    ESCAPE FROM THE COMMODORE 64

     

    Growing up in the 80s is a chore for Sarah, who feels misunderstood by her parents and badgered by Rhys, her brother who incessantly prattles on about his computer games. When Rhys tells her one of the games tried to pull him inside the computer, she waggles the joystick to disprove his fairytale and is pulled into the computer. Now she's trapped in games she’d never had any interest in playing.

     

    Can Sarah find her way back home or is it game over? An evil madman, a hostile planet, bloodthirsty robots, a never-ending throng of karate experts and relentless digital soldiers will do their best to ensure she never escapes.

    RUMINATIONS OF A WAYFARER - REBOOT

    Their aim is nothing short of universal domination by means of war. So far their plans have not gone astray and they enjoy victory after victory over the 'lesser' life forms of the galaxies. But now, an insignificant human threatens to upend the grand strategy of the Tharnian species...his name is Jarre.

     

    In a twist and turn accounting of his stubborn fight against the all-consuming race of destroyers, Jarre's exploits are time and again suborned by more backstabbing characters than you will find in a meeting of butlers at a mystery convention.

     

    Just when you think you have a handle on which way the plot will proceed, be prepared for a sharp, warp-speed turn in the opposite direction. ORDER

This time, I made a stop in the confectionary isle and grabbed a couple of Whistle Pops and a packet of Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs.Making my way to the counter, I expected the boys to be waiting for me...
    Marching up to the counter in K-Mart, two teenage boys spotted and tracked me as I made my way to the computer counter.I found it mildly amusing as they tripped over themselves in a battle to be the one to serve me. In the end, they both greeted me, neither prepared to acquiesce to the other....
    Four years earlier, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, a balding, stocky man in suit chomping on a cigar practised his smile as he prepared to meet patrons who would love his Commodore 64 computers no end.This was it!
