The Groll (Unabridged)

by Jim Fanshier

Open iTunes to Buy


In the style of Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels, an every-man character travels to a land filled with mythical characters. It's an adventure story, with the main character, George Taylor, having to confront and befriend pixies, elves, fairies, brownies, giants, dwarfs, mimis, sprites, satyrs, and mermaids. But there is one character that is the most feared, and hated of all. The groll. A species that kills and tortures for the pure pleasure of seeing the pain they inflict. The tales of their evil are endless. It's a love story as George risks his life to break a spell and return the love of his first, and only girlfriend, Justeen. It's a humorous story with a sarcastic twist, as the mermaids, brownies and other characters have human characteristics that would make them fit in on Earth as well as the magical land of Negani. And, like Jonathan Swift, it's also a story with many symbolic references to the cultures of the day. There are dozens of creatures that Americans know (pixies, fairies, trolls, mermaids), some creatures are from other cultures and countries (adlet, mimi, will o' wisp, bahamut), and some are unique to this story (chameli, drakata). All are thrown on the most boring, nerdy person in the world, George Taylor.
