An unexpected post-holiday pleasure was finding a copy of Damien M Love’s Like Clockwork waiting for me at Bookwitch Towers. I didn’t know there were plans to make the ebook into a ‘real’ book.
But here it is. (Sorry about the shine. It’s not the book. It’s me. I was so happy to see it.)
With no prompting at all the Resident IT Consultant started reading it (it’s not as if he’s not had the ebook at his fingertips all this time) and totally unprompted – again – he professed to like it a lot.
So, perhaps you too should see if you would like it a lot? I gather it’s print-on-demand, so demand away!
The paper book has the same illustrations, and here the Resident IT Consultant was simply too nerdy. They are meant to look like that, and yes we know the train is all wrong. And so is the bus. That’s the whole point. (I knew this, but I still checked, so now I know I’m right. It’s art. Or something.) Anachronistic.
Like Clockwork is also up for the First Book Award at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, coming soon to an Edinburgh near you. You could vote for it. In fact, so can I. I will do it now.
