A few folks have had a look at my book, entitled “XCRATH !” ! Isn’t that nice ?
It’s a Science-Fiction novel, based on XENON’s anaesthetic properties.
The hooker is that Xenon is in high atmospheric concentration on man’s new planet. ***
It’s the chronicle of space exploration by a multinational crew, with Alien contact, Action, Ecology, Psychology, Philosophy and Medical Humour.
It is an easily readable 264 pages, including a glossary of names and Xcrath – English translations.
It just occurred to me – if you are interested in a 258-page SciFI novel with “how to exceed the speed of light” ideas, in which nobody dies and there’s a happy ending, do get it ………………..
it’s quite well written and slightly humorous ……………………..
I quite like it !
The only thing is that originally I wanted a Canadian publisher (“be Canadian: buy Canadian ! !”),
so I contracted it out to Trafford, a company in BC, with sales through Amazon.Ca.
Unfortunately the quality of the paperback was disappointing and I couldn’t get Trafford to change it at a reasonable cost.
Amazon.Com agreed to produce it through their “create space” site.
The CreateSpace (Amazon.com) product is MUCH better looking, printed on better paper and cheaper, to boot.
So get your XCRATH ! from Amazon.com, not Amazon.Ca .
Have fun reading !
