The Totally True Adventures of Gustav Gustavson: Legendary Viking Warrior - Audiobook Cover

A Feast For Your Ears

My first ever audiobook came out today and is available through Audible, Amazon, and iTunes! It’s narrated by the incredible Basil Sands who did a masterful job at bringing my story to life. Basil’s character voices will immerse you in the story and keep you laughing all the way to the end. You can listen to a free sample at Audible. Blurb: Experience the awesomeness of my unexpected voyage to an undiscovered land where I survive shipwrecks, arena death match spectacles,...

5d6 by Robert Bevan - Book Review by Morgan Hobbes

Book Review | 4 Shorts by Robert Bevan

Four short stories I’ve been waiting to read finally made it into Kindle Unlimited. I grabbed all of them as part of Robert Bevan’s 5D6 release where he rolls up 6 shorts into one book (the first two reviewed here). As usual, Mister Bevan proves himself the master of low brow humour. In these final four he delivers an astounding array of disgusting and hilarious scenarios for our hapless heroes to fight their way out of. Tossing the Salaad –...

The Fantastic Fable of Peter Able by Natalie Grigson

Book Review | The Fantastic Fable of Peter Able by Natalie Grigson

It’s tough being a fictional character. Peter, a now adult Boy Wizard, has been abandoned by his writer and left to fend for himself in the land of fiction. The Fantastic Fable of Peter Able by Natalie Grigson showed up during my Kindle Scout campaign as a previous winner. I enjoy tales of characters left behind so was keen to check this one out. Peter and his pals in this one, the cast of NPCs by Drew Hayes and so...

Flash Fiction | Maze Quest (A Text-Adventure Short Story)

A short story this time (just shy of 5,000 words) from a Reddit Writing Prompt. Written as 2nd person (a perspective I rarely read and up to now haven’t written in)… but it suited the “game” theme as many old point-and-click and text-adventure type games would employ this style. It’s written as if they’re scenes in a game. The Prompt: [WP] You are the protagonist of a point-and-click game. The Story: Maze Quest Standing South of the Mansion You are standing...

Frogkisser! by Garth Nix

Book Review | Frogkisser! by Garth Nix

This one snuck onto my list when I was about to begin reading something entirely different. It popped up in my GoodReads list as an “also read”, and the cover and title intrigued me enough I had to check it out. It looked fun, and I enjoyed the sample so grabbed myself a copy and got stuck into reading it. Frogkisser! by Garth Nix is a fun tale full of re-imagined versions of your typical fairy-tale happenings such as princesses stuck with...

Book Review | The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

Sometimes poking around random GoodReads lists pays off big time. That’s certainly the case with this one – The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig. I grabbed the sample chapters from Amazon and knew right off it was one I’d lose myself in, and after I bought the full story, I found I was right. A time-travelling pirate ship? Count me in right there. But there was so much more to love about this novel. Lost love, adventures through time,...

NPCs by Drew Hayes

Book Review | NPCs by Drew Hayes

Between the books in this series (Spells, Swords, & Stealth), the Caverns and Creatures series by Robert Bevan, and the Authors and Dragons podcast, I’ve learned everything I know about the D&D universe (and the similar but legally distinct worlds portrayed in these novels). 🙂 I mostly became aware of the works of Drew Hayes after listening to the Authors and Dragons podcast. At the time I was only familiar with works by Robert Bevan and Rob Kroese, but since...

Far Into The Dark by Steve Wetherell

Book Review | Far Into The Dark by Steve Wetherell

Regular visitors may notice I’ve reviewed a lot of books by Steve Wetherell, and the reason I guess should be obvious. I’m a huge fan of the books he puts out! A few days ago I bought this one, Far Into The Dark, after being reminded of it through a Facebook post. Mister Wetherell was sharing the new cover art for Far Into The Dark (previously titled “Into The Black”, but renamed to separate it from a bunch of others of the...

Book Review | Shoot The Dead by Steve Wetherell

I could not put this one down. Metaphorically of course, because since buying it I’ve slept and ate and whatnot, but let’s not let trivial things like that get in the way of good hyperbole. So to backtrack a little, I bought a copy of Shoot the Dead by Steve Wetherell yesterday, and read 80%* of it in one go, then finished it this morning. I’ve mentioned recently in other reviews I’m not one who really likes to go and read...

Book Review | Agents of the Internet Apocalypse by Wayne Gladstone

Agents of the Internet Apocalypse is the second book of the Internet Apocalypse trilogy by Wayne Gladstone, so if you haven’t read the first one (Notes from the Internet Apocalypse) you really should. While you probably could get away without reading it, you really should read it first. Two reasons: It’s also a really good book, and Book 2 will make a little more sense. Agents of the Internet Apocalypse starts a few months after the end of book 1...
