Sadly I can't make Eastercon this year...

But if you are heading off to Bradford for this weekend's fun and games, why not visit Mars en route? Joe and Masie would love to be your guides.

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, and all other Amazon tributaries.

In SF Revu's review of Postscripts 26/27 'Unfit for Eden':

"First and Third" by Vaughan Stanger – Joe loves Maisie, even though she's dead. He keeps her mind alive, downloaded on some sort of server. He wants to keep her going until she achieves something called Rapture. It would take too long to explain the intricacies of all this. He makes a living on Mars repairing robots, but he's on the run from the law. Things get more complicated after that. Joe and Maisie are characters you'll like and that's enough for any story.

I'll take that.
