Portrait of a Ghoul #WeWriWa #8Sunday #SnipSun #SnippetSunday 15 November 2020


The Blurb
The fate of the Cosmos rests in the hands of an unlikely team of unusual friends. Will an exiled member of an ancient extraterrestrial race, a human ghost, and two ghouls be able to outfox an ancient evil and beat Nyarlathotep at his game before time runs out? This buddy story is the first in a series of New Cthulhu Mythos cliffhangers.

The Notes
Last time Ketil called Robin's culinary tastes into question.

The Snippet

Entering the main sitting room area of the Dream House, the group noticed various portraits hanging on the wall. Little John sighed sadly as he beheld the picture of himself clad in a chef’s hat, wearing a white apron dusted with flour and stained variably with fruit fillings.

“Mates, I know that when you look upon me, you see nothing but a ‘orrible ghoul who wants nothing more than to sink his teeth into a chunk of rotting flesh,” he lamented.

“Well, as for me, I say, if the flesh suits, eat it,” Robin declared, eagerly ripping into the chunk of liver he was carrying.

“If you are what you eat, you must consume a fairly constant supply of arse,” Ketil snapped. “Your chum here is baring his soul, and the only words which comes from your mouth is dumb and self-absorbed. Be at least respectful and enjoy your offal in peace.”

  1. I think I would HAVE to be a zombie to enjoy offal. It was forced on me as a child, and long before I went to the dark side (became a vegetarian) I loathed it.
    Love the dialogue here.

  2. Yeahhhhh, still not a fan of the ghoul dietary choices LOL but you're keeping your characters very true to themselves! Well done snippet...

  3. As always, the banter between these characters is wonderful!

  4. Their banter cracks me up! An arse... too funny. :-)

  5. The "You are what you eat" line had me chuckling out loud. Charming snippet.

  6. These guys are a hoot. I apologize for being so late commenting on your post. NaNoWriMo got in the way.


I try to get comments published as quickly as possible. I have ADHD and anxiety and sometimes I need to work myself up to be able to respond to comments. I don't always reply to comments on my blog, but I do try to visit as many people as possible when I participate in blog hops. I share your work on the monthly Roost Recommendations posts at ornerybookemporium.blogspot.com so others can discover your work. I do read and appreciate your comments.
Sorry, the Captcha is back and this time it's staying. I was inundated with spam comments when I turned it off. I wish butt rash on all the spammers out there.
