about

 

     Halley’s Casino is set in 1986. 26-year old Nebula Yorker (Neb to his friends), is patiently awaiting the return of Halley’s Comet. He is about to discover that the world is not what it seems.

 

   Upon the arrival of Halley’s Comet, Neb is confronted by a mysterious stranger who literally swoops out of the night sky. What happens next will change the course of Neb’s life and that of all he befriends.

  

This stranger (Mr. Tict) reveals to Neb that Halley’s is not a comet at all, but an Intergalactic Casino that has been posing as a comet for countless years. Mr. Tict is the Concierge of the Casino and he has come back to Earth to recruit Neb as his assistant.

 

   What happens next is an eye-opening experience for young Neb that no one on Earth can imagine. It can only be explained by watching old Star Trek reruns, while eating cheese sandwiches and drinking hot chocolate. From androids with attitude to a vast assortment of alien beings and historic individuals, with a touch of time travel from ancient Babylon to 1757 London and back to Rome of 12 BCE, Neb soon learns that his past, present and future have always lain in the stars above.

  

It’s a rock and roll ride chock full of chaos, a formidable nemesis, drama, satire, humour, death and new beginnings, with revelations that Neb never saw coming.

 

  Even John Lennon is amused!

 

  Starting out on a quiet evening of star gazing, Nebula Yorker finds himself caught up in the most extraordinary time travel and planet saving adventure of a lifetime.

  And that’s only the beginning of what is to come.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Halley's Casino an awesome read Halley's Casino is a great read I really enjoyed it! It has everything and more I like in Sci Fi , time travelling back into Earth's with real historic people, I had to google a few to make there they existed and they did! Cool aliens that look like humans but are not (spoilers) A villain that the author really made me hate, I mean really hate And not to forget the hero, Neb who's every step had me wondering where and how it was all going to end. I would be amiss not to mention the Rock n Roll elements of the story (spoilers) someone should tell the Rolling Stones! Looking forward to the next installment to find out where Neb will take me and you next. I am recommending Halley’s Casino to all my friends to read.
