The Scriptlings

Dedicated to geeks and mortals alike

The Sales Pitch
Because there just wasn’t enough of that in your lives already

The Scriptlings is a tongue-in-cheek contemporary fantasy aimed at geeks and mortals alike.

It has been best described as the unlikely, yet strangely charismatic lovechild you would expect if Magic and Science were to have one too many drinks during a stand-up comedy show in Vegas.

The Scriptlings follows the story of Merkin and Buggeroff, two magician apprentices in a world where magicians are capitalists, computers are quasi-magical, and goats are sometimes invisible – all under the watchful eye of a wandering tribe of monosyllabic demigods.

Some Quotes
Because nothing kills a good sales pitch quite like a bad quote

Master Dung’s study was silent. So silent, in fact, that one might have been able to hear a gnat passing air, if only an obligingly flatulent gnat had happened nearby.

Simon knew for a fact that he was so hopelessly bad at seeing through camouflage that, if left alone in the forest, he might even attempt to make fire by rubbing two snakes together.

There was a rare quality about Nurse Grace’s smile. It was the knowledge that sooner or later her smile would inspire some witty observer to say something around the lines of, “Every time you do this, an angel farts”.

The fact that two of these quotes are fart jokes is completely accidental. If, however, you happen to be interested in the sub-genre, then rest assured, there’s more where that came from.

 

Cover Art
Because we can’t judge a book by its cover, but we do it anyway

The cover art was created by Travis Anderson, a young Vancouverite artist whom I have discovered on deviantART.

It all started with my vague idea that the cover should look like a door, with the mouse-shaped doorknocker as its main element. Kudos to Travis for turning this ambiguous set of instructions into art, and for coming up with all sorts of awesome ideas, such as the use of 1337 for the text.

Just in case you’re in an exploring mood, there are at least three Easter eggs hidden in the cover art, ranging from the artist’s signature to a Pseudo-Latin Java code.

One comment on “The Scriptlings

    Hi Sorin. I`m sorry to say that I haven`t read anything by you, yet as I am a pensioner and hard of spending. I will, of course, rectify this as soon as: A. I become rich, B. I save up enough money or C. I have a birthday. However, “Th3 Scriptlings” looks intriguing and I can`t wait for a birthday.

I know you have something cool to say:
