the Recluse

I’m in Turkey attempting to get some serious writing done on the current work in progress.
Ensconced in self-imposed isolation—

If I wander too far an enormous inflatable lobster drags me back to the keyboard. (I have noticed that the watchers can’t seem to tell the difference between productive writing and wasting time in photoshop.)

I am making all books stand alone for a while, they will be all set in the same universe [The Plurality] but do not need to be consumed in any fixed order. The working title for this one is Holocene. Assigning a genre is going to be tough, it’s morphed into a Hard Science Fiction, paleo-punk, ‘who-done-it?’

The pic is probably a spoiler, but you won’t be able to work it out anyway… 😘

Live Novel Writing


The Worldbuilding for my ‘Plurality’ universe is growing with each new book. I use a Knowledgebase while I am writing to keep track of names, technology, locations, etc.

In the past, many readers had requested a Glossary and Dramatis Personæ so I decided a while ago to make the full knowledge base available in the ‘Member Zone‘.

Lately, things were getting a little out of control, so I just spent a few hours tidying things up and adding tags etc. The interface is not ideal, a user cannot filter by tags, so I have made some links here that will take you directly to a full list of articles according to the tags below:

Singularity’s Children


The Plurality

Anthropocene — Anthropocene is the working title of my new book. I would consider anything in this section a **SPOILER** at this point, but if you want to watch the articles accumulate as a sort of ‘live view’ of the novel writing process—while not getting anything but oblique glimpses of the narrative itself—please be my guest! 🙂

NEW BOOK!! — Saloa Published!

Another one in the bag!
Saloa is published and available from Amazon and Gumroad!

The story is set in the same universe (…or plurality/multiverse/continuum, take your pick) as the Singularity’s Children books, but a century or so further into the future:

“In the 22nd Century, humanity has spread across the solar system. From the inner Golden Lands to the frozen Second Belt: klans, kults, and corporations live by a diverging set of laws and norms.

At the edge, descendants of the distributed communities who fought the war of ReImagination, live their best lives, following the ‘Self Evident Truths’—a social pact and warrior’s code.

Responding to a message from her dead husband, forsaking her Klan, compelled by an unassailable sense of what is right, Leimeiê, Tamura and their Zenolect companions must embark on an eleven billion kilometre rescue mission. A voyage from the remote cold of the Second Belt, through the Golden Lands, to ancient, decadent Saloa…”
