More About the Author

With over fifty titles published since 2005, British writer Ed Page (or Edwin Page as he's known to readers of his serious fiction and non-fiction) is one of the most prolific authors of the early 21st Century. Having written in at least four non-fiction genres and eight fiction genres, he is also one of the most diverse.

Ed wrote his first two books in 1995 and both were comedy-science fiction novels. Though they were not of a publishable standard, it is this genre that remains his first love when it comes to writing. 'The stories write themselves,' states Mr Page, 'and the comedy arises naturally as the characters take on a life of their own.' It his characters that make Ed's work so compelling, each one drawing the reader in as they embark on crazy adventures, quests and wild travels. The fact he writes his books without any advance planning, allowing them to 'write themselves' in a state of Flow, means that his work has a natural and organic feel that appeals to many readers.

As well as humorous fiction, Mr Page also writes jokes for the greetings card industry. In this capacity, he works for companies such as Hallmark and you may have even bought a birthday card with one of his jokes on it.

If you want to see the scale and range of his other books, take a look at his Edwin Page author page on Amazon. There you'll find a wide range of dark fiction, women's fiction and non-fiction titles available, all written by this intriguing author.

This was a fun read that made me laugh out loud on several occasions. It reminded me of Pratchett's earlier work with a good dose of Douglas Adams thrown into the mix. It's definietly a book that raises a smile or two.

This book is a bundle of laughs wrapped around a simple but entertaining plot. Theres a lot of weird and wonderful characters and some very funny moments. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

Badly written, mis-spelt rubbish. I persevered for a couple of chapters and gave up.

The blurb said if I liked Pratchett I'd like this. It was wrong, Pratchett can write.

Tried but did not succeed 4 May 2013
By Patricia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It seemed to me that Ed Page was trying very hard to emulate Terry Pratchett or Douglas Adams and I fear he fails. I actually deleted this book from my Kindle after reading because reading it one time was painful enough I knew I would never want to read it again. Sorry. I really wanted this book to be great.

Just right 2 April 2013
By Rupert Grafendorfer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I came across this book by accident (well, amazon recommended it ;-) ).
I like Pratchett, Moore, Holt & co. While it's not in the same league as Terry Pratchett or Tom Holt it has a class of it's own.

I very much like Page's style. Easy to read, funny, never boring. And definitely very inventive and creative.
Love it.

A most entertaining read. 9 Mar. 2013
By Kim Schoubye - Published on Amazon.com

With a title like "Lukewarm Bathwater or Apocalypse" one could not but be interested in seeing what this book has to offer.
As a die-hard fantasy reader in my youth, I rather enjoy a good, well-crafted send-up of that genre. When one spends ones formative years OD'ing on works by R.A.Salvatore and others of his ilk, this kind of book is a must-read. Anyone who has ever read a fantasy novel will like this book. There is but one small and yet annoying aspect of this book that should be addressed. The format. I bought the Kindle version and it is in a double-spaced line format, which makes it a little irritating to read. So to those who published it, please correct it. I am an English teacher and, as I was reading the novel, I felt constantly reminded of the big pile of essays I was supposed to be grading, all of which are double-spaced and not remotely as entertaining.
Ooo... i made a joke! 29 April 2014
By Joonas Joensuu - Published on Amazon.com

Not sure why I bothered after reading the preview, perhaps I hoped it would get better. Granted, there are some nice ideas in the book and yes, it's comic fantasy so one shouldn't take it too seriously. Thus I'm not critizising the plot but the onslaught of less-that-funny jokes that makes the author seem like a failing stand up comedian who laughs hysterically at his own jokes and is genuinely surprised when the audience isn't laughing (even to the point of exclaiming: "Look! I made a joke here! You're supposed to laugh! It's funny because the Vicar was already married!").

A lot of toning down on the number of jokes, skipping explaining them and losing breaking the fourth wall (the author does not have the literary skill to pull it off properly and it really doesn't give the novel any extra value) would make this a better book.

It's very unlikely that I will read more stuff from this author.
Lukewarm...? 12 July 2013
By J. Way - Published on Amazon.com

This was a combo of irreverence at it's best, crass visual imagery and skewed characters... what a blast to read!!! Loved it, loved it, loved it!
