Some Thoughts on Letters I Wish I Had Sent:
Finally someone is speaking out for the rest of us in a series of letters to all of those companies and bureaucrats who add a level of annoyance to our lives that just isn’t appreciated as much as they may think. Randall hits the biggest offenders, from airport security gropers to the e-mail spammers in Africa desperate to give you boatloads of cash (just send them your bank account number with all of your other personal information).

An alien invasion force realizes its worst nightmare when supernatural pop culture runs amuck on Earth in Alien Invasion of the Zombie Apocalypse by Ford Forkum; an Amazon and Goodreads average rating of 4.6 stars.
A Little About Alien Invasion of the Zombie Apocalypse – A short story loaded with laughs, the perfect break from paranormal…
An alien race with far more sophisticated science and intelligence (debatable) has forever altered the future of Earth with the spin of a wheel and a quick trip across the galaxy.

This was my book of the decade and a fantastic gift from my wife. I read it while on deployment in Afghanistan so the humour worked wonders for my morale. One of the wittiest fiction reads I’ve ever experienced; fast-paced and impossible to put down. Read the rest of this entry »

Terry Pratchett stakes his claim to being the funnyman of science fiction in the Color of Magic, book one in the Disc-world series. He grabs you from the first page with his uncanny wit and his character’s humorous banter and keeps you chuckling to the very end of the story. You’ve likely seen similar characters from other books, television and movies but Pratchett takes the classic comedy duo and firmly plants them in a fantasy world that is over the top hilarious.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Real and raw, this story isn’t for the thin-skinned or prudish sort. Malice in Blunderland is laden with adult situations and language that may offend some, but if you like your humor gritty then you will appreciate Jonny Gibbings fictional first-hand account of a life gone horribly wrong and getting worse over the span of a few days.
