Author Zach Lawrence wow’ed us all with his first book, Reclaiming the Soul of Halbert Halburt, Book I: The White Book.  The book came out in March of 2008 and found an underground niche of success that kept its readers salivating for the next book in the series, aching to find out just what happens next!  Well the wait is finally over.  You can now own your own copy of Reclaiming the Soul of Halbert Halburt Book II: Silver in hardcover or bound softcover.

Here’s a little excerpt from the prologue of the book just to whet your appetite and give you an idea of what the book is about.

When we last left our unlikely hero, Halbert Halburt, he had said goodbye to his friends to keep them safe and to trudge on to fulfill his destiny as the Scale of Humanity.  Hal had just been minding his own business in his hometown of Staggport when a talking bird who called himself The Prince of all Hawks had flown to Halbert’s house and started him on his journey.  The hawk had imparted to Hal that the reason he never felt much in the way of emotion was because he had no soul.

Don’t hesitate, go buy yourself a copy immediately, and don’t forget to pick up your copy of the first book so you can catch up on what you might be missing.  This book has it all; romance, intrigue, intricately written action scenes and comedy.  You’ll fall in love with Zach’s characters all over again if you’ve read the first book, or for the first time if you haven’t.  This is not to be missed!

You really cannot call yourself a nerd if you haven’t read this book yet.  Reclaiming The Soul of Halbert Halburt- Book 1: The White Book was this century’s introduction to a book series right on par with the fantasy writings of the 20th century greats.  (Do I need to tell you who the greats are?  C’mon, you’re a nerd!)

The book was written by our very own Zach Lawrence, one of the head writers on nerdbastards.com. In this first installment of what will be a several part series, you meet the title character, Halbert Halburt.  Nothing pleased Halbert more than a great pair of shoes, so simple was his provincial life.  That is, until a talking bird appears on his doorstep and insists he go on a quest!

You will laugh with and pity the main character as he stumbles through his quest; meeting heroes and villains along the way, as he slowly learns that he isn’t like other people.  He doesn’t have a soul.  The quest is to find the pieces of his shattered and scattered soul that lay about the vast world, waiting to be found by him before they are found by the evil Demonon and his minions and put to bad use against the human race.  The book was plugged by Howard Stern on Sirius XM radio and found a cult following niche.  Don’t you wanna be one of the cult?  I should say so!  Here’s your kool-aid.

This book has been out since March of 2008, so check it out, buy it on Amazon.  Also, check out the site dedicated to the book series.  Even better news, the second book in the series has just been given the finishing touches and sent off to be published, so keep your ear to the ground for it.  It’ll knock you on your ass with its greatness!  You will bow before Zach in trembling awe!  (Or if nothing else, you’ll be thoroughly entertained.  Who doesn’t like that!?)  More updates to follow on this amazing book series right here, on Nerd Bastards!

Edward Norton is Hulk no more and gets kicked from the new Avengers Production, Beavis and Butthead make a comeback? Cat woman is real? No More Darth Vader at conventions? and God truly hates nerds…

So lead your pack of storm troopers and watch music videos all day…

This week on the bastard cast. The bastards boast about Spartacus: Blood and Sand. A brief talk about the different types of 3D and how they might be souring the movie goers experience and will Hollywood get another original idea and stop make one remake after another.

So sit back and don’t let E.T. go anywhere near you with that crazy tumor finger and join the crew as they try desperately to stay on topic and get through a crap load of technical difficulties.
