Tales From Gundarland
by Hank Quense
This collection of six humorous short stories and two novellas has been racking up awards since it was published. Readers Favorite gave it a medal. EPIC tagged it as a finalist for an Eppie as the best anthology of the year (winners announced in mid-March) and one of the novellas, Chasing Dreams, has been nominated for a Nebula award by the Science FIction Writers of America.
Here are what readers and reviewers said about it:
Hank Quense has a Pratchett-like gift for extracting humour from science fiction and fantasy settings and characters and managing to slide social commentaries among the jokes.
Tales from The Gunderland is one of those books that could easily become a cult phenomenon. I really enjoyed the humor, which was sort of a cross between Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Monty Python.
As I read each character’s story I couldn’t help but laugh.
All of them, however, are side-splittingly funny, and, if you enjoy the writings of Terry Pratchett, you should enjoy these too. Quense’s irreverent take on the world of fantasy is most amusing, I find, when he describes the relationships between fellow characters and between man and beast.
