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,...

Book Review | Hell’s Titties by Robert Bevan and Steve Wetherell

Book Review | Hell’s Titties by Robert Bevan and Steve Wetherell

Whaaaat? A  collaboration between two of my favourite authors – Robert Bevan and Steve Wetherell? Shut Up and Take My Money! Or more accurately shut up and take my Kindle Unlimited payment in about 8 week’s time. But still, how could I resist. Hell’s Titties, a small town nestled between the “twin peaks” of East and West Tittie in the Appalachian Mountains, is the unwitting town sitting atop an ancient evil. The Blurb: Nestled between two peaks in the foothills...

They Fight Three Giants

Book Review | 2 Shorts by Robert Bevan

Robert Bevan is an author I’ve been reading for years now. His Critical Failures books in the Caverns and Creatures series are some of the most re-read books on my Kindle. Between each Critical Failures books he puts out 6 short stories which eventually get bundled into their own six-pack. These are the most recent two which I read one after another (I was behind a little since it took a few weeks for them to get onto Kindle Unlimited)....

Goddamned Freaky Monsters by Rick Gualtieri

Book Review | Goddamned Freaky Monsters by Rick Gualtieri

I should preface this review with a <POSSIBLE SPOILERS> warning since Goddamned Freaky Monsters is book 5 in The Tome of Bill series. If you’ve not read the first four, maybe look away now. After reading the first 4 books in quick succession I decided a short break was in order before continuing with the series. That short break turned into 6 months as other books kept demanding my attention. But finally I’m back on the Bill train, having finished...

Book Review | Critical Failures V by Robert Bevan

Robert Bevan is someone I’ve been reading for a long time now, getting into his books a few years back and reading them all multiple times. His latest book in the series, Critical Failures V, has left me a little on the fence. While each book in the series so far has followed the standard formula of problem at start -> solved at end + new cliff-hanger (introduced to keep you wanting the next one), this one meandered along without much urgency...

The Amateurs by John Niven

Book Review | The Amateurs by John Niven

While on my search for a new book to read I came across an oldie but goodie that I’ve read countless times – The Amateurs by John Niven. If I was to make a list of the all-time funniest books I’ve ever read, this’d be very high on the list. I bought this way back in 2009 (I think?) after reading the blurb and knowing it was for me. This was back when I still bought paperbacks, so I even imported...

Dinosaurs and Prime Numbers by Tom Moran

Book Review | Dinosaurs and Prime Numbers by Tom Moran

Another suggestion by Goodreads and another home run. My profile over there is obviously tweaked to perfection because it’s been recommending a lot of winners recently, and Dinosaurs and Prime Numbers by Tom Moran was no exception. If you were to merge Arthur Dent with Mister Bean and add them to a Sherlock Holmes mystery, you’d get something similar to this book. Walton Cumberfield is a character you can’t help but laugh at and with as he struggles on through...

A Matter of Scale by Jonathon Burgess

Book Review | A Matter of Scale by Jonathon Burgess

I happened across this short story by Jonathon Burgess after an email from instaFreebie. It’s a fun short story you can read entirely on your lunchbreak (as I did) and is an great introduction (possibly a prologue?) for future novels. The author lists is as the first in a series called The Blackscale Chronicles, which I’ll be interested in reading once they’re published. A Matter of Scale is not available (at time of writing) from Amazon, but you can get it for free...

To Cure The Humans by Douglas Lewis

Book Review | To Cure The Humans by Douglas Lewis

To Cure the Humans by Douglas Lewis popped up on Goodreads as a suggestion for something I might like. I’ve said it before, but the machines are getting closer to taking over, because they were spot on. I did like it! The story is well paced and filled with a cast of well-developed characters, this rather long novel (456 pages) kept me entertained from beginning to end. It’s funny without trying too hard (for the most part). The length took me...

Gordan of Riss and the Malformed Sprite by Ryan Drake

Book Review | Gordan of Riss and the Malformed Sprite by Ryan Drake

Before last week I hadn’t heard of Ryan Drake, possibly because his first book – Gordan of Riss and the Malformed Sprite – was only published a little over a month ago. He came to my attention by combining a giveaway with some of my favourite authors (Robert Bevan, Steve Wetherell) plus others I haven’t yet read. Not being one to pass up a freebie or a bargain, I grabbed the sample and checked it out. In short: I was...
