The Conjuring of Zoth-Avarex: The Self-Proclaimed Greatest Dragon in the Multiverse

Kept hidden by the United States government for decades, the Site is a place where magic is real. But that doesn’t mean that everything happening there is sparkly. Soul-sucking policies and layers of stifling bureaucracy threaten to take all the fun out of magic.

Harris, a newbie Conjurer, starts his first day of work at the Site bursting with excitement: he’s been brought on for an extremely big project happening the very next day. In a triumph over its habitual inefficiency, the Site manages to carry out its plan and conjure an actual dragon to be used by the military.

The dragon (Zoth-Avarex, the self-proclaimed greatest dragon in the multiverse) immediately eats the person next to him, snatches a “princess” from the ranks of the Conjuring Department, and flies away to the Space Needle. There he manipulates the media, outwits the Site’s bumbling management, demands sixty-three billion dollars’ worth of treasure (because Smaug was said to have had sixty-two billion in his hoard), threatens to destroy the city–and installs a couple of food trucks.

While this book skewers the same fantasy genre it gleefully inhabits, it also pokes fun at corporate culture, today’s obsession with wealth and celebrity, and our denial that life is anything more than meets the eye. Hapless Harris, believing in magic all along, learns to apply what he’s picked up between the pages of fantasy literature.

The Case of the Ugly Bug Virus

The Case of the Ugly Bug Virus

Book One of the Dirk Beetle Detective Agency series

Talking Insects. Webmaster spiders. Dragonfly Airways. The Dirk Beetle Detective Agency has to uncover the secret of the Ugly Bug Virus. Like, where it came from! And, how to stop it!

It’s Snail Mail, but not as we know it!

This hilarious children’s fantasy book draws on the tradition of talking animals, comedy fantasy/sci-fi and a child’s simple love for spiders and wierd insects. The characters have real personalities, to the extent that as you read, you can end up forgetting they are even insects, they seem so human-like!

There’s a tug of war going on between the snails and the spiders, and it’s all about communication systems…

A castle…secret passages…and maybe even a ghost!

You will never look at a spider’s web in the same way again!

Meet Julian Barritt

I have always loved writing, even as a child, and I was given a wonderful variety of children’s books to read by my family during my formative years.
So it was that in the ’80s, I wrote two children’s adventure books of my own: “The Secret of the Mermaid’s Treasure” and “Sea, Snow and Spies”. These were set in Cornwall – my favourite part of the world! Later in the ’90s I wrote “The Case of the Ugly Bug Virus” (about spiders’ webs!) and its sequel, “The Invasion of the Ants.” Currently I’m in the middle of writing a science fiction book, this time for grown-ups, called “Perchance to Dream”.
