My new ebook, Family Tree, is now available to purchase from all the usual online outlets, e.g. Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, iTunes (US), iTunes (UK), etc. For a full set of author books links, please visit the Books page of my website.

This SF story was originally published in Helix (2008). If you enjoyed my Alternate Apollos ebook, you'll likely enjoy this one too. The theme is the importance of teaching and teaching, a subject dear to my heart for lots of reasons.



The cover is by my good friend, Tony Hughes.

I have a new ebook available for pre-ordering.

Family Tree is a story that's very close to my heart. Originally published in 2008 (in Helix #7), in part it's a what-if about the Apollo programme, but mostly it's about the importance of teachers. I think Family Tree will resonate with a lot of readers.

This ebook will be released simultaneously in Kindle and epub formats on January 5th, 2015. However, it is available to pre-order now, from Amazon and Smashwords (iTunes, Kobo, B&N soon). UK/EU readers can pay less VAT if they pre-order Family Tree before January 1st.

For the duration of the World Cup (ends 13 July), I'll be donating 80% of any royalties I receive from sales of The Ultimate Show to Oxfam, a British charity easing suffering throughout the world. What's more, I'll donate 100% of any winnings I receive from the TTA Press World Cup sweepstake (I've drawn Germany) and round the donation total up to the next £10.

Included in The UItimate Show is 'Extra Time', a short story suitable for soccer/football fans and avoiders alike.

The Ultimate Show is available in Kindle format from all branches of Amazon, also in epub format
from Kobo, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords. If you'd like to support this charity promotion, please go to my website's Books page and follow the link to the appropriate on-line store, which will take you to my author page and links to all my ebooks.

First and Third is a rollicking robot romp set on Mars, which was originally published in "Unfit for Eden" from PS Publishing (a.k.a. Postscripts 26/27). 

As usual, the cover is by my close friend Tony Hughes. This time he opted to paint digitally and in colour. Needless to say, I'm very pleased with the results.

The Kindle edition of First and Third is available to buy for tiny amounts of e-cash from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and all other Amazon tributaries.

Then this ebook should help cleanse your palate.

"Tight, inventive and pleasingly nasty" wrote[livejournal.com profile] runmentionable in his review on Amazon.co.uk.



Needless to say, I particularly like that "pleasingly nasty" bit.

The Ultimate Show collects four stories on the theme of shows and other indoor pursuits. If you enjoy rock gigs, comedy nights, art events, or even staying at home to watch sport on television, these stories should appeal to you. None of them have previously appeared in a Kindle edition.

The Ultimate Show is available to purchase at all branches of Amazon, including Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

A reviewer on Amazon.co.uk wrote of Human Nature: "These three short stories, which all touch on how cutting-edge scientific ideas could impact on human relationships, prove that hard SF and characterisation aren't always incompatible. All three have an amusing, darkly ironic tone, occasionally reminiscent of Brian Aldiss at his most cheerfully pessimistic. As ever the author's prose is taut and economic and he makes his points in a third of the time more prolix writers might take. Don't be put off by the flat title - these are smart, diverting and lively stories which will amuse and alarm in equal measure."

If you'd like to read a trio of short, sharp SF shocks covering subjects as diverse as string theory and dating agencies, this is the ebook for you. You can purchase it here:

(US/most of RoW, Kindle format)


Alternative formats are available at Smashwords.com and other on-line retailers.
