The Translation of Father Torturo on Kindle

March 26, 2011

Since the e-book rights to The Translation of Father Torturo remain with me, I decided to try out a kindle version. I have also priced it low for the moment to test how well sales do at a low price.

Polycrates review

March 23, 2011

Paul Charles Smith reviews The Life of Polycrates and Other Stories for Antiquated Children at Empty Your Heart of  Its Mortal Dream. (He seems to like long names too!)

Here is a quote:

“Versatile and original, and certainly deserving to be wider read, highly recommended and a great example of the quality of the material chosen by Chomu.”

The previous two reviews of this, though mostly positive, sort of worried me as they talked a lot about how dark the book was, which actually surprised me somewhat. Paul however seems to have clicked a bit more with the humorous side of it all, which is a little closer to the way I intended some of these things to be. Not that intentions really matter to the reader (nor should they), but it is nice that at least some people can chuckle.

B.A. Campbell reviews The Life of Polycrates and Other Stories for Antiquated Children at Innsmouth Free Press.

To quote:

“…it’s impossible not to recommend a book that offers up such delicate morsels of perversity with a style so singularly lyrical and evocatively powerful as Connell offers here.”


Polycrates review

March 15, 2011

John Greenwood reviews The Life of Polycrates and other Stories for Antiquated Children at Theaker’s Quarterly and Paperback.

It is a fairly lengthy review, but here is a quote:

“It’s an epicurean tale too, which delights as much in the descriptions of feasts and of unusual dishes (e.g. fried daffodils), of the perfume of young men’s oiled fair, of the exotic specimens in Polycrates’ garden, as in the actual plot, which feels of secondary interest.”
