The Chronicles of Dave moves to Amazon

Posted July 6, 2016 into Books by John Birmingham

I gave the HOOPER bundle to iBooks as an experiment a while ago. Now I move onto the next stage of that test, moving The Chronicles of Dave to Kindle Unlimited. It's a simple, if unscientific, AB test. I'm curious to compare the results.

The bundle is priced at US $3.99 but I'll be setting it to free for a couple of days at the end of the week, looking to tickle the all powerful algorithm in new and exciting ways. If you haven't got a copy yet, or you only got one of the titles, that'd be the time to hop on and grab your freebie.

What will help, as ever, are reviews. Big, bright 88 star reviews. Even reviews copied and tweaked from the stand-alone editions. When we did that with CAIRO it worked a treat, pushing the book onto new and noteworthy lists, from whence it took off.

You can find The Chronicles of Dave here.

Remember it'll go free on the 7th. For now it's still $3.99

Any help you can give that graceless oaf would be appreciated.

I have slathered your offering in glowing praise. Here's hoping it reaches the stratospheric heights of popularity it deserves, and drains the Bank of Bezos dry in royalties. Good luck my master.

I have also posted a review of Charles Stross's new laundry Files Novel the Nightmare Stacks that gives a recommendation for Dave
"Another excellent chapter in the forever genre mashing Laundry files- this time its urban fantasy. The change in point of view from previous books of Bob Howard to Alex Schwartz has provided a refreshing boost, with plenty of the old gang popping in and out to make loyal readers feel at home. The books have always shifted between horror genres: Nameless terrors from beyond space, deep sea monsters, vampires, government bureaucracies, paper work, IT, zombies, and the ever present end of the world as we know it. This book rides the recent meta narrative zeitgeist of ancient medieval like monsters invading earth through the portals. I you enjoyed John Birmingham's recent monster smashing Dave trilogy and want more -I whole heartily suggest reading The Nightmare Stacks.

His new story did remind me a lot of the Dave's narrative when it came to the cross dimension invasion force.

Been hanging around that Anderle fellow I see. When you described cadaver you had to have met my brother. You described him down those wife. He claims she is a soul sucking demon. As we say in mississippi, ain't got no dog in that fight. But he may be right. I don're mind paying for a good read but I like a book not a short story. I also want to read more about Dave. Now stop p
issing about and get to it.

John Birmingham ducks in to say...
