The Seals of Abgal

By Woelf Dietrich

Fantasy, Horror, Sci-Fi, Short stories, Paranormal | Paperback, eBook


Bookstore owner and novice antiquarian, Sebastian Kaine, is proud of his new profession and prouder still of the collection of antique books on the occult that he keeps locked away in the basement of his bookstore. But his little utopia is shattered one night when he wakes up in that same basement, bound and bloodied, his prized collection all but destroyed. Making matters worse are the two strange men responsible for the carnage. They want The Seals of Abgal and insist Sebastian is in possession of it. Though he denies having any knowledge of the book, Sebastian soon finds himself on the receiving end of a brutal interrogation — one, he fears, he may not survive. As he tries to stay alive, Sebastian discovers The Seals of Abgal is far more than just an ordinary grimoire, for it holds powerful secrets. Secrets that are older than time itself. And these men searching for it are no ordinary thugs. But then, Sebastian is no ordinary bookseller.

As a kid I consumed books and comics by the truckloads, reading anything from fantasy to westerns to science fiction. I wanted to stay in that dream state so I began making up my own stories, writing my first short story at 12. I also started drawing my own comics--little stick figures with dialogue balloons that later evolved into musclebound warriors and scantly clad vixens. I gave them battle axes and broadswords and unleashed them onto the world. A silent chaos ensued followed by crickets chirping and nothing much else, but boy, did I entertain myself. Alas, life kept interfering and I allowed it, and so nothing came from my artistic endeavors. After graduating high school I served a year in the military where I learned how to dig trenches, eat quickly, and miss girls. I travelled to Israel and lived on a Kibbutz for eight months, working in avocado fields and drinking cheap vodka. I sold pots and pans and educational toys in Africa for a while and almost got shot in Zimbabwe. I did a brief stint as a cartoonist somewhere and an even briefer stint as reporter somewhere else. Somehow, and maybe by accident, I ended up in law school and became a lawyer. I did that for almost a decade. These days I'm back to writing stories. A calling I ignored for far too long. I now live in New Zealand, and with a wife and kids, and a dog, I'll be staying put for the foreseeable future.
