Since (and including) my 2009 debut—THE STRANGE AFFAIR OF SPRING HEELED JACK—I’ve written eight novels and a scattering of short stories (short stories neither herd nor swarm, they only scatter). By the end of the year, it will be nine novels. My current project currently stands at 130,000 words. I’m two chapters into the third act, which means the total length may well touch 200,000, giving it... Read more of this blog post »

It’s novels like this that, decades ago, made me fall in love with science fiction. It is, if you like, the “purest” variety of SF, in the sense that it concerns space, space ships, aliens, and more than anything else, big, BIG ideas. All the modern ...more
