Hi, my real name is Eric Twose. My latest works are "The Dissidents: A novella" and "Game of Aeons: A short novel", written as H.M. Forester in the genre of soft science fiction. They're really more about people than technology.

I've previously written several works of mystical faction [sic] in a series called "The Shadowlands", using the pen name Etienne de L'Amour.

One common thread running through all my novels is the help given in times of need by #SecretFriends.

At the moment, Goodreads won't let me link my real name account to both pseudonyms. Anyhow, if you click on the author links above, you'll be taken to the appropriate profile and the list of their books.

You can find me at twitter as "Esowteric".

Mystical adventure Escape from the Shadowlands and soft scifi Game of Aeons: A short novel are both available for free download for a limited time.

The titles are available as epub and mobi ebooks, or as pdf documents.

“There is no such thing as 'just one last cigarette' – except the last cigarette that you've already had.”
H.M. Forester, Game of Aeons

“I? This is the very root of all evil.”
H.M. Forester, The Dissidents

“There are universal laws at work, even here. The Law of Attraction; the Law of Correspondence; and the Law of Karma. That is: like attracts like; as within, so without; and what goes around comes around.”

“Is that a banana in your lunch box, or are you just pleased to see me?”
H.M. Forester, The Dissidents

“There was a great joke that was forever doing the rounds in the jail and it was probably funny not because it had a humorous punchline but because it was so very true at a deep psychological level. Put anyone in that jail and soon enough they'd actually become a cruel, twisted, sadistic and heartless thug. And some of the prisoners were just as bad.”
H.M. Forester, The Dissidents
tags: humor

“All you had to do was crack up and beg to see the Governor; grovel at his feet and admit to being a dissident; heartily repent your sins, and volunteer for elective brain surgery.”
H.M. Forester, The Dissidents

“Their methods were especially crude and most of these former friends were now born again model citizens; lobotomized; or burnt out shells.”
