Pint-pounding tales of high fantasy starring your favourite drunken savage barbarian!
Thrud the Barbarian leads a simple life, one of popping down to his local pub, quaffing a few tankards of ale and starting a fight in which everyone else is beaten senseless. After which comes the wenches! Hurrah!
Trouble is, there always seems to be someone with a quest to interrupt his peace, quiet and packet of crisps...
In his first-ever collection, Thrud faces down a necromancer (FWAP! SPLATT! THWOK!), protects his beer against fierce Frost Giants (THWOP! KER-THUNK!), faces his arch-nemesis (MASH! THWACK! THUNKTHUNKTHUNK!), assumes the role of the king he accidentally killed (POK!) and gets his pint spilled on a mission into the depths of the jungle (SPLUTCH!)!
If you haven't seen it yet, please go out and buy a copy - you are missing a brilliant piece of work. A great rib-tickler, full of nice touches, with heroic fantasy pastiche in-jokes and puns galore.— Wizard's Keep
A tongue-in-cheek farce that never once takes itself seriously!— Ain't It Cool
