Terraformer released

Who feels like a bit of sci-fi? Awesome! Take a look at Terraformer: a sci-fi about a terraforming engineer that is enlisted by an old friend to transform a planet. I have to confess: this has a lot of clichés in it. It is getting out everything I’ve ever liked about movies and books and shoving…

Centurion Blood Now Available

Did somebody say “Historical Fiction?” Did somebody say “Ancient Rome?” I hope so, because that’s what I’ve just written about! Centurion Blood is a novella set during the second Punic war, when Hannibal of Carthage was marching on Rome. It is based on the Battle of Lake Trasimene- one of the bloodiest in history. It…

Hands up: who has ever ordered a book from Wikipedia?

If you’re anything like me, you would have seen the ‘create ebook’ option on the left of Wikipedia. What? You haven’t? Go and have a look for it! (It is on the side menu on the main website.) If you’re anything like me, you would have made a dozen books and never even read them….

The Secret Review

I do love myself some crap fiction. Ah, The Secret… I have tried to find somebody I know that owns a copy of this for years, but until now it has eluded me. I think it is the wax seal on the cover. It just looks mystical. And then on the back they are talking…

The Last Mammoth – available now!

Hot off the press… My latest book is now available at Amazon. If you have a Kindle, get it here. It is a thrilling yarn about an old professor on the hunt for a Woolly Mammoth. It is only a few dollars, and it should surely entertain you for an evening or two.

Have you got The Edge

Ah, Westerns… Such a glorious genre, especially if you are after something that isn’t very good. Which brings me directly to Big Gold. Number 14 in a series featuring a hero called Edge, but you don’t need yo read the first 13 to appreciate it (and you certainly don’t need to read the following 47 books…

Moonraker. The Novel.

I quite like Moonraker the film. Oh, I know- it is gloriously terrible. Lasers in space, Jaws isn’t a shark, Roger Moore… It perhaps sums up the worst of James Bond. Which is quite convenient, because the novel sums up Iam Fleming at his best. I can’t remember much about the movie except the lasers….

The Albatross in the Desert- now with spell-check!

One of the problems with not having an editor is that little issues sneak into my published works before I can spot them. Thankfully, I have a lovely wife that goes through my books line by line and tells me what’s wrong.  And so I can now present version 2 of The Albatross in the…

Hunting “The Deer Hunter”

The Deer Hunter… A long movie, and possibly a great one. I can only remember a few things about it: It goes for nigh-on 4 hours They spend 45 minutes in Vietnam Great ending- but it might only be great because it took so long to get to. I’ve only seen the movie the once. I…

Working hard… 

Ah, so what do you do when your trusty laptop goes on without you? You improvise! I’m a big fan of the Raspberry Pi, and since the model 3 has been out for a while, I have used it to run my media room. I always hoped I could use it as a PC, and…

Preacher Man Available

A religious western? Hell, why not! Preacher Man started life years ago in the back of my head. Originally it was going to be about a cult that went wrong, but I could never find the right angle for the story. Thanks to Trump, there are now a lot more people that are feeling more…
