Oh bugger. I stopped reading at page three.
Not because it wasn’t good. Because there’s only fifteen pages — and already I knew I wanted to go on and rip through the rest of the damned book. The book that isn’t there.
If you have more self-restraint and can stand to read a sample — no, the all-important first — chapter of a book and simply consider it like, say, a movie trailer, and can muster the patience to wait for the book (where you will read the first chapter for a second time!), then go ahead and sample what will be all over bookstores just next week.
That’s a PDF link, by the way.
Mark my words: Eillis’s comics work will come to a halt. He will be a novelist after next week.
