“A winning fantasy, this satirical, rollicking adventure . . . keeps a light, amused and snappy tone, with allusions to popular culture (“The Duke of Yorker” magazine, for instance), fun with names and an especially effective satire of Hollywood talent packaging. A satisfying and involved climax renders a fairy tale ending with an upward lilt, leaving the reader ready for new adventures.”
Publishers Weekly for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award

“Laugh-out-loud funny. A send-up of scores of fantasy novels of time past. I’d certainly recommend it.”
-Glen Cook

“If Conan the Barbarian met Entourage, you’d get Stuff of Legends. A pleasure to read.”
-Jody Lynn Nye, co-author of Myth-Chief

“This debut novel is witty, creative, and completely enjoyable…Full of adventure, clever puns, and satirical characters, fantasy fans will love Gibson’s good-natured humor and smart writing. I was impressed with this strong debut.”

“If you like the early work of Pratchett, stories by Esther Friesner, or the Goblin books by Jim C. Hines, then Stuff of Legends is a work to add to your shelves. I, for one, am looking forward to more stories from Gibson’s pen.”
