Pay Me, Bug! - Christopher B. Wright

I really like this chapter heading:

"WHEREIN Our Hero, Axe in Hand, Discovers the Forest Brought Guns. Many, Many Guns."

The chapter headings for 1 & 2 were (in order):

"WHEREIN the Woods, Noting Our Hero's Sudden Departure, Resolve to Give Chase"


"WHEREIN Our Hero, Noting the Woods' Triumphant Return, Desperately Casts About for an Axe"


This is a space opera, not a fantasy, but I'm apparently easily amused.


And that's not the cover I have for my ebook copy, but this appears to be the right ISBN. I originally got this in a bundle a couple of years ago.
