Have you ever had an ebay auction go horribly wrong? Once in a spree of bidding and in the hopes of getting some cool Sobe swag, I accidently bid on and won one of those large beverage coolers that you see in convenience stores. Not only was there no where to put it in my dorm room, but shipping it to Alaska would have been more than it was worth. Luckily, one quick email later everything was worked out--I told the seller I didn’t really want it and he had already promised it to a friend.
Colin Farnsworth also finds himself at the bad end of an ebay auction. What seems like a coup, winning rare playing cards for the game Fantasy Underworld, turns into a surreal adventure when four leprechaun brothers show up on Colin’s door with a troll in hot pursuit, claiming the auction was actually a contract for room and board in Colin’s house. Then shenanigans ensue! There is accidental streaking, large carnivorous puppy snatching birds, talking dogs, unpermitted housing upgrades, and more ale than you can shake a tankard at.
Appetizers of the Gods would be perfect to kill time on a plane trip (say you are headed to Gen Con, or Dragon Con, or Comic Con, or whatever con) and needed something fun to read. The book is fairly clean if you want to share with your kids, and would be perfect for a road trip. Definitely, check it out if you want something fun to read this Summer.
