Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at firstname.lastname@example.org

I guess I’ve known Gail McAbee for a couple decades now. She wrote for our FADING SHADOWS magazines in the ‘90s, and later was the head editor for Novel Books, Inc. (NBI), and was instrumental in three of my books being published by NBI. Due to our friendship we never lost contact, even after NBI and FADING SHADOWS ceased publication. Early on I read her novels, “A Fine Impersonation” and “Escape The Past”, as well as her science fiction anthology created for Mystic Toad Press, “Port Nowhere”. While with Mystic Toad Press, she published my wife’s pulp anthology, “Tales of Masks & Mayhem V #1”. She is my strongest influence, and if not for her, I would still be an unpublished author.
