Empty Between the Stars: a new science fiction novel hits the book stores.

Empty Between the Stars is a science fiction adventure set in a universe where A.I.s are gods and mankind a fairly reduced force in the great scheme of things. So far, readers have told me it has put them in mind of […]

Star Trek Discovery vs Godzilla.

Star Trek Discovery vs Godzilla.

Well, it’s been a 12-year gap since Star Trek Enterprise finished and the new Star Trek Discovery beamed back down onto our TV screens. Ironically, that long gap led to the technological ascendance of streaming and an odd conundrum. Discovery is on Netflix in the UK, Europe and just about everywhere except the USA, where […]

Stephen Hunt, Genre Buster?

Stephen Hunt, Genre Buster?

Sometimes you choose the title and other times the title chooses you. One of my readers, Sam Briggs (thanks, Sam), sent in this link to an article that U.S. book store chain Barnes & Noble wrote about one of my novels – the first in the seven-book Jackelian series, The Court of the Air. Apparently […]

Yes, readers, Sliding Void #4 has now hit the bookshops!

Yes, readers, Sliding Void #4 has now hit the bookshops!

Anomalous Thrust is the 4th book in Sliding Void series.

It’s also full novel-sized, rather than novella-sized. Your feedback indicated you wanted it all at once, rather […]

The wicked wild wild web.

Story Update (10th March 2015) Yipee. Sanity has been restored it seems, touch wood. The cyber-attacks on this site and SFcrowsnest.org.uk have dwindled away in the face of the counter-measures suite we introduced, and the attacks on the social networks have been taken care of too. Thanks to everyone who helped with suggestions of who […]

Green energy to bankrupt the energy mega-corps? (and a writing update).

Green energy to bankrupt the energy mega-corps? (and a writing update).

With the upswell in ‘free’ green energy, electricity suppliers in Germany and Denmark have applied to shut down newly unprofitable power plants, but the nervous governments are resisting, afraid of being caught short on some cold winter’s night with little wind. A case for a nationalised back-up system if I’ve ever heard it! Read the […]
