J. Zachary Pike was once a basement-dwelling fantasy gamer, but over time he metamorphosed into a basement-dwelling fantasy writer. By day Zack is a web professional and creative-for-hire, but at night he returns to his lair to create books, films, and illustrations that meld fantasy elements with offbeat humor. A New Englander by birth and by temperament, Zack writes strangely funny fiction on the seacoast of New Hampshire.

The ceiling of an ornate temple with the words Arth's Pantheon: an Overview


One of the most frequent requests for Arth lore that I get is for more detail on the deities that govern it. There’s a lot to tell; Arth has a big pantheon, though most of them are only tangentially mentioned in The Dark Profit Saga. Still, if you know who to look for, you can see many of their names appearing throughout the story, as an active, raucous collection of gods and goddesses have sh...

"Quite possibly the best book I've read this year. It runs the gamut from hilarious to heart-wrenching. Not only are the world-building and character development top-notch, Pike's construction of elaborate economic models is absolutely astounding...." Read more of this review »
Son of a Liche by J. Zachary Pike
"This book took a long time to finish but it made me so happy I’m wondering if I simply didn’t want it to end. ‘Son of a Liche’ is the second book of a trilogy. They say middle books are often the weakest but I’m not sure it applies to this one. Pi..." Read more of this review »

“The exact ratio of irony to matter in the universe is known as Nove’s Constant, and by definition it’s more than you’d expect.”
J. Zachary Pike, Son of a Liche

“Marketing is its own kind of magic, is it not?” said Zurthraka. “An illusion that men pay to be fooled by.”
J. Zachary Pike, Orconomics

“Truly, nothing is better than to crush your competition, to drive down their profit margins, to hear the lamentations of their sales representatives.”
