“Hardboiled Adventure” describes Randy Nargi’s two series: The Land of Enchantment (science-based thrillers) and The Further Adventures of Bander (epic fantasy for people who don’t like fantasy). Both series combine pulse-pounding pacing with tough-as-nails heroes in fast-paced adventures reminiscent of the early days of pulp fiction.

"This is a great new series. I've read Books 1 & 2 now and can't wait for more. This is a truly fresh, inventive story with great characters and tons of action set in a cool, highly-detailed new world. The mystery at the heart of "Bander" hooks you right out of the gate, develops quickly and never lets go-- though I found myself wanting to pause to ponder some of the incredibly intriguing technologies, weapons and environments introduced along the way. A great ride. Definitely start with Book 1 and enjoy." —Kenneth G. Bennett, author of The Gaia Wars
"G-SALE embarks on its mission with such persuasive, PBS-documentary artlessness, it's a shame to tip you off beforehand that the movie isn't a documentary at all. Like a spinoff of "Antiques Roadshow," the film leads us gently up a cozy American byway into the world of garage sales and the habitues who live for, in and by them... Deftly as the cast embodies its specific and collective daftness, the film was written, very smartly, by Randy Nargi, who also directed." —Richard T. Jameson, former editor: Film Comment
“An intriguing tale of mystery and monsters in the Land of Enchantment... I'm hooked already!” —Benjamin Radford, author of Tracking the Chupacabra
