Tony Noland is a long time writer friend whose writing encourages me to long for a simpler time. The super hero, Alex Graham, harkens back to the memory of a time long forgotten, though gladly preserved in comic books. And yet, it is a modern, or even post-modern tale.
“Tony Noland lives and writes in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA. A lover of language, wordplay, and complex thoughts, Tony nevertheless limits himself to 140 characters at a time on Twitter as @TonyNoland.”
“From the Amazon page for “Verbosity’s Vengeance”:
“Alex Graham’s genius designing video games brought him happiness and made him a fortune, but he never expected to see his work misused by military scientists. The collapse of the mysterious Project Unicorn left Alex with scars, nightmares, and strange powers unlike any other superhero. Years later, as the Grammarian, he uses the strength of supple syntax and the power of perfect punctuation to fight for justice on the mean streets of Lexicon City. “
Today is day for birthday celebrations!
To celebrate this week, I will feature authors and more who share a special place in the months of September and October.
Today is Tony Noland’s Day!
I’ve known Tony Noland on Twitter and Facebook or a long time. He is far more likely to be on Twitter ( @TonyNoland) than Facebook.
Check out his Amazon Page.
I read and reviewed his “Verbosity’s Vengeance: A Grammarian Adventure Novel” a year or so ago. Out of 7 reviews, it has a 4.7 rating. It is also only 0.99.
Here is a part of my review:
“This novel will appeal to two potentially very different audiences. A page on the blog, or website that has a few basics about superheros (for those who like grammar, and know nothing of superheros), and few grammar and science facts that make help the reader better understand a few confusing scenes would be a great addition. A mention that this exists at the beginning of the novel would be great. I had questions I needed to ask of my college friends to comprehend a few of the superhero aspects.”
A fun read.
He has a few other fun reads to enjoy.
