Laikanist Times is the story of one planet divided by a few million years and a fistful of species divides. While the Bald Chimps are seeing apparitions and finding God (or possibly Dog) the dogs are indulging in some quantum meddling and the humans? Well, they had their time.
Well, it’s taken 6 years to get here but here we are. Laikanist Times Book Two is finished and available for purchase.
Book one was my first real attempt to actually get my writing out there. Written in a fug on one of my first trips to the United States it was a frenzied, joyous abandonment of common sense and literary credibility. Scrawled down in basements and bars across the continent, it was a testament to the revelatory experience of writing what you like and liking what you write, guileless and unplanned. An experience that I’ve only really captured since when I started drawing for the first time, recapturing that child like glee of creating stuff without caring who saw or expecting anything from it. But finishing off Book Two was a pretty goddamn close thing.
A few people liked my first effort, plenty more probably didn’t, but who cares eh? Certainly not me, because I’m back once again with a follow up and with book three waiting in the wings too. Although given my natural love of procrastination we might be another six years from any kind of resolution there. But at any rate, you can buy Book Two here. And, for now, you can download the first one for free above. A promotion I’ll probably cut off by the end of the month. If you like it, share it, on social media or Goodreads or wherever else. I’ve made the choice to abandon Amazon for Book Two because, frankly, fuck ’em, and it’ll be available solely through my site. Which of course means that no one’s likely to see it unless they hear about it from you. Which is fine by me, I’ve a lot more trust in people sharing what they like than my work ever proving commercially viable enough to be given a platform. And maybe rightly so, who am I to judge? Anyway, grab your free download and enjoy.
