From the Author
The Upperworld is your standard medieval reality, containing wizards, kings, knights, dwarfs, elfs, halflings, etc. The Underworld has advanced technology and is full of orcs, ogres, trolls, vampires, werewolfs, gnomes, dark elfs, dark halflings, and so on.
The Underworlders know about the Upperworlders, but the opposite is not exactly true. Only the elite get to know the truth about those living in the Underworld. Everyone in the Upperworld just thinks that the Underworld and its inhabitants are merely things of legend.

The Fate Quest (Tales From the Land of Ononokin .5) is available only through Logson's site, please note that is point 5 as in 1/2 not #5.
I love the way we're guided through the characters' thought processes. The world has an insane logic of its own that SHOULD be tough to get your head around. For example, who ever heard of an apprentice's magic being activated by ostrich ejecta? I hadn't until I read this book, and it all makes perfect sense somehow. Another example is Whizzfiddle, the wizard. It's a challenge to make a 650 year old wizard easy to relate to, but Logsdon pulls it off by making him a rich, soft, talented old man who just wants peace and quiet until his world is turned upside down by his inability to cross his T's and dot his I's.
And if you think Whizfiddle is odd, wait until you see the world he lives in. Packed with bizarre, petty, hilarious characters who manage to be sympathetic, for the most part.
To me, the swiftness of the read and the humor makes A Quest of Undoing an EASY recommendation. The one dollar price tag is like gravy.

a story on its merit. It serves no purpose to make a comparison one way or the other as someone will undoubtedly disagree.
The first of the Ononokin tales follows the wizard named Whizzfiddle in his attempt to thwart his former apprentice who is hellbent
on discrediting the lackadaisical, but hugely popular Whizzfiddle.
The story whizzes along (sorry) at a great pace and the author slowly offers insights into the world of Ononokin without disturbing
the pace of the story. This offers some enticing insight for future stories and gives you a glimpse of a what promises to be a fascinating world
which attempts to blend reality and fantasy with current(ish) topics to comical effect.
It's an enjoyable and comical read and I look forward to meeting other comical residents of Ononokin. Many of the characters are endearing such as my favourites: Whizzfiddle and Gungren and full of personaility such as the fiery Muppy.
I should say that it is also the very first e-book I've managed read from start to finish!
My duty to offer a negative: This rests with Amazon's strange algorithm which claims 342 pages but the reality is its a shorter (but enjoyable) read.
I received a free copy of this book by signing up for John's interesting weekly newsletter, but it is easily good value for the asking price :)
Very, very enjoyable, if you like your fantasy a bit off the wall (vampires = mosquitos!). Looking forward to more.
