Broken Vacuum Cleaner & MacKillop

I have two eStories up for download over at my new Smashwords page.

The first is a freebie, the second will rush you 99c (less in the UK thanks to the miracle of dollar/quid conversion), but rest assured that downloading either great, great read will not earmark you for a visit by the Stomach Massaging Angels of Rhummbruddarrah.  You don’t want those guys turning up next to your naked abdomen in the middle of a full stress circuit of your local supermarket, I can tell you.

Here are the details of what’s on offer.

Broken Vacuum Cleaner & MacKillop Series 2 Episode IV: Yuckahula

The universe’s greatest ever investigative duo uncovers a plot to destabilise the Cosmos in a run-down London convenience store.  As booze-crazed alien slugs unleash unspeakable horror and terror, only a combination of MacKillop’s able brain and Broken Vacuum Cleaner’s array of cleaning attachments can hope to save the day.

Download here.

MacKillop and his vacuum cleaner sidekick return for another encounter with danger, this time aboard a battle cruiser heading for nuclear meltdown.  Entombed in an icy hellhole crawling with reptilian space marines, their salvation depends on persuading a megalomaniac overlord to abandon his favourite hobby.

Download here.

Both stories are available in a variety of formats, from pdf to epub to mobi (though as yet, thanks to industrial action by the genius simian community, there’s nothing in braille for your portable chimp savant to chant aloud).

If, after downloading and upreading, you like either of these, do feel free to blog, tweet and holler to your heart’s content.  Rave reviews are welcome, but please bear in mind that if The Rolling Stones should fly their tour jet into a mountain, your diminished capability for hysteria may single you out for suspicion during the inevitable post-Mick wailing and moaning.

Below, I’ve included a recorded version of the opening paragraphs.

I know, I know - that's a short celebration shoutout from me, considering I'm typically long-winded. But it counts, though!

Can't wait to have a read.
