Don't forget the Smashwords Summer-Winter sale! There's one free book of short stories, and four books reduced by half, but only for July, so if you're late, you're too late. My favourite is Agoness (oh, and Picquet, and Not on the Cards, and even though I will probably never do another Allegory, I quite like … Continue reading This-post-will-self-destruct-in-5-4-3-2-1

A Moment in Time

Some stories are a moment in time, captured and played out like a piece of music.

A new world, a dangerous place mistakenly assessed as suitable for human colonisation. An inexperienced corporal must lead a motley group of civilians to the only possible point of extraction. Mistake, or exile? Corporal … Continue reading It’s A-Live!!!
