    Review quote
    It was hard to stop reading Goblin Secrets, and I didn't want the book to end! The author's imagination is both huge and original, taking us to a truly new place, rich with lively, vivid scenes, fascinating people, and marvelous inventions. He doesn't explain things, yet everything is clear. And he tells his fast-paced story in language that's a pleasure in itself -- subtle, tricky, funny, beautiful. More, please, Will Alexander! -- Ursula K. Le Guin, Author Of The Wizard Of Earthsea Goblin Secrets is a knockout. It's an original. -- Peter S. Beagle, Author Of The Last Unicorn William Alexander is a wonderful talent whose breadth of vision and sense of theatricality, sly wit, and wicked whimsy have charmed and enthralled me since I first set eyes on his work. -- Catherynne M. Valente There are books that make you feel good for having read them. Not virtuous or well-behaved, but good. More whole-hearted, more brave, more likely to look at a stranger and see the fine face beneath the mask of their unfamiliarity. Goblin Secrets, William Alexander's debut novel, is just such a book... It is also unusual, unsettling, and written with a very spirited grace. Fantasy Matters Alexander has an intriguing central theme, in which masks and theater create actual magic, set in the magical, steampunk-inflected land of Zombay. Publisher's Weekly Funny, smart, and gorgeously written. When I grow up, I want to be Will. -- Jane Yolen, Author Of The Pit Dragon Chronicles William Alexander organizes his atmospheric first novel into acts and scenes, rather than chapters, and he couches it in the beautifully elliptical language of the old fairy tales. Washington Post Rownie's search for his brother turns into an unlikely heroic quest ... Highly textured, tightly woven and reassuringly seamless. Rownie's triumph is both gripping and tantalizing.
