Sept. 4, 2010 - PRLog -- Results of the competition were announced on September 1, 2010.  To see the competition review on the book see the link below.

At the same time, book reviewers are raving about the collection.  Fran Lewis, an independent review wrote in part, "Welcome to Gundarland, a unique place filled with humans, dwarfs, yuks, elves.  . . you'll want to read this outstanding, hysterical, humorous, creative and wildly funny novel by author Hank Quense. Buy the book and you'll get your very own gold passport to visit this wonderful place.  Hank Quense is the master of humor, satire and hilarity in this great book filled with magic, wizards, humans, and many races and, of course, some zany characters that I hope he brings back in his next book."

Lois Henderson, a reviewer for the Bookpleasures site wrote in part: "This delightful collection of six short stories and two novellas is set in the mythical realm of Gundarland on a planet named Gundar, which, according to Quense, was named after “the omniscient god who accidentally created the universe with an explosive sneeze caused by snorting a larger-than-average dose of His favorite recreational powder. . . . A few of the tales are under ten pages, while the others vary substantially in length. All of them, however, are side-splittingly funny, and, if you enjoy the writings of Terry Pratchett, you should enjoy these too. Quense’s irreverent take on the world of fantasy is most amusing, I find, when he describes the relationships between fellow characters and between man and beast.

The Crazy Bookworm said on her website:  The idea of this book was unique and creative. The book starts up with the introduction to "Gunderland".  I haven't read anything like this before, it was refreshing to read takes on classic stories with a fun twist to them. My favourites were "Gunderland", "Romeo & Juliet" and "The Queens Hero."

Quense describes the book this way: Laughter is like free health insurance: you can't get too much of it.  This book will give you enough laughs to boost your health.
It's filled with delightful entertainment.  Without commercial interruption!
Gundarland is populated by humans, dwarfs, elves and other races; it's the backdrop for unique adventures, brilliant heroes and cunning villains.
There are six short stories and two novellas in here.  All are new. You'll meet some of Shakespeare's most famous characters, a warrior-cook, vigilantes, a trio of beautiful, lusty princesses to mention just a few of the memorable characters in the stories.

Tales from Gundarland is available in both print and ebook versions.  The ebook has a number of formats to download for various e-readers.  For links to sellers go to: http://hankquense.com/TFG-main.html
