Stanley is your typical everyday, apathetic slacker, stuck in a dead-end job, when fate, destiny, and/or an unusual shipping error on the part of a large e-commerce site suddenly bestow upon him a shiny, sexy, nearly-magical sword.
Soon thereafter, he encounters a succession of mentally-unstable invisible ninjas, nubile yet soulless college students, and fairly underwhelming mythical creatures in his way, and reluctantly confronts the possibility that destiny has greater things than middle-management in store for him.
Follow along with Stanley as he overcomes adversity, hardship, misunderstandings, disobedient employees, raging hormones, and an invisible neo-Nazi ninja assassin in his own personal quest to get the girl and live happily ever after.
A charming contemporary fairy tale for sensible people, Stanley and His Sword is a humorous and entertaining 11,000-word tale of lust, fate, and really shiny swords sure to delight a handful of Christopher Moore fans, somewhere.
