A Wonderful Day for a Quest by Michael D. Young

A Novella

A lighthearted fantasy romp that pokes fun at common fantasy tropes.

A wonderful day for a quest

The wizard Jackdaw has deciphered the uppercase Prophecy and has found out that the realm's only hope lines in...someone. With part of prophecy missing, it's not clear whether the realm's only hope lies in a knight with a title as long as his sword, or in a sub-assistant goat herder with a similar name. To find out, they must decipher the Riddle of Ages, a three-part conundrum that is said to contain the villainous ELM's only weakness. If neither of them can do it, magic bean production will cease forever, leaving the world a far less magical, and musical, place.

Sample text:

Once upon a time, in a verdant valley where the sun show- ered the resplendent sunrises over every blushing bud of morning…

Hey, you! Yes, you with the drooping eyes. I saw you yawn. Those droopy eyelids. What’s with that? Don’t you like idyllic pastoral scenes? Sunrises? They put you to sleep? I did not take you to be a nocturnal creature, though it is the only conclusion I can reach if a sunrise puts you to sleep.
