  • The Garden Wall on Oct. 24, 2011

    Great debut novel by Lichfield Dean. If you appreciate Douglas Adams and/or Terry Pratchett, you will enjoy this book. Plenty of humour and the Magical Drum Kit might just be one of the funniest creations in literature. The ending leaves it wide open for a followup book, more please Mr. Dean!

    A science fiction short story from the author of the sublime 'The Garden Wall'. What do you do if you find yourself inexplicably bumping into the leader of the sworn enemy of your nation? What if you find yourself eating pickled onions with her, and what if she's not only a really nice person, but is also attracted to you? This romantic science-fiction comedy short story is a real page turner, a great read with some pretty funny moments in it involving characters you actually care about. My only criticism is that it does end very abruptly, but other than that it is a cracking good read - even better that the author has given it away for free!

    Doesn't really live up to the early promise and the formatting is horrible to read on a Kindle
