Welcome to the world of magic, death, cat puns and heroes. This is a place where literal Death tries to find his place in a world with a magical phonebook and no concept of personal space, while a college student is faced off against old gods, wicked monsters and a whole host of nasties from history and beyond; this is a place where cats are armed to the claw with more guns than they can carry, but they speak in cat puns whenever possible; this is the strange world of Paul Carroll.
Come for the books, comics, illustrations and stay for a sense of humour that’s been broken and distorted by a life of writing and a stint working in a pun-filled t-shirt factory.
