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 100: Mythology Through New Eyes

To celebrate the 100th episode of #Art of Fantasy I thought we'd celebrate the origin of fantasy. And because "#Art of Fantasy" focusses on art, it makes sense then to approach it from that angle. So, today we look at ancient folklore and mythology through the eyes of contemporary artists. Instead of the usual gods … Continue reading #Art of Fantasy 100: Mythology Through New Eyes

The Cobbler and the Dragon

#TheDeadGod There once lived a dragon named Smok in a cave deep inside a hill–or, if you prefer, a small mountain, although “a large hill” is probably closer to the truth–who found sustenance in sheep and virgins, and when there were no more virgins, peasants from a nearby village tasted just fine, though they lacked the richness and splendor of chaste flesh...

The Meaning Behind The Name Woelf Dietrich

A while ago I briefly mentioned that Woelf Dietrich is a pen name. I took it  from Wolfdietrich who is a German hero of romance. I thought it apt given my primary writing interest. 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
