Fairy Brewhaha At The Lucky Nickel Saloon(2005)
(A book in the Lucky Nickel Saloon series)
A novel by Ken Rand
US regulars at the Lucky Nickel Saloon, Second Ave, Laramie, Wyoming Territory, US of A, are shocked to hear from Mick, the Irish barkeep, that his mortgage is due tomorrow. Bankruptcy looms, dire straits for certain sure, as we-all're broke and none of us can get credit nowheres else. Sudden-like, a gang of fairies invades town. They're intent on robbing the circus, just arrived in town for a show, of payroll gold. But afore the robbery, said bandits intend to get drunk on Fairy BrewHaHa, concocted only in the Lucky Nickel. Trouble is, Mick, who brewed said brew, can't remember the secret formula. He better remember quick, as the fairies get agitated and commence to breaking up furniture and glassware. Trapped under the saloon piano by the furious fairy folk, yer faithful narrator Tom Dooley (at-yer-service), plus a long list of characters, must do battle - guns, poker, fisticuffs, swinging parasols, and wooden leg clubs - with the fairy horde. We got ourselves a saloon to save.
