The First Completely Electronic Robot and Science Fiction Limerick Book

Rated 3.67/5 based on 3 reviews
Is it possible to tell a tall tale in as few as thirty words? That would require a limerick, a five-line rhyming cartoon in words. In this case fifty-four tiny capsule science fiction stories to make you smile:
A hot little androidal miss - Who jets off steam with a hiss - Is made out of junk - And is very steam punk - So she's much too risky to kiss. More

About Peter Salisbury

I studied Chemistry at university and then spent over thirty years in classrooms across England teaching almost anything but Chemistry, including Photography, Communications Skills, General Science, Computing, and Information and Communications Technology.

In the 1990s I spent ten years writing abstracts of chemical patents. These were distributed to research scientists by subscription. Articles of mine have been published in magazines and I have written assignments used for assessing Communications Skills for a major international Examination Board. About twelve years ago I began writing science fiction.

What next? Complete the fourth novel-length book in the SF series following on from 'Passengers to Sentience', 'Passengers to Zeta Nine' and 'Passengers: Revelations'.

The profile picture is a portrait of the author as a young man, painted by Charlotte Salisbury, the cover artist for 'The Old Store'.

Great bit of fun. Laughed loads. Some good science fictions limericks. A good ting to dip into when you wake up feeling low.

I previously read this after picking it up at Amazon. While there are a couple of cute ones, most of this is bad. In my review at Amazon I said: if I had a "be sure to never buy anything from this author" list I would take the time to add everything he ever wrote to the list. Given that I wanted be sure and mention it here as well, as I almost just got one his other works, just the thought make me shudder.

This is a collection of humorous limericks by U.K. novelist, Peter Salisbury, usually known for his "serious" science fictions novels, like "Passengers to Sentience," and it's upcoming sequel. I read several of these limericks to my two children and they loved every one.

One of my (many) favorites is;

A cute little android called Shelly
Looked marvelously good on the telly
But being a punk
She caused quite a funk
Drinking oil that was terribly smelly.

It is a small book uniquely designed for today's digital eReaders that will have you rereading it again and again. It is also suitable for all ages (IMHO).
