Fantastic feedback from fan about my post-apocalyptic crime thriller, Dog Eat Dog

Dog Eat Dog, my 5th novel but the first to be set in the post-apocalyptic world of Yellow Dawn – The Age of Hastur

As you know, I’m a self-published author and there’s no big corporate PR machine to spread the joy when good words coming rolling in. So here’s a lovely message from somebody who is getting into Yellow Dawn (RPG) and has read the novel Dog Eat Dog for additional flavour and background.  Thank you Chris!

> Comment: Good day! I became interested in your Yellow Dawn setting, and decided to purchase Dog Eat Dog. Just wanted to touch base and let you know that I thought it was a FANTASTIC read. I’m really looking forward to the Yellow Dawn setting book arriving in a couple of days, and giving the setting a run. I won’t be using the game rules, as my players wanted to run it in a game system they know, but I’m really, really looking forward to reading more from you! Thanks!

Updating novel covers continues with Dog Eat Dog

My sixth novel Dog Eat Dog gets The Sprezz treatment: a tough crime thriller and the first book to be set in the post-apocalyptic world of Yellow Dawn

Following on from the first updates with God Seed, Dante’s Fool, Iron Man Project, EDGE and Living in Flames; Ben from London design consultancy duo The Sprezz has focused his talent on my sixth novel Dog Eat Dog. Primarily an unflinchingly brutal crime thriller, it is the first book to be set in the post-apocalyptic world of Yellow Dawn (The Age of Hastur). It continues to receive critical acclaim and is considered by fans of post-apocalyptic fiction and the Yellow Dawn RPG to be essential reading.

This is the new cover.

Dog Eat Dog is a post-apocalyptic crime thriller set in the shared universe of David J Rodger after the event called Yellow Dawn

For the love of fedora… and Indiana Jones

David J Rodger for the love of fedora and Indiana Jones

David J Rodger and a fedora

This was taken last month whilst I was with the super talented Gothic horror writer Thomas David Parker, whilst we were imitating the two purveyors of the macabre in H.P.Lovecraft’s tale of terror The Hound – you can see pics of our search for the horror here.  Whilst out in the darkest depths of the Forest of Dean, we were both wearing fedoras and I have to say how much I enjoyed the experience. What a classic hat. For me, very much Indiana Jones rather than prohibition era gangster.

BANKSY back in Bristol: Girl with a Pearl Earring appears on harbourside

Bristol street artist BANKSY recreates the famous Girl with a Pearl Earring

I saw this yesterday on my usual walk around the harbourside – a 3 mile circuit that I do most days, sometimes several times, to reflect on plot ideas for new novels or just to burn off steam.  The harbourside is the heart of the City. So I’m rather pleased to see BANKSY make his mark there with a take on “Girl with a Pearl Earring” – circa 1665 by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer.  Once again someone has decided to deface it… interestingly demonstrating a total lack of aim with a bucket of black paint. Or was it done by the artist himself? Elusive and enigmatic as ever Mr B.
