Blurb: Fish Wielder is kind of like Lord of the Rings, set in Narnia, if it was written by the guys who made Monty Python and the Holy Grail while they were listening to the music of They Might Be Giants.

In ancient times, the Dark Lord Mauron cooked the most powerful magic chocolate dessert ever made, the Pudding of Power.

One thousand and two years later, the evil leader of the Bad Religion, the Heartless One, is trying to recover the lost pudding in order to enslave the peoples of Grome. Only the depressed barbarian warrior Thoral Might Fist and his best friend, Brad the talking Koi fish, have a chance to save the world of Grome from destruction, but that's going to take a ridiculous amount of magic and mayhem.

Thus begins the epically silly epic fantasy of epic proportions, Fish Wielder—book one of the Fish Wielder Trilogy.

Sneak Peek:

The barbarian glowered at the magician as the blade thrummed in his hand.

“Prepare to meet whatever maker made thee,” Thoral spat.

“No, you!” the sorcerer shot back.

Then the two ran at each other. Necrogrond swung his wickedly curved dagger, and Thoral blocked the blow with his magic sword so that blue sparks showered around him. The sorcerer pirouetted like a dancer dancing a dance of death and slashed at the barbarian’s heaving chest. Thoral jumped backwards, avoiding a nasty cut. Then he sprang forward and punched the sorcerer in the ear. Necrogrond was spun round by the force of Thoral’s mighty fist, and his ear tore right off and fell on the floor with a wet plop. He howled in pain and clutched at the side of his head.

“You’ll pay for that, barbarian!” the sorcerer screeched and made a big flash of magic light that had Thoral seeing spots.

When the Fist Wielder’s vision returned, Necrogrond appeared to be gone. Actually, he was in the air above Thoral, hovering in a way that made the magician look as if he were floating underwater. Even his hair rippled as if he were underwater. It was pretty creepy, but the effect was wasted on Thoral because he didn’t see it.

“Where art thou, FOUL WIZARD?!” Thoral roared, turning this way and that as Necrogrond descended. The sorcerer was a mere foot above him when a single drop of blood dripped from his severed ear and splashed onto the top of Brad’s head as he peered from inside Thoral’s belt pouch.

“He’s hovering above us!” the fish shouted.

Thoral looked up, but too late. The sorcerer plopped down on him, seizing the warrior’s neck between his powerful thighs. He squeeze until Thoral’s face turned red and veins bulged at his temples. The barbarian staggered and fell to his knees, gasping for breath and grasping for the sorcerer. And then it really seemed as if Thoral might lose. Really this time.

About the Author: Fish Wielder is J.R.R.R. (Jim) Hardison's first novel novel (He wrote a graphic novel, The Helm, for Dark Horse Comics). Jim has worked as a writer, screen writer, animator and film director. He started his professional career by producing a low-budget direct-to-video feature film, The Creature From Lake Michigan. Making a bad movie can be a crash course in the essential elements of good character and story, and The Creature From Lake Michigan was a tremendously bad movie. Shifting his focus entirely to animation, Jim joined Will Vinton Studios where he directed animated commercials for M&M’s and on the stop-motion TV series Gary and Mike. While working at Vinton, he also co-wrote the television special Popeye's Voyage: The Quest for Pappy with actor Paul Reiser.

Jim has appeared on NBC's The Apprentice as an expert advisor on brand characters, developed characters and wrote the pilot episode for the PBS children's television series SeeMore's Playhouse and authored the previously mentioned graphic novel, The Helm, named one of 2010's top ten Great Graphic Novels for Teens by YALSA, a branch of the American Library Association. These days, Jim is the creative director and co-owner of Character LLC, a company that does story-analysis for brands and entertainment properties. He lives in Portland, Oregon with his lovely wife, two amazing kids, one smart dog and one stupid dog.
