Harry Connolly: A Key, An Egg, An Unfortunate Remark

Harry Connolly is the uncrowned king of the elevator pitch: After “Epic Fantasy without the boring bits” for his Epic Fantasy Trilogy The Great Way, now it’s “Pacifist Urban Fantasy” for his most recent offering, the (you guessed it) Urban Fantasy novel A Key, An Egg, An Unfortunate Remark (and he’s really good with snappy titles, too).


Harry Connolly: The Way Into Chaos

The Way Into Chaos¬†is the first volume in a trilogy that apparently was funded via Kickstarter¬†with a working title something like “Epic Fantasy without the Boring Bits”. One might disagree as to whether the “boring bits” (which presumably means infodumps on world building and extensive descriptions of clothes, scenery and customs) have to always be that (personally, I’d say it largely depends on the way they’re done), but I think everyone who has read past the first twenty or so pages of this novel will agree that The Way Into Chaos in any case is not boring at all.
