At age 29, Dennis Harkness thought he had everything he could want: a beautiful fiancee, three weeks vacation per year , a 401k and a starter home in the suburbs. Everything was coming up Dennis. Until he discovered Djosar, an ancient genie,residing in a gravy boat his fiancee, Jenny, had purchased at a yard sale. Within minutes of meeting the magical genie, Dennis's entire life is turned upside down.
Chaos and hilarity abound as Dennis attempts to use the wishes offered by Djosar to better himself, his life and the world around him; often with disastrous and unplanned results. It's like a Shakespearean comedy of errors but way less preachy.
A Million More Wishes is the first book in Christopher McDevitt's planned multi-volume series," The One Million Wishes Saga." A former stand up comedian and generally awful person, McDevitt offers up a mix of entertaining dialogue and maniacal antics in this post-modern take on "The Monkey's Paw.
"McDevitt paces his story with Elmore Leonard-esque dialogue in a rapidly expanding world. An east-coast Christopher Moore." - Halfninja.com
"'The One Million Wishes Saga' could have just as easily been called 'A Hitchhiker's Guide to World Religions I Googled.' I think people will be surprised at how little I had to make up. Surat 72. The turtle vs. frog argument. It's all out there. I just brought it together in a silly little story about a manboy and his genie...and a lot of dick jokes."
