    Fairies have always existed in secret, without a kingdom of their own, living side-by-side with humankind. But when one of his own children is murdered, King Oberon asks his surviving daughters - newly minted NYPD detective Charli and wingless black sheep Lucy - to find her killer amidst the citizenry of New York. As Charli and Lucy delve deeper into the mystery, they begin to discover the extraordinary measures their father has taken - some clever, some desperate - to keep an entire people hidden in an increasingly treacherous world.

  • The Living Finger

    When well-meaning Jason discovers a disembodied finger that appears to "alive," it quickly becomes the sole focus of his life. He names the digit "Wendy," learns to communicate with it via "tap code," and discovers that the one thing Wendy wants more than anything else is a living, breathing human body to attach to. But, as soon as Jason helps Wendy secure an unwitting "host," problems arise. Soon, Jason has collected a bathtub full of corpses, a rightly suspicious sister, and a best friend hellbent on selling Wendy to the highest bidder. Even worse, Jason is beginning to realize that he may have acted a bit rashly, especially with Wendy proudly displaying an unhealthy fascination with knives. Is there any way for Jason to set things right without becoming another casualty? Read More

Garth Matthams

Writer: The Living Finger

Garth Matthams is a lot like you. He’s a person, like you. He breathes and eats and sleeps, like you. He enjoys comics, like you. And like you, he grew up with dreams. The problem with dreams, however, is that life tends to treat them like a bully treats sand castles: it knocks them down.

So yes, he had dreams. And like many people, life got in the way.

Then one day he woke up and realized it was time to dust off those dreams and do something about them. So he wrote, THE LIVING FINGER – his first (and hopefully not last) foray into comics.

Garth lives in Nanaimo, B.C., with his beautiful, supportive, hypochondriac wife, and their two skittish rabbits. Read more
