

"That were only a day ago."

"It was."

"Him really is time traveller, yes?"

"I think he is."

"T'ink what him says be true?"

"I don't know. But I think," Quaraun turned around. "I'm not gona tempt fate and we'll go this way instead, in case he was telling the truth. Glinter helped us before and so did GhoulSpawn. No reason to think he isn't helping us again now, no matter who he calls himself. Let's go."

Quaraun went back in the direction they had come from. Unicorn followed him.

"We need to find ZooLock," Quaraun said while he absent minded eat the sugar cubes The Gremlin had given him.

"Should ya be eating those?"

"Hmm?" Quaraun looked down at the pick crystals in his hand. "Why not?"

"Candy from strangers."

"Candy from GhoulSpawn."

"Strangest stranger we ever meet."

About The Novel:

Volume 11: The Summoner of Darkness

Back from the dead, once again with Unicorn in tow, and now with the Thullid priest ZooLock his prisoner shackled in chains, Quaraun is headed back to The Screaming Unicorn Tavern in Old Orchard Beach, but finds himself cursed with endless bad luck, as one thing after another drops out of the sky in his path.

Highwaymen, hellhounds, a turtle as big as a house, fire breathing butterflies, a train station from the 20th century, and a strange glow-in-the-dark demonic wizard with pockets full of sheep, who sits in a red armchair in poppy field in the 1400s reading 1980s spellbooks books by Gary Gaygax.

Quaraun goes head to head against The Gremlin, a time traveling wizard from the future who refuses to allow the Pink Necromancer back into Old Orchard Beach, where since his last visit, an evil Sorcerer named HellBorne has erected a giant cursed lighthouse known as The Black Tower.

ZooLock however has other plans, and while 4 rival wizards tear up the town in a wizard's duel, the Squid Headed Aliens From Neptune's Moon and their armies of JellyFish worshiping cultists arrive in town to preform a ritual that will unleash an Elder Brain Chaos Demon, known as The Sacred Pink JellyFish on the world. Too bad they didn't know she was already in town.

Did You Know?

The Summoner of Darkness is the first time The Gremlin, EelKat, Lyxiana, Bela, and Spriggan (all characters from the original 1978 edition of Friends Are Forever, Volume 1 of The Twighlight Manor Series) make appearances in The Quaraun series.

While most of the Quaraun series is written with Quaraun as the only point of view character, EelKat, the primary point of view character of the Twighlight Manor series, alternates with Quaraun as a point of view character in Summoner of Darkness.

The novel tells 2 stories side by side, with all odd numbered chapters telling Quaraun's version of the story in the 1400s, and all even numbered chapters being written as letters from EelKat in the 1980s to her sister Lynxian.

EelKat is a 4th wall meta breaking narrator.


Answering Reader Questions:
GhoulSpawn's Sheep Explained

A staple in every story that features GhoulSpawn, is his glittering technicolour herd of sheep, that gather around him to listen as he reads Dungeon's & Dragons manuals, while sitting in a red armchair, in the middle of some field.

I own the red chair, btw, which you see me sitting in in my BookTube videos while I read. You can see it in this video here:

The 2 most common reader questions asked about GhoulSpawn are:

  1. What the hell is it with the sheep? They don't serve any plot point and seem to be there for no reason at all. What the hell?
  2. Does GhoulSpawn have sex with his sheep or not?

The first story to feature Gremlin as a main character was The Wild Years, published in 1987. In this story he is a member of PETA on a mission to shut down Procter & Gamble, after encountering a local sheep farm that supplies lambs for Iams dogfood. In the slaughterhouse on the farm is a conveyor belt, onto which baby lambs are herded, then dropped into a grinder where they are chopped up while still alive.

If you have a stomach strong enough to view such things, you can see BOTH the Proctor & Gamble animal by-product grinder and McDonald's hamburger making grinder in this video here, which shows it being used on baby chickens and baby cows.

(The chicken grinder shown in this video is P&G's Iams dog food processing plant and the cow grinder seen here are Mcdonald's hamburgers be made for you.)

Please be warned, this anti-war, human rights, and animal rights protest video shows EXTREMELY GRAPHIC real life footage of poachers, slaughterhouses, human trafficing, KKK attacks, beheaded ISIS victims, and children killed by landmines.

VIEWER DISCRETION IS STRONGLY ADVISED! 

Back to GhoulSpawn, the series' resident uber extreme animal rights activist...

This was a very real farm and a very real machine which I had seen when I was 8 years old, and was the reason I became an animal rights activist and a vegetarian. This aspect of GhoulSpawn's character, his being a vegan animal rights activist with a vendetta against P&G is based off my own life. (If you did not know, I am the founder of the real world Procter & Gamble Boycott and many of the Twighlight Manor books were written specifically for the boycott, thus why a character like The Gremlin took centre stage.)

Readers came to know that if Gremlin was in the story, so too would be references to the evils of Procter & Gamble, Iams dogfood's horrific sheep grinding machine, and mysterious disappearing sheep, along with his random ramblings against McDonald's, Burger King, and other giants in the animal abuse industry.

Unfortunately for GhoulSpawn, he's often rambling on deaf ears, as Quaraun, Unicorn, and others from the 1400s, have no way to comprehend the future atrocities being described by the time traveller. The reactions of people from the 1400s varies from thinking GhoulSpawn is a raving lunatic (thus why he is dubbed "GhoulSpawn the Crazed") to people understanding that he has seen something which has horribly upset him and feeling pity for him, but not really being able to understand exactly what he is talking about.

And then, when he can't get people to listen to him, he starts pulling sheep out of his pockets, not realizing that back in the 1400s he's surrounded by superstitious people who view magic, Wizards, and such things as evil sorcery and people practicing them as witches to be burned and destroyed. As a teenager from the 1970s, GhoulSpawn has as much trouble comprehending the 1400s mind as they have comprehending him.

As no one but GhoulSpawn can get anything out of or even see anything in his pockets, he can safely stuff sheep in his pockets and then innocently stand there while people run around like mad trying to figure out where all the sheep are disappearing to. He'll stuff another sheep in his pockets every time no one is looking and will continue to do this until the entire herd is gone/in his pockets. At which point he'll then jump back in his 1974 AMC Gremlin, fly back to the 1400s and set the sheep loose in green pastures.

GhoulSpawn has a particular affinity for Cotswold sheep, and his habit of stealing/rescuing sheep and taking them to the past, is used as an explanation for why Cotswolds were so very overpopulated in Medieval times, yet today are considered an endangered species.

Over the years it became a running gag in the series for other characters to bully and tease Gremlin claiming he had a sex fetish for sheep. However, GhoulSpawn does not have sex with his sheep and often seen deeply upset over the accusation. Because most people in the 1400s do not believe GhoulSpawn is a time traveller from the future, they say that he made up his story of rescuing sheep from "the gambler" to cover up habits of beasillity. Quaraun and Unicorn remain two of the only people to believe GhoulSpawn's story as he has taken them to the future and they have seen the things he speaks of for themselves.

The reason for GhoulSpawn's obsession with sheep, is a secret he rarely reveals and is known only to his closet friends: while the series often bills him as a half-Elf, leaving people to assume in also half-Human, is is rather instead half-Demon, specifically he is an Uruisg, which is a Scottish Sheep Demon, a man with the upper body of a man and the lower body of a Cotswold sheep.

In keeping with the actual Irish, Welsh, and Scottish folklore about Uruisg, GhoulSpawn is somewhat of a trickster and causes chaos to ensure whenever he is around. Also like the actual folklore he is a notorious thief and pickpocket, compulsively unable to control his urge to simply pick up and take every shiny object he sees.


Who Is GhoulSpawn?

This is the first time GhoulSpawn appears using the name GhoulSpawn. In previous volumes he was using the name Glinta instead.

In the Twighlight Manor series he is known as The Gremlin.

Quaraun's teenaged lover GhoulSpawn is a "natural born" Sorcerer. He is a half-Elf/half Demon. 

GhoulSpawn's father was an evil Demon who commanded an army of Ghouls. Because of this, he was known simply as "The Ghoul". 

GhoulSpawn's mother was a Sun Elf whom had fallen in love with The Ghoul, but was forbidden by her family to have contact with him. She in turn ran away with her Demon lover, thus causing a war between Elves and Demons.

The Sun Elves tell a story of how their Princess was kidnapped and raped by the Ghoul, thus she gave birth to the Spawn of the Ghoul. Though his mother named him Glinta, she died while he was still very young, and his Elven kin, took to calling him GhoulSpawn as a way to brand him not one of them.

GhoulSpawn is an interdimensional time traveller, because he is unable to remain in any one time, place or dimension long, because he was born in the Hell Dimension, which exists outside of the realm of time and space as we know it. The Ghoul tried to escape the Sun Elves by going to the distant future (1974) and leaving his half-Elf son and the boy's mother there to live among a band of LSD addicted hippie Humans whom drove a 1974 AMC Gremlin.

The Sun-Elves eventually found their missing she-Elf and brought her back to the 1400s where she belonged, but she refused to leave her half-Demon son behind.

After his mother's death, GhoulSpawn was made a servant to his High Elf step-father and full blooded Elf step siblings, all of whom abused him and treated him like a slave. He grew up constantly being told he, because he was only a half-Elf, was unloved and unwanted and should have been killed at birth, resulting in the very low self esteem he has.

Neither Demons nor half-Elves are considered welcomed members of society, both being forced to live in small tribal groups on the outskirts of civilization. Both are often stoned to death or hung if they dare set foot in a city.

GhoulSpawn being both a Demon and a half-Elf is doubly mistreated by the majority of the world's population. He takes to travelling with Quaraun because Quaraun simply accepts GhoulSpawn as he is and is not bothered by being seen in the company of either a Demon or a half-Elf.

There are several instances when people try to bully GhoulSpawn and Quaraun (a high ranking full-blooded aristocratic High Elf) is quick to stand up for him, protecting and defending the half-Elf. Quaraun is often classified by other Elves as "insane" simply because he is willing to be friends with a half-Elf.

GhoulSpawn has a speech impediment which lessens when he is relaxed and grows worse the more nervous or frightened he becomes.

Around calm laid back characters like Quaraun, GhoulSpawn speaks without difficulty. However around domineering, headstrong, or bullying characters such as Unicorn or HellBorne, GhoulSpawn develops a stutter, making it difficult for him the get to the end of a sentence. 

Because he is a Demon, GhoulSpawn was born with natural magical abilities, making him a rare "natural born wizard" or sorcerer.

GhoulSpawn is typical of a Sorcerer in the Quaraun series, in that he has Demon blood, was thus born with a Demon's natural ability to cast magic on some levels, has taking to self-teaching himself how to control the magic powers he was born with, is outcast from society because of his link to Demons, and is generally not well thought of, even though he is not in any way evil, and is in fact the only part of the cast who could be considered anything close to being a Hero.

Being a time traveller, there are times when Quaraun encounteres both GhoulSpawn and his future counterpart Gremlin in the same novel.

This is the first novel in the series to feature multiple versions of GhoulSpawn in a single novel.


GhoulSpawn remains one of the most hated and most loved characters in the series. People who dislike him, absolutely despise him and have gone so far as to request I remove his character from the series entirely. While people who love him, often cite him as their favourite character and often request I add him into more stories more often.

For the people who don't like him, I'm sorry, but he remains one of my favourite characters of the series and he's not going anywhere.

For the people who want to see more of him: there are plans to make changes to several stories in the series to include him in the future editions, more often.

The Quaraun Series On Amazon:

I am wondering why has Amazon moved the Quaraun books to the category "Transgender Romance" and also "Gay Erotica"? The base story is a deeply depressed, suicidal, drug addict Elf who's lover commit suicide and he's trying not to do the same. It's an old Elf in a tavern, monologuing a lot of flashbacks and back story scenes of his youth. These stories are dark, bloody, angsty, full of drug use, murder, rape, Medieval torture, mental/physical/emotional abuse, and references to depression and suicide - no romance in it, unless you count the occasional (and usually brutally violent) rape scenes that show up in nearly every volume - sorry - no clue what Amazon is thinking or why they moved these to Romance and Erotica, but these books are NOT even close to being Romance or Erotica on any level at all. When I published these books I put them in "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi". If they show up in any category other then "Dark Fantasy" and "Yaoi", it's because Amazon put them there without my authorization or approval.

Reacting To Old Orchard Beach's
White Power Gay Hating Over Reaction Ban
Of The Quaraun Series:

  1. Question Everything Before Putting It In Your World 

The 4 door white truck continues to sit at the end of my drive way (146 Portland Ave, Old Orchard Beach, Maine) near every night around sunset, reeving it's engine and squealing it's tires, with the driver yelling anti-gay threats and obscenities out the window. He continues to do the same thing at my dad's apartment building (Biddeford Maine) a few times a week, usually in mid to late afternoon time. He continues to follow me to shopping to various stores in various towns throughout the states.

Phrases he yells from the truck include:

"Kill or be killed remember Saco Shaws all transsexuals are alike"

"I keep a gun under the seat of my truck, I'm gonna use it to shoot you in the head, you transvestite freak"

if cars are going by he yells to them: "that thing is Ken's son, look at how's it's dressed; it's insane, it has autism, we can't allow that thing and it's gay cars in our family friend town of Old Orchard Beach"

He often babbles deranged ramblings about something he calls "the gay-pocalypse", raving lunacy about how "all the gays are gathering" on his doorstep. He raves some crazy nonsense about how Armageddon is coming and the war to end all wars will be "the gays against the Christians" and Christians have to be ready to "kill the gays"

My car is the Autism Awareness Car and had 2.5million marbles glued to it (I have Autism - savant - Kanner's syndrome) he claims tat my car "is gay" because of what it looks like. My car has been vandalized several dozen times, including to have the tires slashed 7 times in 6 months.

After dark often around 10PM, he stands at the end of the logging road across the street from me and shoots at my motohome (in February 2014 he shot holes in my neighbour's barn while doing this). I have video footage of 3 of his shootings at me here:  https://youtu.be/NUebzJ9sz9U and here: https://youtu.be/C4dZbgG-Smw

This has gone on since August 2013 now, in addition to all the vandalism, hate crimes, pet beheadings, etc that has happened, including the bomb that blew up our house in 2006.

As you know, that whole time I had not been able to get a plate number on the truck. He as just here again, and I just realized why I could not get a plate number... there are no plates on the truck, either on the front or on the back. However, as he was driving away today... I noticed, there is a plate, stuck up in the back window of the truck, where it can barely be seen, deliberately obscured from view behind a silver tool box.
