All of my work is available for free as digital downloads. Why? Well – for the short version – I do what I do because I love what I’m doing. In the past I have tried to market my work commercially, even sent it to a few agents but to be honest the reality of doing that is a joyless one. I write what I want to write, I enjoy sharing it and the more people can get their hands on it the better. I don’t want to have the joys of creating something get caught up in the rigours of trying to create something sell-able. Nor do I think the measure of any creative work is in it’s commercial reception, especially when it’s one of the few aspects of the human experience where that can still be said.
If you enjoy what I do though and want to support it then spreading the word is always good and you will see donation buttons dotted around the place. You can also buy hard copies of some work. I do sell my visual/design work over at LaikaRevolution.com too- art being a different sort of beast to writing.
Anyway – enjoy.
Crashed America (Novel)
When Joe sets off for those United States of America he has a whole list of plans, dreams, schemes and delusions to be lived out against an idealised Americana backdrop. Killing Jesus isn’t exactly among them but, as ever, life does its own thing.
No Cure for Shell Shock (Prose & Poetry)
No Cure for Shell Shock is intended as the antithesis to the war story. Each part of this collection of poetry and short pieces was designed to search for those lost, silent moments which shape the human experience of conflict but which are left unmarked and uncommented on in the aftermath.
Laikanist Times (Novella)
Laikanist Times is the story of one planet divided by a few million years and a fistful of species divides. While the Bald Chimps are seeing apparitions and finding God (or possibly Dog) the dogs are indulging in some quantum meddling and the humans? Well, they had their time.
Lifer (Short Story)
An introduction to a universe where death is a memory and life an eternal blessing, or burden, on an immaculate Earth. A short Sci Fi story which blends in the implications of life extension with the realities of human variety.
