Magnus Opum

By Jonathan Gould

Comedy & satire, Fantasy | eBook


Magnus Mandalora never planned to go out into the big, wide world. He thought he’d live out his life in his homely little village, happily cooking and eating pflugberry pies. But fate had other ideas. Before he knows it, Magnus has embarked on an incredible adventure. He discovers a world full of marvels and wonder, surprises and delights. But it’s also a world of perils and danger. As Magnus finds himself right in the middle of a long-running war between the fair and noble Cherines and the vile and despicable Glurgs, he faces challenges beyond anything he could have imagined.



I’ve lived in Melbourne, Australia all my life, except when I haven’t (all right, I admit to at least two stints in the USA – Albany, New York and Seattle, Washington). I never deliberately set out to be funny. For a while, I actually tried to be serious, but that only made people laugh more. So in the end I decided I might as well go with the flow. I’ve done quite a bit of comedy writing, both for the theatre (university revues) and radio. I’ve even had a couple of attempts at the great Australian sitcom (maybe the less said about them the better). But in the end, it was the written form that won me over. I love writing stories, and I’m always searching for something new. My stories can be a bit tricky to describe. You may think of them as comic fantasies, or modern fairytales for the young and the young at heart. I want to surprise and delight readers. I want to get them to see the world in ways they never considered before. I want my readers to smile and laugh, and occasionally even shed a tear. Over the years, my stories have been shortlisted in a number of writing competitions, including The Age Short Story Competition (The Age is a leading Australian newspaper), The Age Funny Short Story Competition, and the Goodreads Choice awards. My writing has been compared to Douglas Adams, Monty Python, A.A. Milne, Lewis Carroll, the Goons, Dr Seuss, Terry Pratchett, and even Enid Blyton (in a good way).
