The short story anthology "Lucky or Unlucky?", containing my tale "Lucky Bill" is available now. Click HERE for more information as well as a sneak peak inside.
Sleet James is a man like any other, striving to withstand
the rigours of the modern world, until his life is turned upside
down by the startling arrival of terrifying other-wordly creatures -
Demonic in appearance and frighteningly powerful, they
prowl the streets and the skies of nightime London, preying
upon the innocent - draining their very essence, reducing
them to lifeless husks. What is their purpose, and can
they be opposed? Left bitter and vengeful by the murder
of his brother, Sleet dedicates his existence to finding out.
Part 2 continues with the
addition of Chapter 17
I've collated my inate scribblings together on this site - a completely selfish enterprise, but one that I am more than willing to share with anyone who wishes to partake!
Feel free to click on the above links where you can find all chapters to date of my current works in progress, Duplicity and Shadow on the Sun. In addition, I aim to compile a collection of short stories. Give me time though, It's an extremely sparse comodity these days!
I also intend to provide some background information and some explanation of the development of the stories and in particular Shadow on the Sun.
Much of what you will find herein can also be viewed within the pages of the excellent Orion's Child, the online science fiction and fantasy magazine (to whom I am greatly indebted) and also within the Stories section of SFFWorld.com where, indeed, a vast storehouse of extremely varied and impressive works can be found.
All the Best,
