Book Description:

Halley’s Casino is set in 1986. 26-year old Nebula Yorker (Neb to his friends), is patiently awaiting the return of Halley’s Comet. He is about to discover that the world is not what it seems.

Upon the arrival of Halley’s Comet, Neb is confronted by a mysterious stranger who literally swoops out of the night sky. What happens next will change the course of Neb’s life and that of all he befriends.

This stranger (Mr. Tict) reveals to Neb that Halley’s is not a comet at all, but an Intergalactic Casino that has been posing as a comet for countless years. Mr. Tict is the Concierge of the Casino and he has come back to Earth to recruit Neb as his assistant.

What happens next is an eye-opening experience for young Neb that no one on Earth can imagine. It can only be explained by watching old Star Trek reruns, while eating cheese sandwiches and drinking hot chocolate. From androids with attitude to a vast assortment of alien beings and historic individuals, with a touch of time travel from ancient Babylon to 1757 London and back to Rome of 12 BCE, Neb soon learns that his past, present and future have always lain in the stars above.

It’s a rock and roll ride chock full of chaos, a formidable nemesis, drama, satire, humour, death and new beginnings, with revelations that Neb never saw coming.

Even John Lennon is amused!

Starting out on a quiet evening of star gazing, Nebula Yorker finds himself caught up in the most extraordinary time travel and planet saving adventure of a lifetime.

And that’s only the beginning of what is to come.

Q& A with Mark JG Fahey...

There are many books out there about….What makes yours different?
 Halley's Comet, an  intergalactic casino posing as a comet?
I would say that's different. I did much research before starting to write and found
nothing like it anywhere.

How did you do research for your book?
Research was a big task, my book  encompasses time travel among other things
I wanted to be 100 % sure that all historical place, events and names were true to the
time frame and thus I was able to play with these places, events and names to suit the story line
without changing to much or any of real history because you know time travel is tricky to say the least.

What made you write a book about…?
I have always been fascinated with Halley's Comet from a early age and one day this
amazing thought came into my mind. Halley Comet is really a intergalactic casino = Halley's Casino.
Is there a specific ritualistic thing you do during your writing time?
Besides reading and writing I hate arithmetic, music is a BIG part of my life.
Music is always playing in the background as  I write, it's a must,  as well music
plays a important part of the book without naming spoilers. If you love rock n roll the keen
music lover will find all sort of musical references.

If you could go back in time, where would you go?
Ancient Rome

What advice would you give budding writers?
Don't give up. Write for YOU and not for any fame or fortune .
