Real heroes never die. But they do get grouchy in middle age.

The beloved King Ik is dead, and there was barely time to check his pulse before the royal throne was supporting the suspiciously shapely backside of an impostor pretending to be Ik’s beautiful long-lost daughter. With the land’s heroic hunks busy drooling all over themselves, there’s only one man left who can save the kingdom of Jenair. His name is Dungar Loloth, a rural blacksmith turned innkeeper, a surly hermit and an all-around nobody oozing toward middle age, compensating for a lack of height, looks, charm, and tact with guts and an attitude.

Normally politics are the least of his concerns, but after everyone in the neighboring kingdom of Farrawee comes down with a severe case of being dead, Dungar learns that the masquerading princess not only is behind the carnage but also has similar plans for his own hometown. Together with the only person senseless enough to tag along, an eccentric and arguably insane hobo named Jimminy, he journeys out into the world he’s so pointedly tried to avoid as the only hope of defeating the most powerful person in it. That is, if he can survive the pirates, cultists, radical Amazonians, and assorted other dangers lying in wait along the way.

Logan J. Hunder’s hilarious debut blows up the fantasy genre with its wry juxtaposition of the fantastic and the mundane, proving that the best and brightest heroes aren’t always the best for the job.

About the Author:

Logan J. Hunder is a Canadian comedy fantasy writer who felt empowered after graduating from college to explore his passion for writing to its fullest potential. So far, that’s resulted in Witches Be Crazy, his debut novel.

Review:

Hunder’s engaging debut cleverly skewers traditional fantasy tropes with two seemingly unbeatable (and unconventional) protagonists, and the nonstop action will keep readers flipping the pages late into the night. Suggest to fans of Tom Holt who appreciate his mix of humor and imagination.”
Library Journal, starred review and Debut of the Month for July 2015

Fast moving and original This is a wild fantasy adventure.”
Piers Anthony, New York Times-bestselling author of the Xanth series

Sometimes wry, sometimes laugh-out-loud hilarious, Logan J. Hunder’s Witches Be Crazy skewers fantasy tropes and hoists them high on their own petard (whatever a petard” is).”
Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times-bestselling author of the Dan Shamble, Zombie PI series

Hilarious! Not since Elvendude have I enjoyed anything so much.”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Fantasy Lover and the Dark-Hunter series

It’s clever, it’s entertaining, and it has its uproariously funny moments. . . I have no doubt that Witches Be Crazy will garner a lot of fans. . . this is the kind of book with 'dedicated cult following' written all over it, much like other parodic classics like Monty Python and the Holy Grail or The Princess Bride.”
The BiblioSanctum
