Following up on Crashed America going ‘Pick Your Price’ this week it’s Space FM’s turn. You can grab your copy over here. As ever one of the prices you can pick is zero but I’ll re-post last weeks call for support below just to prod at your sense of human decency, should you happen to have one. Anyway, enjoy!
(Short Story) Hurtled an unknown distance into the black abyss of space? Crash landed on an unknown planet? Are the locals caught up in the midst of a schizophrenic Armageddon? Do they make your old life of Elvis impersonators and being a crash dummy for space ships seem normal by comparison? Then this is the book for you.
And if none of the above apply then this is still the book for you, because you never know what’s around the corner.
Space FM is a pint sized hit of strange Sci Fi from Dylan Malik Orchard, author of ‘Laikanist Times’ and ‘Crashed America’. Both (possibly) seminal masterpieces enjoyed by millions and revered by more. Ranging through Absurdism, space, the surreal and a mini-Rat Pack it’s everything you want – no, everything you need – to get by.
It goes without saying – although I’m going to say it anyway – that any support you can offer is very welcome. I’m happy to share my work for free because I believe that everyone should have access to art and culture and I’d far rather see it read by a lot of people for nothing than by a handful of people for a few pounds in my pocket. That said though writing a book, any book, is a lot of work and while the internet can make things like writing, music and film seem like they spring out of nothing for your enjoyment there’s a lot of effort and a lot of hours invested in doing what I (and musicians, film makers, artists etc) do. So if you enjoy it please do consider offering your support in one way or another. Obviously as you can choose your price there are options other than but if you’re not in a position to spend some money, or you just flat out don’t want to, then the next best thing is to post a review on a site like Amazon or Goodreads, or even here on the product page. It’s also very much appreciated if you share it on any of your social networks or just prod a friend to grab their own copy. Sure, even just signing up to my mailing list and keeping an eye open for new stuff means a lot and makes doing what I do a lot easier. There are also other books by me which you can straight up pay for if you’re willing.
The internet, at it’s best, is a massive ocean of good, easily accessible culture, art, communication and information – the only way it stays that way though is by each of us working to support it.
