Product Description

Product Description

In the tradition of Asimov, Heinlein, H.G. Wells, and Lewis Carroll; Elgon Williams has created a universe where imagination rules and reality is not what it seems.

Leave your world behind and enter an adventure forever lost but never forgotten. Where only magic is real, and anything is possible.

When Brent Woods, a middle-aged computer technician delivers a new computer system to an eccentric woman who lives in a strange house with no windows, she offers to reconnect him with his childhood dreams and fantastic imagination. Alongside his best friend Lucy, Brent explores the seemingly infinite possibilities of the “Inworld” where she lives, a place where everything about anything can change with a thought. Nevertheless, in the process of remembering his past as Carlos, Lord of Bartoul in the Interrealm, Brent exposes a dark potential that threatens his family and his life as he knows it.

When his youngest daughter is attacked in her dreams by the same forces that took away his kingdom, and Lucy’s. Brent seeks answers that lie somewhere in the truth of what happened in his past, and how he lost his connection to the Interrealm. He must find a way to correct his mistakes and solve the puzzle of his best friend’s life.

Fried Windows: In a Light White Sauce is an unforgettable journey into imagination—a feast of delightful characters whose perspective of their worlds will change the way you think about yours—forever.

About the Author

Born in Springfield, Ohio, Elgon Williams was given a name hardly anyone knows how to pronounce. L-gun is the best phonetic rendering. His father's farm was near the town of South Charleston in rural southeastern Clark County, roughly two miles from nowhere and wedged between cornfields. Anywhere closer to a big city seemed a better place to live. Having spent much of his adult life living close to cities, currently he has a different perspective.

To the great relief of parents, teachers, and fellow students, he graduated on schedule from Shawnee High School in 1974. While in high school he became interested in creative writing and journalism, which he studied at Purdue University. In the summer of '79, in the midst of a major economic crisis and the height of the gas shortages, he hitched a U-Haul trailer to a gas-guzzling '76 Monte Carlo and moved his worldly belongings to Austin where he spent a couple of years studying Marketing Administration at the University of Texas.

Following college he relocated to Florida's west coast and worked for a small advertising agency by day and a grocery store by night. Seeing no career potential in what he was doing, he joined the U.S. Air Force in early 1983. For forty-seven weeks he studied Chinese Mandarin at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California. Upon completion of his training, Williams worked in Asia until the fall 1986. While in Korea, he served a secondary role, as unit historian publishing what was technically his first book. Due to the security classification of the 400-page unit history very few people ever read it, though it did win an award.

He returned home to civilian life and sold computer software for a while as a telemarketer before beginning his long career in retail management working for several major retailers between 1987 and 2012.

Working in management by day and writing by night, Williams finished his first novel, One Over X ,in 2000. It was a project begun as a creative writing assignment for a class at Purdue in January 1977. Although his early writing is categorized as sci-fi and fantasy, it is difficult to assign any genre to his fiction. A number of his stories are historical, loosely based on childhood experiences. His many published works can be found on his Amazon author's page.

More About the Author

Born in Springfield, Ohio, Elgon Williams grew up on a farm near the town of South Charleston and the village of Selma in rural southeastern Clark County, "...about two miles from nowhere and between cornfields."

Williams graduated from Shawnee High School in 1974. In the fall of that year he began studies at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, receiving a BA in Mass Communication. Later in 1981 he received a degree in Marketing Administration from The University of Texas in Austin.

In 1983 joined the US Air Force and attended the Defense Language Institute at the Presidio of Monterey in California where he studied Chinese Mandarin. Upon completion of military training he spent two years in the Far East.

Upon returning to the US and leaving the military Williams began a long career in management working for several major retailers. Periodically, he also served as a vendor advocate for a national marketing firm representing many computer technology and software companies in retail outlets. He has also worked in advertising, sales and as a computer technician and technology consultant.

Although his early writing was categorized as sci-fi and fantasy, it is difficult to fit his work into any single genre. His most recent work is urban fantasy.

Fried Windows (In a Light White Sauce)

With a strong and unique voice, Elgon Williams easy style of writing makes this book a gratifying read. Once started, you immediately know you’re in for a treat. The story is well written and extremely clever. Elgon creates unforgettable characters in a richly detailed world—a place where everything can change with a thought, and where anything is possible. The plot twists and turns, keeping you eagerly turning the pages as you’re taken on an unforgettable journey into imagination.

The beauty of this book is that it’s about ordinary people and is sewn through with human emotions which affect us all. I found Fried Windows delightfully absorbing, fascinating and entertaining—storytelling at its most compelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imagination unleashed 28 May 2014
By Jeff Messick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Fried Windows (In a Light White Sauce) is about as close to unexpected as you can get. This story is tremendously well written and fiendishly clever in its subtle transition from childhood fascination with imagination to things muck darker and complex later on. The main character, Brent, walks in two worlds and his actions and adventures in the present and the past, threaten his existence in both worlds. Knowledge is power and, to start with, Brent is powerless. He gains knowledge quickly, finding that he doesn’t know enough and there is a whole new side to himself that he needs to remember. Though, it just might be that Brent himself is a memory that was lost, or being recaptured. The ending points straight at a sequel, which I will eagerly await.

Personally, there are two things I take away from this read. One is the author’s transition throughout the story from the character’s wonderment at a land of imagination existing. From this standpoint, the darkness of the plot that comes later is simply stunning because the pacing is consistent and even though the reader will sense the shift, it’s so carefully done that the transition is still a surprise.

Secondly, Brent is a devoted Dad. When the beasties dare attack his daughter, the gloves come off. Anyone that adds so much detail to the tough job of being a Dad gets huge marks in my book. Awesome job from Elgon Williams, a new favorite in my must read author section.

5.0 out of 5 stars Craziness! 28 May 2014
By Stephanie E. Post - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This books is an absolute imaginative whirlwind. It's way outside of the genre I normally read, but fantasy and magical realism readers will feel right at home. The story pushes boundaries and is sure to make you think with its mind-bending setting and plot and reality-questioning situations.This book is about as far from safe and mundane as you can get. So if you want to escape into a landscape of dreams (both good and bad) and leave the normal world behind for a while, "Fried Windows" is certainly for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read that will keep the reader on their toes 5 July 2014
By Carl Hackman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
When computer technician, Brent, makes a delivery to a strange address he finds himself in a world where anything is possible; a world where your imagination is the only limitation to what you can do. He meets a forgotten friend, Lucy and she places a seed of a memory into his mind about his previous existance where he was Carlos, Lord of Bartoul.

The story is a roller coaster of a journey to remember his past, repair the connection his friend, Lucy had with the Outworld and save the children from beasties of the night. To do this he must remember all the facets of his life, both past, present, in Outworld and also Inworld.

This is a great story, woven with skillful imagination with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader on their toes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Step into the mind of Elgon Williams 12 Jun 2014
By upontheroof - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm convinced after reading this that Elgon Williams mind is an adventureland all to itself. Fried Windows is an adventure through the mind of Brent and features him living and thinking not only in the real world, but his dream worlds as well. There's lots to think about and we as the reader are challenged a little bit, which I really liked. I don't want to include spoilers in the review, but I will say, I found this book extremely entertaining, had a good pace, never really slowed down and just super enjoyable.
