The Infinite Woes of Being a Hero (A Fairy Tale) is a satirical fantasy novel about a modern day knight in shining armour who hates his job and longs to quit. Stallions, princesses and handsome knights mix with social media, networking dinners and HR to poke fun at the modern workplace, class prejudice and fairy tales.

Based on David Christopher Johnston’s first published short story of the same name (read here), The Infinite Woes of Being a Hero (A Fairy Tale) is at times hilarious and at other times sad, charting the rise and fall of the charming, yet delusional protagonist, Sir Barry of Bognor, and the destructive societal pressures of success and status.

The Infinite Woes of Being a Hero (A Fairy Tale) is coming soon.
