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."

"The Last Botnet", "String-driven Thing" and "Dark They Were, and Strange Inside" were originally published in Nature 'Futures' 2008-2010.

The cover of Human Nature is by Tony Hughes. (I am lucky indeed to count such a talented artist as a close friend!)

Human Nature compiles my three Nature 'Futures' short-shorts (The Last Botnet, String-driven Thing and Dark They Were, and Strange Inside) into a handsomely packaged e-book for Kindle and Kindle-emulating apps (for iPhone, iPad, Android, PC,...). Dark They Were... was ranked among The Science Fact & Science Fiction Concatenation's favourite 'Futures' published in 2010.

Once again, the cover is by good friend Tony Hughes.




Human Nature is available to purchase for tiny amounts of e-cash from:
