The John Quentin website has emerged from its lockdown!
With a totally new look and with new books to check out, the website has emerged from its own version of lockdown inactivity and is looking forward to resuming close contact with people – just like we’re all hoping can happen soon with the other lockdown.
Until we can all emerge fully from that one there are, fortunately, some reading distractions to keep our minds active. The perfect example is Ex Libris. Ironically, it’s about book-burning! If you liked Ray Bradbury’s 1953 classic Fahrenheit 451, then you’re sure to enjoy Ex Libris. If you’ve never heard of either of them before, then that’s two distractions to help take your mind off lockdown! And comparing and contrasting the two of them will provides you with a bonus additional distraction.
There’s also The Galathea Legacy to look forward to. If you are bothered by plastic pollution in any form, then this is a must read. If you are bothered by what is being done about plastic pollution, then this is a must read. If you like intrigue with action, compelling locations and characters, if you like to come away from a book better informed than when you started it…. in fact, if you just like reading, then The Galathea Legacy is a must read. While you’re sat on the edge of your seat waiting for it to be published, why not check out a couple of the real classics that touch on and address some of the same issues – The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton alludes to some chilling possibilities whereas Mutant 59 by Kit Pedlar and Gerry Davies addresses the issue head on. Then – another bonus – you can compare and contrast them both with The Galathea Legacy.
Even after lockdown, there’s no better distraction from the new, resumed or old normal than a good read. If you’re looking for the right distraction, John Quentin has three for you: Fourth World Man, Ex Libris and The Galathea Legacy.
