Diavosh BassitiThis site is about the Craft of Shadows fantasy world created by Diavosh Bassiti.

Diavosh has lived in lots of different places (currently Andalucía) and has one of those accents you think you almost recognise but just can’t quite place. His favourite animal is the tapir, the reason being abundantly obvious to fellow tapir fans, and is a keen collector of those odd little books you find in adventure movies that ultimately lead to a white-knuckle ride through the mysteries of a long-lost legend.

Unlike the prevailing stereotype, he has no cats.
