With respect to the story’s treatment of tough social issues, this reviewer said: “If I could, I would give it all the stars in the universe…I was hesitant to accept. I usually do not read or review books that discuss child abuse or domestic violence; however, I was intrigued by the excerpt and decided to give it a shot. I am glad that I took a risk; otherwise, I would have missed out on a fantastic story with a bright, resourceful, and strong protagonist that grabbed my heart and did not let go.” — http://www.onmykindle.net/2015/11/rarity-from-hollow.html

12346331_863473790438062_8755479226731204584_nRarity from the Hollow was referred to as a hillbilly version of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and awarded a Gold Medal by Awesome Indies: “…Tucked between the folds of humor are some profound observations on human nature and modern society that you have to read to appreciate…it’s a funny book that most fans of sci-fi will thoroughly enjoy.” — http://awesomeindies.net/ai-approved-review-of-rarity-from-the-holl…

Lacy Dawn’s father relives the Gulf War, her mother’s teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in The Hollow isn’t great. But Lacy has one advantage — she’s been befriended by a semi-organic, semi-robot who works with her to cure her parents. He wants something in exchange, though. It’s up to her to save the Universe.

To prepare Lacy for her coming task, she is being schooled daily via direct downloads into her brain. She doesn’t mind saving the universe, but her own family and friends come first.

Will Lacy Dawn’s predisposition, education, and magic be enough for her to save the Universe, Earth, and, most importantly, protect her own family?

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy, and satire. It is a children’s story for adults, not for the prudish, faint of heart, or easily offended.

Editorial Reviews of Rarity from the Hollow 

“…In the space of a few lines we go from gritty realism to pure sci-fi/fantasy. It’s quite a trip.” — The Missouri Review

“…utterly compelling…a chilling, engaging verisimilitude that deftly feeds on both the utter absurdity of the characters’ motivations and on the progression of the plot…. In the spirit of Vonnegut, Eggleton takes the genre and gives it another quarter turn.” — Electric Review / Midwest Book Review 

“…a hillbilly version of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy…what I would have thought impossible; taken serious subjects like poverty, ignorance, abuse…tongue-in-cheek humor without trivializing them…profound…a funny book that most sci-fi fans will thoroughly enjoy.” — Awesome Indies (Gold Medal)

“…sneaks up you and, before you know it, you are either laughing like crazy or crying in despair, but the one thing you won’t be is unmoved…a brilliant writer.” —Readers’ Favorite (Gold Medal)

“The most enjoyable science fiction novel I have read in several years….” — Temple Emmet Williams, Author, Retired Reader’s Digest Editor

“…There is much here worthy of high praise…Eggleton reminds me very much of Robert Heinlein at his peak….” — SF Crowsnest 

“…Good satire is hard to find and science fiction satire is even harder to find.” — The Baryon Review 

“…psychologically disturbing at a different level to what I have seen before….” — The Reading Rose

“…laugh-out-loud funny at times, satiric of almost everything it touches upon…” — Atomjack Science Fiction Magazine 

“…This piece of speculative fiction is nothing like anything I’ve read before. It faces reality head-on while also pursuing themes that are outlandish… amazed by how the author has aptly mingled tragedy with humor….” — Page Hungry Bookworm 

“…a story with humour and darkness and plenty of twists and turns….” — Splash into Books

“…It is one of those books that if it does not make you think, you are not really reading it….” — On My Kindle

About the Author

1441239_764921206959988_3528137193144954202_nRobert Eggleton has served as a children’s advocate in an impoverished state for over forty years. He is best known for his investigative reports about children’s programs, most of which were published by the West Virginia Supreme Court where he worked from 1982 through 1997, and which also included publication of models of serving disadvantaged and homeless children in the community instead of in large institutions, research into foster care drift involving children bouncing from one home to the next — never finding a permanent loving family, and statistical reports on the occurrence and correlates of child abuse and delinquency.

Today, he is a recently retired children’s psychotherapist from the mental health center in Charleston, West Virginia, where he specialized in helping victims cope with and overcome physical and sexual abuse, and other mental health concerns. Rarity from the Hollow is his debut novel and its release followed publication of three short Lacy Dawn Adventures in magazines: Wingspan Quarterly, Beyond Centauri, and Atomjack Science Fiction. Author proceeds have been donated to a child abuse prevention program operated by Children’s Home Society of West Virginia. http://www.childhswv.org/ Robert continues to write fiction with new adventures based on a protagonist that is a composite character of children that he met when delivering group therapy services. The overall theme of his stories remains victimization to empowerment.

Jeffrey Poston has added two significant African-American fiction characters to the entertainment world, and hopefully to the big screen sooner rather than later. Hero Jason Peares, forced to survive as an outlaw, and hero Carl Johnson, mistakenly labeled the American Terrorist. Both protagonists represent not just the everyman, but the everyman who looks trouble in the face daily just because of a society plagued by racism. These ordinary men suffer trials and tribulations because of their ethnicity and kick ass anyway.

the collectionWe’ve known and loved movie characters only Samuel L Jackson, Clint Eastwood, Lennie James, and Denzel Washington could truly bring to life—Jeffrey Poston’s two key characters reminded me of the qualities in all these actors that made those movie personalities real. As I read, Lenny James was the face of Carl Johnson and a cross between Samuel, Denzel, and Clint was the face of Jason Peares. It would be an injustice to movie lovers far and wide not to get these books into production for the big screen!

What if the police came for YOU?

Untitled designJeffrey Poston has woven an intricate and suspenseful tale with a very realistic view of police use-of-force doctrine and the power of the government in attempting to prevent domestic terror attacks. In his series inspired by his own brush with police brutality, Poston brings visibility to issues behind today’s headlines: police violence, racism, and constant threat of terrorism.

Poston’s books have been well received, garnering 5-star reviews from all corners of the country. Grady Harp, an Amazon Top-100 Hall-of-Fame reviewer, says American Terrorist is “one of the most poignantly important novels about life as we are experiencing it, in the US (and the world), yet encountered. This man writes with the passion of a crusader, but never steps away from allowing his story to speak on its own.”

In an interview, author of best-selling American Terrorist: Where is the Girl Jeffrey Poston said:

“I wrote the novel because ten years ago I was jacked up by police, and for ten years I’ve been dealing with the trauma of that experience. This is a work of fiction, but the perceived violence of police against non-white citizens is a complicated topic. What I’ve tried to capture are the thoughts and feelings and fears of a wanted man trying to deal with the loss of his family, his dignity, and his very reason for living.

“Of course, a good novel needs plenty of action, suspense, and plot twists. So what if an innocent Black man was assaulted by federal cops who take everything from him? What if he goes berserk and decides to do to them what that they did to him? But what if he is the only person in the world who can find a missing child who will surely die if he doesn’t find a way to work with the same police who destroyed his life?” – Read the full Making of American Terrorist at http://jeffreyposton.com/

Head Shot: American Terrorist

Carl Johnson, known as the American Terrorist, takes on today’s most controversial news headline: Police Brutality. While tracking leads to find those responsible for the assassination attempt on America’s first female president, Carl Johnson finds himself in a confrontation with militarized police in a major US city. To protect innocent civilians, Johnson has to defy laws which clearly support the police and government.

This fictitious but heart-wrenching story tackles the complex social issue of Americans versus Americans, and takes a deeper look at who stands to gain from the hardline stance many police units take against protesters. If this topic covered in today’s real news coverage disturbs you, then you won’t want to miss this free short novel, HEAD SHOT. – Sign up on author’s website to reserve your copy, currently in production.
