The Legend of Charlie Fish
Cover by John Coulthart

This is a gripping, compelling and highly entertaining novel that kept hooked and turning pages and surprised me at each turn with new marvels and wonderful twists.

It’s poignant, full of emotions, a bit weird at times: it made me cry buckets and smile. It made me discover a new author and I thoroughly enjoyed this story

i strongly recommend it because it’s a brilliant novel.

Entropy Isn’t What it Used to Be

THE LEGEND OF CHARLIE FISH is ultimately fun, full of deep character work and heartfelt emotion. Charlie Fish could be just a plot device but is instead a fleshed-out and real character who feels like one of the strange and makeshift family.

Horror DNA

This is a well-written, entertaining, and hugely original book. I thought it was great.

The Book Lover’s Boudoir

Recommended for those who like quirky characters and historical details.

Captain’s Quarters
“This is a story with an underlying fantastical edge about doing what is right. A warm hearted tale about an eclectic group of remarkable characters going against the odds as well as against the storm of a lifetime.

These characters are just a joy to hang out with.” — Paul Preston (pbanditp)
