1 star1 star1 star1 star0.5 star
Lost years ago from its traditional owner, thrown into a swamp by a Hand with no ear for music, the Sword struggles through the seamy underside of society to regain the path towards honour, glory, and a Name.
This new prospect is only a woodcutter, but he has a strong arm and a receptive mind. A chance for heroic deeds? The Sword dares to dream again. Now, if only someone had a sense of humour!

About Gordon A. Long

After 30 years of teaching, 40 years of theatre, and 20 years of playwrighting, I think I’ve paid my dues, and it’s time to become a novelist.

I also adjudicate Speech Arts Festivals, and direct two different Seniors’ performance troupes. Sometimes I teach ESL in Korea. My latest fun job was supervising the medal ceremonies in Speed Skating for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. I crew on a 32-foot racing sloop called “Planet Claire” out of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, and I’m starting to compete in Agility with my Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Josh. (Actually, he competes. I run around and look like I’m contributing).

A Sword Called…Kitten?
The main character of the novel talks about Swords, stealing souls, and humans' lack of a sense of humour.

This book is a cracking read and I'd recommend it to anyone, especially those looking for something just that little bit different. It's well-written and amusing, and is full of action and "attitude". If you've never read a book written by a sword before (and let's be honest - who has?) then you've just got to read this.
