Stories of science fiction and fantasy
Welcome, g'day, hi there!
Australian author of science fiction and fantasy. Inside you'll find information about my novels and short stories, published and forthcoming. More pages will be added soon with extra stuff, pictures, maps...who knows what else.
A new short story of mine features in the second Stargate anthology, Points of Origin.
New novel progress.
Far Horizons, a new Stargate anthology is available now from Fandemonium. It features my story Draw Down The Moon.
From the readers...
The descriptions are vivid and believable, and yet not over-stated. The characterization is dead-on. The plot is intriguing. The pace is perfect. And, the frosting on the cake: sentence structure, word choice, grammar, it's all top-notch!
Your writing is such a joy to read, your pacing is fantastic, your description is picture-perfect (pun intended), and your character development honestly made my jaw drop open. One section in particular made me say, "Oh my GOD!" out loud.
Just an excellent book all around. The author nails the characters without over complicating them and the story is compelling and real with everything from alien technology to harsh combat. Some people might fault this book as being a little dark or violent but I thought it was a very real look at what humans would go through in harsh alien worlds. The author has an excellent style of writing especially when describing alien environments. At times I thought I was reading Frank Herbert. Pick this one up.
