I have published yet another book.
This book is now available on Amazon as both a paperback and as a Kindle e-book.
It is a story that I have lived with for a very long time.
It is about friendship.
It is about the challenges of friendship.
It is about friendship surviving over time even when bizarre circumstances try to get in the way.
It’s main character is a scientist/inventor, and he’s laser-focused on science, but a bit lost in the world of people. So it is also about science and technology, both the good things and the terrible things about them.
It is also, hopefully, a funny story. One of the main characters, Millis, is a pet rabbit that in a lab accident is transformed into a walking, talking rabbit-man. He proves to be a loyal friend and a very good vegetarian chef.
Now I know you might argue that rabbits shouldn’t become people. That is probably a very bad idea for a serious science fiction story. But I would argue right back that this is intended to be a humorous story, the opposite of a serious science fiction story. So it is not science fiction, but, rather, science funny.
And good science fiction probably shouldn’t have too many evil alien robots in it… or man-eating chinchillas, or self-aware computers, or ray guns that can change girls into boys and boys into girls, or invading alien frog people from another star system… and this book has all that. So don’t think of it as good science fiction. Think of it as good science funny.
Those of you who are the guardians of literature and culture in this world, before you condemn and burn this book, buy a copy and read it, to see how bad the thing you hate really is. And I hope that you will then be so outraged that you buy up a million copies of it to burn in a huge bonfire to protest the existence of this book. In fact, buy two million copies. Wouldn’t that make a marvelous book burning? Book burners everywhere would talk about it for years to come. Just saying…
Anyway, the deed is done. And now let the consequences happen however they will.
