ABOUT HARRY

Harry was born in a cave in deepest Hertfordshire and raised by wild animals. Starved of human contact as a child, he compensated by reading voraciously and it soon became clear that he was quite intelligent but rather unstable.

Forsaking a successful career in aviation safety management, Harry decided to become a full-time writer and yoga instructor. Well, not so much decided as got let go. Whatever, it worked out. Or it will if you buy his books.

Harry speaks three languages fluently. Unfortunately, only one of them is real and can be understood by other people, so he writes in English.

Harry lives in Verdun. No, not that one. The other one. In Quebec. Yes, that one.

“There is no real point. To any of it. We are specks of dust, dancing on a random breeze. Our lives are meaningless on the cosmic scale. Our individual lives are futile but ... we are unfeasibly fortunate to be alive. We don’t understand why or how but - we exist! Against all the odds. Do you have any idea how lucky we are? To be here. In this room. Conversing.”

Here is a small selection of reviews of my books.

I thoroughly enjoyed No One Gets Out Alive. It is a fine book written by an intelligent, thoughtful, talented author. It was a joy to review, well-written in a clear, uncluttered style. Hugely entertaining, with the narrative moving along at a brisk pace, crammed with bright insights and flashes of sometimes acerbic humour. This novel will challenge and entertain you; a rare combination and well worth the time spent on it.

I loved the book and highly recommend
This is one of those books that you don't want to put down...the authors tell a story that will both make you reflect on life while making you laugh. It is witty, poetic and heart-warming. It is told in a refreshing, original style. Its only fault: it is too short and you will want more. Thankfully there should be a sequel!!! I loved the book and highly recommend!

This is a highly readable book that questions everything you've convinced yourself may or may not be right about life and makes you think about it as part of an interesting fictional story. This lifts the book above its compatriots in the genre - philosophy mixed in with a bit of action. You can't go wrong with that. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can highly recommend it.

Delightful little book
Thought provoking little book that is hard to put down. I read it in an an afternoon and was ready for the next book in the series (hopefully). This would be great for a book club since it is quickly and easily read plus provides some interesting topics for discussion.

No One Gets Out Alive by Harry Tinders is so compelling it is definitely worth a second read as the subjects raised are powerful, thought-provoking, and profound. The dialogue flowed beautifully and, at times, was extremely poignant. I was so impressed with how the question of freedom of choice, culpability, and responsibility for actions was covered. The ending was a surprising twist and absolutely excellent.

A gritty yet tender tale
A charming tale of struggle, resilience, transformation and growth told in striking detail.
The authors wind a colorful yarn, a vulture's journey, with a unique style that is engaging and refreshing. The characters are both temporal and topical.


I thoroughly enjoyed it look forward to a sequel.

First of all, I want to say that I really liked this book. The writing is intelligent, imaginative and colourful. The characters are very well described and above all very endearing. It deals with, among other things, philosophical questions such as religion versus science, moral principles, the reason for existence on earth and always with a certain dose of humour tinged with a touch of irony. The author skilfully manages to make us question our own morality, our principles and the meaning we give to our own life. This book will not leave you unchanged and I highly recommend it. It is a real gem.

It's beautifully written and I thoroughly enjoyed it
An insightful book as told by a vulture, about the need to move forward in life by challenging traditions. It's beautifully written and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's an entertaining read.

No One Gets Out Alive: Morality, Terrorism and IPA by Harry Tinders goes beyond its designated genre. Consistent underlying humor propels No One Gets Out Alive in a variety of thematic directions. As the main character, Frank hosts his controversial radio debates, the reader recognizes the irony of his public arguments. With his comfortable flow of narrative, author Harry Tinders directly aligns the philosophies of visiting alien Q’aa’l with the rantings of the everyday radio listener. The rhetoric of Q’aa’l’s attitude that nothing really matters, yet all actions/non-actions have consequences will linger in the reader's subconscious long after the last page is turned.

Both entertaining and challenging - but definitely enjoyable
One could be fooled that this is a cute tale of "the odd one out" - but anyone reading the well-structured tale will quickly be asking themselves questions about their own society.
How is it that the concept of a vegetarian vulture seems so odd? Why would a good companion apparently abandon their friend in their most public hour of need? Why do the humans in this tale seem worthy and open when, if it were not set in this story, I would imagine that 95% of readers would view them as outsiders and weirdos?
I really enjoyed this book and look forward to see if the authors can maintain the pace and challenges to the reader that they have achieved in this book.
This doesn't book doesn't take the effort and stamina of "Animal Farm" and it is certainly not directed by Wells' overtly political style. This is far more about the subtleties of our modern society and the ability of individuals to lead their own lives, based on their own ethical and moral standards.

And…it is a wonderfully scripted summer afternoon read.

Great book - a hidden gem, strongly recommended
Fantastic book. Follow Boy the turkey vulture who is challenged by the decision to follow his beloved bird into new ways of living or stick with the security of the volt and the intrigues that come with it. The book is easy to read and the story is well balanced. I truly enjoyed to read through this bird-novel that manages to reflect on our society from the perspective of a bird. Bird is the word.

I recommend this book for his originality and humour!
I love the sense of humor in this book. Several facets of our society are masterfully and originally well represented. Indeed, the idea of a volt of vultures is beautifully original. I was really charmed by the description of the characters and the choice of their names.
I terribly loved some phrases in this book. I hope you'll enjoy read it as much as I have' and remember «Geeses are merciless, cruel birds, evolved from some heartless dinosaurs» 🙂
