I've derived great pleasure from the work of David Lee Stone. His cunningly constructed and deceptively sophisticated comic fantasies are a delight (Click to read my reviews of The Ratastrophe Catastrophe, and The Dwellings Debacle).
I missed the fifth title the Vanquished Vendetta when it was first released last July, but have recently requested to see a copy so I can cram it in preparation for the sixth title in The Illmoor Chronicles, The Coldstone Conflict which is due this month...
... I also wanted a copy 'cos they've used my quote on the front cover :-)
