Robert Eggleton 2016 second edition of Rarity from the Hollow almost here! Dog Horn Publishing contacted me and because of the overwhelming positive reception, it is interesting in an update. Thanks everybody for your interest in a comical an satirical sci-fi novel that has received been presented on hundreds of different blogs, 23 countries, because of it's mission to help prevent child abuse. Love


Robert Eggleton Hi Elaine,

As a book reviewer, you picked a wonderful line to quote as it applies to helping many victims of child abuse. Anger can be counterproductive when working to empower victims. Anger, sure it’s easy to feel and to express, but it may be impotent and could backfire as a strategy, if one really want to help, to have an impact.

So often, the abuse is a symptom, a dysfunction. The kids know it, feel it, like Lacy Dawn, the protagonist in this story who demanded that her own parents be “fixed” first before she would even consider saving the universe. In real life, the children often love their abusive caregivers, and, in their own way, the abusive caregivers also love their children. Sure, the adults are ********’s so easy to despise….

Lacy Dawn got extra special help in this story to fulfill her destiny. I hope that readers of my story will become increasingly sensitize to the issue and want to contribute to the prevention of child abuse / exploitation all over our planet. You are the extra special help that real-life children need.


Robert Eggleton Unsolicited Top 100 Amazon Book Reviewer posted five star review of Rarity from the Hollow today: "...This is one brilliant book and Highly Recommended for all readers – for entertainment and reinforcement of much needed values." 9-18-15


Robert Eggleton 9-7-15, Free Article: Science Fiction and Social Activism

"...The impact of speculative fiction on my personal world view began in the 1960s when Ellison, Aldiss, Herbert and others wrote about the stuff that many American teens at the time were reflecting upon – social and political issues at a tumultuous time. Protests against increasing militarism during the Vietnam War were fueled by the writings of Ellison and Vonnegut. Speculative fiction back then was more than escapism, as evidenced by Ursula Le Guinn winning both the Hugo and Nebula awards in 1970...."

Rusty Nugent Greetings,

Hopefully, we will become great buddies. I am an 42 year old southern gentleman author. I am working on my third novel. It's an paranormal, horror, adventure, magical, romantic, urban, dark fantasy book series, named Moonwarriors: In An Blackened Dawn. Take a look at my second novel Moonwarriors: Guardians of the Night. They are about heroic werewolves waging war against evil supernatural creatures. Come by and we'll chat, leave a comment.

Until Next Time . . .
