Kurz-Biografie

Noch kein Bild
Leider sind keine anderen humoristischen Fantasy-Romane von Bibby bekannt. Es handelt sich um Parodien auf Conan der Barbar.

Ronan ist gerade mit der Krieger-Schule fertig, mit Dread-Locks auf dem Kopf, und soll nun den Tod seine Vaters rächen. Dazu muß er den Bösewicht Nekros finden. Dabei findet er sich mit einigen anderen Personen zusammen: Tyson, der weibliche Krieger, Tarl, der betrunkene Zauberer, und Puss, der Höllenaffe.

Aus der Amazon.co.uk-Beschreibung des Autors:
James Bibby's comic fantasies have an almost relentless pace to them--hardly has Shapestone opened but we have been introduced to a dead tomb robber, a ghostly soldier who cannot remember what his mission is, a magic pendant, a stroppy princess and a holy fool of a monk and magic worker. As these converge on the threatened city of Minas Orgun, Bibby adds to the mix some of the denser city guards in fantasy (whom he uses for parody of one of television's more popular detective series), and a variety of jokes about bad pubs, rotten food and clumsy assassins. Bibby's humour is usually good-natured, but never less than extremely broad--he explores a vein of magical slapstick as well as proliferating mildly amusing inventions about bawdy nuns and what orcs eat for breakfast. What makes Shapestone work is the tight and inventive plotting; Bibby manages an elaborate process of multiple bluffs about precisely who the villain is and why so many humans and orcs died in an unnecessary battle. There are touches of genuine insight into motive and Bibby's good guys win because they lead rather more complex inner lives than his villains. --Roz Kaveney

Ronan's Revenge, 1998:
Synopsis aus Amazon.co.uk:
RONAN'S REVENGE is the third novel in a series lampooning the epic fantasy from Conan the Barbarian to Robert Jordan's Crown of Swords novels. Written in the hilarious tradition of the bestselling Terry Pratchett and Tom Holt. In this episode our eponymous hero, having been rescued from the voluptuous clutches of the sorceress Shikara, must begin his attack on the 'Board' of the Orcbane Sword Corporation. First however he has to pass the test of the Guild of Assassins and repel the attacks of an experienced colleague. All aided by his constant companions the odiferous petty magician Tarl and Puss the carnivorous Donkey from Hell. James Bibby honed his joke crafting sword on the anvil of talent that was OTT and THREE OF A KIND, working with Lenny Henry, Chris Tarrant and Tracy Ullman and many other top television comedians. Ronan is currently under option with an animation company planning to turn him into fantasy's answer to Red Dwarf.

Shapestone, 1999:
Synopsis aus Amazon.co.uk:
Death is nasty and not a little inconvenient. Being dead even more so. Especially when you're tied to an amulet that has its own evil designs on the world. For the Princess Macoby the annoying ghost with the axe in his head who keeps hanging around trying to remember swear words is just plain irritating. Little does she know that he holds the key to the mystery of who killed her intended and betrayed her father's army and the secret of the ancient evil that is aiming to overwhelm the land. (All the usual stuff). All she wants is to find the truth. All he wants is to be dead in peace. It's the Shapestone that is standing in the way.
