This week on Amazon

Day 74. 244 pages, 122,358 words.

“From what I gathered, this is the middle book of the series. This entry has an almost Empire Strikes Back feel to it, in the most abstract sense possible i guess. You could say Bunzo’s was the Death Star of the last book, but now the Rebellion (heh) is starting to face some real turbulence. Character (and species) development, as always, is superb, and one relatively new character in particular truly makes the book. This entry was also just as funny as the first three, with liberal, clever dosages of wit and humor. It is also the most mysterious of the books, and leaves a lot of stuff unanswered but teased. Overall an amazing entry in the Final Fall of Man series. Andrew Hindle really knows how to craft a story and a sci-fi universe, and I can’t believe his books are still free for Kindle. The hype will catch on I am sure.”

The reviewer jod, on Amazon, has been kind enough to give me my first review of Fergunakil, and I’m glad it was a good one. Always gives me a boost.

My week-long free give-away of Eejit is over, now we just have to wait and see how that trickles through to reviews and sales. In a couple of weeks I will probably discount Drednanth to see what happens.

I always appreciate a boost, because I’m a delicate petal – although of course my books aren’t all free on Kindle, all the time. But as often as necessary and possible, yes. And here’s to hoping the hype will catch on. Because I think Molran is shaping up to be another good instalment – maybe the best one yet. We’re entering end-game now, people.

Anyway, I’m travelling to the customer site today so this is all I have time for. Stupid driving.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

    I kind of like the idea of Fergunakil as my Empire, too.

    I have slacked off. I am ashamed. Great review though!
