What is the Guild of Independent Fools? Formed in 2018 by edict of the Council of Elders, The Independent Guild of Fools is a guild of independent fools. (Marty! Where's the thesaurus? ... Under the leg of coffee table? Marty, I told you to swap that out for my fat jeans...No, I'm not wearing my fat jeans. I'm down a belt loop, thank you very much.)
How many times have you read a comedy book and thought, "Wow, that was great. Too bad there isn't more of this kind of stuff out there"? Well there is more, and we'll prove it even if we have to write it ourselves. The Independent Guild of Fools is a chaotic consortium of self-published comic SFF authors gathered together in one convenient location.
Each author in the Guild has been hand-selected by the Council of Elders to ensure only the highest quality (or, failing that, the highest quantity) of jokes. Authors must submit their books to the Council of Elders, who evaluate every author using their patented Nine Step Process of Joke Quality Assurance. If the author is deemed acceptably funny, he or she shall be allowed to join.
The Patented Nine Step Process
Step 1. Receive a book from an applicant. Step 2. Ask our intern Marty to brew a fresh pot of coffee for the Elders. Step 3. Play video games. Step 4. Watch stand-up comedy specials. Step 5. Decide where to go for lunch. Step 6. Go out for lunch. Step 7. Argue about the Oxford comma. Step 8. Tweet a dog photo. Step 9. Ask Marty if he liked the book.
