James Aldridge’s new novel, Mockery in Arms, is a wild, irreverent, and often hilarious ride that tells the story of a ragtag group of mercenaries hired to protect a small town from a rival gang. The mercenaries, led by the grumpy but shrewd Captain Fuzzybottom, are a motley bunch, made up of everything from a paranoid hermit to a blind swordsman. As the townspeople prepare for the annual fair, they start to notice that something is wrong. The rival gang has been mysteriously absent, and the townspeople start to get worried. It’s up to the mercenaries to find out what’s going on and put an end to the threat. Along the way, they’ll have to deal with rival gangs, savage animals, and even the occasional monster. Mockery in Arms is a rollicking good time and is sure to leave readers laughing out loud.; 8vo; 382 pages.
