Goodfae by kspam

Wands for show, knives for a pro. 

What is Goodfae? Goodfae is a story about the mafia. Simple, right? Well, actually not so much. Not once you throw fairies, ghosts, gods and monsters into the mix with mobsters and magic. The world of Goodfae is far from copacetic, much like the life of its protagonist, Alfonso Anastasio; a mafioso and newly made man trying to make ends meet to support his bedridden sister. Just like everyone else in the great city of New York, New York, Al wakes up everyday just so he can go to work nine to five and bring home the bread. Unlike other people, Al’s work involves extortion and violent gang warfare alongside the likes of warlock Marquis Allesandri and his crew of vampires, demigods, and changelings. Hey, some people file tax returns, some people file bullets. With the Allesandri family and their capo backing Alfonso and his sister, is he going to walk the road of gold and roses, or is his life and the lives of everyone around him about to become a lot more complicated?

He’s Gonna Give You an Offer You Can’t Refuse

By Inky Llama, author of Twisted Cogs

Aug 4, 2014: Goodfae can be summed up in two simple words: “Magical Gangsters”. Every once in awhile I stumble across a hybrid that I never knew I needed, and nowhere is this phenomenon more striking than this serial. At first glance one wouldn’t think the gritty Tommy-gun style mobster story set in prohibition America would mesh well with your typical fantasy work of vampires, fairies, mediums and ghosts. Once the story picks up however, the result of the mashup is a charming new spin on both genre, while not giving up the [more . . .]

This (Magical) Thing of Ours

By Psycho Gecko, author of World Domination in Retrospect

Sep 22, 2014: Prohibition. Vampires. The Mafia. Demigods.

These and more collide in Goodfae: an alternate history full of every sort of fantasy creature in Prohibition-era America. The story follows Alfonso, the newest soldato of one of the Five Families, as he takes up new duties that drag him even further into the bloody world of a mafia that integrates everything from magical drugs to vampires.

It’s an informal first-person narrative from Alfonso’s perspective, with [more . . .]
