Writers of the Future grand prize winner Randy Henderson presents a dark and quirky debut in Finn Fancy Necromancy .

Finn Gramaraye was framed for the crime of dark necromancy at the age of 15, and exiled to the Other Realm for twenty five years. But now that he's free, someone-probably the same someone-is trying to get him sent back. Finn has only a few days to discover who is so desperate to keep him out of the mortal world, and find evidence to prove it to the Arcane Enforcers. They are going to be very hard to convince, since he's already been convicted of trying to kill someone with dark magic.

But Finn has his family: His brother Mort who is running the family necrotorium business now, his brother Pete who believes he's a werewolf, though he is not, and his sister Samantha who is, unfortunately, allergic to magic. And he's got Zeke, a fellow exile and former enforcer, who doesn't really believe in Finn's innocence but is willing to follow along in hopes of getting his old job back.

Looking for some out-of-the-ordinary fantasy? Of course you are -- that's why people read fantasy novels. This book contains some of the typical topoi associated with Fae, but also establishes its own brand of the supernatural. Which totally includes sasquatch mercenaries.

While reading, I've often found myself grinning at Henderson's wacky turns of phrases -- almost as if he found every cliche, spread them with jam, fed them to a jabberwocky and plopped the fermented end results back on page.

Washingtonians and armchair travellers will also enjoy the Port Townsend setting. Amidst the supernatural brouhaha, Henderson highlights the PNW region's beauty with ferry rides, architectural descriptions of Kingston and Port Townsend (including some smuggling history!) and even takes a trip to Seattle's weirdly-shaped EMP museum.

Fans of gonzo fantasy humorists like Christopher Moore, A. Lee Martinez, Robert Rankin or Tom Holt will enjoy Henderson's first book.
