This humorous parody of the fantasy genre and the world of
Mmorpg comes a story about the death and resurrection of a
minor video game character by Zero Punctuation i> writer Yahtzee
Croshaw (Will 'save the Galaxy for Food, J i>am)
world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less
interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully
grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about sixty years.
When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber
and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to
find a way to die properly, once and for all.
On his side, he's
got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death
wish. But he's up against tough odds :angry mobs of adventurers, a
body falling apart at the seams--and a team of programmers racing a
deadline to hammer out the last few bugs in their Ai.
For lovers of bizarre horror, absurdist British humor, and
unforgettable characters, only some of them human!
legitimate breakout hit from the gaming community in recent
memory.-Boing Boing i>
i>&#160;Croshaw has shown his razor sharp humor can stay intact for
400 pages and, more importantly, he's proven he has the chops to tell
an interesting, unique and utterly entertaining narrative that moves
along at a quick clip and never loses its charm. -Joystick
[Croshaw is] able to pull off slapstick comedy in
print, and that's no easy feat. -Chris 'sims,&#160;Comics
