The Mirth and Magic Humorous Fantasy Bundle - Curated by Kevin J. Anderson

Time to kick back and relax in the sun with an e-reader full of hilarious fantasy books in the new Humorous Fantasy StoryBundle curated by bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson. We have fifteen books covering the funny side of the fantasy genre. Traditional fantasy, magic, urban fantasy, superhero fantasy, even a few goofy horror titles. You'll laugh so hard, orcs will come out your nose!

This is the perfect all-you-can-eat buffet of fun. Anderson contributes two titles, a brand new novel in his "Dragon Business" medieval caper series, Skeleton in the Closet—It's Die Hard in a castle as a group of medieval con men (and one former princess) try to drive away an invading orc army by haunting the castle. He has also collected all of his comedic short fiction into one new volume, The Funny Business. Both of these titles are currently exclusive to StoryBundle, not yet available to the general public.

Other traditional fantasy titles that will make you smile include A Good Running Away, by Kevin Pettway—The Thirteen Kingdoms of the Misplaced Mercenaries universe create what a standard fantasy world might look like if you pantsed it, set it on fire, and kicked it into a pigpen full of switchblade-armed rattlesnakes. And Just Another Day in Suburbia, by Liz Pierce—The neighborhood hasn't been the same since the trolls came to town... Myths and Magic by Kevin Partner, the first book in a comic fantasy series with witches, an everyman hero with exploding hands, and a pioneer of chicken-powered aviation all set against a sadistic faerie king with a grudge and a horde of goblins. And who can resist A Cat's Guide to Bonding with Dragons, by Chris Behrsin?A Bengal cat, after getting yanked into another dimension by an evil warlock, becomes a dragon rider. Together, as cat and dragon, this unlikely duo might just save the world.

But wait, we can get even stranger, as in Behold the Ape, by James Morrow—In 1930's Hollywood, a popular horror-film actress and a gorilla whose skull houses the cryo-preserved brain of Charles Darwin team up to make a series of evolution-themed monster movies.

Or do you need a fairy godmother? "Every child deserves one miracle," is the motto of the Fairy Godmothers Union in The Magic Touch by Jody Lynn Nye. Apprentice fairy godfather Raymond Crandall is skeptical whether he wants to be a part of something that sounds so hokey, but he finds that granting wishes to children touches something in himself that he never knew was there.

Or a superhero? Being a superhero could kill her in Linda Maye Adams' Superhero Portal. In the wonderful young adult adventure Nowhere Man, by David Gerrold: What would you do if you had the power to stop time? In Nyte Patrol, by Alex P. Berg, when college softball player Lexie Rodriguez meets washed-up sorcerer Larry Stuttgart, sword master Dawn Blayde, werebear munitions expert Tank Johnson, and immortal zombie head-in-a-jar Bill, her life is about to get a lot more dangerous—and way weirder.

In Tales from the Wood, by R.A. Johnson—inspired by the Jethro Tull album Songs from the Wood—Cindy may inherit a fortune from her estranged grandfather, but it comes with a catch: she must listen to his favorite record, which propels her into a world of myth, magic, and music. Will she get lost in that world, losing her Way until going back and going home are not the same?

For darker humor, Fat Vampire by Johnny B. Truant is the basis for the hilarious SyFy Channel show Reginald the Vampire. All vampires aren't sexy and sparkly, and they have problems like the most average of us. And Lover's Moon, by Mark Leslie and Julie Strauss—He's an alpha wolf and a beta boyfriend. She's dated every monster in New York City. It's time for their Meat-Cute. Speaking of teeth… Eat, Drink, and Be Wary, edited by Lisa Mangum, is an anthology of nineteen stories that combine food, drink, and a surprising twist to serve up a delicious tale you can sink your teeth into.

It's better than three magic wishes—it's fifteen ebooks. And this bundle will only be available for three weeks. – Kevin J. Anderson
