Crasters Creep

Since last week's kerfluffle over Vaughn Ohlman's marriage retreat I've started looking at some of the fiction written by him. He's written several books on betrothal with the fathers doing all the chosing of course, but the surprising ones are the fictional books.

According to several sites he's written 'Christian romance'. Here's a breakdown on the storyline of one of his novels 'Come The Day':

Hadassah was worried about this new husband her father had betrothed her to, the Prince Royal. What would he be like? She had heard all sorts of strange things about him, his father, his friends, and his plans.
Ishvi, on the other hand, was angry. His foolish uncle had gone and joined in the rebellion and now he, Ishvi, was paying the cost: having to marry some girl that Se Hadassah was worried about this new husband her father had betrothed her to, the Prince Royal. What would he be like? She had heard all sorts of strange things about him, his father, his friends, and his plans.
Ishvi, on the other hand, was angry. His foolish uncle had gone and joined in the rebellion and now he, Ishvi, was paying the cost: having to marry some girl that Seth, the prince, would pick for him, and then having to participate in some crazy plan that he had dreamed up.
But both of them were seriously upset that they weren’t going to be able to be human!
Enthralling I'm sure. The first one in this series 'Island Peoples' is out of print:

 They say that coming of age is a difficult time--even for princes. Perhaps especially for princes. Sixteen year old Seth was already worried about suddenly becoming the heir apparent in a country torn by war, learning the language of every race on the planet, getting betrothed to some girl he didn't even know, the daughter of his father's greatest enemy. But to be kidnapped too? And why was he so dizzy all the time?
It seems to me that at one time there was some science fiction self published books available online also written by Von but I cannot find where I saw that at or the titles. I would imagine it would be something like 'The Triple-Breasted Daughter-Whores of Planet Impreganoria' Was he attempting to be Isaac Assholoff or George R.R. Martini like?

Von also has a book site, the domain name set to expire in the next few months. The site is completely vacant. But you know what's not vacant? Some of Von's old blogs under other names that have such creepy and wrong theology they almost read like something out of  George R. R. Martin's 'Game of Thrones' series involving Craster and his harem of daughters he impregnated regularly.

Erase, Von, erase... there's so much out there that it is going to take you a good month or more to bury it all.
