Book description:​

“Banny was funny. Once I got into the flow of the story I couldn’t stop reading. Colorfully depicted, this zany tale is sure to put a smile on any reader’s face.”***********************************************************************************************************************************************Banny the Bricklayer accidentally descends into the Underworld.And then must go on a haphazard quest to obtain magic milk from a cursed cow in order to save his son. Banny is up against a Hellish army of “insectoid-mutants”, fallen Gods, a dangerously ambitious cricket, and his own ego.***********************************************************************************************************************************************What readers are saying:________________________________________________________________________________________________________________”Banny the Bricklayer awakens in a ditch, soaking wet from the rain. He finally stumbles home only to encounter Old Lady Lemonade, who is about as sweet and pleasant as her name makes her sound. It’s hard to know the last time the bricklayer laid any bricks because he has a bad back and it seems like the heaviest thing he’s lifting right now is a 12 pack of beer. Unfortunately for them, Banny has a wife and children to support. And then suddenly, literally on his way down the steps, fate changes for our Banny! This is a funny book with dark humor and great dialect. I liked it but it may not appeal to everyone. Kind of like a sardonic version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy meets Alice in Wonderland meets A Christmas Carol, Banny takes the trip of his lifetime which will change his world forever.” – Sigrid Macdonald_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________”A wonderfully entertaining story. Banny the Bricklayer trying to do good and accidentally falls into the Underworld for a hellish adventure. Great fantasy reading. Check it out.” – Darron Clark “I’m a huge fan of Tom Robbins, and this has that same quirky feel to it, but far more darkly-surreal.It’s a fun read that, at moments, lands poetic. I love the use of symbolism, like the fact that the stairway to hell has 12 steps, which is comical given Banny’s–the protagonist–love of the sauce.Banny is absolutely a character you wonder if redemption is possible, which makes what motivates his humanity even sweeter.If you like dream-quality, john-waters-oddity, David-Cronenberg-Naked Lunch’esk adventures, then dive in. It’ll deliver.” – D. Taylor__________Excerpt: When someone asks you repeatedly to do something, you better do it. The Universe has a funny sense of cosmic irony. Say for instance when you leave your apartment to buy some milk and you take the stairs, but this time the sixth step gives way and you fall through it. Had Banny repaired the step on one of the numerous occasions his landlords asked, sure, he could have avoided his fate in the next sentence. Banny fell through the step, through the floor beneath, crashed through the basement even though that was cement, and ended up smack dab in the middle of the Underworld. Plotted in the center of a vast and bleak desert with that sticky wavy heat, is a huge neon sign that blinks: BUDDY CHARN’S DISCOUNT END-O-THE-LINE TRAVEL The place boasted nothing else save for Buddy Charn himself and his big black Caddy-Lack. With a flick of his scrawny skeleton wrist, Buddy flips on his black Ray Bans, “You picked a hell of a time to die, fella.” “I’m dead,” Banny rises to his unsteady feet. “No one usually ends up in the Lonely Desert less they kicked their shiny shine buckets and run out o’ time, Mister,” the reed-thin ghoul in the dark suit dances a jittery-jig, bows, and smiles a wicked grin.
