Publisher's Summary

Colin Farnsworth was a loser. Eking an existence from writing cheap sci-fi novels and the few dollars he makes at Fantasy Underworld card game tournaments, he lives in the house where he grew up. His only companion is Heimdall, a three pound Yorkie with big plans. Until, that is, The Brothers Four arrive on his doorstep looking for rooms to rent and with a giant troll in pursuit.
Colin's life is turned upside as he finds himself in a real world that is much stranger than the fiction he writes or the fantasy games he plays.
Leprechauns, Trolls, Faerie Folk, talking animals, and crazed municipal building inspectors galore: Welcome to the other side of Anchorage!
In a style reminiscent of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, The Four Brothers series is relatively safe for all ages, at least those who know how to giggle.

A delightful and humorous story

Would you consider the audio edition of Appetizers of the Gods to be better than the print version?

I've listened to Basil narrator other books and he's great. So yes!


What did you like best about this story?

Great dialogue, a good view of society and our foibles and a great geeky and funny lead/main character. It's brilliant. As a Terry Pratchett fan I thought it compared.


Have you listened to any of Basil Sands’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes and this was just as good. Good enough that I will be searching for other works narrated by Basil.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh and smile from start to finish.
