New 5 star review of ‘Whingeblade’ on Amazon – ‘Fun and refreshing’

Thank you ‘bec’ for your very kind review…

Fun and refreshing….. May 11, 2013

By bec
Format:Kindle Edition

How wonderful to find an author with some truly new ideas, this book is gripping from the very first paragraph. Fantasy type fiction, yes, of course, but cleverly avoiding recycling the same old themes.

This book is full of familiar patterns and comfortable stories but with wild new twists that provide constant delight.

And now he’s riding onto your Blu-Ray player (at least in his Alan Ladd incarnation) on June 4th 1953 in time to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of George Stevens’ classic western movie based on my favourite western novel of all time – ‘Shane’ by Jack Schaefer, published in 1949.

Today is the birthday of my first literary hero, Jack Schaefer, author of ‘Shane’.

One of my first cinematic memories stems from seeing George Steven’s movie adaptation of the great Jack Schaefer western novel, Shane at the Gaumont cinema in Wolverhampton in 1953 with my father.  I vividly recall being startled by the uncharacteristically loud gunshots when Alan Ladd demonstrated his gunfighting prowess to the hero-worshipping, Joey, played by Brandon DeWilde.  Only years later did  I learn that Stevens had deliberately intended the sounds to be disturbing and had used a recording of a howitzer being fired into a bucket for the sound effect.  I loved that movie like no other before or since.

Some years later I read the novel for the first of many, many times and, at once, discovered both a literary hero and a model for my upcoming manhood.

Thank you, Jack Schaefer and thank you, Shane.
