Some books are written with grand, world-changing themes in mind, or written to educate or correct some cosmic wrong. And some books are written just to fill the small wasted times life is often filled with. Writing the novel The Liberation of John Bottomless Pitt Jr. and How it Came About (published by AuthorHouse), J.E. Johannessen offers a short, humorous to everyone seeking a fun, enjoyable read.

He had of course asked all the important people in the neighbourhood such as the priest, his teachers, the owner of the grocery store on the corner, the milkman, the man who came to read the metre and the German Shepherd across the street. He had even asked the strange man dressed in a long, worn-out coat and carrying a scythe who had recently started to knock on his door every Saturday just before supper.

In Scaffold Hill, a small English town like any other small English town, John Bottomless Pitt, Jr. is tired of living with his parents. It may have, in fact, driven him completely round the bend. Soon, his only outlet is a rusty pipe … and death his only companion.

The police in Scaffold Hill don’t want to be bothered. It’s up to Smaje Dnob, a modern “man with no name,” to catch the murderer before it’s too late. He has to stop John Bottomless Pitt, Jr. before the madman can slaughter the entire town.

Speaking about the novel, Johanessen says, “A band plays an important role. There is a pub in here somewhere, so if you are thirsty this is not a bad book to invest in. Have pint before the entire establishment explodes!”
