Author of the Year

Thanks to @patkelleher via @danrebellato, I have discovered the awesome literary powers of Dale M. Courtney. 

I present for your consideration the author's own description for his epic space opera 'Moon People'.

Did you like it? It's real good, isn't it? Would you like to know more of the continuing adventures of David Braymer?

Well, don't worry. He's only written a bloody sequel in which Commander Braymer does "a genesis on Mars that turns out surprisingly good". It's his 'Godfather II'.

But Mr. Courtney is not only a visionary, he has the ear of the President and was responsible for the release of the British sailors held hostage by Iran a few years ago. Well, according to his biography.

The 'Moon People' novels appear to be two parts of a trilogy. But if you can't wait for 'Moon People 3' (as I presume it will be titled), the man has a blog in which he bangs on about some guy called Ben Laden (who I presume is someone he works with and steals his sandwiches?)

I'm just praying that this guy isn't the same Dale M. Courtney who's a nuclear engineer in the US Navy, or we're all royally fucked.

I'm going to hell, aren't I?


  1. Want to share a handcart?

    That is, indeed, truly appalling.

  2. There's plenty of room on board!

    I must admit to not having laughed so much in a long time.

    "Cheral's preparing her restaurant for another Shuttle launch at the cape and everyone always gathers at her place because you can see the launch real good at her place."

    Now, John Updike's dead, is the position for "American's Greatest Living Novelist" available?

  3. Awesome. I do enjoy reading books which are 'action pact' and which give very specific measurements about the buildings within.

  4. He also took two and a half years to make a "Collage". Must have got through a lot of magazines.
