I was culling spammers to trim my inflated Twitter Follower count (a trimming I hadn’t done in months) and from time to time I’d pop up someone’s profile to have a peek.
One person following me was Joe Tripician and I saw this tweet …
… which was like bait to me. How could I not click through?
It led me to Amazon’s Kindle Store and this:
Balkanized at Sunrise: How a Sci-Fi Author Was Recruited to Keep a President from a War Crimes Indictment
OK, with a title like that, there was no way I was not going to grab the free Kindle sample.
I got it and opened it to check the formatting. Then I started to read and it was like the facehugger in the movie Alien: It. Wouldn’t. Let. Go.
The sample was short and I complained about that. So Joe sent me to Smashwords where there was a longer sample.
I started to read that — and interrupted it because I had to do this post.
When I download samples from the Kindle Store, I don’t do a post about them because the sample is my Books To Check reminder for later.
This book just made me break that rule.
Now go have a look.
I have to finish reading the longer sample now.
