Recieved a copy of Jason Cosmo as an unbirthday gift from a friend, after talking about humourous fantasy.

The Jason Cosmo trilogy is irreverent and sarcastic - two of my favourite qualities in a book. I reckon Jason Cosmo is the best writer you've never heard of. If you enjoy Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams and have done a bit of role playing in your dim dark past, these books could be for you!

Can a poor woodcutter really become a superhero?
