The Eighteen Revenges of Doctor Milan is my latest science fiction novella, a bloody revenge tale in the style of oldschool Moorcock and Alfred Bester. The protagonist, Cezar, is a survivor of a brutal mutiny aboard a colony starship. Now he's making his way into the massive prison colony called The Pike on a mission to kill the person responsible for the mutiny: the warden himself. It's about lost love, betrayals, Buddhism and karma, monsters in the dark, prison politics, and murder.

I know everyone's reading lists are packed full after Christmas, but if there's anyone who'd like a copy of The Eighteen Revenges in exchange for an honest review on Amazon or Goodreads, just drop me a line. Take care!

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

Pleased as punch to see four four-star reviews up on The Eighteen Revenges already! In summary:

"Both violent and thoughtful, the novella explores deep themes while kicking ass and crunching skulls. Ruz has got something really cool here."
"The 18 Revenges of Doctor Milan is a dark fantasy sci-fi thriller filled with interesting themes... thrilling from start to finish."
"Eighteen Revenges is a dark, visceral story with a similarly dark, visceral anti-hero lead character who reminds me strongly of Riddick (of the Pitch Black and Escape from Butcher Bay variety). The setting and backdrop is well-developed, the plot gripping and the writing exceptionally tight...for the price of a couple of small coffees (or one, larger, expensive coffee) I'd definitely recommend it."

If any of those are from KB readers, thank you so much!

Was ecstatic to see a fresh review for The Eighteen Revenges pop up this morning:

"As usual, the real star here is Ruz's prose style, which puts to shame almost any author I've come across, traditionally published or not. While some of the characters aren't quite as fleshed-out as in Ruz's other work, the tight plot and well-paced action more than make up for that, and at novella length this is a great pick for sci-fi fans who like to absorb a story in only a few sittings.
Rating: Four microwave-cooked intestines (yum) out of five."
