PictureA ‘topical’ review of the novel 'Robopocalypse' by Daniel H. Wilson, just two years after it was originally released!

3.5 out of 5
I don’t usually write reviews on my blog, well not requested reviews anyway, and I don’t intend to start – I’ll leave that to bloggers  with much more of an interest in that sort of thing than me - but I have to right a bit of a wrong, especially now that I’m a publi...

Darren White Hi Everyone!

My Science Fiction & Horror short story collection Memes of Loss and Devotion is FREE at Amazon for the next three days (16th - 19th December 2013). I've been getting pretty good reviews.

It examines the human condition, our possible futures, our challenges as a species and our failings as sentient, supposedly intelligent beings. Just where might future technology take us if we are not mindful of the unintentional consequences? What will we get? The future we want, or the future we deserve?

Click on the below link to get a copy:

Thanks!
Darren White
