Peter S. Beagle newsletter story

“Being an Entirely True Account…” by Peter S. Beagle

Sign up for The Raven newsletter, occasionally get Beagle fiction in your inbox.

This is a short  short story, a nod to Avram Davidson, that will be included with a Davidson hardback as a fund-raiser for The Other Change of Hobbit.

The eminent researcher, A.D. seeks out a manticore and interviews it. (There aren’t enough manticore stories…)

Interesting that the mantichora are described as a wandering and persecuted population, but this one is found in Argentina. Ah. There are yeti, who attack mantichora on sight. Allegory complete.


Writer, publisher. Hobbies include reading, studying magic & illusions from a historical/theoretical perspective, and playing ultimate frisbee.
