Pharoni by Colin Dodds
"*Received an advance copy for review*

Pharoni is a wonderful fresh take on the sci fi/dystopian genre that keeps you guessing what it going to happen throughout the whole novel. Wacky, and written like a screenplay; Dodds has written a must read for f" Read more of this review »

Pharoni by Colin Dodds
"This book, for me, was a curious read. It made me think on many levels and I am hoping that this is what Colin Dodds had in mind when he wrote it.

Told in the first person, our narrator is Tommy Pharoni who relates to us the development of his life, " Read more of this review »

Quotes by Colin Dodds  (?)

“it may sound strange, but I think atheists are the most religious people in the world.”
Colin Dodds, Windfall

“I think atheists are the most religious people in the world. They say they want to do away with God, make a more rational world with science. But that’s only another way of saying they want to build a better God—one based on repeatable tests—an inescapable God named Reality. It’s the same unseemly monotheistic impulse to tighten the net that’s driven the wheel of murder for the last two thousand or so years. Deviate from the Trinity and you’re a heretic and you get burned at the stake. But fail to bow and scrape before Reality and, oh shit, you’re a lunatic.”
Colin Dodds, Windfall

“It’s the million-dollar question: How do you get between someone and their self-destruction?”
Colin Dodds, Another Broken Wizard
