Product Description

Product Description

" 'Say farewell to your siblings, Oberoid scum!' roared Thogron Throatbiter as he leapt from his rocky perch. Somewhere in the background he heard the stage manager inhale sharply... "

Imagine unstoppable barbarian armies that discover spaceflight. After they have conquered every inhabited planet in their system, what then? They take their pantheon of violence, pillage, and destruction to the stars, of course. But one day, their meandering mayhem must reach its inevitable conclusion.

Take the foreign policy approach of Conan the Barbarian, mix with the insanity of Warhammer 40k, and add a dash of Brian Blessed on one of his louder days; now you have an idea of what lies in store for you in the Meandering Mayhem of Thogron Throatbiter.

This Greyhart Press eBook is a short story, a perfect length to enjoy on your lunch break, or to complement a drink in your favorite coffee house.

More About the Author

Tim C. Taylor lives with his family in an old village in England called Bromham. When he was a young and impressionable lad, between 1977 and 1978, several important things happened to him all at once: 2000AD, Star Wars, Blake's 7, and Dungeons & Dragons. Consequently, he now writes science fiction.

Tim's short fiction has been published in a number of magazines, and most recently in Shoes, Ships & Cadavers and Further Conflicts, anthologies that featured classy authors such as Alan Moore, Lauren Beukes, and Dan Abnett. His ambition is that one day, Moore, Beukes, and Abnett will proudly write in their bios that they once shared an anthology with Tim C. Taylor.

It wasn't always that way. Before a series of Doctor Who novels inspired him to start writing fiction in 2002, Tim wrote first music and then software. After twenty years in the software industry, Tim took a break in 2011, setting up Greyhart Press, an eBook publisher of science fiction, horror, and fantasy. While most of his time has been spent publishing other authors, Tim found time to complete his first two novels, a series called The Reality War, published February 2012.

In the real world, he is husband, Dad, sometime-brewer, and oftentimes-builder of Lego constructs to his son's designs. His favourite beer is Uplift Ale, named in honor of SF author David Brin, and available exclusively from his garage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Throatbiting for fun 29 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this is definetely my kind of story, fast-paced, sarcastically funny and based on Brian Blessed at his most bombastic self with a pastiche of Joe Haldemans "the forever war". Well written and easy to read i`ll be looking for more by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is anyone coming with me? 6 Nov 2011
By S. Horrigan TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thogron Throatbiter is a Melai warror. He only lives to fight and in that respect he has a bit of a problem. The Melai have already conquered all the nearby civilisations and there is no one left to fight! His solution? Conquer the rest of the Universe of course! From the totally over the top names of the main characters, to the unexpected effects of relativity on the planet they return to in not exactly triumph, this short science fiction story has its tongue firmly in its cheek.

Overall: 4 stars - I was drawn to this story by the unusual title and I found a worthwhile 20 minute or so read that has me interested enough in the author to search out some of his other works.

Short stories must the most difficult of all books to write, but Tim C Taylor ( note the capital C in the name!), has done well with this book.
An interesting sci-fi yarn with a touch of humour that kept me interested until it's unexpected end.
Well worth the price, (OK I know it's free), but I will certainly be on the lookout for more of Mr Tim "Cee" Taylors books.

3.0 out of 5 stars REPTILIAN VIKINGS IN SPACE. 9 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nice easy read.

Quite an enjoyable romp through space & time as Thogron battles anything with a pulse.

I don't think that I would have paid much for this as it only took an hour or so to read.

Good pacing of the story, it starts off a bit Henry V and soon descends into all out conquest throughout the galaxy with a little if not too obvious twist at the end.
