Short sword at his side and hunger in his belly, the outlandish traveler and master thief manages to find his way into the most terrifying and involved encounters with mages, monsters and demiurges (extra-dimensional beings which even the smartest thieves shouldn’t smart off at). Whether it be devouring pig-like monstrous devils and lying about the deed, feeding aphrodisiacs to wizards and tossing them to cannibalistic sub-humans in heat, or setting rampaging wood-ogres ablaze while escaping into the cavernous underneaths of Zev Grotto and Lunkin Karst, Pulsifer “The Velvet Knife” still manages to endear himself to the reader, all the while shooting himself repeatedly in the foot. And in doing so, what we love about Pulsifer is that the author himself isn't so righteously beholden to his creation that he can't allow him to stumble from time to time... or even tumble, if necessary.
Such unconventional characterization of a lead for his stories brings Mott to the forefront of a unique brand of fantasy and science fiction that appeals to the inkling Tolkien or Lewis or Salvatore in any of us. One day, Mike will no doubt be appreciated among the halls of classic adventure writers the likes of Burroughs, Lovecraft, and Verne... and the rest of us "wannabee" fiction writers will continue looking to the Pulsifer Saga for inspiration just as well.
