Pine Cove, California is a small village that serves as the setting for Practical Demonkeeping, The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove, and The Stupidest Angel.

It is south of the Big Sur Wilderness area and has access to the Pacific Ocean.

History Edit

The village now known as Pine Cove was originally settled in the 1880's by settlers from Ohio. it became known as "Harpooner's Cove" on the 1890's after whalers moved in to take advantage of the small natural harbor that existed. After the whale trade became less profitable, the whalers abandoned the village and left it to cattle ranchers and those who would mine mercury.

After the highway through Big Sur was completed, the town became a tourist area and a refuge for retirees and young newlyweds that wanted to escape the cities.
