My Blog

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

“Needs Editing And Formatting”

Written in six chapters – actually, six novelettes are probably more correct. They are: Rise Part 1, Rise Part 2, Rise Part 3, Bloodline, The Body, and Shadow O’Mine. The story takes place in fictional Dawn City, a city ruled by crime lords and drug gangs. The Ghost had operated in the early days, I take it, but must return now in his sixties, as drugs and flesh peddlers are running the city once more.

The paperback edition I received didn’t have the titles on the cover, there was a lack of editing, and of formatting, plus the author writes in short sentences, and it was poorly written for all that. All of which is a shame, as the characters were fascinating and the plots pretty good. The book needs to be professionally formatted and edited, and it would help if the author took some writing courses. I think this character could be a topnotch new pulp character, if given a chance.
