💫 A World of InTemperance by Ichabod Temperance
-Back of the Book
It is New Year’s Eve, 1875. In this humorously told Steampunk tale, adventure-prone Ichabod Temperance and his lovely sweetheart, Miss Persephone Plumtartt, once again find themselves swept up into a whirlwind of misadventure and international catastrophe. The entire world totters on the brink of war, as various nations develop arsenals of dreadful power. It seems as though every nation on Earth lusts for Empire. A sinister plot boils to change the course of human history. Along with a remarkable cast of characters, including sapient animals and clockwork men, our heroes find themselves plunged into unimaginable peril!
About the author
Standing over five feet, seven inches and weighing in at better than one hundred and thirty pounds, Ichabod Temperance is ‘The Alfalfa Male.’ After lengthy music, karate, and pro-wrestling careers, Ichabod’s involvement with movie stuntwork has led him to write these whimsical, steam-driven adventures. Mr. Temperance and his lovely muse, Miss Persephone Plumtartt, live in Irondale, Alabama, USA, along with their furry pack family.
- What book inspired your love of reading as a child?
I’m the youngest of five kids. I had lots of hand me down books from my older siblings, but they were usually in pretty rough shape by the time I came along and got to read them. The first book that I remember being bought new for me was ‘Where the Wild Things Are’. I wanted to read my sisters books, but they would always say that I was too young. I remember being introduced to the elementary school library in first grade. We could choose any book we wanted and I checked out my first chapter-ed book, ‘The Adventure of the Coughing Dragon’; part of ‘The Three Investigators’ book series. I was hooked from then on.
- What book took your breath away?
‘Geek Love’ by Katherine Dunn. I’m not sure why. It was such a strange story, and I had not read anything like it before.
- What book made you laugh out loud?
Everything Terry Pratchett writes cracks me up, but there was one time, when I was reading Neal Stephenson’s ‘Snow Crash’, that I almost fell off the couch, I was so struck by what I had just read.
- What book made you shout at its pages?
Oh, I wouldn’t be mean to a book, though I may get put-out by its author.
- What book made you cry real tears?
Almost everything I read. I’m a big marshmallow and will turn on the waterworks at the first adorable kitten I see.
- What book has stayed with you always?
‘Treasure Island’. I read it several times when I was young. I read it again a couple of years ago and it is still a wonderful story. The only thing it lacks is a romance element, but it is intended to be a young boys adventure story, and often, young boys aren’t interested in girls yet.
- What book taught you the most?
I’ve never really been one for book learning. It usually takes a certain level of pain and discomfort for me to learn anything.
- What book would you give to a stranger?
‘The Red-Headed League’ by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
