Hello fellow humans. Having written this book, I present it to you this July 1st, 2017. July comes early to the land of morning calm (soon to be renamed the land of morning rage). The revolution has begun. Should you choose to read and review it, that's cool, and I hope you enjoy it. You are welcome to use the comment space below to bash and banter if you're in the mood to boil my blood.

Spread the word, and get with the movement. The first 144,000 readers get a free pass into heaven. The rest ca

Technically I am not gr=Friends with this author. In the sense that the author=Profile is not on my Friends List. However. The flesh and blood author seems to have embodied itself in a second profile with whom I am in fact gr=Friends. So everything here is a lie. Everything I say below is a lie. Or, if it's not a lie--it could be truth, disguised as a lie--you'll have to discover that on your own following your own scientific line of inquiry. And to make matters worse, in terms of my motivation ...more

I read 110 pages of this excellent novel of urban warfare, street gangery, and clan philosophy. The reason for non-completion: a recent spate of paranoia, self-loathing, and dental anguish sapped my usual readerly brio, in addition to this sort of fiction not being my bag. But the prose is well-hewn, the episodes fast-paced, and the characters have a swaggering credibility that makes their escapades hard to dislike, violence aside. It is also a bold choice in a novel of this sort one might confi ...more

A thoroughly enjoyable and unique reading experience.

Playful and funny at times. Scary and violent at others. But always unexpected and engaging. Very hard to put down.

Get it!

Metarules of the S.M.F. was an interesting story. The story was unexpecting and engaging, once you start to read it you wouldn't be able to stop reading. Definitely wasn't disappointed in what I read. ...more

He believes in the universality of human struggle and the occasional necessity of gallows humor. While he's alive, he knows it's the strength of family that sustains him. But if, through his words, he can help another soul to shrug off a bit of l ...more
