A hapless medieval wizard has clawed his way up from the depths of cyberspace to appear on North Devon book shelves.Returning to the "|ost" art of printed paper, local author Jay Holloway has magicked his humorous book, The Prang Codex, from an online "e-book" into a paperback now available at Ilfracombe Book Shop and Walter Henry Book Shop in Bideford.The Ilfracombe man's novel follows the misadventures of the wizard through less-than-honest accounts left behind by Prang in his journal - together with a more rounded and less flattering version of events from reputable sources of the time. In other words prepare for a tale of underhand dealing, featuring dark deeds, tuneless wassailing and more besides.Jay once worked in animation as a cameraman and had originally developed the Prang tales as scripts for a cartoon series, even to the point of putting a pilot episode together with voice-overs by actor Craig Charles, familiar to Coronation Street and a new generation of Red Dwarf fans.The author has published a book of nonsense verse called The King of String, also available at the above local shops.He is planning a sequel to the prang saga and is also working on a new novel, a tongue-in-cheek thriller entitled Antlers of Doom.Interested readers can delve into the world of Prang at the Ilfracombe and Bideford book shops at a special introductory discount. It is also available through www.amazon.com or the publisher's website www.lulu.com.
