National Woelf Dietrich Week in Luvmbookistein

Given that the good people of Luvmbookistein celebrate "National Woelf Dietrich Week" this week, I thought I'd share an oldie with you. It's been a while since I mentioned The Seals of Abgal. I've updated it and reformatted everything and I made it look better than before. One has to. Technology keeps improving the way … Continue reading National Woelf Dietrich Week in Luvmbookistein

#Art of Fantasy 51: Bluefooted (Erin Kelso)

American artist Erin Kelso, aka Bluefooted, calls herself a poor student and non-professional artist on her Deviant Art profile. And yet, while researching this wonderfully mysterious artist, I found mentioned in two other articles that she has a Ph.D. in Evolutionary Biology and a Master's in Zoology. I get the feeling she is one of those … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 51: Bluefooted (Erin Kelso)

No More Words

I took part in a Flash Fiction Competition hosted by the César Egido Serrano, Museum of Words last year (or maybe it was earlier this year, I don't remember).

The Meaning Behind The Name Woelf Dietrich

Also, there is a hotel by the same name in Austria, but that is another story. I discovered the history behind Wolfdietrich … Continue reading The Meaning Behind The Name Woelf Dietrich

“The Dead God” and Other Updates

I want to update you guys on the projects I'm busy with this year, which I haven't really done, apart from cryptic mentions here and there. Last year I wrote a proposal for a game I called, "The Dead God". I based the premise on Slavic lore and it featured a hero named Krakus, veteran … Continue reading “The Dead God” and Other Updates

The Morrígan: Some Historical Context

I like to play with mythology in my stories. To compare them and mix them and really dig into the histories of ancient civilizations from across our little world. You find interesting stories. Stories of old gods who had to destroy even older gods because they didn't like being told what to do or because … Continue reading The Morrígan: Some Historical Context
