Well I returned today from a gastronomic trip to New York (I can highly reccomend the [very] fine dining restaurant ‘Per Se’ 🙂 ) to find Greyhart Press have launched my SF story collection on the very same day. What a lovely welcome home!

Back in December I received a Press Sampler from NewCon Press (independant UK genre publisher) with 7 stories inside. As a NewCon regular I got this for free 🙂 . However, you can read these too for less than the price of a coffee. I can highly reccomend.

Today saw the launch of a major project by my co-author Ian Watson and I, a three novel modern / medieval tecno-thriller ‘The Waters of Destiny’, of which we are very proud 🙂 . All three books are available simultaneously: ‘Assassins’ , ‘Tongue of Knowledge’, and ‘Death Overflows’. Angus Donald , bestselling author of The Outlaw Chronicles, has this to say about book One:
“Fluidly written, with finely drawn characters and spot-on historical research, Assassins (Book 1 of The Waters of Destiny) is a tightly plotted international thriller that flips effortlessly between the 12th and 21st centuries to tell a gripping tale of ancient hatreds and modern-day nightmares. Starring a murderous sect of medieval Muslims – that may just have survived into our own age – a Christian fundamentalist US Government agent hot on their trail, and a sexy Canadian history professor looking for love in all the wrong places, Assassins packs in conspiracy, action, romance and clock-ticking suspense into one thoroughly enjoyable Dan Brown-style yarn. Highly recommended.”
Short but very very sweet 🙂

The short story ‘Impasse’ was originally published in the anthology ‘disLocations’ from NewCon Press, which also featured stories from Ken Macleod, Brian Stableford, Pat Cadigan, Hal Duncan and others. Considering this august company I was very pleased when Amazon reviewer Kevin M Knight said: “I enjoyed this story the most. If pressed for a favourite, I would choose this, mainly because I liked the contrasting thought processes of alien cultures as a demigod-like being went mad…”
