Just out!!! My book on dark, eerie, erotic Faerie Lore, on Llewellyn Press.


“Think you know faeries? This well-researched, compelling book will have you looking twice at shadows and tying bits of red thread around your bedposts for protection.”—Jennifer McMahon, author of Promise Not to Tell

"I have never in my life come across any book that comes even close to containing the volume of information that the author has supplied in this wonderful book. It could well be entitled “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Faeries, But Were Afraid to Ask.” Packed with lots of unusual and interesting information on every page, it mentions some of the most obscure lore about faeries." Green Egg Magazine

"My own darker side loved the section on Hell Hounds. From Cerberus, Hecate and Anubis to Shakespeare’s Herne to Arthur Conan Doyle’s Hound of the Baskervilles, demon dogs add fury to the comings of goings of figures like Mab, the Faerie Queen, as well as to the preachings of America’s Southern pulpits.

"This book is a perfect next step for Harry Potter readers who are now teenagers and young adults. The green-eyed beauty staring out of the shadows on the cover will let them know that. The book will also be an invaluable resource for writers of those epic adventure tales which are ultimately headed to the big screen, laden with special effects." —Anna Jedrziewski, www.SpiritConnectionNewYork.org, New York, N.Y.

"I truly enjoyed every page of it. The subject is fascinating and your voice comes through most entertainingly." Abraham Tetenbaum, Founder and Executive Director, Enrichment Works Educational Enrichment Programs

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
