“A landmark collection.” — Des Lewis, Real-Time Reviews
C. M. Muller lives in St. Paul, Minnesota with his wife and two sons - and, of course, all those quaint and curious volumes of forgotten lore. He is related to the Norwegian writer Jonas Lie and draws much inspiration from that scrivener of old. His tales have appeared in Shadows & Tall Trees, Supernatural Tales, The Yellow Booke, Xnoybis, and Visiak's Mirror.
