Book Description

Nik's Knacks is a store that travels through time, space and reality. Bern Wood suffers from panophobia, fear of everything, which would be a good reason not to accept a job at the store, but he also doesn't like being poor. Things are not all bad. He's learning to conquer his fears... well, until he discovers the thing living in the basement storeroom.

"There are a lot of fun scenes in this wacky manuscript" -- Publishers Weekly

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming story June 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be charming. Lots of grammantical errors, but very funny and entertaining. It made me laugh out loud several times. I hope the author continues on with at least one more book to explain Nik. I like the idea of a store that brings you what you need, not want..

Believe it or not, that line is a direct quote from this story, Nik's Knacks. I discovered this delightful story about a week ago and instantly bought it once I read the description. It sounded like something different, I thought. Boy, was I ever right!

This story has everything any fan of fantasy would love, and many things that practically every fantasy lover (including this one) would never dream existed. The story follows a bizarre group of people that are tied to this quirky convenience store that has this odd habit of darting around to various places wherever its needed. Need five pounds of newt feet? How about a bolt of fluorescent green lace? This store is for you. Abigail runs the store with Max, who really defies description. Also along for the ride is Bern, a textbook schizophrenic who happens to be afraid of butterflies. And vegetables. :) Also present is a young man named Chris, who is constantly drawn to the store, and the ghost of an IRS agent who while he was alive, tried to figure out the taxes for the shop.

Whether the shop is jetting off to distant parts of the world to satisfy the needs of some peculiar customer, or appearing at a corner in some foreign world, the shop's tenants learn to coexist with each other and learn that while they may be the most bizarre group of friends that happens to exist, they really do depend on one another.

This story had me laughing out loud from the moment I picked it up and started to read. The writer does a great job of infusing the story with sarcastic charm, while simultaneously conveying a unique sense of perspective from the various characters. In order to enjoy this story, the future reader should understand that this is an atypical fantasy story.
