background information on the two strange worlds I write about

During the course of writing many short stories, novellas and novels, I've created two different worlds. One of them, Gundarland, is populated by humans, dwarfs, elves, trolls and other fantasy races. In Gundarland, many of the stories take place in whole or in part in the city of Dun Hythe, the country's biggest city and the largest port, hence it has its own section in the book. The second world is a race of aliens named after their home world of Zaftan 31B.
This book is designed to acquaint readers with the intricacies of both worlds

My social profiles on...
Award-winning author Hank Quense lives in Bergenfield, NJ with his wife Pat. They have two daughters and five grandchildren. He writes humorous fantasy and scifi stories. On occasion, he also writes an article on fiction writing or book marketing but says that writing nonfiction is like work while writing fiction is fun. He refuses to write serious genre fiction saying there is enough of that on the front page of any daily newspaper and on the evening TV news.
Zaftan Entrepreneurs is his latest work. In it, an alien mining ship discovers a planet that holds promise to be a mining bonanza. Unfortunately, it is inhabited by humans, dwarfs, elves and other races and they object to the mining expeditions.
Hank's previous works include Tales From Gundarland, a collection of fantasy stories. Readers Favorite awarded the book a medal and EPIC designated it a finalist in its 2011 competition. His Fool's Gold is a retelling of the ancient Rhinegold myth and Tunnel Vision is a collection of twenty previously published short stories. Build a Better Story is a book of advice for fiction writers.
Altogether, Hank has over forty published short stories and a number of non-fiction articles.
He is presently working on novel that combines the plots and characters from Shakespeare's Hamlet and Othello with the character Falstaff thrown in for good measure. He is also working on a follow-up novel to Zaftan Entrepreneurs called Zaftan Miscreants.
He has a number of links where you can follow his work and his occasional rants:
