Déjà Vu all over again
A few years ago I read and gave an enthusiastic blurb for a small-press, POD-published book, something I don't often do. The book was Déjà Vu
, by Ian Hocking. It was a cracking story, more technothriller than SF, using plausible-sounding physics to set up, as I recall, a time-travel paradox that powered a cleverly thought-through plot. It was at least as good as lot of more widely-published work in the same genre. I wasn't the only reviewer who thought the book, and the writer, deserved a lot better
. Ian's efforts to become a properly published writer were serious, unavailing, and in the end heartbreaking
. He had another life than being a writer, and reckoned it was time he got on with it.
Now he has decided
to make Déjà Vu
available on Kindle
for a very low price. Give it a go. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised, and find yourself, as I did, looking forward to the sequel.
