THE YELLOW TOWER.

Sample, synopsis

These three books weigh in at 180,000words in total and chart Hadrim's quest for vengeance to the Tower. Sounds like the usual stuff. WRONG! There are no elves dwarves or cuddly furry creatures in this and Hadrim doesn't even have a magic sword. Take a look at this somewhat dated reader's report.

 

THE INFINITE WILLOWS SERIES:

CREATURES OF THE STAFF

Sample

(80,000words). Well, we've had the war and now we get the fallout. It's sometimes worse. I'd reckon on about another 160,000 words worse. Heh.

 

CONTEMPORARY

FROG WINE

Sample

(80,000 words) What would you do if you found a suitcase full of money under a hedge, still connected to the corpse of its owner? Of course; you'd take it straight into a police station wouldn't you? Nailer has to face this problem. Maybe he'll overcome, with the assistance of his wood chipper and rotovator.
