"The second installment...has solidified this series for me as one of the best pieces of science fiction I have ever encountered. (it’s) masterful, and mind bending”
- Doctor Gains, Author, The Shot

“I loved it...If you find the description interesting, I can pretty much assure you'll love it, too."
- Evo Terra, Founder,

“The thing that struck me most, though, was the world building...The use of language and description painted a world that was just different enough from our own in every sense to be unsettling but familiar."
- Scott Roche, Author, The House of Phobos

“There are some stories of this type that stand out in excellence and uniqueness in the trend...What a great project."
- Legendarium, Fantasy & Sci-Fi

“I've been through this book probably a half dozen times, and once I start, I'm foaming at the mouth to finish. If you're a fan of sci-fi, post-apocalyptic, Westerns, and mysteries, you're going to love this book, which is stuffed with all of that.”
- Jake (Amazon)

“I’ve been looking for something this well done for a long time…If you’re looking to get lost in a great bit of fiction that will engage your mind and your heart you’ve found it. Settle in and listen for a few hours or more, times as they are."
- Simsek (iTunes)

“Weird, unconventional, and irreverent only begin to describe this gem...Read the book. You'll love it. Period. In all honesty, this is science fiction at its best.”
- craigr1971 (Amazon)

“Best. Audiobook. Ever. I’ve listened to tons of audiobooks and this one is definitely the most well produced. Dune is my second.”
- Mithys (iTunes)

- Kate G (iTunes)

“Everyone who has read and enjoyed Stephen King's Gunslinger novels should really give this a go...The production is beautifully done...the music is wonderful."
- Rusty Carl, Author, A Dead God's Wrath

“I will say without pause that Tincture is the absolute best. There is nothing better on the net. This isn't hyperbole, just a correct assessment."
- rootlock (iTunes)

“If you are looking for a post-apocalyptic adventure of a slightly different taste, then I have a story for you. It really is fantastic, in my humble opinion."

The Author

Tincture is written and narrated by Matthew D. Jordan.

Matthew lives in Washington with his wife and son (Mikayla and Atlas), where they are kept company by a fussy English Bulldog named Opal. Matthew is fond of salty breakfasts, pipe tobacco, ranch dressing — and as a habitual introvert — he believes short pants and the sunshine are to be enjoyed by those of lesser character.
