THE BOOKS THAT TERRY PRATCHETT FANS ARE WAITING FOR

WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID ABOUT MY WORK


“I read this MS with an initial sense of excitement at the obvious facility with which the author can write. The style is reminiscent of the racy paciness of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and has just as much ability to carry a joke.”

A good fun read July 3, 2013    By paul little

This is a book that does what is says: it is a satire on many recognizable themes and holds each of them up to the razor blade of humor. There are many characters striving to keep their place in the limelight in this book, which makes for a lot of scene jumps. This is clearly part of the charm and it is remarkable that the plot stays together under the strain. The clue is in the book title of course.

There are a number of important questions asked in the book: namely, what happens to heroes whose stories are not finished and what will happen when robot lawn mowers become self-aware? Beware the Lawnminator!

“Sinkronisity” is a fun book with multiple interesting levels and a good read.

About the author: Stephen Faulds is a fantasy author based in Perth, Australia, and describes his approach: “My writing explores the search for truth and self-actualisation in a variety of genres and styles”
Another instructive quotation taken from Faulds Facebook page: “When a character says or does something you don’t approve then it is safe to assume you have given your creation a life of its own and it will now have an interesting story. A character is not a mouthpiece of the writer; it represents itself.”
From the dust cover: “A satirical science fiction fantasy about time travel and destiny. Old Rang lives in a cave on the edge of a time warp. His visitors include the Nottle villagers who believe he makes the sun rise every morning and a time traveller called Vince Yaga who is the least superstitious man in the universe. Vince Yaga discovers Ruce Lemming, a character from an unfinished epic fantasy novel by Seferin Fane. Ruce is being stalked by a mutant lawnmower named Victor. After a variety of erroneous misadventures which involve an array of characters including Buggeroni, an inventor from Florence; his wife Florrida; Belinda Nort, an out of work actress; an old Fakir and Rod Singlet, a Nostralian Itinerant, Seferin is helped to finish his novel so that Ruce and everyone in the immediate vicinity, including the lawnmower can fulfil their respective destinies.”

A brilliant satire, January 23, 2014

This review is from: Treuth (Kindle Edition)

This is the second book in a hopefully growing series. I highly recommend you read the first in the series, Sinkronisity, first. That aside, there are so few satirical comedic sci-fi and fantasy books out these days, and less that are absolutely stellar. Stephen Faulds has managed to write two hilarious satires that will definitely appeal to Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett and Robert Rankin fans. Faulds manages to just skirt the line between parody, satire and bizarre-without going overboard. This is one case where the sample definitely gives you the idea of the flow and humour of the story. (As opposed to those samples that are great but then the book goes downhill fast, or a sample which didn’t seem funny, but you hope it gets better). If you don’t like that “British sense of humour”, or can’t appreciate the authours I’ve mentioned above, then this is unfortunately not the book for you. If you’re interested, don’t forget to read Fauld’s book, Sinkronisity first!

SYNOPSIS
A sequel to Sinkronisity and Treuth featuring a few of the earlier characters together with a different cross section of the time-warped universe. The theme of this story is the interface between fiction, reality and time. It is about writers and would be writers and the way in which reality is read as though it were a story. It explores the satirical potential of writers facing of rejection, publication and writer’s block.SampleSAMPLESomething evil stirs. The kind of evil that nice people dread and the kind of stirring that happens when dark ideas are being thought.He remembers better times. More evil times. When he was more powerful. Because then, he didn’t have a conscience and he wasn’t in touch with his own feelings. That was the problem, being in touch with all these feelings. Love, guilt, tenderness, empathy … and that last word reminded him of something else. A name. And a smiling face that sickened one with optimism and hope, the qualities that just weren’t necessary with evil. Real evil.     It was time to be evil again. Being at peace with yourself and your fellow sentient beings was monotonous. Besides, he had been created as the embodiment of evil. That was his destiny. The being good thing had been a bad idea. There were good people out there who weren’t properly defined unless they had something evil threatening them.Venelle Sniggs held the piece of paper tightly in her hand. The sweat on her palm had smudged the address but it was still legible. K. Sempathy, Psychologist, 3 Loopy Lane.     Kerrin Sempathy was a psychotherapist with an enviable reputation. His clients included celebrities such as soapie stars Tiffany Motswoll and Brad Melwon. Tiffany originally consulted him on marital problems and was now a very successful multiple divorcee. Brad, after mild shock therapy had overcome his chronic narcissism and now did regular community service at the Brad Melwon Fan Club.        As part of his commitment to serving humanity Kerrin also treated less savoury clients, usually gratis and often at risk to his personal safety. He had treated Yelvin Thrax, who suffered claustrophobia in prison cells. Yelvin was cured with hot baths and suthi meditation and now lived happily in Yardarm Maximum Security Prison where he was serving several life sentences.      Kerrin Sempathy’s most notorious client was Morchoclat the Dark Lord who escaped from a fantasy novel and terrorised the world before being defeated by Ruce Lemming and his true love Elwynn. The Dark Lord had been reconciled with his mother and overcame his penchant for torture and oppression.     Venelle had been given Kerrin’s address by Elward Prinknash who found Kerrin’s business card in the cabin of Vince Yaga’s time machine where it had been dropped by Seferin Fane, the fantasy writer who created Morchoclat, Ruce Lemming and Elwynn.     Venelle was an aspiring writer. She needed treatment for writer’s block, which she caught at an early age. When she was in primary school a teacher hit her over the knuckles with a ruler because her running writing was not sitting on the line. She hadn’t written a word since. She had a romance novel inside her, which was trying to get out.
