#Comedy #Sci-Fi: In Favour of Fools
by John Battle
A PI/SCI-FI/Comedy/Thriller introducing Philip Humphrey Chandler as the socially inept hero who likes beer, coffee and breasts - but not necessarily in that order.
I’m a Private Investigator but I don’t travel, I don’t chase people and I avoid even the idea of violence. So how did I end up on this blazing planet, searching for a man who didn’t want to be found?
And why is he now lying on a hotel bed with an unhealthy looking hole in his chest?

Hi, My name is John Battle and I've been telling stories of one sort or another for nearly fifty years. I started out telling serial stories to my younger brothers and sisters at night. Then I'd write short stories for one of my older sisters to mark.

But, since a pep talk from my son in August 2012, I'm now an everyday writer. When you are not writing, it is easy to forget how much fun it is.
I now have a body of work that I am proud to present to discerning readers. And there is much more to come.
