Jeder kennt einen Typen wie Hal Spacejock. Er gehört zu den Leuten, die ihren Rohrbruch selbst beheben und dabei das Nachbarhaus überfluten. Kaum auszudenken, was geschieht, wenn er sich ein 200-Tonnen-Raumschiff kauft – und nicht allzu gut mit der Steuerung umgehen kann. Wegen des Schiffs ist Hal bis über beide Ohren verschuldet und muss daher mit einem nervigen Roboter namens Klunk einen heiklen Auftrag annehmen. Und dabei ausgerechnet das kost...

It's been a while, but I've been spending my time writing novels instead of blog posts. Since the last update I've released Hal Junior 3: The Gyris Mission, and now Hal Spacejock 6: Safe Art. Full details on the Hal Spacejock website: http://www.spacejock.com.au/Hal6.html ...

Hal Spacejock zieht Probleme an wie das Sternenlicht die Weltraummotten. Ihm macht nicht nur eine extrem hinterlistige Passagierin zu schaffen, sondern auch seine eigene Selbstüberschätzung. Und sein Leichtsinn. Und seine Sorglosigkeit. Als Hal mit seinem Schiff versehentlich durch ein Portal in eine völlig fremde Galaxie gerät, sind seine Überlebenschancen gleich Null. Auch sein treuer Roboter Klunk ist keine Hilfe. Doch Hal wirft den Laser nich...

I'm writing and releasing Hal Spacejock 7 in ten installments of roughly 7000 words (4 chapters) each. Parts 1-5 (the first half of the book) are already available on Amazon and Kobo. When part ten is published I'll release the entire thing as a single novel, as per Hal Spacejock books 1-6.

I write fun books for adults and funnier books for kids. Or vice versa.

When I'm not mangling words I mangle source code instead: I'm the designer & programmer behind yWriter, free novel-writing software for Windows.
