Joe Reviews His Own Book…

Joe Who?

Joe Who?

Apparently, according to Goodreads, it’s okay to review your own book. So here goes… a completely impartial, unbiased book review for my science fiction/fantasy time travel adventure A Time and a Place.

Let’s start with what this book is about. And I’d say it’s about two or three pounds. This is a book with some serious heft. You put this book on something it’s not going anywhere. There are a lot of pages, four hundred and three of them. If you like your book with pages, you’re gonna like this book, pages and pages of pages.

And there are words, folks. Big words, little words, and middle sized words that are juuuust right. We’re talking nouns, verbs, adjectives, indefinite articles, lightly seasoned with adverbs. But not too many adverbs. This isn’t JK Rowling we’re talking about here, who can get away with that sort of thing.

What do you get for your money? This book comes fully loaded with an index, chapter headings, acknowledgements, authors bio, there are even page numbers. And make sure you check out the font. It’s called a dirty font. But don’t let that put you off, this is a clean book. There are no bad words as this really is a book for people of all ages, young and old alike. Unless you’re 72, this book is not recommended for people 72 years old. But once you’re 73 you should be good to go.

Know that this book is only available in select bookstores because, let’s face it, not all bookstores can handle a book of this calibre. This is a book to be, if not read, at least purchased and placed on a book shelf of your choice with the spine facing out because it doesn’t make any sense to have the spine facing in.

Highly recommended, six out of five stars for this truly superlative effort in this completely unbiased book review of my own book.

Get it today while supplies last, there are only so many electronic editions out there.

The Best Time Travel Book You Haven’t Read Yet

Cover Art for A Time and a Place by Jeff Minkevics

Mahoney’s work is great for those who like their speculative fiction thoughtful, eloquent, and messy.
Publisher’s Weekly

Barnabus’s nephew is behaving oddly.

Calling upon Doctor Humphrey for assistance has not been particularly helpful, because the good doctor’s diagnosis of demonic possession is clearly preposterous. Even the demon currently ensconced on the front room couch agrees it’s preposterous. But then, how else to explain the portal to another world through which his nephew and Humphrey have just now disappeared? Barnabus knows their only chance of rescue is for Barnabus J. Wildebear himself to step up and go through that portal.

Thus begins an existential romp across space and time, trampling on Barnabus’ assumptions about causality, freewill, identity, good and evil. Can Barnabus save his nephew—and incidentally, all of humanity?

A Time and a Place published by Five Rivers Press.

“I greatly enjoyed the chapters in which our time and dimension travelling hero finds himself in the body of an alien, purple-furred cat with opposable thumbs and then a seagull.”
