D.L. Christopher is most likely a figment of either his own or somebody else's imagination and has managed through sheer hard work and determination to progress from humble beginnings to a marginally less humble present. His work, at last count, has been enjoyed by almost ten people, none of whom were publishers. He persists in trying to give his work to people in the earnest belief that the law of averages dictates one of them will be suffering from some kind of mental illness and will therefore enjoy it.
In Praise of D.L. Christopher:
Outstanding prose for an illiterate. . .
Soft, strong and surprisingly absorbent. . .
An example of broken Britain, down with this sort of thing. . .
Some nice things written by some lovely Amazon users:
The End Is (Short Story Collection)
A splendid collection of short stories. There was a little of everything but most of all splendid metaphors and magnificent scene setting in diverse settings. Somehow dark, moody and yet humorous. - Mr Paul Little (amazon.com)
Immemorial (Full Length Novel)
I loved this book. Great basic idea and well-written to boot. Absolute minimum of typos. I was floored by Jed and Ernest (both Ernests, actually) and their intertwined stories. Truly an interesting look at a possible future world. - Puna J (amazon.com)
Although the text is emotionally challenging, if you're anything like me, the thrill of peeling back each new layer of complexity in this sophisticated work will be more than enough to keep you transfixed to the pages, and whenever the darkness threatens to become all-consuming the author mercifully allows some black humour, and even occasional outright levity to creep through and provide us with the oxygen of daylight that both we, and Ernest, need. - Mr L.M. Sheils (amazon.co.uk)
This is a completely original book. The use of different voices with Jeds short staccato narrative and Ernest's introspective thoughts and nightmares interrupting reality. The use of language was excellent. None of the players were likeable yet the need go know what happened next was a driver to keep reading. Great ending. - L Downing (amazon.co.uk)
As I write this, I must give thanks to those readers who have purchased the stories available so far - my career earnings have soared to over £10.00 and, though I shan't be retiring just yet, I appreciate the faith that those of you who have spent your hard earned money on my work have had in this unknown writer.

Unfortunately not a book I could get into. Too slow, too much detail without any real revelations. Needs to move along at a faster pace
