Updated Blurb

I've updated the blurb for Captain Disaster: The Dark Side of the Moon.  Just felt it was a little lacking before.  This is what I have now:


"Captain Disaster sleep-walks his way onto a moon with a terrible secret. Will he escape the danger, find help from the moon's inhabitants, and manage to endure the many dreadful puns, and manage to get back home?

This short story of 10.5K words is based on the point and click adventure game of the same name, but with a few differences thrown in to make things more interesting, and to include more character interaction. The humour never leaves the page but this is also a story with heart. Fans of classic science fiction books, movies, TV series etc will spot numerous references - some subtle, some less so - including Dr Who, Terrahawks, Star Trek and many others. There are several references that point and click adventure game fans will recognise too.

In summary, ideal readers of this ebook will be sci-fi fans who like a laugh, don't take things terribly seriously and ideally are also fans of the point and click genre. Surely there are some of you around?!"
