Mark Lingane Releases New Dark ComedyMark Lingane Releases New Dark Comedy
by BWW News Desk - Apr 16, 2015

Van H. Avram, PI, stumbles from case to case, getting by on his good looks and appeal to desperate dames. But when a missing-person case dumps the body of a skinny blond thing on his doorstep, he finds himself plummeting into the clutches of an underworld intent on human sacrifice. An ancient evil rises up to destroy the world and, without asking for it, Van is thrust into the role of savior. As realityand the occasional buildingcollapses around him, he's chased, battered, and seduced by demons, vampires and unhinged women, all against a background of a war-ravished world wrapped up in vintage fashions and flying diesel-powered vehicles. Time ticks down to a do-or-die moment as the fate of the universe is decided in one final battle. But to save the universe, Van must face his own demons and an unremembered past. Recent Praise for Sucker: 'A brilliantly humorous mashup fantasy-sci-fi-Noir....Sucker is something of a Bladerunner-style novel, but it has a distinct Bugsy Malone humor to it, with vampires to boot. As usual, Lingane has managed to throw a bunch of genres at the wall and they have melded beautifully into this universe where he is the creator of some pretty amazing sequences....Thoroughly recommended to anyone who enjoys a detective novel with a twist.' - SelfPublishingReview.com 'It begins as a normal missing person case for PI Van H Avram but then all hell is let loose. Oh yes, the author/genre chameleon Mark Lingane goes back to detective noir/fantasy/sf also raising suspicions that he's the literary love child of Dashiell Hammett and Neil Gaiman.' - the Bookbag Sucker is available in print and ebook formats. Book Details: Sucker By Mark Lingane Publisher: Insync Holdings Published: March 1, 2015 ISBN: 978-1508455981 ASIN: B00TJ9D802 Pages: 260 About The Author: Mark Lingane was first published at the ripe old age of eight, when a local newspaper published his review of Disney on Ice. The next time his name was in print was a life time later at the age of fifteen, when a national magazine ran his review of the Commodore 64. It was downhill from there, picking up a weekly column in the Sunday Times which funded a rather noncommittal path through university, studying a wide range of topics from Robotics, Anthropology, Philosophy, Computer Science, and Psychology. In fact so many subjects were studied he was eligible for graduation at the end of his second year, based purely on attendance. He finally left and joined the corporate world before realizing work isn't that much fun, and going back to study. Further writing followed with regular columns for various technology magazines and newspapers around the country. Then as the reality of permanent food and shelter began to bare its teeth, another attempt at the corporate world beckoned as a technical writer, which turned out okay. Shifting from technology companies to resource companies provided the opportunity to travel and live in some desolate and exotic locations.

BWW Profile: Benedict Cumberbatch Oscar-Nominated Star of Stage and ScreenBWW Profile: Benedict Cumberbatch Oscar-Nominated Star of Stage and Screen
by Kara McCoy - Feb 18, 2015

By now, you may know his voice, and you probably know his face, but you definitely know his name. To the delight of everyone with an internet connection and a Netflix account, 'Benedict Cumberbatch' has finally become more than just an overly abundant collection of silly syllables. It's become a household name (insert obligatory 'no matter how kooky of a name it may be' joke here). Today, he's easily one of the busiest men in Hollywood. A bonafide movie star. An Oscar nominee. And that's great. Because I'm a huge fan. You should be too. Here's why. (more...)
