You can try to block the chimney
You can arc-weld shut the flue
But it won’t matter what you try
‘Cause Santa’s stalking you.
He sees you when you’re sleeping?
He knows when you’re awake?!
Just how many warning signs
Is it going to take?
He’s forcing all those elven slaves
To make you little gifts.
He bids you come sit on his lap,
It’d give him SUCH a “lift.”
We’ve tried to call the FBI,
There’s nothing they can do.
They say the big guy’s just a myth,
But Santa’s stalking you.
So it’s the holiday season, and in the dual spirits of sharing and shameless self-promotion, here’s an exclusive excerpt from Chapter 4 of Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure!
I have no words. Really. Yet I must share.
What really gets me are the production values.
What IS this???
From Goodreads: My review of Cain S. Latrani’s insane comedic fantasy, The Kingdom…
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If I may borrow from Forrest Gump (and that shows you how old *I* am), this book is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re gonna get. Each chapter of The Kingdom is a short story making up the larger whole, and each story contains things that are:
- Laugh-out-loud hilarious
- Offensive (in a funny way)
- Offensive (in a not-so-funny way)
- Completely bonkers
The secret algorithm has decided that it’s again time for another geek-related Top 5 List! (Said secret algorithm is totally a mathematical model run on a Cray supercomputer and is in no way just a fancy metaphor for my own personal whims.) This time around, it’s a special one originally created for the 8/12 stop on the Zeus Is Dead Blog Tour, but posted here on my own blog for the first time.
Top Five Things You Absolutely Cannot Leave Home Without When Embarking (Up)on an Adventure
This topic was suggested to me by fellow author Gareth S. Young as one of a few possible ideas for a guest blog post on the tour. This was the one of his that I liked the most, as you likely already figured out due to the fact that I’ve written this. So, in no particular order… [Read more…]
Zeus Is Dead: A Monstrously Inconvenient Adventure, written by a geek for geeks, took a trip (without me!) to the Star Trek Las Vegas convention last weekend. I present to you conclusive proof that the novel is accepted by geeks throughout the Alpha Quadrant:
“Zeus Is Dead is full of laugh-out-loud moments, lashings of sly wit, moan-worthy puns, and a complex, fast-paced storyline. There aren’t very many humorous fantasy murder mysteries out there, especially not as intricately constructed as this one. Michael G. Munz takes a ‘What if,’ and runs with it like a toddler with Mom’s smart phone. The guffaw-worthy throwaway bits will remind you of Douglas Adams. A very enjoyable read.”
