The Inevitability of Twitter

Someone mentioned Twitter to me the other day and then it kept popping up in the periphery, so there's an inevitability about it, like when you think you want to buy something then you end up buying it, even though you hadn't fully decided to buy it when you first thought of it. Hope you're still with me!

So my Twitter page is here and I'd be grateful if you would be so kind as to "follow" me so that I don't feel too lonely in there. I promise to write interesting things on it, rather than just use it to find out what Thomas Dolby is up to.

I'm a Torrent

I've never managed to get Bit-Torrent to work, nor am I all that good at "leet speak", but for those that are even more geeky than me, my novel "The Daedalus Transfer" has been swept into a torrent file at www.h33t.com along with a load of other ebooks. In fact, looking at the esteemed company that I am in (Orson Scott Card, Nick Sagan), I have to speculate about the legitimacy of the enterprise. But my novel is free so the more that read it the better.

In fact, I'm not endorsing that anyone actually downloads this torrent, I'm merely blowing my own trumpet.

The Axiom Few return in The Detention Spore

When a box of syringes mysteriously appears on Davey's kitchen table, the team suspect a Darken Loop is in play. But how does it connect to the letter Geek receives from his father in prison, warning of a virus outbreak inside it's walls?

The events in "The Detention Spore" take place six months after "The Darken Loop", and although there are references to the other stories in the Axiom Few canon, each works as a standalone piece.

Click here to go to the Axiom Few page on my website, where "The Detention Spore" is available to read for free.

Schaefer's Integrity - New wraparound cover coming soon


The awesome concept image that Marvin Herbring has produced is well on it's way to becoming the new replacement wraparound cover for my novel Schaefer's Integrity. I'm really excited about this as the image really brings the book to life. We should see it in the next couple of months.

Also, in anticipation of this I have created a Facebook group for the book, so do head over there and join up if you can.
