“The Fungal Kingdom is one of the largest eukaryotic kingdoms in the phylogenetic tree of life, encompassing an estimated 1.5-7 million species across the boundaries of its enigmatic and mostly uncharted realm. It is from this vast and mighty Kingdom, at the dawn of a new Aeon for humankind, that a tiny Mushroom Knight has emerged into the land of 1990’s Philadelphia. And he has a very, very large story to tell. Far too large for just one book,” said Oliver Bly, creator of The Mushroom Knight. “My heart is radiating with golden beams of brilliant sunlight as we announce The Mushroom Knight, Volume 2, of the continuing adventures of Gowlitrot & Lem. Volume 1 exploded in a puff of spores that found fertile ground in the imagination of its readers. The mycelium is now growing and people are being turned on to something new—and the resounding reply has been “more!” “
