In Goblin Hollow, Bartley and Olivia are known as cemetery
things. After washing up on its shore — lost, hungry, and beaten
by the sea — the first place they found shelter was a vast
cemetery and orchard owned by a lonely old man and his wife
who welcomed the frightened creatures into their home. And that
is where they would live and work and come to learn that Goblin
Hollow and its inhabitants were not to be feared. It was bizarre
luck they ended up somewhere mostly populated with the
strange and unusual, and was therefore so accepting of Bartley
and Olivia.
What is underneath the bandages of these two creatures?
I’m afraid I cannot tell. Is it grotesque or frightening? To some,
yes, quite possibly, but they were not always monsters. They
were once rather human, with somewhat un-human gifts. Their
bandages are worn to cover up what they were turned into by a
sinister, mad man.
The journey that led them to this sanctuary was long and
difficult and quite grim. What they endured, their escape, and
their perilous journey across an ocean, is a tale to be told at
another time.
