Lovejoy's World

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Wally heads out to rescue his girlfriend, Vickie, and Keira to rescue her career -- across the parsecs to primitive Lovejoy's World. They'll soon be sorry.
The planet's backward economy is supported by a prison regime like that of czarist Siberia, and every citizen carries arms. Our two fledglings will be lucky to come back in one piece…
Especially after the ponies get through with them. More

About Dai Alanye

No superheroes nor anything supernatural (thus far, at least.) Expect merely ordinary people - you and me, as it were - caught up in extraordinary circumstances. Plots are character-driven, and the characters themselves are complex and often contradictory.
I aim to appeal to the reader who has an ample sense of humor and an appreciation for irony. You can expect adventure and romance, but graphic violence and sex are at a minimum - think PG or PG-13 at most - and suitable for mature youths as well as adults.

Review by: Lynn Clayton on Aug. 27, 2012 :
Lovejoy's World is a sinister place, the approach to which is described by Dai Alanye in convincing detail. But from the beginning the tone is ominous. Here criminals are deported but who is the criminal and who the law-abiding? A world with few comforts and little to eat, one nevertheless feels the inhabitants will do anything for money.It's a joyless place, a frontier to the utterly unknown. At times it seems Wally and Kiera are out only contact with normality and clarity, the only ones we can trust.

Strange animals and insects abound - unicorns without horns; ponies which are in fact centaurs - human-eating half men with spears. This is no airy-fairy fantasy, however, but down-to-earth scariness. Lovejoy's World offers futuristic space travel back in time to a terrifying age which the reader hopes will never be. Thrilling and thought-provoking.
