About James Hold

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

I published my first book in 2004. It became an immediate collector's item. I know this for a fact as 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 Princess wife, and cats Rocky and Dusty. You can contact me at

Onto the 5 star bandwagon.
Eventually all will be starred
These and Yegua series are great, when I finish his other series I am sure they will be as good.

I had to re-read this book, and I can say: I surely made an err with my previous review. Climbed on a band-wagon of the other reviewers.

This was a funny book, a comic to be precise without pictures, it was smartly written and worth to get a five....WOWZA!

this is very funny. puns are great and names are creative. i don't know why it is getting low reviews. readers are not paying attention to the description which says this is "a comic book without pictures." it is like having a comic book read out loud to you and you hear the dialogue and captions but you do not see the actual art. if you accept that and use your imagination it is a fun concept and the author pulls it off well. i would like to see him do more of these experiments.

Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on Sep. 5, 2015 :
A super silly short to tickle the old ribcage. Will our hero stop the dreaded menace of Moo Fan-chu or will the day end in a complete and udder-catastrophe!

Loved the absurdity of this one.
