"Finn's War" by Nick Snape

This week we are featuring the unstoppable force that is Nick Snape. I read the first chapter from the fourth book in the “Weapons of Choice” series “Finns War.”

Find it here

Nick Snape has been steeped in Science Fiction and Fantasy since his friends first dragged him from his schoolwork and stuck a book under his nose. Lost to the world of imagination he became a teacher by accident though he thoroughly enjoyed developing the joy of reading and writing in his pupils. Having retired after thirty years, he thought it was high time to practise what he preached.

Nick enjoys mountain biking and walking, although the walking part is usually forced upon him after he has fallen off and broken his bike. He enjoys sci-fi on the screen as well as the page and is yet to recover from a certain Malcolm Reynolds not getting a second season.  

In other news

My author friend Adam Gaffen will be launching the sequel to “The Ghosts of Tantor” later this year, so he would love some additional reviews and ratings on the first book.
