The Assassination of Brangwain Spurge
by M.T. Anderson
It’s elves vs. goblins in this creepily illustrated tale of an elfin historian, Bragwain Spurge, venturing into enemy territory. Wars between the elves and goblins have made relations tense. No elf has returned alive from the goblin kingdom in over one hundred years. Brangwain is sent to sweeten relations by returning an ancient artifact. His host, Archivist Werfel, actually looks forward to hosting another historian. Too bad snooty Brangwain is such a disagreeable houseguest.
