Corrosion: Just A Taste

The first 80 minutes are free, but they tell a complete story from start to finish.  Reading this audio book the first time was a real pleasure – I’d already bought and read it before the call came down – and I like to think that my reading adds a little something to the tale.  There are a number of subtle threads woven through the entire book that I was able to bring out a little bit more in the reading,  A few of them I only noticed in my second read through!  There are probably other subtle winks and nods that went over my head.

The drama of this book’s release made it seem like a gimmick book.  Regardless of whether it was a gimmick that inspired Kalsi to put this book to ink, the results are anything but.  A surprisingly sophisticated look at the slow devolution of complex systems, and man’s ability to survive and adapt in the face of civilizational collapse, there are lessons to be learned here that go well beyond a well-deserved poke in a blowhard author’s eye.  Don’t let the impetus fool you – this book is the real deal.

Give it a listen, and you’ll see.

About Jon Mollison

Jon Mollison was weaned at the literary knee of Tolkein, Howard, Moore, and Burroughs. He spent decades wandering in the wilderness of modern genre fiction, wondering when the magic and wonder went out of the world of dragons and space ships. In his darkest hour, he encountered a wise man who handed him the open secrets to crafting works that emulate the stories of the great authors who built the genre. They are easily summarized in but two words: Regress Harder. Now one of the twelve champions of the Pulp Revolution, his self-published works represent a more direct lineage to the tales of action, mystery, romance, virtue, and pure unalloyed adventure than the bland imitations churned out by New York City publishing houses in recent decades.
