But what I love most is, that amidst all the crazy stuff, Mallory is still a rather ruthless man, punishing and getting rid of anybody who betrays him or hurts his friends and without remorse too. Thanks to Mallory's personality, the book feels grounded, not just... out there.

John Justin Mallory is just plain human without an idea this whole other fairy world exists parallel with ours until he gets hired to track down a unicorn.
There is a big awfully bad guy, and a lot of whimsy and fun with a mystery to be solved.
I read a lot, and so some books I judge by how well I remember them, this one, I read when it first came out, as well as a short story set in the same world in an anthology. I always hoped for sequels and now there are some finally.
If you like Harry Dresden, give Mallory a try. It's a fun, light read.
Resnick is a great award-winning author. He's been writing forever and has hundreds of books to his name, and anyone starting out reading Stalking the Unicorn can see why. After the first chapter I was excited and anxious for more. But once Resnick took us out of the real world and into his fantasy world, things started to go astray.
I liked some of the humor sprinkled throughout the story, but much of it seemed forced, as if Resnick were trying to be funny instead of being funny. But the bigger problem was his "trying" to create a world that was absurd. His world was absurd, all right, but not in a good way. It felt to me--and to my wife, who quit reading about halfway through--as if Resnick were searching his imagination, looking for the most absurd elements he could find, whether or not they had any point being in the story.
As I said before, Mike Resnick must be a good author. I am guessing he has hundreds of books that are a joy to read. If so, I recommend you try one of those. This cannot possibly be his best work.
