#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?

The police are going to arrive any minute now and you know who’s going to get the blame, so I really need a good escape plan. Any ideas?

If I don’t get off this planet very soon, I could be stuck here forever, and I don’t like the way that alien is looking at me. If I’m not very careful, I’m going to end up dancing with aliens and being expected to save a world; and then I‘ll get that thing in my head and...

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.

I have to admit that I've spent most of my adult life not actually writing; life has a talent for getting in the way.

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.
