"Swanson has managed to create a story that swings between comedy and tragedy without missing a step. His clever writing keeps you on track and firmly fixed in the action." - Artisan Book Reviews

"The Other Hamlet Brother is a humorous, fast-paced version of Shakespeare's classic with more than a few surprises and laugh-out-loud moments." - Sublime Line Book Review

Meet Tim Hamlet, the identical twin brother of the famously melancholy Danish prince. Tim has abandoned royal life and is trying (and failing) to make it as a playwright in London. But then, tragedy rears its ugly head--King Hamlet dies, Claudius takes the throne, and young Hamlet dons an "antic disposition."

Tim charts a course for home despite his better judgment, setting sights on Denmark for the first time in years. On his journey, he crosses paths with Nick Bottom, Romeo Montague, Prospero, and other familiar faces, all the while on a collision course with fate. This tragically funny and funnily tragic adventure will keep you on your toes every step of the way, never knowing what exactly will happen next.

I highly recommend this book for fans of satire, drama, adventure, and fantasy. An absolutely stellar read!
