So if you haven’t yet had chance to check out this great collection of SF stories, why not head over to grab yourself a copy for the extremely reasonable present-day price of £2.99 / $4.16.

 

 

The Future, today!

OUT TODAY is Indie Authors Press‘ future-themed anthology “Issues Of Tomorrow“, which includes my story ‘Broken Machines‘.

A second SF piece from me in the last few months, this one tells the tale of Soriah, an abused pleasure droid taken in by an ageing off-world tinkerer, who helps her to understand what it is to be truly alive.

Featuring a bumper collection of work from 19 different authors, all exploring the question of ‘What If?’, the book is available to purchase from both Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com.

Blood from the Mummy’s Tome?

I’m pleased to announce that, after a brief revision, Terror Tree’s ‘Mummy Knows Best‘ anthology is no longer under wraps, having arisen once more on both Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com to terrorize the living.

Featuring brand new work from fifteen authors on a central theme, the book houses stories of mummies from around the globe, including Egypt, Latvia, Britain, Japan and Peru (as well as a couple of tales from outside of the box as well).

If you like new twists on a classic monster, then why not dig up a copy (just beware of the curse!).

 

Tomorrow slightly delayed

Indie Authors Press have recently posted an update about their upcoming SF anthology, ‘Issues of Tomorrow‘, which will include my story ‘Broken Machines‘.

The book is now due for a slightly later release date in December, which makes it a great idea for an early stocking filler.

More news to follow as it develops.

 

Electronic Nightmares

As of this week, you’ll now be able to download a copy of Parlour Tricks on your kindle or equivalent device, meaning you can scare yourself silly for les than three quid without even leaving the comfort of your armchair, bed or wherever it is you tend to do your reading.

Links to the Amazon download pages below and on the Publications tab:-

A less expensive hat?

The paperback version of my first collection, ‘Parlour Tricks’, is now available and can be purchased through all the usual outlets, for those of you who prefer your fiction a little cheaper than the hardback version:-

Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com / Parallel Universe Publications

If you’re wanting to get your copy delivered in short order, I’d recommend ordering direct from David @ Parallel Universe as, being the publisher, he’s carrying a greater stock and you’re less likely to have to wait for a printing.

 

Of Gods and Monsters

The Autumn edition of The Colored Lens is now available to download from Amazon, and features my SF story, “神の狩人 (Kami No Kariudo)“.

Those of you familiar with my work will know that sci-fi is an arena I don’t stray into too often, so it’s always gratifiying to see one of these pieces get published.

You can order the latest edition via the following downloads for a very reasonably priced £3.67 / $4.99:-

Amazon.co.uk

The Hat Has Landed

 

Ladies and gentlemen, drum-roll please, as the hardcover version of Parlour Tricks is now available to order from Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com, priced at a very reasonable £20/$26. Stocks will be available shortly as we’re all just awaiting the first deliveries from the printers.

The book will also be on sale directly from Parallel Universe‘s purchase page, as well as listed with Barnes & Noble and Wordery soon. I’ll add links for all of these as soon as they become available.

Many thanks to both David Riley and Luke Spooner for all their hard word in making this happen, and to David especially for agreeing to publish the collection in the first place.

 

Devil worshippers stalk the ageing boards of Blackpool Pier, a scrap-yard automaton devours the souls of lost children, and a murderous priest hunts an ancient she-demon through the streets of New York.

A selection of horror stories to chill the blood, featuring revenant felines, garbage-eating clairvoyants, flesh-eating magpies and a severed head with murder in mind.

Pulled out of the hat

With less than a month to go before the release of my debut collection from Parallel Universe Publications, I can at last reveal the extemely cool artwork for the upcoming hardcover:-

The awesome image is by Luke Spooner and you can find more of his fantastic work over at his website – Carrion House .

The book is now on its way to the printers and will be released at some point during August, initially as a hardcover version, retailing at £20.

I’ll add tons more details here and on the publications tab as we get nearer to launch date.

 

 

Visions of the Future

Those awesome chaps over at Indie Authors Press have recently revealed the below draft cover for their upcoming sci-fi anthology, Issues of Tomorrow, which features my short story ‘Broken Machines‘.

Due out in the latter half of this year, the anthology is currently slated for a July/August release window. Of course if this changes, I’ll post another update then. In the meantime, enjoy the suitably dark and moody artwork.
