Guillermo Stitch | 3 comments My name is Guillermo Stitch and my short novel, Literature®, will be available via Amazon and Kindle from July 1st.

I'm happy (delighted in fact) to provide ARC's in pdf, mobi or epub formats in exchange for advance Goodreads reviews.

It's a science fiction noir. Here's the blurb:

We don't know exactly when Literature® takes place and we don't know exactly where. All we know is that Philip Marlowe would fit right in.

We don't get Marlowe though. We get Billy Stringer. And Billy is on nobody's trail.

He's the prey.

The day hasn't begun very well for Billy. He just messed up his first big assignment, he's definitely going to be late for work, his girlfriend won't get back to him and, for reasons she has something to do with, he's dressed like a clown.

Also, he's pretty sure someone is going to kill him today. But then, that's an occupational hazard, when you're a terrorist.

He's a bookworm too, which wouldn't be a problem–or particularly interesting–except that in Billy's world, fiction is banned. Reading it is what makes him an outlaw.

Why? Because people need to get to work.

It's fight or flight time for Billy and he's made his choice. But he has to see Jane, even if it's for the last time–to explain it all to her, before she finds out what he has become. That means staying alive for a little while.

And the odds are against him....

Although this is my fiction debut, my work has already garnered praise when privately workshopped with published authors, none of whom were friends of mine. Examples:

"A fine, engaging, playful and original piece of work." Charles Boyle, author of The Age of Cardboard and String and owner of CB Editions, a leading small press in the U.K.

"The most astounding thing I've read in years." Matt Dennison, Rattle, Monkey Puzzle, Gargoyle Magazine.

"Better than Anthony Burgess at his utter best." James Lloyd Davis, Eric Hoffer Prose Award

"Groovy language - a delight to read." Penny Goring, leading light in British Altlit.

If you have any interest, please get in touch!
