Vulpine villains — Calmgrove

Dark deeds and the Devil — Calmgrove

Philip Pullman: Count Karlstein Doubleday 2002 (1982) Exactly four decades ago this year [2013] as a student teacher I took part in a college production of Weber’s Der Freischütz, when I sang in the chorus and took a minor role as Prince Ottokar.
