The Lunlins – A Tale of Friendship, Fear and Flatulence


If you like a hearty helping of humour with your fantasy adventure, then you're in for a real treat... Adults and youngsters alike will enjoy this intriguing and highly amusing tale.

Have you ever wondered how 'normal' people would fare when tasked with the sorts of quests and challenges that appear in fantasy novels? How would a mere mortal overcome the stresses and anxieties of everyday life and rise to the epic challenge laid out for them? Why don't fictional characters ever go to the toilet or break wind? Why don't they ever have panic attacks in moments of intense stress or gag at foul odours? If you yearn for answers to such deep and philosophical questions, then this book is for you.

When a note arrives in the village of Lunton, speaking of attacking wart-faced ogres known as the Ugbards, the peace-loving Lunlins are thrown into disarray. Gradwin and Rentuck (two useless hunters who only ever seem to catch things that are very slow or already dead) head to The Belch Inn and drown their sorrows with a pint of Garg, or six. On waking up bleary-eyed the next morning, they discover that their village was attacked while they had been sleeping off their over-indulgence in a muddy stream. With all the houses destroyed and the occupants missing, it falls to the inept pair to go in search of their friends and family, despite their hangovers and general incompetence.

The tale follows Gradwin and Rentuck through the highs and lows (mostly lows) of their adventure, as well as providing some insight into their friendships, fears and, occasionally, their flatulence. The odds are stacked against them from the beginning and the chances of it ending well are remote, but I think you'll agree that their story is one well worth reading.

The publishing process for my first novel, "The Lunlins - A Tale of Friendship, Fear and Flatulence" has begun!

With a love of fantasy-adventure stories and an overwhelming urge to turn all awkward situations into a comedy sketch, my first novel had to combine the two. I spent the best part of two years working on it, whenever I wasn't building software solutions in the city for my day-job.

Like most, one of the things I have always loved about a good book is being able to get completely lost in the world that is described to you across the pages. I had the same feeling as I wrote my novel and found myself wondering what would happen next. The difference this time was that it was up to me what happened next. I could decide which situation to put my beloved Lunlins into.

I may have pushed them a little too far but it makes for an entertaining tale! One of friendship, fear and flatulence!
