...truth be told, "He has form." 

Chris Roberts, that is. He's made a few well-respected games in his time. But he has time-management issues. Sure, he's a stickler for detail, like the badges on uniforms or the embossed detail on his ship skins but... can he do it? Can he get this hulking behemoth he's created out the door without a Controlling Interest Rebellion?

The answer is NO... nobody can, b

Hertzan Chimera "NEWS FLASH", my second novel in the 'free planet' trilogy LIBERATOR is finished, first draft. I'll spend the next few weeks (or so) tidying it up, rewriting, chopping, changing and otherwise perfecting prior to publication.

http://freeplanetnovel.blogspot.com for all the details

Dale Thele Mike, thanx for accepting my friend request :)

message 33: by Hertzan

Hertzan Chimera the brand new book trailers for Mike Philbin's 2013 Chimericana Books horror sci-fi titles "Custodian" and "Tandem" are up now, check them out.

message 31: by Mark

Mark McLaughlin More people need to read the stories of Mike Philbin! It's been a while since I've read his work, and I really MUST and WILL make up for lost time! He is an ORIGINAL THINKER and a wild blend of delightful contradictions. Some may find his work objectionable ... but then, some people think eating octopi would be objectionable. Properly and lovingly prepared, calimari is a gourmet's treat, a strange delicacy! Mike Philbin is truly adroit at serving up strange delicacies. So dig in, world! :-)

Eric Birk Thanks for becoming my Goodreads friend.

Byron  'Giggsy' Paul Perhaps the only man more insane than Mike Philbin, is Hertzan Chimera!

message 27: by Hertzan

Hertzan Chimera I've just added the FIRST CHAPTER of my latest novel that's destined for a 2013 release, called FREE PLANET to my GoodReads writing page.

Here's the link to the exclusive content.

message 26: by Hertzan

Hertzan Chimera PS: if you look at the scores my books/publications are receiving, you'll see the same names again and again 1*ing everything I've written or edited.

Now, maybe I'm just being stupid here but, if you've disliked a book so much that you 1* it, would you SERIOUSLY go through and read ALL MY OTHER BOOKS to 1* them? You suspect that they've 'never read a word' of my books? Me, too.

I've tried bringing this targeted activity up with Goodreads/Admins but they say they can Do Nothing.

Hertzan Chimera I've linked my "Free Planet" blog's RSS to this Profile -- hope you're all reading it.

Christine Hi Mike,just dropping by for a visit. I would like to invite you to check out Shadow Forrest Authors for charity and help support illiteracy issues.
We also have a SFA group here on goodreads. Have a great week.

message 22: by Hertzan

Hertzan Chimera well, nothing recent, my next new project will be the publication of Chimeraworld 6 (new world disorder) at the end of the year. It's gonna be a corkin' addition to the Chimeraworld lineage. One thing, I renamed an as yet unpublished novel Chimeratown, in honour of my dead writing persona Hertzan Chimera. LOL.

Christine Hi Mike, stopped by to see what's new on your page. Have a great week.

Lincoln Hi Mike!

I don't get to Goodreads nearly as often as I'd like because I'm writing my 4th book. So, I wanted to make sure and stop by and let you know that I am thrilled to be your friend here! Are you on twitter? My twitter name is: linc0lnpark

Have a fantastic day!


Christine Hi Mike, stopped by to see what's new with you. Have a great week.

Roger Cottrell Hi Mike,
As I write this e-mail I am staring at a drawing of Giger's ALIEN on my office wall and thinking about what George Orwell wrote regarding Salvadore Dali.
I also think David Cronenberg is brilliant - from Scanners and Videodrome to Eastern Promises. Great stuff.
Thanks for the friendship on Goodreads and if you're into horror and fantasy, check out my Quatermass tribute, THE LUNDQUIST CHRONICLES on http://www.lulu.com/content/4649341
Cheers mate,

Adam Lowe Thanks for the comment, Mike.

Will Chimeraworld ever return? I was chatting to Chet Gottfried, who contributed to Chimeraworld #2, and we both agreed it would be fantastic to see it return.


Andrew hey mike,
