"Agreed. This book was born out of my constantly being asked the same questions: Do I need to purchase ISBN's? Do I have to pay for professional quality edits? Why is cover design so expensive? and so on. Along with the how-to's within the…"

Andrew Doran at The Mountains of Madness Chapter 1

This is the complete Chapter 1 of book 1 of my Andrew Doran Series: The Statement of Andrew Doran. It's a book that's built on the premise of Indiana Jones vs Lovecraftian Monsters. It's very pulp and adventure. I hope that you enjoy it. It's written with each chapter being an episode, as it was my first attempt…See More

Great Book Review!!

Great review of my book: The Trials of Obed Marsh!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, January 12, 2013

By Miguel - See all my reviews

Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: The Trials of Obed Marsh (Kindle Edition)

Amazing. The book focus on the root of the events in Lovecraft's "Shadow Over Innsmouth", how evil slowly corrupted Captain Marsh and how the Deep Ones came to town. Loved the writing style and the narrative device of old journals. One of the…

Matthew, top of the milky way to you, and welcome to …from The Chuck-Master of Science Fiction Fantasy, romance, and mind curdling horror…

               I write sci-fi fantasy novels filled with adventure, mystery, romance, drama, horror, and plenty of comedy… It's sci-fi for every adult human to enjoy. I'm also a well-known published poet. When you have a few free moments to spare, please check out my Authors page and a few of my videos and blogs. Many of my blogs consist of free to read enjoyable sci-fi stories that I reedited and united these twenty-two stories within an eBook titled: 'Epic Marvels'. One of my recent sci-fi novels is titled: 'They!' …which is somewhat related to the 1954 sci-fi classic movie, 'Them!'. …It's gaining worldwide popularity. I've just completed my next sci-fi mystery, titled: 'The Mysteries of Fuller Park'. A fun fiction story based on the eerie satanic urban legends of Fuller Park, within Athens, Texas, or it could be any small city in the world. My next novel is titled: 'It's Not A Lovable Pet Story!' LOL... It sure isn't another lovable pet story. Its Sci-fi fantasy horror at its best for delighting my many reading fans. Also, check out my famed 'Apollo Trilogy Novels'… Thanks…

Please let me know if you'd like to become friends.

The Chuck!
