Mulrox and the Malcognitos
No one who had a choice lived near the edge of the woods—only the oddballs and outcasts. And Yahgurkin’s grotesque garden and Mulrox’s rambling hodgepodge of a home were the weirdest of the lot.
Plot & Premise
With grand ambitions to become an epic poet, Mulrox is painfully aware that his amateur scribblings can’t compete. Bad ideas are the last thing he needs with a high-stakes contest to prepare for, so when a plague of them arrive at his doorstep, Mulrox is determined to be swiftly rid of the magical Malcognitos.
