Review by: aspir8or on April 18, 2012 :
Great read and if the next installment doesn't come soon (and I mean looong before the heat death of the universe) I will end up reading the pap that other authors generate and then I'll have to re-read the first installment in order to re-acquaint myself with the original plotline. (Did I mention I have a memory like a chronic case of diarrhea?) Now where was I? Oh yes. 4 stars until the next chapter in what should turn into a full length novel. Or at least a novella. When does a short story turn into a novella then into a novel? Ye-gads. I'm raving. It's that inner voice waking up and spitting out rubbish until I learn how to re-awaken meaningful dialog with it. Now see what you've done. I am not Mickey Mouse!

A college friend of mine brought my attention to this story and I'm so glad he did. I didn't find I needed a thesaurus to read it. In fact, it was a pleasure to read someone's work about the normal dribble.

I especially liked the fight between the wizard and the Muscled Magnate. Good work.

I just finished this absolutely engaging and wonderfully sarcastic story and I wish to say, "Thank You!"
This was a truly good read, I had a lot of fun rooting for the main character, a rascally rogue complete with a snarkish attitude and an ever un-complementary Unconscious ego. I loved how you used that voice that we all have inside our heads, the one we try not to listen to and usually succeed at to our own detriment and disillusionment. You have a real hook there that I hope you develop into a series.
The setting of the story was a little vague though.
Where does it happen? On Earth or another world? When? Contemporary time? Recent history? Ancient past? Post-apocolyptic future? A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away? Location should also be a character in the story.
In fact, some of the best authors do this.
I will admit that I need a thesaurus to follow some of the dialog. Some writers do feel the need to showcase their intelligence and resort to slinging obscure words here and there into a story. Once in a while is fine but if you're after an audience you shouldn't make too much of a practice of this. In short, Don't teach us English, tell us a Story!
That's what we're here for.
Anyway, I think you have a good thing going on here! I'd love for you to make this into a larger story and have it published in traditional hard or paper-backed books.
I wish you plenty of success.
I also wish you'd hurry up with the next installment.
Get Busy!
