Telling Stories that Transcend Time and Space
Telling Stories that Transcend Time and Space

About Us

At Distant Goblin Productions, we endeavor to tell stories that transcend time and space. Stories about characters that may live on a distant planet, and in a distant time, but think and feel, hope and love, struggle and dream as we do. We strive to bring a sense of realism into the science fiction/fantasy genre, and tell stories deeply inspired by the human condition, even if they are not about human characters.
