Keith's new book: Ill Wind out now!

Postby Unfront » 03 Nov 2010 00:17

I just read Keith J. Anderson's blahg: He just released a new *buuk* it's an eco thriller called: Ill Wind

My oil-spill disaster ecothriller ILL WIND, with Doug Beason, now available for Kindle. http://tinyurl.com/27p4ys2


The guy is one book too late on that title.
Anything Dune not written by Frank Herbert is simply Fan Fiction.

Well, "new" in 1995, at any rate.

So, basically a More Cowbell version of Stephenson's Zodiac: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zodiac_%28novel%29?

A pretty great book, btw, about ecology and consequences, "ecoterrorism" and publicity stunts and some almost-over-the-top humor. But of course, the end of the world is far more interesting, what more people dying and bigger things blowing up...

:lol:

Don't feel too bad, Unfront. KJA always posts so breathlessly about everything that sometimes it's hard to know what's new and what's just more old shtuff recycled.

I can't remember... has anyone around here read this sucker? Omph?

Here's a bit from the scenario of the alternate universe bestseller Jessica's Ill Winds...
While using her amazing Bene Gesserit witch powers to perform a liquid-less douche, Jessica inadvertently transforms some of her microbial vagina fauna into methanogens, resulting in her being afflicted for nearly a month with an unstoppable attack of cowfart queefs...
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

I wonder if she could cook up some crystal meth in there?

Ill Wind

I sent Anderson a copy of this review years ago. He got mad at me.

it was a late night, but he did just post that on his blog. I guess hewas just spewing about the fact that it is now available on Kindl....all this talk of Winds of Dune..(which is the real Ill Wind) got me confused. My brain has shrunk to a smalller size after reading the garbage.

That's my new tag on Amazon: "books that sap IQ points"! :P

(The IQ gets reduced to lowercase, but what the hey! :lol: )

"books by whiny authors" is another. ;)

New hardback from $6.45? When was this released?
Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

Ahh. Well I'm fresh out of excuses to bitch about KJA. I'll defer to y'all on that for the time being.

Ah, but that's probably the one nice thing about KJA: He's the never-cleaned, fly-blown, roadside gas station toilet that never stops overflowing! :lol:


Did I say "nice"? :shock:
