All my novels are available as paperbacks from Amazon, in Kindle format from the Kindle Store, and various other ebook formats from Smashwords. If you're into dark fantasy, The Apprentice is a good place to start; if you prefer dystopian SF, try Max; and if you arrived here because of my time as a reviewer, Game Boy might be your thing. Finally, if you enjoy any of my books, please take the time to leave a rating or a review: it makes me unreasonably happy to hear what people think.

Hi Edi

Some of the books are sequels (The Journeyman is a direct sequel to The Apprentice, and Mute & Another World are less direct sequels to Max) but the rest are standalone stories. I've just looked up Leonid Andreyev on Amazon and they look like my kind of books - thanks for the comparison (and by extension, the reading recommendation). I'll check him out.(less)

“Eight-foot high posters in plate glass windows advertised the latest fashions: for young girls the look was crack whore; for young boys, indecisive pimp; for teenagers of both sexes, the image was androgynous vampire, expensively accessorised.”
Gordon Houghton, Max

“Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow
Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend”
Albert Camus

“Civil government, so far as it is instituted for the security of property, is in reality instituted for the defense of the rich against the poor, or of those who have some property against those who have none at all.”
Adam Smith

“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.”
Groucho Marx

“You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet, still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”
Franz Kafka

“Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.”
Denis Diderot
