They made it up. The book doesn't exist.

he knows that, I think. Im guessing he wants to see some fantasy that was actually written on that scale of horrible, rather than an actual book about witchaloks.

I know

I had assumed that the over the top writing style was a parody of some specific author.

I should have stated that better in my OP

not "where can i find an actual witchalock"
But
"dose any one know what writer/series they are making fun of, or is it just a parody of the genera in general"

Funny, that sounds just like something a Witchalock would say.

Anyway, if I remember correctly, the whole thing started out as sort of a joke regarding Tim Buckley ripping off Penny Arcade. Tycho was writing a story called "Epic Legends Of The Hierarchs: The Elemenstor Saga." Then L. H. Franzibald (an obvious parody of Tim Buckley) wrote the "Song of the Sorcelator" which was meant to be a poor rip-off. This all happened in the comic, not in real life.

Over time it grew and evolved, and now I think it's just meant more as a parody of bad fantasy in general like Twilight and Eragon.

Except it's So Bad it's Awesome (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Ptitlethsq3mffp09i) instead of So Bad it's Horrible (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/DarthWiki/ptitlew9bltta3dv6n). Mike & Jerry are too good for that. :smalltongue:
