About Randy Noble

My life has been one of finding what I would love to do for a living.

I tried university soon after high school, film and video major, but was not ready so I dropped out.

I had a strong desire to work in the film industry, in some capacity, for many years. After dropping out of University, I thought I would opt for film school, instead of the drawn out University method of teaching one about making films. But the expense of it turned me off, and it never happened.

After a few years of crappy, minimum wage jobs, I needed to do something so I decided to go back to University, but as a Computer Science major. I graduated in 2000 and have worked at a few companies, currently in the health industry as a Programmer/Analyst. It's not something I want to do for the rest of my life.

I always thought it was movies I was interested in, but it is the creation of stories where my passion lies. If I'm not writing it, I'm thinking it, over and over in my head, playing it out. I've written some short stories and one novel so far. All my short stories are free to download.

Acknowledgments: Thanks very much to Karen Kindrachuk from www.solepurpose.ca for the awesome Surviving The Theseus cover design.

This was a wonderful read. I read the complete story aloud as a friend listened and we both laughed, smiled and enjoyed. Thanks for keeping our attention....

Cool story. I thought the first half was excellent. (Check out Richard Matheson's "Hunted Beyond Reason" sometime). Great suspense building. EXCELLENT gut curdling scene.

I got a little bogged down in the middle sequence, the back and forth from one character to the next became a little confusing and slowed down the flow.

I thought the ending was good. I don't want to comment too much on that and spoil any one else's fun.

Good job man. I was, as you hoped, entertained.

Definitely not boring! Stephen King would be proud of you. I had a different ending in mind, but it was just a good.

These characters jumped off the page, and I admit, there were parts where I was cringing and thinking, "Oh please, don't make Paul do that!" I enjoyed it, esp. the ending. Also, it later dawned on me what the encounter with Earl meant in regards to Paul's past. At least, my interpretation lead me to some pretty cool conclusions.

Talk about some bad luck ...

This story was as creepy as they come. The first half was insanely suspenseful, graphic, and disturbing. While I really sat on the edge of my seat waiting for the next piece of disturbia to hit me, I ended up a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong, this book was very well done, the problem was the creepiness dwindled just past the halfway point. It wasn't bad, it just didn't go in the direction I was expecting.

This story has a lot of potential. It's a great idea, creepy as hell, and as twisted as an Eli Roth piece. I will probably think of Earl everytime I see a hitchhiker for the rest of my life.
