Sci-fi author Samuel Yaw Jian Fong self-published his third novel in August. Hâjogana is about a man who overcomes the cruelty of his supervisor to make a better society. Here’s a synopsis:
When Hâjogana was young, he aspired to be a governor of one of the colonies of the Konjor Supercorporation, making a difference in a vicious Galaxy with his benevolence.
As he grew up, he was given over to the Gaantegeu army in exchange for several prisoners. As one of the officers of one of the Galaxy’s greatest armies, he fought so well that he became one of its best fighter aces, renowned throughout the Galaxy’s realms. But out of a sudden, he was transferred back into his Supercorporation: firstly under the tenure of a vicious entrepreneur, and then under the direct authority of the sadistic governor Vannikon.
The Supercorporation has left him at the fleeting mercy of his tests and his abusive superiors. If he overcomes them, he will become the next Governor; but if he loses, he might face a cruel and excruciating death. Will he pass his coming tests and make it out alive?
You see an amusing incident while grocery shopping. Do you (1) record what happens in some form OR (2) do nothing?
If there’s an amusing incident, I might record it because it can entertain other people on Youtube. – this question amuses me.
Glad you enjoyed it!
You prefer (1) to people watch OR (2) bird watch?
To be honest, I think bird watching is more entertaining than watching people, because birds are a more relaxing sight.
Birds for you!
Do you (1) buy an item on impulse OR (2) save up to buy the item?
As someone who doesn’t have enough money, I try to save my cash to buy a certain thing, even if it takes months.
Are you a person who (1) makes and follows New Year resolutions OR (2) never bothers with resolutions?
Even though I organise my tomorrows into schedules, I do not bother with New Year’s Resolutions, because I am more focused towards the present instead of the future.
No time like the present!
What provides more inspiration to you: (1) art OR (2) nature?
Art, because it is more broad and variable than nature as a source of inspiration.
Thanks for being interviewed, Samuel!
