The Misspellers

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
They should have known not to nose around. Outside, the house smelled of rotten cabbage, burnt onions and wet dogs. Inside, there was no phone, no television, not so much as a single electric light. Carlin and Jack didn’t like the place, but all they had to do was water plants while the owner was away. No one told them to discover the house’s biggest secret: science and magic don’t mix. More

About Michael Martineck

I started writing stories when I was twelve. You’d think I’d be better at it by now. It’s not from lack of trying. Over the years, I’ve put out short stories, comic book scripts, articles and trio of novels. I’ve put countless other ventures in the drawer.

The drawer is in my house on Grand Island, NY., a little cap of clay nestled between the US and Canada. This is also the location of my Ego Retention Program, whereby my beautiful wife and two lovely children continuously call out my various shortcomings, keeping me from becoming the screaming, self-centered artist I long to be.

DC Comics published a couple of stories in the early 90s.
Strange Horizons, Planetmag, Aphelion and a couple of other long-dead e-zines helped me out in 00s, along with The Misspellers and The Wrong Channel.

September 1 – Cinco de Mayo, my first novel for adults, from EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Review by: Katharina Gerlach on Aug. 06, 2010 :
The beginning was a bit slow but once the MC started to nose around the weird house, the story took off. From then on, it was fun to read. There are still some spelling mistakes that need attention (especially toward the end of the book) and the trouble from the beginning could be tied in a bit more with the end. Other than that, its a good book.
