Bad Imitation Hemingway

Bad Imitation Hemingway.

It was midnight. So this is how it is, this is how it always happens in the midnight. Obscenity your midnight. With my last 50 Euro, I purchased some true and honest Rum; I took a pull from the bottle. It was good. It burned my mouth and felt good and warm going down my esophagus and into my stomach. From there it went to my kidneys and my bladder, and was good. I remembered then when I last saw Stephen King who was still a damn fine writer. It was in Paris and we looked out the windows at the rolling hills and drank Rum in the midnight. It was midnight and had been midnight for some time.

I loved Hemmingways the Old Man Of The Sea. I am a usual work day drink at night man. My mates and I would always on weekends go out in the car, and be off cruising the coast roads so I could go spear fishing. They would always rib me saying "The old man of the sea."
I have written a novel called Doom Of The Shem.
This novel is a science fiction story that uses a military theme to bring out a gritty futuristic war chronicle, it is easy to read. I have created a small mini environment and it grows on readers as the situation deepens. I think any person who likes science fiction writing and the whole alien species who clash will enjoy this book. It is an in depth view of war with many hand to tentacle fight scenes and various comical twists here and there through the plot which help to develop the characters and their personalities.
