After Beowulf, and before Xena, there was Tristoon… (a spoof)
â€œ….Then she had made her way back to the Redwood, ushering out the dwarf-people who had taken time out from their incessant cookie-baking to try on her clothes.â€
From Note to the Reader
Hello, Reader, glad to see you reading. Especially something of mine. I hope youâ€™ll do that again withâ€”oh, ALL my work. For now, a few things about Tristoon: It was written in 1984 after I took a British Literature course. I loved the Beowulf story, but found that I kept laughing, because I would see all these other comic scenarios, which usually included another characterâ€”a female. Eventually, I started writing those scenarios down, and thus, Tristoon was born. Iâ€™ve always loved strong, capable women, and Iâ€™ve always loved humor. Tristoon has all that.
Please note that in the original format, there were little sarcastic footnotes, but in this eBook edition, I had to put them inline with text, so I just made them smaller and in a different font, in brackets, to differentiate them. The perils of eBook formatting. Just think of it as intentional author intrusion.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did writing it.
Now, begone. Start reading.
