So I heard back from LR today about my clone’s novel…

He’d read the previous novels, of course, so he had some idea of what to expect, but this one is… different: all that and a “burly brawl” in the post-apocalyptic ruins of Disney World! 🙂

LR told me today that he has finished reading The Madness Engine, just in time to post a review tomorrow when the book goes live — yay! He was able to compose and send email, so his brain didn’t literally explode from reading it, but it may have been a close thing. (Um… No, you don’t see what I did there. No pun at all. Move along. *shakes head*) But now it’s  finally safe to talk to him about all the death and destruction and mayhem, plus the “true love and a bit with a cat” thread — that’s what people want to read, isn’t it?

That’s the trouble with reading a book before any of your friends read it, y’know? You can’t say anything about it, because you doing want to spoil the surprise, but you really, really want to talk to someone about all your favorite characters, and bits of the plot and, and what you think (or at least hope) will happen in the sequel…

About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

  1. The post-apocalyptic ruins of Disney World sounds like a brilliant setting.
