New Release: “A Way Of Life” by Theo Engela


As some of you might know, I’ve been keeping a promise I made to my Dad many years ago – that I would one day publish his three novels. I have been working hard to keep that promise, and have taken off the last few months from my own writing to do so – his collection of short stories “African Assignment“, and his third and last novel “Shakandazu Valley” have already been published, and today it’s my privilege to announce the release of his very first novel, “A Way Of Life” by Theo Engela.

Written in 1965, this novel was never published. It was his first novel, and it focuses on alcoholism and the struggle of the main character with it. The story is brilliantly written, and describes this way of life with dramatic and upsetting realism, for the alcoholic and those who love them.

Fun Fact: All About Crabbygrass


Crabby-grass is a native plant-like animal form native to the planet Deanna, being essentially an animal which has developed remarkably plant-like characteristics. These characteristics enable crabbygrass to blend in remarkably well with ordinary grass and help it to all but disappear into wild grass and even urban lawns.

Crabby-grass has stalk and leaf-like appendages, and even grows seasonal flowers, by which it reproduces by means of wind or insect pollination, and sometimes, even by direct contact with its partners. The creatures generally resemble clumps of thick, green grass – making them appealing, unfortunately, to herbivorous creatures. The creature’s flowers develop into seed-pods, which can be made to rattle when the creature becomes angry and shakes them, usually as a warning. More
