Once again, I’m paring down Reading Radar – but that’s because I have some new content in the works!
Reading Radar will now feature one independently-published or crowdfunded work per week. This reduction is to help give me time for new writing exercises that are scheduled to go up on this site starting in March.
This week’s work is from one of my favorite book crowdfunding sites, Inkshares.
Half 60’s spy novel, half classic sci-fi serial, To Live and Die in Avalon looks like a really fun read. Right from the start of the sample chapters, I really enjoyed the campiness and the smart use of tropes from two classic genres.
The story follows Penny Thorne, a secret agent on her final mission – to find and rescue Dr. Baxter, a scientist who was cryogenically frozen in 1969. She finds herself pursued by a relentless military force as she unravels the mysteries behind Dr. Baxter and Avalon, humanity’s home among the stars.
This project looks very promising, and I bet it’ll reach its funding goals quickly when it goes live.
I’m off to read more sample chapters, and to find another work for next week’s feature!
