From the author: "Once upon a time, there was a young boy named Pumpernickel "my dad was drunk when he named me" Brett, who very much wanted to be loved by his family and village. But they didn't love him. They dressed him in burlap and refused to call him "Nick" at his request. So he went off on a grand quest to rescue a princess from a nearby tower in hopes of maybe finding a bride and someone to respect him. He didn't find a princess, exactly...more like a prince in drag. But beggars can't be choosers."
