The Galaxy Club – The Future Fire Review

June 30, 2014

Djibril al-Ayad has reviewed The Galaxy Club over at The Future Fire.

I quote:

“Connell’s language is poetic, both in the sense that he stretches punctuation and grammar to achieve tone and voice, and that sentences or whole pages are sometimes so musical that you have to stop and re-read them out loud to be sure you heard yourself correctly inside your head.”

The Metanatural Adventures of Dr. Black

June 17, 2014

My Dr. Black book will be out soon from PS Publishing. They haven’t posted a page for it yet, for ordering, but I am sure they soon will. A good bit of the material in it was previously published elsewhere, but the book itself doesn’t indicate where or when. I have therefore decided to post this here on my blog. Mind you, the book also doesn’t have an author bio.
