Fiction: Standard Hero Behavior

I recently read the book Standard Hero Behavior by John David Anderson. I enjoyed this book immensely! Two bumbling teens are off on a quest to find heroes to save their village and run into all manner of tongue-in-cheek trouble. Highlights include a narcoleptic swordsman, a hero with ads from merchant sponsors all over his armor and a witch that can't cackle. The book is an interesting blend of fantasy with elements of today's society and it actually delivers a nice message too. Highly recommended.
