Hunt For The Troll

$4.99 ebook, $14.95 paperback
It all starts when twenty-something software programming genius is visited while he sleeps by a mysterious figure referred to as the Troll. "We're going to change the world," the Troll tells the narrator. Soon we’re introduced to an assortment of off-beat characters: a red-haired, one-eared, female temptress; a pot-smoking tech reporter; a computer-generated Halfling; and a few venture capitalists who are all interested in finding the Troll. Mostly taking place in San Francisco, Hunt for the Troll is a quirky hybrid of mystery, pulp, and modern fairy tale.
