The First Book:
I really liked Frank Portman’s King Dork when I read it a year or so ago. I’ve recommended it a few friends who have just said, “interesting.” I suspect they liked it too, but don’t have anything to compare it against. I find that happens to readers who spend the majority of their reading time in one genre. King Dork is a wonderful mish-mash of high school and music, lust and literature, quest and fantasy. It’s great! More people should read it.
After finishing the book, I Googled the author, of course. I wanted to know if he’d written anything else. I discovered was that he was a musician (music is a big part of King Dork). There were some song on his website and I eventually ended up downloading one of albums — Love is Dead.
The New Book:
I can’t wait to read the new book, Andromeda Klein. I hope that it is as fresh and funny as King Dork was. I hope that if I like it, I can recommended to people who might not have ordinary picked it up (even if they just say, “interesting”). While the reviews say music won’t be a big part of this book, they are talking about music being part of the promotion.
