In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about 60 years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all. On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds: angry mobs of adventurers, a body falling apart at the seams-and a team of programmers racing a deadline to hammer out the last few bugs in their AI. *Mogworld is the debut novel from video-game icon Yahtzee Croshaw (Zero Punctuation)!With an exclusive one-chapter preview of Yahtzee Croshaw's next novel, Jam-coming to bookstores in October 2012! *Ben Yahtzee Croshaw's video review site, Zero Punctuation, receives over 2,500,000 unique hits a month, and has been licensed by G4 Television. *Yahtzee's blog receives about 150,000 hits per day.The first legitimate breakout hit from the gaming community in recent memory.-Boing Boing. --Provided by publisher.

Surprisingly good. Teen read as well.

From the writer/speaker of web video review series Zero Punctuation Yahtzee Croshaw, is a book with the same sharp wit and insight. It has a similar dry British wit to the works of Douglas Adams, like Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

"Did you really think you could outsmart one such as I?" boomed Dreadgrave, returning to the matter at hand. "Slip past my invincible undead legions?" He gestured to Meryl and me---the sort of acknowledgement that was another of the many little things that made him such a great person to work for. "Many adventurers have attempted to best my fortress, but never one as pathetic as you."

"Well if you're trying to hurt Slippery John's feelings, then mission accomplished," muttered the rogue, not quietly enough.

"Cast this sniveling wretch into the Acid Fountain," ordered Dreadgrave.

"Emptied for cleaning," I hissed rapidly into his ear.

"Wait," he added, without missing a beat. "On second thoughts, throw him into the dungeons. His fate will be all the more agonizing if he is left to contemplate it for awhile."
