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

“A Neat Story”

Biko is sleeping in an abandoned house when he’s awakened mysteriously. Running from the room he encounters a man in the shadows, then he wakes again in another house and meets a mysterious woman with dangerous dark eyes. She takes him to meet an even stranger man who can disappear at will. He learns that he has been selected by a Head Lord to join the Cliff Lords in their fight to save the world. He begins training, and soon learns his super powers, then more are brought and he must train them. Something is coming against the world and human race, and they don’t have much time to prepare for the battle.

This was a neat story, though short, and we just barely touch the surface of the situation, and when it ends, we don’t know any more than we did at first. This superhero team is about to face a powerful enemy that might be stronger than they are. But what, we don’t know, and that’s a shame. We should have been given at least a quick look at what’s coming. My biggest complaint, however, is the lack of good descriptive narrative. We just see the basics of the characters, not enough to even picture them clearly. Hopefully, the author will go into more detail in description. This started out as a comic book proposal, but became a superhero prose story instead. Granted, the art would have provided most of the description, but without art the author should have dug deeper into each character. Highly recommended for comic book superhero fans.
