Apologies for so far it appears that no-one has been able to get their hands on a copy of Sailing to Purgatory. I believe that Tomas bought a Kindle version from Amazon. So far, though, not even your humble writer has seen a hard copy.
To make sure that aspiring readers aren't, well, left entirely empty-handed this weekend, here's the Prelude from the book
The Prelude sets the scene, of course, for the story. This is how it begins ...
To cross an ocean on your own, to achieve it singlehandedly with only you
on the sailing craft, is the most exciting, most exhilarating, most
satisfying thing a human can do. The open sea sweeps you into another
universe, a virtual Paradise which occasionally transforms into the
opposite yet always offers the excitement of plying an astonishing
unworldly best of our world of constantly changing seascapes and seasons
and sun angles and star families and life. However, be warned: solo
ocean-going is a bit more risky than crossing a busy road.
The complete Prelude is here as a downloadable PDF document. I really hope you will approve, and with sincerest apologies for the delay. I am told it has been caused through a delayed delivery from the printers. Apparently the order only arrived at Olympia's offices on Friday afternoon.
