Opposable is Free! Badass Sci Fi Needs Your Help to Make it Huge!
Greetings Allies! To celebrate the one year anniversary of Opposable‘s original launch date, Father’s Day, the Summer Solstice, and the 30th anniversary of Robocop 2, Total Recall, and Ghost Dad’s release (all released in June 1990), I’m running my first free promo on Amazon!
I need help! And I also need you to spread the word about Opposable. It’s the perfect gift for Dad and the perfect Summer read.
If you haven’t picked up a copy yet, please do. If you have and liked it, tell your friends. If you have and hated it, tell your enemies.
I’m also still actively seeking reviews, so anything you can do in that arena would be spectacular.
If you’ve already done some or all of that, thank you! You’re the life blood of Opposable!
I included the latest version of the back cover copy/blurb/excerpt/elevator pitch. I don’t think I’ll ever get it 100% right, but I won’t stop trying.
FUR AND BRIMSTONE
Superhuman cats versus superhuman aliens, with subhuman humans caught in the melee.
Join a transgalactic band of misfits on an action-packed, hilarious, campy and gory science fiction road trip that begins with first contact and ends with last rights.
RULE OF THUMB
The Arca Trochia; a shifty, omniscient mega-fungus two billion light years from Earth, impregnated Dr. Vanderbilt’s mind with Sparks; thought spores carrying ideas. The Sparks search the cosmos for other habitable planets and germinate in fertile minds. Once rooted, they create Spires; portals allowing for instantaneous travel between the two worlds.
The first Spark told Dr. Vanderbilt to document every detail of the Arca Trochia’s home world; Halteres. The second Spark told him to attach bionic, opposable thumbs onto his cats.
PAY ATTENTION. THIS IS SERIOUS.
The ambivalous Dr. V thinks these ideas are his, and what he’s too aloof to know, will kill us all.
EARTH’S FATE COULDN’T REST IN WORSE HANDS.
Can psychotic cyborg cats, a pyromaniac alien, the punk rock Veteran of Chemical Wars, a merc known as Lilac Vengeance, and a severed head convince the unwitting doctor that he and his cats hold the key to thwarting the imminent alien invasion?
It’ll take every gram of effort (and drugs) the multi-species cadre of rebels can score to knock some sense into Dr. V as they cut a swath of debauchery through the Rocky Mountains and Southwest on their way to head off the attack.
ALIENS, PREPARE TO ABDUCT SOME LEAD.
Thanks again. You guys are the best!
Until next time, bother me, and bother everyone else about Opposable! Take it from Bob Morton, if you do…
