.. . reminds me of Terry Pratchett... if he was Canadian and had ADHD. --- Steve Patterson, author and host of The Debaters (CBC Radio 1) As he did whenever he wanted their attention, Capitaine Fromage shot one of his crew with a pistol... Like every story in this book, the characters gets up to nsense right from the start. This is 'hilarious... off the wall... the strangest book you'll ever read.. (Matt Carter, Grid City Magazine) The twists are endless, but each tale is an offbeat linguistic romp... sketches of a sunshine mind making leaps of logic into the absurd... (Sheree Fitch, author, Stephen Leacock Award shortlist) A time-travel prototype lands in a Viking village. A horse-riding fiddler crab reveals his secret. A despotic tyrant is confronted by a penguin. The author meets Bill Murray. Each story is an imaginative gem... funny, charming, surprising, whimsical.. (Don Ferguson, Royal Canadian Air Farce) with a style that's tight, airy and whimsical (Colleen McKie, Lavender Lines Book Review) In VENGEFUL HANK & OTHER SHORTWEIRD STORIES, St. Pierre showcases an ability to conjure characters and situations as universally ridiculous as a Gary Larson 'Far Side' cartoon, mixing the dry wit of Steve Martin's 'Pure Drivel' with the absurd logic of Douglas Adams.
