He was raised by ex-hippies in an apple orchard, and had to chase around a hedge maze for pocket money. When he grew older, he was deemed to have passed the "maze" level, and so graduated to selling boomerangs at Covent Garden Market.

Make It Count

"Vote out!" said Thistle, waving his placard and jutting out his lip.
Around him, the hurly-burly flow of entities eddied and swirled. There were so many types. Gods and sprites, mist-gobblers and sun-squibs, poor souls from the Beginning and ghosts from the very end.
