For the next few weeks, I am going to suggest a few new releases that you might enjoy while on vacation, or even in your garden at home. Generally, they are light-hearted, humorous novels, however, today I am starting with something quite different. Written by a man who is sharp-witted and who often writes comedy, I’m tipping this as a Hot Summer Special as this book will have huge appeal, particularly to many fans of Genesis. Chris James is the author of this super collection of stories based on the songs by Genesis. Here’s the press release:

If you think that It’s pretentious, you’ve been taken for a ride,

Look across the mirror, sonny, before you choose – decide! It is here… It
is now!”

Press release: 14 July 2013. Warsaw, Poland. Author Chris James announces the
publication of Stories of Genesis, Vol. 1, a collection of five original short
stories based on characters in songs by the rock band Genesis. Stories of
Genesis, Vol. 1 is available in both paperback and e-book versions.

Chris James is the critically acclaimed author of three ground-breaking science
fiction novels: Class Action (2010), and the first two parts of The Second
Internet Café trilogy (The Dimension Researcher, 2011, The Cascade Annihilator,
2013). With the 24,000-word Stories of Genesis, Vol. 1, James continues to break
new ground in fiction by creating stories behind some of the characters featured
in Genesis songs, including Supper’s Ready, which James re-imagines as The
Final Battle.

Stories of Genesis

A new kind of fan fiction. Five original short stories inspired by characters which feature in songs from the rock band Genesis.

In Mr Magrew’s Incredible Journey, the creature from A Trick Of The Tail recounts his adventure over the Hills of Night, to a strange land where the natives had neither horns nor tails.

The Chat Show Host, inspired by the song Duchess, sees TV interviewer Jason ‘JJ’ Jones about to host the singer Duchess on his show, as she promotes her comeback album. But JJ knows her dark secret, and plans to destroy her comeback so his own career can finally take off.

In One Regret, the narrator from Dreaming While You Sleep reaches the last day of his life, and relives the moment twenty years earlier when he fell asleep at the wheel.

The Final Battle tells the full story of Supper’s Ready, as the guardians of Earth are forced once again to do battle with the Eternal Sanctuary Man. Unknown to the guardians, the Eternal Sanctuary Man has a new and powerful army. The guardians are all but destroyed, and the Eternal Sanctuary Man drags the few survivors to his farms. Only one guardian, Captain Amon, can thwart the Eternal Sanctuary Man’s plans – if he can survive long enough.

In The Agent Lunges, inspired by the song Down And Out, an author receives a phone call from a copyright agent, who gives him a nasty surprise.
