Essential Reading in Science Fiction contains 24 short science fiction stories that are fast, action packed, varied, entertaining and easy to read.

In Battle at Time’s End, Times Guardian makes one last throw of the dice against Fate, calling on a great champion from the past. In The Tribunal, the Galactic War Tribunal operates under a quite different basis to Nuremburg. The Safest Place in the Universe is just that, though for different reasons than you might think.

The child of an alien shapeshifter father and Earth mother is of considerable importance to human history in The Shifter Child. In Star Ravagers impossibly alien life forms seek to consume our Sun, while in Final Revenge the rape of future humanity is avenged. An extra-dimensional visitor seeks to help an Earth besieged by both aliens and alien gods in A Long Way from Home. While to the advanced inhabitants of Lhorran 4, Visitor 51347 is not at all what he seems to be. In Internet Writer a reclusive writer achieves fame beyond his wildest dreams, without even knowing it


In the 7 years I have been writing speculative fiction I have written more than 120 speculative fiction short stories.

My publications include six collections of short stories and two novellas. All of which are on Amazon. My most recent publication is “Daughter of the High Lords and other Speculative Fiction Stories.” Published in July 2014.

I have been a regular contributor to both the Antipodean SF and the Beam Me Up Pod cast sites and am fast becoming a regular to the Farther Stars Than These site. I have also been published on a variety of other sci-fi sites including Bewildering Stories, 365 Tomorrows sites, and the former Golden Visions magazine.

I have written two sci-fi series: the 12 part “Alien Hunter” series for then Golden Visions Magazine in 2011/12 and the “Trathh” series for the Beam Me Up Pod Cast site in 2012/13.

I am currently writing a new (as yet unnamed) collection of speculative fiction short stories and also a “Human Hunter” series (the first four stories in the arc have been published) for the Beam Me Up Pod Cast site.
