Review: Pedant "An...Oddball Fairy-Tale Type Story"

Book review: The Pedant and the Shuffly

It's quite a short little oddball fairy-tale type story--the closest thing I can think of is James Thurber's The 13 Clocks. The evil wizard Snodrog the Pedant has a habit of collaring people who pass by his house, whereupon he uses his horrible logic to convince them they don't exist. They either disappear or become Flimsies, stained handkerchiefs forced to do his evil bidding. Then one day his designated victim brings a Shuffly along, and the fun begins.
