T J Price
Born in 1887. Horse orthodonist and connoisseur of Vimto. Took up the pen when the local dogtrack closed down. Favourite seduction method is to sing a lullaby rendition of "Knees Up Mother Brown" accompanied by trombone and therimn. Handy with a Bowie Knife but happier with a blancmange. Voted for Electrolux in the 1932 Presidential Election. Most favoured herb: Parsley. Turned down a proposal of polygamy from the Van DeGroote sisters. "Liked" sausage rolls on Facebook -- nothing else, just sausage rolls. Represented in all court cases by Harbottle, Kinch and Rumsfeld. Took up the pen while convalescing from a volcanic erruption. Under the keen, silver-blue gaze of the full moon is liable to turn into a chrysanthenmum. Author of "Bathtime with a Shoggoth" MindMyBunion!

Smashwords book reviews by T J Price
- Candy and Cigarettes
on Sep. 16, 2011
A relentlessly bleak tale told with poetic flair. The style is literary, but the story-telling has the narrative force of a solid thriller.
- The Jesus Fish and Slaughter Bird
on Oct. 05, 2011
Well written downbeat story with an upbeat ending.
- Eddie's Shorts - Volume 2
on Oct. 13, 2011
All of "Eddie's Shorts" are first rate -- intelligent and surprising, and most importantly, enjoyable. The writing is spot on. I particularly liked "67 Feet in the Air".
- Emigrant for a day
on Oct. 26, 2011
A rather wonderful prose poem.
- The Space
on March 22, 2012
Interesting idea -- a Great Old One finally joins an accountancy firm. Needs a trifle more editing in places, but a nice read.
- How to be Happy (No Fairy Dust or Moonbeams Required)
on May 13, 2012
How to be Happy is a very readable book and Cara Stein must have put a lot of work into writing it. I'd recommend it to everyone, because everyone at some point will probably need some of this advice. Well done.

Bah, humbug indeed!
