Seriously, when you're a freelancer working towards deadline, it can't exist. Normally, when I'm moving through treacle, I use a technique of whacking down any old rubbish. The next day, I tend to find that 50% of the time it was actually fine, and the other 50% of the time it's repairable. I'd much rather have a block of text that needs improvement rather than a blank screen.(less)

The Last Days of Thunder Child by C. A. Powell
"I won this book through Goodreads. Really enjoyed this book. Exciting and original. Fast paced and fun"
The Last Days of Thunder Child by C. A. Powell
"My favorite part of the Original Novel was the encounter between Thunder Child and the three Tripods. This novel expands that...thank you."
The Last Days of Thunder Child by C. A. Powell
"An excellent novel that's as much nautical fiction as science fiction. I have to say that author has a real grasp of how to write in both genres. I'd strongly encourage him/her to write more nautical fiction -- sci-fi or not."

“The 3 types of terror: The Gross-out: the sight of a severed head tumbling down a flight of stairs, it's when the lights go out and something green and slimy splatters against your arm. The Horror: the unnatural, spiders the size of bears, the dead waking up and walking around, it's when the lights go out and something with claws grabs you by the arm. And the last and worse one: Terror, when you come home and notice everything you own had been taken away and replaced by an exact substitute. It's when the lights go out and you feel something behind you, you hear it, you feel its breath against your ear, but when you turn around, there's nothing there...”
