Character Interviews

Despite being rather busy, our loyal and dedicated staff have managed to put together a list of character interviews — a compendium of discussions with characters from the Lillybeth and Hinsberth tales. Fortunately they were able to corner a number of the cast members and ask them (naturally with the help of translators, for most of us speak nary a word of Duck or Pig) a few questions about their lives, interests and reminiscences about the events chronicled in R. S. Markel's Lillybeth and Hinsberth novels. The interviews are listed below. We hope you enjoy this addition!


Abselard Placard

R. S. Markel has invited Mr. Abselard, a dear porcine friend, confidant, and resident of The Farm, to share a few thoughts on a wide smattering of topics gleaned from the pig's venerable tradition of their morning conversations. We do hope you enjoy this new addition.
