Yippee, it’s here, Playing Havoc by Steve Morris arrived safely and is now waiting for me to pick it up as soon as possible and get started on Steve’s first novel!
Regular readers of this blog would know I am a fan of Steve’s short stories and I was just so excited to receive an email from Steve saying he would like to send me a copy of his first novel. Of course I said yes! Of course I was excited! When reading Steve’s short stories I (and many other readers) wished I could read beyond the end of the short story, get to see how the characters lived outside of the few pages they occupied. Well, now I get the chance and I can’t wait to begin!
I must thank Steve for sending me a copy of Playing Havoc – thank you, Steve!
BANG! Lights out!
Just how would we cope in an event where every electronic device on our planet was rendered useless in an instant? If all electric power, industry, basic utilities, transport and the very communications that we all take for granted were zapped in a single moment, how would life carry on? What survival skills do we have to help us rebuild life from its very foundations?
Playing Havoc, partly based on fact, partly a black comedy, describes one small British Island’s battle to maintain some normality in the chaos after a coronal mass ejection through the eyes of one man who had only recently moved there with the very intention of getting some peace. A reluctant man with enough problems of his own to deal with finds that the longer the havoc goes on, more and more of the islanders turn to him for help.
