Will There Be More?

The positive reaction to Burying Gabe has been amazing. Thanks to everyone who has shelled out 99 pence (or the equivalent in their own national currency) to buy and read my modest SF confection.





A couple of readers have asked “will there be more from the crew of the Lady Vespertine?” The answer is a solid yes as I’ve already got one idea in mind for another adventure, though it won’t be my next...

An e-book borrowed from Cambridgeshire County Libraries.

Raymond Chandler evokes a vivid picture of LA 80 years ago. His characters are sharply drawn - you get the impression he genuinely knew people like these. It's gripping stuff!

I am not worthy! I am not worthy! Spice Pogrom was my favourite of this collection - I love her screwball comedy stories so much.

Alfred Bester
“Faith in faith' he answered himself. 'It isn't necessary to have something to believe in. It's only necessary to believe that somewhere there's something worthy of belief.”
Alfred Bester, The Stars My Destination

Alfred Bester
“You pigs, you. You rut like pigs, is all. You got the most in you, and you use the least. You hear me, you? Got a million in you and spend pennies. Got a genius in you and think crazies. Got a heart in you and feel empties. All a you. Every you...'

[...]

Take a war to make you spend. Take a jam to make you think. Take a challenge to make you great. Rest of the time you sit around lazy, you. Pigs, you! All right, God damn you! I challenge you, me. Die or live and be great. Blow yourselves to Christ gone or come and find me, Gully Foyle, and I make you men. I make you great. I give you the stars.”
Alfred Bester, The Stars My Destination

Alfred Bester
“Be grateful that you only see the outward man. Be grateful that you never see the passions, the hatreds, the jealousies, the malice, the sicknesses... Be grateful you rarely see the frightening truth in people.”
Alfred Bester, The Demolished Man

Kurt Vonnegut
“Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

Carrie Fisher
“I don’t want life to imitate art. I want life to be art.”
Carrie Fisher
