With Smells Like Finn Spirit (hardcover, digital, audiobook), writer Randy Henderson concludes the funny, off-beat fantasy trilogy he began with 2015’s Finn Fancy Necromancy and continued with 2016’s Bigfootlose And Finn Fancy Free. But while Smells Like Finn Spirit may be the end of this story cycle, it may not be the end of this series, as Henderson explained when I queried him about this “final” chapter.
While the number of serious fantasy novels for adults grows every day, the number that don’t take themselves so seriously is, well, okay, it’s also growing, just not as fast. Which is why we need more writers like Randy Henderson, the author of the funny fantasy novel Finn Fancy Necromancy and its newly released sequel, Bigfootloose And Finn Fancy Free (hardcover, digital). Though in talking to Henderson about the new book, it’s clear his intention wasn’t to just make you laugh, to amuse you, to be a clown, what do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?
