I discovered Andersen Prunty through the Bizarro community. Even so the books I’ve read from him are more horror, or thriller than anything else. His book The Beard on the other hand is pure Bizarro fun. It’s a very original adventure narrated by David Glum, who after failing to get his first book published decides to go home and grow a beard. David sets out on a journey to find his grandfather who was kidnapped by the Nefarions. There are lots of interesting and bizarre characters throughout this book, along with unique landscapes. With each book that I read from Mr. Prunty he is rising closer to the top of my list of go to authors. He has quite the imagination and it really shines in The Beard.
