I thought it would be cool to introduce you to each of the creators involved with Poor Wayfaring Strangers. The logical first choice was Gustav Carlson, whose contribution The Grinning God ran here between books 5 and 6.
Born and raised on a goat farm on top a mountain, Gustav Carlson spent his days naming an increasing number of goats Gruff. Partially in fear of bridge trolls that run rampant in the hills, but mostly because it adequately described most the goats he knew. Since then the trolls have gone extinct, and the goats Gruff are in his past. To fill that constant void, he now draws comics.
Eventually he plans to retire to Goat Island, a very real place.
