Hotspur Publishing is proud to announce release of “Eat Fish And Die”, on Amazon Kindle. This is a hilarious Mil SF by Saul Garnell, and the inspiration behind Saul’s next upcoming novel, VOODOO ROBOT CHILI.
Stuck on a small planetoid, we find Major Joachim Merlot. He’s the military equivalent of a street sweeper, defending Earth against an alien race of stinking fish-like creatures. Merlot wasn’t interested in being any kind of hero- he just wants to return home and see who won the office pool. His odds of making it back alive were only one in sixteen, but that didn’t matter. He was issued one handy dandy Battle Ready Android with the fire power of an entire platoon. The only problem? Don’t let that Android think too much. Too much thinking, you see, can upset it. But there’s the rub. Since everyone thinks most of the time, how can you figure out when it’s too much?
