Romancing Grendel's Mother: Fear & Loathing on the Internet by Mike Knowles
Meet the woman who guided the sinister Trollbuster General as he hunted cyber trolls on a popular pen pan site. Captivated by her ability to flatter an old man, second only to her ability for verbosity, the Trollbuster General threw caution to the winds and embarked on a tempestuous cyber affair. Was this a wise move? After all, classical scholars familiar with Beowulf know just how dangerous Grendel’s mother was. And this female proved to be no exception. Even without the help of an illegal substance, it was a roller coaster emotional ride as they both attempted to take control of each other!
Having been a published writer for over 30-years I’ve finally decided to go into semi-retirement. During that time I’ve worked mainly in comics. I’ve also worked in TV and radio and spent two years as a gag writer submitting jokes to a number of comedians, even when they begged me not to. But it wasn’t my fault they lacked a sense of humour. My jokes certainly make ME laugh! On top of this I’ve worked as a scriptwriter for animation studios and enjoyed the odd foray into gonzo journalism. Yes, I’m a devoted fan of the late Hunter S. Thompson. And, although, I try to emulate the gonzo style, I never acquired his voracious appetite for mind bending substances. Well, let’s just say I’ve never taken as many as he did.
