Part 39 written today. An event in this episode made me feel very sad!
There will be 50 parts in total, around 100,000 words (which is quite long for DFL).

You can read it for free:

I've removed the intrusive introduction to the novel at the suggestion of several readers.

FINISHED!

There you will find fifty links to the complete THE HAWLER I.Nemonymous Navigation. II. Nemonymous Night plus 'coda'.


As great as GULLIVER'S TRAVELS! :-)

Writing is either (a) writing for writing's sake or (b) writing for the best market/money or award.

(a) and (b) shouldn't mix at the intention stage, though they hopefully can (as an accidental optimum) mix at the recipient stage. IMHO.

I've had a measure of success over the years with (a), sometimes with (a) and (b) together. However, I 've chosen my first novel at the age of 58 (great or crap as it eventually may be in interface with stage (b)) to be read freely on the internet because I can only see it as stage (a) at the moment and perhaps forever.


It's been serialised on a blog since some time in September (I actually started writing it in June) ... and I estimate the total wordage to be 100,000.

Its *nature* as a novel derives from the very act of immediate serialisation. (A bit like Dickens did?). That's one reason for doing it this way. The other is the sincere belief that nobody will publish it except myself. Which begs a lot of questions - many of which I've not yet faced.

A third reason for doing it this way: its fiction deals with or is inspired by current issues *currently*!

I hope you enjoy it in its current form.

Anyone who does a review of THE HAWLER (good or bad review) in an independent outlet (online or print) will receive -- as a thank you and because you wouldn't be getting a tangible reviewer's copy of THE HAWLER -- either
1) a full signed set of Nemonymous 1-5 OR
2) a signed beautiful edition of WEIRDMONGER (The Nemonicon),
until stocks last.

PLease talk to me in advance about where you intend to place your review, and I should be able to let you have the above BEFORE you embark on the project of reading and reviewing THE HAWLER.

THE HAWLER:

My address: nemonymous@hotmail.com

Don't forget, it naturally has to be what you genuinely think of THE HAWLER! :-)
