The Diamond Roads novels are far-future thrillers for people who like their science fiction hard, twisty and fast-moving. The series kicks off in explosive style with Sons of the Crystal Mind which ends with the wrenching twist that launches The Outer Spheres. You will be devastated by the ending, but don’t worry – the next novel in the sequence, Beautiful Gun, launches later in 2021.
Dread & the Broken Witch is published by Luna Press and you can order it here. A vivid fantasy with a difference, it features a uniquely rude, compelling and feisty heroine as she sets off on an epic quest – from one side of the village to the other.
If you’re a Douglas Adams fan (and who isn’t, really?), then jump into Space Gravy. A dizzying blend of Hitchhiker’s and Bond in a Galactic Great Escape, it’s a chance to explore the stars with your mates, and is essential reading for these locked-down times.
Imelda & the Horned Owl is a fantasy adventure for 7-12 year old fans that I wrote with my daughter, who was eight at the time. The people of Nightshine have been turned into monsters – leaving one brave girl to save the day!
If you enjoy paranormal romance, then get Celebrity Werewolf, which is the strange tale of suave lycanthrope Gig Danvers and his love for brilliant scientist Becky D’Olivera. ‘Fang-sharp science fiction’ – Adam Roberts. ‘Droll and very funny’ – Dave Hutchinson. The audiobook can be got here.
Also published by NewCon Press is the acclaimed anthology London Centric which features my story Commute (‘hugely enjoyable’ – SFCrowsnest). It also includes tales by some of our best SF writers, including Ida Keogh whose entry won the 2021 British Science Fiction Association Best Short Fiction Award.
