About James Hold

"First you're an unknown, then you write one book and you move up to obscurity." — Martin Meyers

I published a book in 2004. It became an immediate collector's item. In fact, I have several hundred copies collecting dust in my attic. Critics everywhere said it belonged right up there between Ernest Hemingway and Robert E Howard—on an alphabetical bookshelf.

My influences include Rocky & Bullwinkle, 1950s sci-fi movies, and silver-age comics.

I live in Texas with my wife, Princess, and cats, Rocky and Dusty. You can contact me at jamesroyhold@gmail.com.

Review by: Michelle Broussar on Oct. 10, 2015 :
I found this by searching under the tags of "cats" and "humor." It has plenty of both. THE GAUNT-FACED GRAPPLER is eight stories combined into an overall narrative. They are all very funny, some downright wacky, and never fail to provide a laugh. The main character is a cat that has changed itself into a human being and become a professional fighter. Part of the fun is how the cat must learn to act human. The stories put him in many crazy situations. My favorite is "Lettuce Prey" which reads like an Ultraman parody. But all of them are good. I enjoyed this book because it's full of jokes, puns, and Tom Swifties and you don't have to be a fight fan to enjoy it.
