Here’s today’s #MondayMovie Book Trailer Swap:
Rarity from the Hollow (Lacy Dawn Adventure, # 1) by Robert Eggleton
Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy, and satire — a children’s story for adults.
“The abuse in the book is graphic, but the story arc is hopeful: a family recovering and becoming better together.” Publishers Weekly
“A fun, sometimes cleverly-gonzo, and even inspiring tale about an undaunted girl’s close encounter of the weird kind.” David Brin, Award Winning SciFi Author
“Amusing at times, shocking at others, a touching and somehow wonderful SFF read.” Amazing Stories Magazine
“…In the space of a few lines we go from gritty realism to pure sci-fi/fantasy. It’s quite a trip.” The Missouri Review
“Brilliant satires such as this are genius works of literature in the same class as Orwell’s Animal Farm. I can picture American Lit professors some time in the distant future placing this masterpiece on their reading list.” Marcha Fox, Retired NASA Engineer and SciFi Author
“…utterly compelling…a chilling, engaging verisimilitude that deftly feeds on both the utter absurdity of the characters’ motivations and on the progression of the plot…. In the spirit of Vonnegut, Eggleton takes the genre and gives it another quarter turn.” Electric Review / Midwest Book Review
“…a hillbilly version of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy…what I would have thought impossible; taken serious subjects like poverty, ignorance, abuse…tongue-in-cheek humor without trivializing them…profound…a funny book that most sci-fi fans will thoroughly enjoy.” Awesome Indies (Gold Medal)
“…sneaks up you and, before you know it, you are either laughing like crazy or crying in despair, but the one thing you won’t be is unmoved…a brilliant writer.” Readers’ Favorite (Gold Medal)
“The most enjoyable science fiction novel I have read in several years….” Temple Williams, Retired Editor, Reader’s Digest
Robert Eggleton has served as a children’s advocate in an impoverished state for over forty years. He is best known for his investigative reports about children’s programs, most of which were published by the West Virginia Supreme Court where he worked from 1982 through 1997, and which also included publication of models of serving disadvantaged and homeless children in the community instead of in large institutions, research into foster care drift involving children bouncing from one home to the next — never finding a permanent loving family, and statistical reports on the occurrence and correlates of child abuse and delinquency.
Today, he is a recently retired children’s psychotherapist from the mental health center in Charleston, West Virginia, where he specialized in helping victims cope with and overcome physical and sexual abuse, and other mental health concerns. Rarity from the Hollow is his debut novel and its release followed publication of three short Lacy Dawn Adventures in magazines: Wingspan Quarterly, Beyond Centauri, and Atomjack Science Fiction. Author proceeds have been donated to a child abuse prevention program operated by Children’s Home Society of West Virginia.
Robert continues to write fiction with new adventures based on a protagonist that is a composite character of children that he met when delivering group therapy services. The overall theme of his stories remains victimization to empowerment.
