(Previously published as 'Pickles and Ponies: A Fairy-Tale')

What happens when you take a heartless prince, a talking horse, a brain-washed princess, and a bunch of fish, and stick them all together in a world of puns? Ridiculousness, that's what.

Will the prince manage to rescue the princess? Will he break free from his curse? And most importantly, will there be a happily ever after?

Heartless is an adult fairy-tale (but not *that* kind of 'adult' fairy-tale) for the jaded and the young-at-heart alike.

"like a fantasy cousin to Xanth" - Piers Anthony

"a fairy-tale for grown-ups chiseled with sweet cynicism on a bedrock of puns" - Sorin Suciu, author of The Scriptlings


Any and all feedback is welcome!  Think I should change the cover?  The title?  The blurb?  Everything!?!  Let me know, I promise to be friendly :)
