We follow on with the story of Robot Empire, with this, the 5th book in the series.

Arla Farmer, Captain of the generational Arkship Dawn, has trouble on her hands. She is faced with a difficult decision and her crew are fully behind her, with one exception, the priest Prime Xi. He has gone behind her back and made a deal with Admiral Minchin to take control of the ship and mutuny against her.

"Humanity has been found wanting."
Arla Farmer is determined to find a permanent home for the peoples of Dawn and returns to long deserted Earth for clues to the destination of another ship sent out in search of a new habitation. Meanwhile, ACE still is not dead...

Continuing the unusual story of homesteading, religion, space exploration, antagonistic robots and curious replaying of history, Twilight on Terra is perhaps the most accessible of the Robot Empire series so far. Although not absolutely

This is easily my favourite book in this series so far. Many questions are answered, while many mysteries are left unsolved. Plotlines and characters from the first few books are seamlessly brought together to form an intricate and novel overall picture. As usual, the writing is brilliant. I cannot wait for the last book!

A curious millieu of future Earth as a post apocalyptic agrarian place, also the exploration of the other arkships.
There was a faceoff with ACE and some other action scenes, not as many loose ends in this one but it could probably have used some more character development.

I write comic fantasy in the style of Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels and science fiction in the classic tradition of Asimov et al.

Based in the south of England, I've been writing since my teens, alternating between funny and serious. In the mid 1990s, I became a regular columnist for PC Pro magazine and have written a number of business and craft books over the years.

Fiction is my first love,
