The Land has been poisoned at the instigation of Lord Foul, who can be free only when it has been completely destroyed. I find myself revisiting it all again now that all of my grandparents are dead, now that my head is as bald by choice as that grandfather’s head was by nature, now that I’m cleaning his old work cap and wearing it around to protect my scalp.

The boy sails off to make his fortune and is captured and reportedly killed by pirates, after which the girl mourns for many years before reluctantly agreeing to marry the local ruler, Prince Humperdinck.

Books about WWI sit on my bookshelves, I read them for research, and every time I look at them I am in awe of what those men and women went through - the first world war. An ancient curse affects the current generation in The Burning (1993), and a high school experiment gone awry reanimates the dead in The Bad Girl (1998). Frank has spent his life in pursuit of such gratifications, and he is ruthless, amoral, and even cruel in his efforts to get what he wants. Will-o-the-Wisp (1976) casts the poet Robert Herrick as its protagonist, suggesting that his verse was inspired by his ability to sense the existence of magical alternate realities.
