Thrusting Into The Future
This being the case, I am all too aware that great advances in technology are occurring all the time. Where once gas-lamps lit our homes, light-bulbs now sit, emitting their comforting, phosphorous glow into our houses. Where once horse-and-cart transported us through the city, now motorised auto-mobiles chug us along on our journeys. And where once a firm, wooden plank was sufficient for beating one’s man-servant, one can now thrash the bounder with a stainless-steel pipe. Ah, vive le progres!
One most recent technological marvel has been the emergence of the Electronic Hand-Held Book-Reading Device, bringing the great works of literature to a small contraption via tiny atoms or magic or something. I don’t pretend to understand (or indeed care about) the science behind this invention, but I DO acknowledge that it looks, feels and smells very much like the future!
Naturally, I am not one to be left behind, and in wishing to see my journals survive well into the next millennia, I have instructed my own technological bods to go about engineering a way of transferring this very web-log into a form suitable for enjoyment in one of these Electronic Hand-Held Book-Reading Devices! And by jove, they have only succeeded!
YES, dear readers, I am pleased to announce that The Astonishing Adventures of Lord Likely is now available for perusal via Mr. Amazon’s ‘Kindle’ contraption, as of today! HUZZAH!
For a mere, piffling 99p per month (with a FREE 14-day trial) , one may subscribe to these journals and have them delivered electronically into your Kindling device! Think of it like an electronic penny dreadful, only 99 times better, and not at ALL dreadful!
Do not delay! Click HITHER to-day!
I do hope some of you who own these devices shall take up this opportunity. Not only is it the chance to be at the razor-tipped cutting-edge of progress, but NOWHERE else will you be able to receive such a constant stream of sheer ASTONISHMENT and AMAZEMENT, rendering all those so-called ‘books’ completely obselete overnight! Furthermore, it is the chance for many of you to fulfil that most desired of dreams – holding me in your VERY HAND. HUZZAH!
If you do subscribe – or even if you do not – a review of said journals would be appreciated ‘pon this page, so that word may spread and the Likely Empire may forge ahead into thrilling new territories!
Prepare thine tinted-spectacles, chums – the future is bright, the future is LIKELY!
- Lord Likely.
