For those of you not in the know, Fisher is Fisher King a young man who lives in a seaside town called Eternity. Long ago, one of Fisher's forebears was cursed and the curse has carried down to Fisher. His job, on earth, is to keep supernatural forces at bay, be they demons, ghosts, witches, trolls, or whatever. He uses magic to send these creatures back where they invariably belong; The Other Side.
Fisher is not alone in his role, however, he is helped by o coterie of "teddy bears", who to all intents and purposes are just little people. They are, without a doubt, the stars of these stories and each has a unique and often hilarious personality. There is Tiger, Edison and my personal favorite, Ginger. Ginger's specialty is anything to do with fire. He just loves using a blowtorch or whatever else is handy to deal with those pesky demons. There is even a love interest of sorts, for Fisher, but in line with the tone of these tales, it is no normal love affair.
These are three full-length adventures and will give you a full almost 600 pages of reading. The tales do follow on one from the next, so it is best to read them in chronological order, but having said that, not absolutely necessary.
I had read one Hodden bear story prior to this and I have to say I am now smitten with the cute, furry, little fellow. I know you will enjoy this book if you like a quirky, black humour with a bit of old-fashioned adventure and fun. An excellent read. Well worth the four stars I gave it. With an editing tidy up it would be worth five.
