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.
