Re: This is the News

Very true. The media always cast the first stones and then when tragedy stikes all is forgotten and it's 'let us mourn this exceptionally perfect human being'.

He was a musical legend, but had...

Re: Michael Jackson Dies

Aye bit of a shocker that. 50 isn't very old to die. He was a massive music talent, but seriously disturbed in many ways. The real geniuses usually are the ones with the most demons.

Re: The King of America - Rod Glenn

lol yes, but it's no biggie. Full name is Rodney Deryk Glenn. Yes, it was hard growing up in the shadow of Only Fools and Horses!

Re: The King of America - Rod Glenn

Thanks for your kind words, Ang. I try to stay positive about everything and take any critisism in the spirit in which it was intended. Without honest critisism, no artist can improve, so it should...

Re: The King of America - Rod Glenn

Third, I agree that The Road is excellent. And they do indeed come across the unknown boy earlier in the story, but I still think the ending suspends belief a little too much. But having said that it...

The bit that was supposed to leave no doubt was the last sentence of that scene -
The man-made illuminations dissolved into the horizon and Explorer was left, once again, alone on the dark open...

No, that's a fair point, beer. I asked a Spanish colleague who is living in the UK to help with a few words. What it was meant to suggest was that English as a single language had become more...

Re: The King of America - Rod Glenn

Ship based radar is fairly limited unless it has the added assistance of satellite and AWACS, so you're right you don't know much about ship to ship warfare. By the time the frigate came about after...

Re: The King of America - Rod Glenn

The General is about a specific person. A general could be anyone. Look online or in a few books - some choose 'The General', some choose 'the general', but all stick with 'a general'.

Re: The King of America - Rod Glenn

'a captain' or 'a king' is correct as is 'the Captain' and 'the King' - this is what I said in my previous post, so I am being consistent all the way through.

I was told to best avoid confusion...

So difficult to see where to begin with this. Thank you for reading and for taking the time to write your inevitibly scathing review.

I'll try to pick up on as many points as I can.

Re: Rod Glenn: Sinema - The Northumberland Massacre

You got it at a good price! The first edition was an earlier incarnation that I wasn't overly satisfied with. The Epic Edition is revamped and has an extended ending along with some additional...

Re: Rod Glenn: Sinema - The Northumberland Massacre

I assume that will be the original version rather than the new Epic Edition then? If that's the case, drop me an email with confirmation of the eBay win and I will send you a copy of Epic Edition...

Re: Rod Glenn: Sinema - The Northumberland Massacre

Junk, some people do prefer to visualise every detail of a character in a book - I know I do. The characters come more alive to me if I can visualise them physically. I find it easier to place them...

Re: Rod Glenn: Sinema - The Northumberland Massacre

You make a very good point, Ang. The point is that just because one reader loves a book it doesn't mean that everyone will and visa versa. Tastes vary massively not only in types of story, but also...

Re: Sinema: The Northumberland Massacre, Rod Glenn

Actually Stu, this is your original post. The darker side of fiction is the tagline for Wild Wolf Publishing and you suggested that it be changed to the grimmer side of fiction. That sounded like a...

No, it's definitely a greenish-brown with more emphasis on the brown of course.

It's a fair point, John. I hope that my writing has significantly improved since KOA. The feedback I'm getting from readers certainly points to that and it is especially true of readers who have...
