The monstrous Tsul Kalu beasts of PROGENY are drawn from actual Cherokee mythological lore, underscoring the fact that there are legends of hairy humanoid giants in countless cultures throughout the world. Tsul Kalu is revered by the Cherokee as The Ultimate Hunter.
From the North comes the term: sasquatch. It’s derived once again from the Chehalis tribal name for a creature called sasq’ets, though legend pre-dates the actual name. There are also numerous other North American Bigfoot legends, all from sources once isolated from one another before their myths and history began to be charted.
Such coincidences would seem even less likely than the existence of the beast itself—if not for the many supernatural powers attributed to it. In any case, if the existence of the creature is ever confirmed, we may be opening an entirely different can of maggots—who is truly superior?
Some dark serendipity plopped a young Patrick Greene in front of a series of ever stranger films-and experiences-in his formative years, leading to a unique viewpoint. His odd interests have led to pursuits in film acting, paranormal investigation, martial arts, quantum physics, bizarre folklore and eastern philosophy. These elements flavor his screenplays and fiction works, often leading to strange and unexpected detours designed to keep viewers and readers on their toes.
Literary influences range from Poe to Clive Barker to John Keel to a certain best selling Bangorian. Suspense, irony, and outrageously surreal circumstances test the characters who populate his work, taking them and the reader on a grandly bizarre journey into the furthest realms of darkness. The uneasy notion that reality itself is not only relative but indeed elastic- is the hallmark of Greene’s writing.
