Justin Dillon-Shallard lives in Bournemouth on the south coast of England with his wife Samantha, his daughter Emily and two furry persian fiends/cats.

GODS is his first novel. He is currently working on a sequel, set 15 years after the events of GODS.

I am quite excited about this.

As I reach the half way point of my current work, I have spent some time putting together the blurb. What do you think?

Captain Stephanie Kane is having a bad few months. It’s her first year leading the London Information Warfare Defence team and she is struggling to prevent relentless computer attacks from an American adversary calling himself The Patriot. His cyb... Read more of this blog post »

TECHNOPATH by Justin Dillon-Shallard
"A Thrilling Follow Up!

When I read DEiFIED a while ago, I thought it was terrific. Technopath is even better. It is not often that an author follows through with a novel that is better that the debut, but Justin Dillon-Shallard has done just that.

Enjoyable, with some great ideas. However it was all over too soon. There was scope and potential to explore the world and story in greater depth. I wanted more!

DEiFIED by Justin Dillon-Shallard
"A Twirl Through a Fascinating Alternate Reality

Justin Dillon-Shallard has written a steady-paced novel that encompasses several genres, but does not compromise on integrity. Everything has its place. I would say that the novel leans more toward a..." Read more of this review »

Alexis de Tocqueville
“What good does it do me, after all, if an ever-watchful authority keeps an eye out to ensure that my pleasures will be tranquil and races ahead of me to ward off all danger, sparing me the need even to think about such things, if that authority, even as it removes the smallest thorns from my path, is also absolute master of my liberty and my life; if it monopolizes vitality and existence to such a degree that when it languishes, everything around it must also languish; when it sleeps, everything must also sleep; and when it dies, everything must also perish?

There are some nations in Europe whose inhabitants think of themselves in a sense as colonists, indifferent to the fate of the place they live in. The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved. They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

When a nation has reached this point, it must either change its laws and mores or perish, for the well of public virtue has run dry: in such a place one no longer finds citizens but only subjects.”
Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

John Green
“Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. (...) You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska
