– “What I expected to be a tech centered mystery turned out to be a combination of mystery with added ingredients of pulp, modern fairytale, and urban fantasy with a steam punk edge. This novel certainly took me out my comfort zone and I’m more than grateful for the journey.” —Escaping to a Book

Hunt for the Troll“Mark Richardson’s impressive debut novel, Hunt for the Troll, is a wonderful hybrid of high-tech noir and Murakami-like magical realism.” —Al Riske, writer of Precarious, Sabrina’s Window, and The Possibility of Snow

– “Mark Richardson has achieved the stuff of dreams for debut novelists. Hunt for the Troll is an artfully told, utterly original and wonderfully quirky genre-bender that is unpredictable in all the right ways. My prediction? Readers will say, ‘Where did this guy come from?'” —Greg Bardsley, author of Cash Out
