The Variant Effect
The old furrier building in a rundown part of Metro was the perfect place to find a body, and Joe Borland knew they wouldn’t have dragged him out of retirement to see it if something hadn’t eaten its skin. It’s been twenty years since Borland battled the Variant Effect, and twenty since he let his partner get skinned alive. Now both of them are ordered back into action to meet the new threat.
Meet Nick Stone. The highlight of Nick’s day had always been smoking Jane, drinking beer, and causing trouble. Usually all at the same time. But that all changed when Dad woke up with a dead stripper in his bed. This story promises to offend you, insult you and entertain you, all at the same time. In Odd-Jobs, the author holds blatant contempt for literary merit, and the result comes off a little like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
In a slightly alternate world the minds of teen offenders are uploaded into computers for rehabilitation — a form of virtual wilderness therapy. Zach is a homo cognoscens, one of the new humans with startling but as yet poorly understood cognitive abilities who can enter the virtual Fulgrid. Though still a high school student, he is indentured to the Fulgur Corporation as a counsellor. Laura is a homo sapiens. They meet and fall in love across barriers of fear and hatred, exacerbated by Zach’s growing involvement with an underground political movement. There is some mystery as to the fate of his parents, while Laura’s dad is a prominent neuroscientist with the Fulgur Corporation. Lines of loyalty are difficult to untangle, particularly because both have suffered a certain measure of emotional trauma in their early lives. From the very first chapters there is a sense of impending tragedy.
Easier For A Camel
Easier for a camel is a mystery novel based on the author’s experiences in South Africa. The events were so strange that few people would believe them. When presented as fact, the author’s wife said, ‘You missed your vocation, you should have been a writer of fiction.’ Rewritten as fiction and presented to her as such, she said, ‘The trouble with it is it is not fiction, it’s revenge.’ This version is a mixture of fact and fiction, mostly the latter. The reader may distinguish between the two, bearing in mind that fact is stranger than fiction. It is a Christian novel that shows up much of the sham in conventional Christianity.

Perhaps man may be more properly distinguished as an idle animal; for there is no man who is not sometimes idle. It is at least a definition from which none that shall find it in this paper can be excepted; for who can be more idle than the reader of the Idler?
