An Adult 'airy Tale
by Paul J. Elliott

Gnomes are a form of people resembling small, squat humans with a preference for long hats and sturdy clothing, but that’s where the similarity with humankind starts and ends...

Gnomes... Friendly, harmless little beings who hide away in remote places and entertain themselves by fishing for no fish while perched on toadstool? Not this lot! The everyday lives of James and Alison Allison become a theatre of chaos and carnage when a group of small, but highly evolved creatures, invade their home.

Calling themselves gnomes, they are a mixed bunch, including the compassionate, philosophical Cedric, the ever-inventive Archibald, the grumpy Joshua, the flirty Florence and a moody manic called Ernest and his eternally bored, cranially challenged wife Gertie. But what is the reason for their intrusion? Are they merely intent on emptying every bottle of wine in Cleakheaton? Or is there a more sinister motive?

For almost a year, James and Alison endure a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, including an attempted kidnapping, regular journeys to the beer, wines and spirits aisle of the supermarket and occasional near-death experiences. Yet despite the traumas, James grows fond of the strange little fellows, while Alison grows increasingly weary of the unwanted guests. As her resentment simmers, the story takes an unexpected turn...

Gnomes: An Adult ’airy Tale is a hilarious and imaginative story of the mishaps that occur when modern and magical worlds collide that will captivate all fans of fantasy.
