I’m chewing my heart out in envy. The other day she gets this neat video review, today she’s up in lights at a cool online science fiction magazine. What next?!
I told you these “Awesome Indies” were awesome 🙂
I’m told Dell Zero is going on sale today for a promotional period (99 cents). They usually drop the price by the afternoon some time, so be sure to check.
Sneak peak at this great review:
IF LITERARY THEMES ARE a sign of the times, dystopian fiction may be the canary in our coal mine. Stories celebrating social harmony and scientific advances are scarce as hen’s teeth, but the market explodes with cautionary tales that show our own society reflected in a futuristic dystopia. I don’t know if this signifies that most readers already feel we’re living in a bad (dys) place (topia). I do know it’s hard to find authentic characters in a compelling story no matter what the genre. In a field full of Brave New Knock-Offs, “Dell Zero” by Carol Ervin kicks all kinds of hindquarters.
Who is Dell Zero?

Thanks for the mention, John!
Don’t mention it! haha — witty.
Must Confess: I stole the line “Carol Ervin kicks all kinds of hindquarters” from John L Monk!
I stole those words from the dictionary, so we’re even 😉
By way of atonement, I did my best to give you credit for this one: Anthropologist Clifford Geertz said man “is an animal suspended in webs of significance he himself has spun.” Author John L. Monk expands on that: “Ervin’s dellzerodystopian world should appeal to anyone who’s ever sat in morning traffic, chained in insignificance, dreaming about that first cup of coffee and wishing it was something like Vita-sat.”
Hehe, you’re giving me credit for crediting Clifford Geertz. The internet will now explode. Ty Carol 🙂
Oops, how do I edit that? Ervin’s dellzerodystopian world — meh!
