"Irreverent, hallucinatory, and noiresque -- and eye-poppingly hilarious in the stylistic presentation of its ultimately grim viewpoint. I've never laughed so uproariously at a tale so dark and pessimistic. This is genre-bending brilliance. Today, there's a new generation of horror writers bursting onto the scene, and Jones is one of the leaders of the pack."
--EDWARD LEE, author of City Infernal, Header, and The Bighead
"The Charm Hunter is a highly original adventure that mixes classic characters together in a totally new and outrageous way in brutal and bizarre fashion that begs to be read in one sitting. Highly Recommended!" --DAVID BERNSTEIN, author of Goblins and Skinner
"K. Trap Jones brings it full force with his no holds barred latest release, The Charm Hunter. The beloved fairytale and folklore creatures of our collective youth are turned inside out and left bare by the author as he takes readers on a raucous and unapologetic ride into the seedy underbelly of the imaginary world where Gus, a bounty hunter with a nasty disposition and a taste for hard liquor, finds himself duped by Lady Luck into tracking down some of fantasy's most famous trinkets." --SA CHECK, author of Welcome to Greengrass and Maxx Fragg, V.P.I.
"K. Trap Jones once again proves that he's a master of a novel told almost as fluid short stories. The strong voice of the grizzled, cynical bounty hunter colliding with the classic staples of good fortune folklore like leprechauns, cupids, and the seductress Lady Luck herself, leads to laugh out loud hilarity, absurdity, and creativity all the while staying paced perfectly. This one is a lot of fun." --KERRY LIPP, author of Squidfucked
