This fantasy adventure is Shakespeare’s Worst Nightmare.

It takes two of the Bard’s most famous plays and recasts them with fantasy characters.

You don’t have to know anything about Shakespeare to enjoy this fantasy comedy. Hamlet is now a dwarf, Othello is a dark elf and Falstaff is a human. If that isn’t bad enough, these two tragedies are now comedies with Falstaff, Shakespeare’s most popular rogue, thrown in as a bonus. Both Hamlet and Othello are plagued by the scheming Falstaff, a human.

Hamlet is the Prince of Denmarko and is striving to start a private business — bee-keeping — to demonstrate his competence and independence from the court. He is shocked to learn, from a ghost, that his uncle Clodio murdered his father. Indecisive, he tries to balance his love of bees with his mother’s demands to help Clodio and the ghost’s insistence that he avenge his father’s murder.

Othello, using a tarted-up resume, is named to the post of Minister of Homeland Security in the city of Dun Hythe. Once he assumes the post he realizes his responsibilities are much greater than he imagined they would be. He soon discovers his appointment was engineered by his wife’s grandmother who heads the local crime syndicate and demands that Othello illegally award her the contracts to rebuild the Dun Hythe’s walls.

Falstaff is a life-long schemer and scam artist. He calls himself Sir John Falstaff since he won the title ‘Sir’ in a card game with the knight. A deserter from the army, he travels around the country with his batman, Poulet, searching for opportunities. During the story Falstaff sees Hamlet and Othello as easy marks and gulls both of them.

Falstaff, claiming he and Othello once fought in the same battle, accepts money from Othello to recruit a force to put down the piracy that plagues Dun Hythe’s port. Instead, he steals two ships and goes into the piracy business on his own.
Later on, Falstaff decides to give up piracy as it is getting too dangerous. He saves Hamlet’s life after Clodio tries to assassinate the prince. Falstaff helps Hamlet avenge his father’s murder, then accumulates vast power by persuading Hamlet, now king, to let him take over the burden of ruling. Falstaff convinces Hamlet that Dun Hythe and Othello will invade Denmarko shortly and their only hope is to attack first. Falstaff recruits an army and leads it , along with Hamlet, to attack Dun Hythe where Falstaff plans to make himself king over the richest city in Gundarland.

Othello, incapable of leading the defense of Dun Hythe, turns over the responsibility to his subordinates and they prepare the city for an attack. Falstaff’s arrives and, expecting to attack an undefended city, sees the now formidable defenses. His army falls apart without striking a blow and Falstaff scampers off to seek new prospects. Hamlet and Othello agree to end the attack and declare peace.

In the end, Hamlet becomes comfortable with ruling Denmarko, Othello is considered a hero and a success for the first time in his life and Falstaff continues a life of running scams.

Humor – Trailer Trash, With a Girl’s Name

By Stacey Roberts
Publisher: Sons of Joy
ISBN: 978-0615933887
ASIN: B00IX0MIAO
Genre: Humor
Formats Available For Review: Print (limtied quantities, only available for qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.), PDF, Mobi, Kindle

When the author was born, his mother did the unthinkable. She gave him a girl’s name—Stacey. But Stacey’s name was just the first hurdle he’d face in his uphill climb from birth to manhood. He also had to deal with an entitled older brother, the hodgepodge of different men his mother was involved with, and the nomadic lifestyle he was forced to endure for five years. And to top it all off, his mother couldn’t cook a decent meal to save her life. Trailer Trash, With a Girl’s Name is Stacey Roberts’ lighthearted, often hilarious account of growing up in an unstable household during the 1980s. Full of humor, history, and hope, it follows Stacey from the hospital room where he was born to the Winnebago that carried him across the country, filling in the gaps with a wit and humor that anyone with a dysfunctional family can appreciate. So go ahead and start reading. Once you hop aboard the Winnebago with Stacey and his quirky family, you’ll find that you’re in for the ride or your life, where what you learn along the way is not only entertaining, but also enormously enriching.

Genre: Humor

Discovering secrets is titillating.

Everyone wants to peek under the covers, be a fly on the bedroom wall, or read someone’s diary. The juicier the secret, the more people want to know it, and sex is the most taboo of all subjects.

It’s human nature to be curious about what everyone else is doing. What do people like about sex? What are their fantasies? How far are they willing to go to please the one they love? These questions and more are explored, where everyday people offer up their most intimate secrets about sex.

One part social experiment – one part personal journey mixed with a little shock value, a whole lot of confession, laugh-out-loud comedy, deceptively thought-provoking questions and answers, all in the name of self-awareness.

Humorous Fantasy – Natalya’s Tale

Natalya's TaleNatalya’s Tale
By Mishka Zakharin
Publisher: Zakharin Publishing
Published: August 2015
ISBN: 978-1516915439
ASIN: B014AO0YWK
Genre: Fantasy
Formats Available For Review: pdf

Who amongst us (if of an age) hasn’t faced that daunting dilemma: the inevitability of turning 30?! And so then, in dire frustration over all that life is not, lapsed into another dimension of myth and magic and talking butterflies! (Or perhaps that last bit isn’t quite as inevitable for everyone…)

At heart, ‘Natalya’s Tale’ is a picaresque reflective of Arthurian legends: a knight on a quest, wandering strange lands, battling wild beasts and mythological monsters or witches and wizards, and engaging in a series of heroic endeavors… except in this case, rather than a knight, it’s Natalya Yvain—a cannibalistic prostitute who, tired of turning tricks and eating babies, goes on a journey through the Otherworld (a shadow world of our own) in search of greater meaning in life.

Natalya—despite her penchant for human flesh, both professionally and nutritionally—is a sort of “Everywoman;” she’s just an ordinary person who becomes caught up in extraordinary circumstances, finding herself faced with having to try to save the world. Accompanied by her guide, a butterfly named Katara, Natalya meanders about on her quest, meeting a variety of bizarre friends and foes, many of who offer up their own personal tales along the way…
