Kevin Hearne: The Demon Barker of Wheat Street

The Demon Barker of Wheat Street (Iron Druid novella from CARNIEPUNK)
by Kevin Hearne
(contemporary fantasy)

This was a novella filled with classic Iron Druid humor and quality writing. If you like the full-length stories, I think you will like this short as well. It’s a fun peek into some of the random encounters that Atticus could get up to which are not, strictly speaking, part of the main plotline. It was fun to have completely not-series-arc-related bad guys. It was great to have the whole thing be self-contained. (AKA even if you haven’t read anything else by Mr. Hearne, you could pick this up and not be lost. You might not understand it as well as someone who’s read the main novels, but you would still enjoy it.)

The basic premise is that it’s magical mischief set in a Kansas fair. I forget if it’s a state fair or a county fair, but that doesn’t really matter. It’s a fair, and we all have some kind of experience with fairs. Going into much more detail than that would mean spoilers, so I won’t. Great fun, though.
