Down Station now available in US and Canada

May 12th, 2016

This. This was a problem, beginning from the UK-and-everywhere-else release in February, till now. But not any more!

You may now approach your favourite (or favorite) bookseller, and get a trade paperback copy of Down Station (complete with awesome cover) for around $25, and the ebook for considerably less. Links via this website, here.

What We Do At Night

May 12th, 2016

What We Do At Night is an interactive fiction story that will appear on this website at precisely 1201 BST on Friday, 13th May 2016.

The preamble is already up. As I say, it’s an experiment. If you want to leave feedback or report broken links (I’ve tested it thoroughly, but I’m fallible), here’s as good a place as any.

So that’s the second novella…

April 19th, 2016

My first novella was Another War – published by Telos in 2005. I’ve left it rather a long time to write another, but I’m delighted to say that my second novella, At the Speed of Light, has just found a home at Newcon Press. Newcon, brilliantly run by the lovely Ian Whates, has a reputation for producing books that are high quality inside and out. At the Speed of Light is a diamond-hard SF story, clocking in around 45,000 words, and all the action takes place at 99.99999% of c. Expect shenanigans.

Publication is most likely in the first half of 2017.
