About Hunt for the Troll

It all starts when a twenty-something software programming genius is visited while he sleeps by a mysterious figure referred to as the Troll. “We’re going to change the world,” the Troll tells the narrator. Soon we’re introduced to an assortment of off-beat characters: a red-haired, one-eared, female temptress; a pot-smoking tech reporter; a computer-generated Halfling; and a few venture capitalists who are all interested in finding the Troll. Mostly taking place in San Francisco, Hunt for the Troll is a quirky hybrid of mystery, pulp, and modern fairy tale.

Praise for Hunt for the Troll

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This book was fun from start to finish. Not just fun, but also smart, relevant, intriguing, absurd, and maybe a little prescient. My inner science fiction fan, my tech-loving side and my novelist persona — all had a good time reading Hunt for the Troll. Amazon review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

An excellent mix of Neal Stephenson and Haruki Murakami, Mark Richardson’s first novel is two parts magical realism, one part cyberpunk, with a dash of classical noir. Amazon Review
