Here’s Chapter 4 of No Relation, my new novel to be published by McClelland & Stewart on May 20, 2014. In this episode, Hem attends the gathering he’s organized with a little help from the New York Times Classifieds. You’ll meet several new characters in this chapter, and some of them have accents. I’m not very good at accents, so now would be a good time to lower your expectations. Hope you enjoy Chapter 4.

Welcome to Chapter 1 of the No Relation podcast. As I have with my other three novels, I’ll be podcasting No Relation chapter by chapter, one week at a time, until it’s finished.

No Relation is a comic novel about family, fame, identity, corporate espionage, and, oh yes, men’s underwear. I hope you like it. McClelland & Stewart will publish it in May, 2014.

In Chapter 1, we meet our narrator. Let’s just say he’s having a very bad day.

Feedback on the podcast is always welcome. You can leave a comment right here on the blog, or send an email to tfallis@gmail.com.

Well, this was to be the weekend I had hoped to post the first chapter of the No Relation podcast. Unfortunately, a head cold has thwarted my almighty schedule. My voice currently sounds like an odd hybrid of Tom Waits with a sore throat and Jabba the Hutt. So no Chapter 1 this weekend. Fingers crossed for next. Thanks for your patience…

The cover of No Relation… unveiled

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Well, here it is– the cover of No Relation, my fourth novel, due in bookstores on May 20th. I really like what the wonderful designers at McClelland & Stewart have come up with. But don’t be confused or misled, no bears were harmed, or even mentioned for that matter, in the making of the novel, or in the novel itself. As you get into the story, you’ll come to understand that the bear and bear facsimile on the cover are a metaphor for one of the central themes in the novel. Hope you like the cover. More importantly, I hope you enjoy the novel. I’ll start to podcast No Relation, chapter by chapter, sometime in February. Stay tuned…
