Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Beloved Classic Returns to Print Here, for a new generation of readers, is the exciing (and witty) tale of Piswyck, a young nobleman not quite ready for the world of magic and derring-do: his Particolored Unicorn (it has bad habits: it farts, and worse, it speaks in iambic pentameter), and their quest to rescue the beautiful Miranda, who has been carried off to Far Bermuda by her wicked Uncle Smagdarone (the Great?) and is held captive there in the magically-moved castle of Mad King Ludwig (Neuschwanstein), which said wicked wizard has surrounded with an impenetrable wall of man-eating gelatin. There are trolls, hang glider battles, great green sharks, gymnastics in swordplay, Black Elves, a giant chartreuse septapus named Ralph, and a war in which the most important weapon is perhaps the umbrella. Humor, lots of action, and a truly amazing cast of characters. “The Particolored Unicorn most certainly does run through a full spectrum of adventure.” --Esther Friesner, author of Harlot’s Ruse. “Jon DeCles...wrote this delightful humorous romp of a post-apocalyptic fantasy that I shelve right next to The Last Unicorn. His style is light and irreverent while allowing his characters to be serious or angry. I wish he'd write a sequel.” --The Library of Gothos “I ran across this book on my mother's shelves, and devoured it in a single sitting. It both is, and is not, a quintessential 'find the princess, reclaim your lost kingdom' sort of story. Some of its undeniable humor comes from how little it takes itself seriously (which doesn't mean it's internally inconsistent or stupidly self-referential - think Scream or Spaceballs, not Scary Movie). Off-the-wall realities of its fictional world are presented completely deadpan (unicorns produced by magical genetic engineering; an Evil Wizard -- the protagonist's fiancee's uncle -- who transported Neuschwanstein to Bermuda and lives in it, surrounded by a protective moat of carnivorous pink jelly) in a way I find most appealing; almost a British sort of sense of humor is at work here. If you like Pratchett, Asprin, or Holt, give this book a try.” --eloisebd, on Amazon

Book excerpt: Riding the Eye of the Hurricane, Piswyck, Lifesaver, and Miranda return to Carsonne, only to find the country torn by civil war. The roads across the mountains remain closed, food is growing short, and the Countess has put an exorbitant price on Piswycks head. Can the young Marquis unify his people,fight his way past abberant mythozooic monstrosities, and win against the dual armies of the corrupt tax collector Lomfroth and Kracmalnic the Mad? Read on, in this highly-humorous, action-packed and long-awaited sequel to The Particolored Unicorn. ***** Storm Wars thunders along in grand, exotic, picaresque style. The reader is swept up in the wake of the ludicrously entertaining adventures of the sexy young Marquis Piswick and his sardonic particolored unicorn, Lifesaver. Like most classical heroes Piswick has great flair, ingenuity and level-headedness, all of which he needs in a chaotic world fraught with deadly whimsicality. Its all about fighting, morality, mad invention, satire, blue wine and silliness. And monsters of course human and otherwise. Ive waited years for this book to come out. With a lot of modern fantasy being so drably serious, its bliss to have a cocktail like this: piquant with magic, frothing with romance, spiked with a salty wit. Paul Magrs, author of Never the Bride and Doctor Who Sick Building
