In his exciting debut novel “The Legend of Demnog” (published by Trafford Publishing) author Seth Stadel introduces readers to a new dimension of “postmodern fantasy” and encourages them to join him in experiencing this amazing story that culminates with one of the most provocative twists in modern literature.

“This book breaks new ground,” the author says, “in a developing sub-genre of fantasy, known loosely as ‘postmodern fantasy.’ It purposely deviates from the traditional creatures of fantasy (elves, dwarves, wizards, etc.) and presents a world with all new creatures, as well as detailed pictures of these creatures to boot!”

Presented as a story found among ashes and charred historical artifacts, “The Legend of Demnog” follows four strangers – Cleatis and Sesstis Pumpernickle, Gottlieb of Shifting Corners, and Unsun Uvskapple – as they search for the Legend of Demnog, an ancient treasure and suit of armor greedily sought by the two opposing governments of the lands of Demnog and Wooernog.

Through personal recounts of their fragmented pasts and dialogues with moot guides, each of these four strangers unknowingly finds himself simultaneously living out two contrasting lives, one of which evades everyone but you, the reader.

Complete with an appendix that will educate readers on the stormy background surrounding the central story, “The Legend of Demnog” is a thrilling adventure sure to become an instant classic.
