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.

"In short I absolutely loved this book. It's been ages since I've been so completely entertained by a story. A solidly in narrative from start to finish. Engaging characters, flawed and funny. You root for them all the way through. Deftly satirical..." Read more of this review »

"Think Discworld-like satire through the lens of a fantasy gamer.

Gorm Ingerson is a has-been, a shamed hero who spends his days drinking himself into oblivion in backwater towns. He's offered a chance to regain his title as a hero, and (with a lit..." Read more of this review »

"After listening to this book, I was immediately annoyed. Why? No audio book 2 waiting for me.

I find that annoying.

Good: I liked the tone of the book. The plot was good. Sneaky. Relevant to today's times. All that stuff.

Bad: It's the normal proble..." Read more of this review »

“The Contract had an air of esoteric mysticism when it covered topics related to the universe’s deepest secrets, yet it was gratuitously specific regarding the wrath of Thotash and the penalty for default. Huge swaths of the unholy text were dedicated to the terrors and woes that would fall upon those who failed to meet the Terms, including pestilences of the skin, debilitating afflictions of vital organs, nameless horrors from forgotten dimensions, and the “rain of teeth,” though whose teeth was uncertain. Article VIII, section 3, subsection B was particularly unsettling, assuming one had sufficient familiarity with anatomy to grasp it fully”

“The job market, however, proved distressingly uncooperative. All of the local barista positions had been filled by more enterprising philosophy majors, and Arthur lacked the skills to do much beyond make a cup of coffee.”
