New Release from Christopher Moore

Book Release: April 22nd, 2014

Christopher Moore's new book is due out on April 22nd, and after that he goes on tour for a book signing! If you haven't read him before, he is a comedic author, similar to Terry Pratchett or Douglas Adams. But where Pratchett writes about his fantasy world, Discworld, and Adams wrote about science fiction, Moore's work tends to include paranormal creatures and re-imaginings of historical events. His books are clever, irreverent, imaginative and highly entertaining.

Book Description:

 "New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore channels William Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe in this satiric Venetian gothic that brings back the Pocket of Dog Snogging, the eponymous hero of Fool, along with his sidekick, Drool, and pet monkey, Jeff

Venice, a long time ago. Three prominent Venetians await their most loathsome and foul dinner guest, the erstwhile envoy of Britain and France, and widower of the murdered Queen Cordelia: the rascal-Fool Pocket.

This trio of cunning plotters-the merchant, Antonio; the senator, Montressor Brabantio; and the naval officer, Iago-have lured Pocket to a dark dungeon, promising an evening of sprits and debauchery with a rare Amontillado sherry and Brabantio's beautiful daughter, Portia.

But their invitation is, of course, bogus. The wine is drugged. The girl isn't even in the city limits. Desperate to rid themselves once and for all of the man who has consistently foiled their grand quest for power and wealth, they have lured him to his death. (How can such a small man, be such a huge obstacle?). But this Fool is no fool . . . and he's got more than a few tricks (and hand gestures) up his sleeve."
