Blogging has not made me rich and famous, at least not in the traditional sense of the word. What I have gained is a great group of virtual friends. I don’t care if any of them are really real or not because they make me happy, though I suspect that some are probably figments of someone else’s imagination…
Which brings me to one of those friends, C. S. Boyack. He has a fantastic beard. See?
The facial hair alone should be enough to recommend the man. But there is more! He also likes beer, particularly pumpkin beer. He bakes sourdough bread from a bubling semisentient blob named Tituba. He camps and forages. He has a penchant for large breasted robots named Lisa, or rather they have a penchant for him…
He also writes.
Mr. Boyack was kind enough a few weeks ago to allow me read his latest book, a collection of short stories. Woohoo! It was a super fun read that I highly recommend. There is something in it for everyone, including some creepy medical stories which I particularly enjoyed:
(The artwork was done by another virtual friend, the fabulous Rachel Carrera. You have to read the book to understand the snail tie in….)
If you would like to preorder a copy at the low, low price of $0.99 (a virtual bargain) here is the link to The Experimental Notebook of C. S. Boyack. The books will be delivered on 9/15. I have already ordered mine!
Disclaimer: Am I a completely neutral party? Hell, no. Mr. Boyack is my friend. So is Ms. Carrera. But then, so are all of you!
If you read it and like it, don’t forget to leave a review on Amazon. I think Mr. Boyack would appreciate that.
