Reviews by M.San Filippo

Philo Gubb

by Ellis Parker Butler

I enjoyed reading this collection of stories or cases solved by a graduate of a mail order detectives school (in twelve easy lessons).

It is a comedy, as the whole small town laughs at the detective's bad disguises. He buys them from the detective school. Mr. Gubb bungles along and solves all the cases.

His love interest is also very unusual, she is a performer in a freak show: The Fat Lady.

Author of the Day

Alan Joshua
As a clinical psychologist and parapsychologist, Alan Joshua is fascinated with the human mind and everything that makes it tick. He combined his extensive knowledge with his passion for sci-fi in his action-packed debut fiction novel, The SHIVA Syndrome, which has received rave reviews and has already been nominated for several awards. As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
