The Magicke Outhouse (Book Three of the Silverville Saga)

Congratulations to Mark and Kim Todd on the publication of The Magicke Outhouse, Book Three of the Silverville Saga. They're two talented writers, friends, and an inspiration to all. I interviwed them recently, and you can read the interview here.



THE MAGICKE OUTHOUSE (Silverville Saga, #3)

Everyone knows you can’t time-travel. But somehow those rules apply in Silverville, where anything is possible. Combine ley lines with a mysterious privy fungus and you might end up anywhere, from Ancient Egypt to the Wild West or into the future. Add in an almost zombie and a pig that can sing “Happy Birthday,” and you’r e in for a wild ride – if the tour guides can just work out the kinks. 

Here’s what reviewers are saying:

“A unique cast of characters makes this a fun and enjoyable read!” – Alex J. Cavanaugh, author of the Amazon Bestselling Cassa series

“This rollicking story keeps the reader captivated until the last, surprising chapter. Who would have thought that a journey that begins in an outhouse could be so much fun?!” – Charlie Craig, showrunner/head writer for SyFi Channel’s hit series Eureka and writer for Fox’s The X-Files

“Mystery, adventure, exotic locations – Kym and Mark Todd have a time-travel hit with this new adventure in the Silverville Saga series. As soon as those deadly kinks are worked out, sign me up.” – Stacia Deutsch, NYT Bestselling author

  2. You had me at "rollicking story" and lost me at "mysterious privy fungus." ;) Just kidding. Congratulations guys since it sounds like a great book.

    1. Ha! Thanks, Maurice, for the well wishes. I suppose the book *is* a bit of a cautionary tale: Be careful when someone offers you strange mushrooms -- or a chance to inhale privy fungi!

  3. I love the unusual ideas in the book! "Privy fungus," "almost zombie" and a singing pig? Cool! Congrats to Kym and Mark on their third book - wishing them much success. :-)

    1. Thanks, Lexa. We've gotta quit taking long road trips. Every time we do, we end up talking ourselves into a new book -- and this one must have been those strange mushrooms we ate! :)

    1. Thanks, Rachna. We're sluts for time-travel stories and decided it was time to do our own -- but with the inevitably quirky flavor we can't resist adding to anything we write. H.G. Wells it ain't! :)

  5. Ellie, thanks so much for revisiting our book and giving it a plug now that it's finally out this week.

    We're devoted fans of your own SF and horror. Keep 'em coming. Maybe it's something about Brit humour -- or maybe it's just you! :)

  7. This sounds like an awesome book! There's something about time travel that fascinates. I'm even working on a time travel novel myself...if only I'd spend time writing instead of reading interesting blogs like this one!

    1. Thanks, Max, for these kind words. And we totally agree -- there's something really seductive about the concept of time travel. Hope you get a chance to finish that novel!
