Dragon of the Stars is now available for preorder on Amazon!
It will soon be available for pre-order at other book sites.
Alex has a new site to tweak interest in his soon to be released DRAGON OF THE STARS.
Go visit it. It's cool!
Which brings me to ...
DON'T YOU HATE WHEN ...
You have an idea only to find someone has had it before or right as you do?
I thought about starting a new blog for my own soon-to-be-released book,
RETURN OF THE LAST SHAMAN.
The first post went up today as well and then I visited Alex's blog.
But I am not a copycat, so that will be my only post on it. Sigh.
I have been a fan of THE WAR OF THE WORLDS ever since the LEAGUE OF FIVE days.
I even wrote a flash fiction of the WAR happening in America during the civil war.
A rag-tag group of Union soldiers and their eagle mascot, Old Abe:
That was in July of last year. Audible last month gave THE WAR OF THE WORLDS: the global dispatches as their Daily Deal.
I had been working on a novel of Samuel McCord, Nikola Tesla, Mark Twain, Winston Churchill,
and the rest of McCord's unique band, fighting the invading Martians.
I downloaded the Daily Deal, of course.
What a feast!
It was great, despite it meaning I could not go on with my novel.
In the spirit of H.G. Wells's classic tale of Martian invasion this anthology presents
some of today's leading authors' own renditions of the Martian invasion
as it might have been seen through the eyes of such notables
as Gandhi, Kipling with Kim and Mowgli fight Martians in India,
(you will be interested in how Gandhi, proponent of non-violence "fought")
Leo Tolstoy in Russia,
Henry James teamed with H.G. Wells in London,
Jules Verne and Pablo Picasso in Paris.
There were many more:
a Texas sheriff and his deputies, John Carter of Mars, Teddy Roosevelt, and Winston Churchill.
If you can afford it, give yourself a real treat and download the audio of it.
