The man who understood nothing until there was nothing left to understand.

Well, it’s time to hunker down for a while here in the UK – local schools are closing for deep cleans and the nearest supermarkets are looking a lot like a scene from the second or third episode of Fear The Walking Dead.

Will I get more writing done with all this quality free time, or is it a nudge from the universe to binge-watch Netflix/Prime and download the new Federations Update of the best PC space strategy game, Stellaris? Questions, questions, and so few answers.

One thing is certain, last year would have been a very good time to get that singing Japanese toilet with seventy-six bidet functions I’ve been lusting after, but never financially justifying since I came back from Tokyo.

If you have some unexpected free time on your hands, I am putting up the second chapter of my new comedy science fiction novel on Patreon tomorrow for download.

Get yourself over to to join me.

The paper books may sell out along with all the bog roll and paracetamol (yeah, yeah: if only), but the pixels will remain forever!

Stay healthy and well, my friends.

I am an author of various fantasy, science fiction, crime and other genre books from Gollancz, Hachette and HarperCollins. Some day I hope to grow up and be an astronaut. Exploring Mars would be nice.
