Which is a delightful and lovely description of the Gobbelino London books, and much more polite than mentioning all the bad jokes, terrible puns, and cats behaving badly. Well, not badly. Just like cats, really …
But you’re here because you’re not quite sure where to start with feline PIs and their human sidekicks, not to mention plagues of niceness, philosophical donkeys, and mermaids who are not as advertised. And while I still can’t quite explain the mermaids (or the unicorns), I can help with the reading list …
The Gobbelino London series is now complete, so you can read it cover to cover any time you like!
|The Cat Did It
|Free short story collection
(Not really a prequel, but a good introduction to the machinations of cats …)
|A Scourge of Pleasantries
|Find a missing book. Easy money, right? Right. Except the book belongs to a sorcerer, and it’s intent of tearing us – and the world – apart …
|A Contagion of Zombies
|The dead are rising, and if we don’t stop them, fast, we’re going to be knee-deep in the zombie apocalypse before you can say mmm, brains …
|The Prim Reaper
|A trilogy of tales involving a certain doily-loving, baking-fixated reaper who we met in Contagion.
|A Complication of Unicorns
|When a man from Callum’s past turns up at our door claiming to have lost both the last herd of unicorns in England and his sister, I knew it should be a hard pass. The past has teeth.
|No One Expects Lemons
|A (long) short story regarding Dimly animal rescue, as encountered in Unicorns.
|A Melee of Mages
|Like it or not, when a sorcerer asks you to track a magician, you track a magician. It’s that or spend life as a hamster.
|On the Naming of Snakes
|A short story involving Green Snake’s true name, since we met him in Pleasantries and he refuses to leave.
|A Worry of Weres
|I had one rule. No weres. But with a sorcerer threatening me with an out of body experience, I’m open to negotiation.
|A Sorcerous Address
|A lengthy deleted scene from Weres, in which our scruffy heroes have the bright idea to break into a sorcerer’s house. Because what could possibly go wrong with that?
|A Menace of Mermaids
|The seaside was meant to be a safe place to hide out. We didn’t count on dodgy mermaids, one-eyed pirates, and the kraken cult …
|An Act of Piracy
|A lengthy short story involving pirates reclaiming their ships (well, one pirate, as met in Menace), as well as an actual short story involving housekeeping.
|A Collision of Catastrophes
|We were looking for a friend. What we’ve got is the end of the world – unless we can stop it first …
The series finale in all its messy glory.
|After the End
|A collection of short stories from the end of the world as we know it (or at least as Gobbelino does)
Questions? Unsure about something? Problems with the downloads? I may not be able to answer (especially on technical details), but I can certainly make sympathetic noises and discuss trolls’ dress preferences.
