Falstaff's Big Gamble
Hank Quense, author
This novel is Shakespeare's Worst Nightmare. It takes two of the Bard's most famous plays, Hamlet and Othello, and recasts them with fantasy characters in a place called Gundarland. Hamlet is a dwarf and Othello is a dark elf. Iago and his wife, Emilia, are trolls. If that isn't bad enough, these two tragedies are now comedies with Falstaff, Shakespeare's most popular rogue, thrown in as a bonus. Both Hamlet and Othello are plagued by the scheming Falstaff, a human.
Reviews
Bruce Boughner: Amazon reviewer

Falstaff's Big Gamble is humorous take on the fantasy stories. Take the Character' from Shakespeare's Hamlet, thrown in a little MacBeth and seasoning with a little from the Knight's Tale movie and shake vigorously to achive the proper mixture that puts you in mind for Aspirin's Klahd, Craig Shaw Gardner's East Kingdom and John Morressy's Kedrigern novels. Ripping good fun and adventure!

Kirkus Reviews

Quense puts classic Shakespeare characters in a fantastical world, with humorous results.
Several memorable Shakespeare characters appear in Quense's fantasy novel, which takes familiar tragedies and turns them into comedies.
Readers with a taste for adventure will appreciate Falstaff's high-seas hunt for pirates, and those looking for romance will find it in a subplot featuring Falstaff's half-pint sidekick, Poulet.
A quirky spin on Shakespeare combined with a funny fantasy/adventure tale.

Lakshmi C: Amazon reviewer

This book was clever, funny and it would definitely make Shakespeare smile.

Readers Favorite Review

Readers both familiar and unfamiliar with William Shakespeare's characters will appreciate this gem of a story. 
Author Hank Quense has written a totally humorous tongue-in-cheek story using famous Shakespearean characters who live and play side by side with trolls, dwarfs and elves.   This is an engaging tale with characters that resemble their Shakespearean origins while the multiple plots pay lip service to two of Shakespeare's most famous tragedies, now changed into comedies.
