I’ve just had a couple of linked short story collections come out (these are stories linked by a connecting tale- a la The Illustrated Man.)
In fact, when I told Ray Bradbury, my mentor, “Ray, I’m stealing your idea. He said, “Great! Go out and steal some more!”
The first of these is, “Pandora’s Card Game,” A game between Chance, Luck Destiny, and Chance where every card tells a tale.
I’m thrilled to say it’s already gotten GREAT reviews! Thanks, Mom & Dad!
The second is, “The Truth of Fiction,” three friends go on a quest for THE TRUTH in a magical wood, where stories literally grow on trees. And, if shorts aren’t your thing,
(It’s also gotten great reviews.)
I’ve also just released two novels, “Electric Detective” is a Science-fiction mystery – a hard-drinking PI is hit by lighting enabling him to see into other dimensions – I really think you will like it.
The second is “Blood Prism”, Penny Dreadful meets American Gods- a literary, slightly gothic dark fantasy.
I also have a funny children’s series out – “The Adventure’s of Emily Finfeather.”
One thing all my books, including my first novel, best seller. Dirk Quigby’s Guide to the Afterlife, have in common?
All my heroes and heroines have cats, usually but not always black, always magic, and in one case a crow.
Why? Because my cats and sometimes magpies or starlings
are my co-authors.
That’s why the animals in my tales are so lifelike – and also so savant.
They’re always the heros and always rescue their “owners.”
Without them the protagonist would die, though they’d never have to clean poop off a keyboard, which does have a certain appeal.
My co authors object
to the word owners- they prefer “slaves.” It’s so much more accurate
So buy these books and keep us in tuna and worms!
Write a bestseller or we’ll phoop on your computer, actually, we’ll poop on it regardless .” No Cats or Birds were harmed in the making of this Blog. A keyboard did receive a lot of unwelcome attention however.
