Book number one of a two book dark fantasy short story series. This book series is part of the Monster Universe books which are around twenty in number so far. I read the well printed and well bound MMPB published by Baen in 2019. I have yet to decide if I am going to purchase and read the second book in the series since I am just not a big fan of short stories.
The first story in the book is "Tanya, Princess of the Elves". According to a previous documentary, Tolkien got the orcs correctly documented. But, he did not get the elves correctly documented. Some of the elves left the old country in the 17th or 18th century and moved to Alabama in the new World. Now the queen of the elves is 150 years old, four foot tall, weighs 300 pounds, lives in a ninety foot long double wide in the Enchanted Forest in Alabama, and likes to sprinkle ranch dressing on her Ho-Hos while watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. The USA government made a deal with her that she and her elves would get disability checks for the rest of their lives as long as they never ventured past the Walmart in Tupolo. Tanya is her only daughter who wants to be a monster hunter. Tanya sneaks into a monster hunter expedition and meets Edward, an orc who has watched every single Kung Fu movie and is a master of the medium length sword. Together they destroy a colony of blargs.
