Revenge Ltd

Newly added to my website is "Revenge Ltd", a piece of flash fiction weighing in at a very lean 360 words. I wrote this sometime in the early 1990's. By the time I've given you a synopsis, you could have already read it.

eBook Formats - update

I mentioned earlier that I'd be tweaking the formats of "Spireclaw" and "The Daedalus Transfer" to make them display better on eBook readers. I've uploaded the new versions and they're accessible via the existing PDF links on my website. The pages are now 6x9 inches, and they have linked contents pages. The font size is 12pt, so all should be good now... I hope.

Altruistic aliens, selfish aliens?

Would an intelligent species help another intelligent species if it had nothing left to lose? You could describe the ending of my short story "Remnants" as a cynical one, or an optimistic one, depending on which side of bed you got out of this morning. The same question can be levelled at the humans in the story. I'll leave it to you to decide. "Remnants", my story set on one cold night in the Falkland Islands, is published today in the December/January issue of the brilliant online zine Reflection's Edge.
