Robert Mitchell, Jr

Biography

I am a writer, martial arts expert, and mystic from Richmond, VA. A martial artist for over twenty-five years, I am the founder and First Elder of Cabal Fang, an initiatory martial art marrying practical self-defense techniques with the wonders of the Western Mystery Tradition. In 2011 I was awarded the rank of Master by the Combat Martial Arts Practitioners Association.

On the subject of martial arts I have penned "Cabal Fang: Complete Study Course from Querent to Elder" and the popular pamphlet "Self-Defense for Activists." My fiction works include the novels "Chatters on the Tide," "Ghilan" and "The 14th Mansion," as well as numerous poems, ‘zines, comic books, and short pieces. My short-story “Sign of the Times” appears in the Fall 2012 issue of the Hulltown 360 Literary Journal.

I graduated from the University of Virginia in 1983 with a B.A. in English. My wife and I are the proud parents of four children and four grandchildren.

Smashwords book reviews by Robert Mitchell, Jr

  • The Colleagues of Professor Van Helsing on Oct. 27, 2012

    I had been intending to read something by Machen and Blackwood, and had long thought it would be fun to read some of Crowley's fiction, so I was very excited to find this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Mr. Russell's introductions to each tale are worthy and sound, as is his prologue, and I may well read more of his compilations. My only criticism is that he did not include the original publication date for each story, but that omission doesn't diminish enjoyment. Of the tales included I must say that Crowley's was the most unsettling. Recommended!
