Tales From Gundarland is a collection of humorous stories. The book blurb describes it best: 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.

Here is what readers and reviewers say about it:
Really fun read! I love the twist on well known tales - my favorite being Romeo and Juliet. Oh, just thinking about it still makes me smile. This is a brilliant collection that comes highly recommended! Be warned - you won't be able to read these without getting a chuckle (or a belly laugh) or two. 5 stars: tweezle: Librarything

This collection of stories is fun from beginning to end. Hank Quesne has a Pratchett-like gift for extracting humour from science fiction and fantasy settings and characters and managing to slide social commentaries among the jokes. (from an Amazon review)

Tales from The Gunderland is one of those books that could easily become a cult phenomenon. I really enjoyed the humor, which was sort of a cross between Hitchiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Monty Python. Each story was unique and self-contained, but still contributed to the “Gunderland Universe” as a whole. My favorite is still Quense’s retake on Romeo and Juliet. But seriously, who wouldn’t love a book with dwarfs, pirates, and aliens?
Hank Quense has created a collection I’d be proud to not only have on my shelf, but would definitely recommend to my friends. Anyone who enjoys off-beat humor should pick up this book. I’m looking forward to seeing more of his work. Five bookmarks, for sure! ~Reviewed by Sherry Ficklin for Mind Fog Reviews

One print copy of the book is available (within the USA) for the first response. Other responders can have an ebook in any of the popular formats
