About Knotty Puppet

I'm the rather slight fellow you see dangling in the cave, center stage on the cover of THE GODDESS & THE DEVIL, a most unique and provocative multi~genre creation. It's a ton of real, thoroughly researched history called upon by our fictitious players arguing about good & evil (&c., &c., ...) who happened to find themselves in one Hell of a bind one night in Salem, 1692.

  1. He has quite a history behind him —-

    • The name “Caligula” meant “Little Boot(s)” in old Latin. The Roman soldiers gave him the nickname when he was a little kid traveling with his Father’s (Germanicus … highly respected Roman General) army. Apparently, the kid liked to play “Make-Believe” … dressing up and carrying on like a soldier, his signature accessories being a pair of goofy little soldier boots.

      “Flight Suit” anyone???
