Shadowboxer

This was quite a nice Amazon review for Shadowboxer:



5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing!, July 11, 2011

This review is from: Shadowboxer (Kindle Edition)
I picked up Shadowboxer after reading Fractal Despondency Trent Zelazny's more recent novella. I was definitely not disappointed!

Once again Trent Zelazny's vivid descriptions and story-telling prowess place you right in the heart of the story as you follow the main protagonist; Kealan into the depths of his tortured and damaged soul. After surviving an horrific car accident that left both his wife and son dead, Kealan is stumbling to find his ground again, swimming aimlessly through life with no real direction until a chance encounter at a local coffee shop sparks a renewal. What follows is a fast-paced dynamic story that will grip you and thrill you until the very last word.

Zelazny is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. I can't wait to read his short story collection; The Day the Leash Gave Way and Other Stories

If you're looking for a well-crafted interesting exploration of the human psyche, you won't regret picking up anything written by Trent Zelazny. :)

Princess Whore

As some of you know, my fiance Angelyn passed away last year. I came across this piece of art she did and figured I'd share it.  One of the gazillion reasons I loved her.

Shameless Promotion

What can I say?  I've been told sex sells, so...


No one really knows what sells something.  Sex failed miserably at selling the sewing machine.  Still, I don't mind looking at this.

Fractal Despondency is actually doing well

So, even if it's brief, Fractal Despondency has reached #16 on Amazon's mystery bestseller list. This is a good thing.  Let's see if it can do even better, or at the very least hover in the teens for a while.

Friday, July 1, 2011

Hola and howdy.  So, Fractal Despondency is now available in paperback.  This means the old school folks (myself included) can now get their hands on an actual tangible object with my name on it and my words in it.  It is dedicated to my late fiance, Angelyn, who, as many of you know, passed away in April 2010. This novella is semi autobiographical but I won't tell you which parts.
Reviews so far have been very good.  In my humble opinion, this means you should buy it, which you can do, currently, at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.  All the cool kids are buying it.  Don't you wanna be cool?

Here's what a few have said:


“Powerful and poignant; frightening and moving. A gut-wrenching allegory of self-destruction that progresses with storm force intensity from beginning to end.” Made in DNA

“Trent Zelazny is a skilled weaver of the written word. He guides you down a path of darkness and you follow willingly. His stories haunt you long after you close the book—and you always want more!”  Sarah L. Covert, She Never Slept - News and Reviews

“Obtain Trent Zelazny's Fractal Despondency. It's your only hope of escape. Break out! Read the book!”  John Shirley

Why are you still here?  Order it. Order it now!
