Finally finishing the long and difficult journey from its creator's brain to hardbound publication, R.D. Hammond's first published novel does not disappoint. The narrative is smartly constructed, complex but still following a natural flow, despite a few pop culture references seeming out of place. The dialog is witty and the characters, for all their quirks and absurdities, feel real and solid. Though clearly influenced by the likes of Adams, Pratchett, and Foglio, Hammond creates his own style rather than simply attempting to ape an established writer, and the result is a genuinely funny, witty, fantastic ride. I devoured this book in just over a weekend, and am chomping on the bit for more.
