BRIAN FROUD'S GOBLINS 10 1/2 ANNIVERSARY EDITION

BRIAN FROUD AND ARI BERK    Book Number: 92388    Product format: Hardback

Hot off the press, this new and expanded edition of Brian Froud's classic fantasy exposé of the Goblin Universe will delight old fans and captivate new ones with its deep probe into the murky underworld of Codex Goblinensis. The goblin world is never far below the surface of our own, and the Introduction recounts how Brian's lifelong investigation into the Faery realm reached its apogee in a strange, blurred, but undeniable and strangely familiar photograph of an actual goblin. In every mortal home, there is a door to the goblin realm, always found in the Darkest Corner where light never falls. Slime trails, oily puddles and foul odours are signs that goblins have been at their dedicated work of causing chaos wherever these Lords and Ladies of Misrule can get a foothold. Brian's investigations have been greatly facilitated by Gargle the Scribe, who was finally enticed into communicating in English by the offer of seven cans of miniature hot dogs. As the pages unfold, we meet leading goblins Lumin, Floo and Bloewsabella, the Bullying Back Breakers Bäätten and Päätten who cause joint and muscle pain, Dinbole the Whittler, keeper of the Great Goblin scraping Scalpel, the stone-flinger Aggat and Oorudun the Stupid, one of the Roaring Boys and Trumpeting Terror of the Two Kingdoms. A study of Mr Froud in his leafy Brackenfrock is believed to be the only photograph actually taken by goblins themselves. 100pp, padded cover, spookily illustrated in colour on every page, with an anti-goblin talisman concealed in a secret envelope.
