You’ve found the internet home of the
Prophet of Panamindorah Series
Eve is an inquisitive baby rat who regularly escapes from her cage. One night she meets a strange creature in a glass tank across the room—a boa constrictor named Malachi. The snake is amused by Eve’s questions, and he awes her with stories of the wilds where he was caught. What will happen to their fragile friendship when Eve discovers what Malachi eats? Can they devise a solution that will save both Malachi and Eve’s family of rats?
Feeding Malachi is a 6,000-word story, divided into 10 short chapters. The story is illustrated with beautiful ink drawings by the Sarah Cloutier, who is also the cover artist. The story has a few scary moments, but also a happy ending. If you and your child enjoyed the whimsical dialogue of The Little Prince or the loveable characters in Janell Cannon’s Stellaluna and Verdi, you will enjoy the adventures of Eve and Malachi.

I’m podcasting a new Panamindorah story! It’s a dark, nautical fantasy in full cast audio. Illustrations accompany each episode. Go to www.cowrycatchers.com to start listening.
I’m back from Tampa! And apparently it’s Ory Con. Chris Lester of Metamor City is here for the convention and did the third drawing with me. Tamara is the winner, and I’ll be contacting her.
Sorry for the short notice, but if any listeners are in Portland for Ory Con, I’d love to meet you. I’ll be at Chris’s panels on Friday.
Sarah won the quotes contest with 8 correct answers. Congrats! She asked for a drawing of a shelt skeleton, specifically lower body, so here’s my sketch.
In addition, a sample of the Cowry Catchers illustrations for Part I are here. Also, although I didn’t mention it in the podcast, Rah Cloutier did some sketches of the main characters for Cowry Catchers when she was trying to get a feel for anatomy. They’re not wearing clothes, but they’re also not very detailed.
Here’s my sketch of a pegasus skeleton, and here’s my DA gallery.
The Bunjee Venture by Stan McMurty is indeed available on Amazon for pennies. “The Old Gumbie Cat” is by T.S. Eliot, from his book of cat poems, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. It later became the raw material for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, Cats.
Hughes and I list 21 random book quotes (mostly fiction, certainly fictitious). Whoever gets the most correct gets to pick a character to be drawn by yours truly. Email hilton (at) fauness (dot) com.

Well, I didn’t win a Parsec this year, but I lost to Scott Sigler, so no shame in that. I’ll post a link to all the winners as soon as I can find one. I’m proud that I was a finalist, and I get to keep that stamp on my website. I’m planning to be at Dragoncon next year, so perhaps I’ll get to compete with Cowry Catchers.
In other news, this website is about to get an overhaul, so it will be changing over the next few days.
To all of you who are participating in my forums: thank you! If you haven’t dropped by to say hello, please do. People are actually talking over there. Makes me happy.
Edit: Wander Radio has compiled a list of the 2009 Parsec winners. Thanks, Jack!
I have returned with the contest prize for Lance! It’s a 3000 word story about Sevn, which I narrated myself.
