The Forty First Wink - by James Walley -Just plain fun

5 of 5 Stars     Review copy

Bizarre, stream-of-consciousness, fantasy; It's hard to put a finger on James Walley' s debut novel.  One thing's for sure, you won't be bored.

Marty thinks he's awakened with a massive hangover, but actually he's still asleep and stuck in his dream with evil clowns, cloth pirates, bodies of water made of paper, mirror images with a mind of their own, flying galleons, and much more.

"When he had woken that morning, he had not expected to be going to work, and he had certainly not expected to be arriving at work at the helm of a pirate galleon, with a small army of stuffed toys and a massive robotic bird.  Even as insane as that concept sounded in his head, it sure beat taking the bus."

With a writing style reminiscent of the late Douglas Adams (while remaining entirely Earthbound, if you don't count a flying Pirate ship), James Walley takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride of an adventure.

True, this isn't great literature, but it certainly is great fun.

The Forty-First Wink will be released on June 16, 2014 from Ragnarok Publications.  Set a reminder for yourself to grab this one when it comes out.

Highly recommended.
