eMergent Publishing has organized a giveaway for The Machine Who Was Also A boy. It’s got three days to run so hop on over and put your name down.
It’s written by two aussie authors, Mike McRae of Tribal Science: Brains, Beliefs and Bad Ideas fame and Tom Dullemond, whose past works include: The Complete Guide to Writing Fantasy: Volume One and a short work in From Stage Door Shadows .
Pandora Robinson was confused. What made a belief true or false? What gave words their meaning? And was a lie still a lie if you truly believed it? Sometimes the world just didn’t make a lot of sense.
Answering questions at school was hard enough, but after meeting a most peculiar mechanical man and his silent young companion, Pandora faces the hardest question ever. Are we the same person today as we were yesterday?
From the lair of the Sphinx to the bowels of The Theseus, clues to the answer abound, but will Pandora be able to put them together in time to save an unlikely friend and still make it to court in time to stop them taking her away from her Dad.
The Machine Who Was Also A Boy is a middle school tale of puzzles, paradoxes and perplexing predicaments.
