Darryl Sloan: Chion

February 21st, 2007 No comments

In other news, I need to get payment sent off to Darryl for his new book (sorry Darryl, I’m not very good at getting around to things like that). For anyone who might be interested, Darryl Sloan is an indi novel author who has just finished his second book. I’m happy to pay my £4.50 for the novel for two reasons. Firstly, the premise sounds both vaguely post-apocalyptic (my favourite sci-fi sub-genre) and genuinely intriguing and secondly, as I can write it off as a ‘research expense’ to get hold of a copy a ‘print on demand’ book to see what I think to the quality.

If this sounds like the sort of thing that you’re interested in check out his website.

If you’re interested in this sort of writing, read on for some more retrospective analysis and some conclusions.
