Not all goblins are bad.
To be sure, most goblins are, but Ben is not like most goblins. He doesn’t have the same abilities, isn’t interested in causing mischief, and most disgraceful of all, has a secret admiration of everything human.
Tired of not fitting in with his own kind, Ben escapes to the nearby human city of Saint Louis eager to start a new life. Finding a job and a place to live prove a lot easier than he expects, but they don't quell the loneliness he feels inside. Even in Saint Louis, a friend is not an easy thing to find for Ben. After all, a good goblin in a human city is still just a goblin.
But Ben is determined to make the most of it, at least until his past catches up to him.
The first in a series of short novels set in Saint Louis in the early 1900s and based on the 13th century Latin tale, The Benevolent Goblin.
