Humorous Epic Fantasy
'Gaspar The Thief' is a humorous fantasy novel by British author, David A. Lindsay.
Follow the adventures of Gaspar, a freelance thief who stubbornly refuses to swear fealty to the Thieves' Guild.
Cursed with a special affinity for calamity and mishap, and a talent for snatching defeat from the brink of victory, our hero blunders from one misfortune to the next, yet somehow always manages to survive to tell the tale.
Accompanied by his long-suffering companions - Hubris, a spellbroker who refuses to pay his dues to Wizards' Hall, and Marna, a feisty thiefess with a quick tongue and a quicker temper - our unlikely hero encounters looming retribution and imminent catastrophe at every step.
From a sinister funeral ship to a scheming seductress; from a puzzling murder to a gang of merciless ship-wreckers; and from a goblin army laying siege to an ancient border fortress to a mischievous wood-wight with a penchant for table legs and floorboards, there's no end to the troubles he can find!
Told with an appealing mixture of seriousness and humour, this is an exciting romp based in a fantasy world where anything can, and usually does, happen!
Gaspar And The Fantastical Hats is a prequel novella of 28,500 words. It's a humorous fantasy tale of intrigue, politics and outlandish fashion that precedes the adventures described in Gaspar The Thief. It is included as an extra in the paperback version of Gaspar The Thief.
Available in both paperback and Kindle e-book format at Amazon UK, Amazon USA and all other Amazon stores world-wide.
