Little treasure of fantasy creatures of the labyrinth. Goblins come in all shapes and sizes. This gallery of slimy portraits includes such smelly denizens of the Labyrinth as Hallow goblins, the Klutton, Zitzie, Stench and Foregoblins. Most are small, grotesque creatures who love to torment unsuspecting humans. Others are simply dumb, lazy, loutish brats with unspeakable personal habits. But whatever the type, goblins are malevolent and cantankerous towards humans even when they are on their best behavior.
Up until now our scanty knowledge of goblins had been based on speculation, but we now know a great deal more, thanks to an important archaeological find by the eminent part-time goblinologist, Brian Froud, who stumbled across forty-three notebooks created by Dash, the Reynolds of goblin portraitists . These precious notebooks are necessarily sketchy, but years of painstaking reconstruction by Froud backed up by years of dry research by his colleague, the noted academic Terry Jones, have produced what amounts to an illustrated Who's Who of the goblin world.
