Bill and Butch are consulting wizards, happy to help adventurers from the comfort of home – as long as it doesn’t require much work!
Scoundrel wizards with hearts of gold, Bill and Butch are trying to enjoy the good life – while stopping the galaxy from going to hell in a handbasket.
This edition features three short stories featuring Bill and Butch: ‘The Cowardly Clerics of Rigel V,’ ‘Total Party Kill,’ and ‘The Planet with no Beer.’
Author Biography: Von Allan was born red-headed and freckled in Arnprior, Ontario, just in time for STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE. The single child of two loving but troubled parents, Von split most of his childhood between their two homes and, consequently, spent a lot of time in the worlds of comics and wrestling. He managed an independent bookstore in Ottawa for many years, all the while working on story ideas in his spare time. Eventually, he decided to make the leap to a creative life.
Von currently lives in Ottawa, Canada, with his writer/editor geek wife, Moggy, and their husky dog, Corbin.
Von was recently featured in the documentary film I AM STILL YOUR CHILD written and directed by Megan Durnford (http://iamstillyourchild.com) and produced by Katarina Soukup of Catbird Films (http://catbirdfilms.ca).

She lives in Ontario, Canada, and, when she's not solving language problems for other people, she can be found deep in a book, untangling yarn, or digging in the garden.
