Waiting For Hamlet

By David Visick
A fool who knows he's a fool, and a fool who doesn't.
A King seeks revenge on his wicked brother, who has stolen both his kingdom
and his wife. Exiled with his old mate Yorick, he's banking on the help of his son,
Hamlet, to restore his crown. But there's just one problem - the King and his fool
are dead. Languishing in Limbo, they have to decide whether to act, or to take it
lying down.
Because life's not a question of being or not being. It's much more complicated
than that.
Hamlet: The Prequel? What could possibly go wrong...
