Synopsis

CONNECTED is a speculative fiction thriller with touches of science and philosophy, which reached No.1 in Amazon UK's Bestseller lists for both Thrillers and Science Fiction within 5 days of release.

Beginning with the funeral of a renowned classical violinist in a sleepy rural hamlet in the Lake District, a former theoretical physicist tries to make sense of his brother's suicide. Across the country, a university student, enjoying the unexpected attentions of an enigmatic seductress, is disturbed when his best friend falls to his death from the thirteenth floor of a neighbouring campus tower block.

As each tries to unravel the mystery behind the apparent suicides, they are drawn into an obsessive search for a computer-generated fractal video sequence, with startling effects on human consciousness, and which might just pave the way for discovery of the ultimate Theory of Everything.

However, they are not the only ones to have seen the potential of this mind-altering video, and soon find themselves in a desperate race against time with gangsters from the shadowy worlds of sex, drugs, cyber-crime, and massively multi-player on-line gaming.

Synopsis

ANNIVERSARY EDITION. Revised and Edited. July 2018.
With bonus content - "In Ymir's Halls" (short story)
*********************************************************************

An epic fantasy on another world. With a modern twist.

What if you fell through a crack in reality? Like those people disappearing in plain sight you have read about.

What if you find yourself in a strangely familiar world? A world full of Earth’s mythological beings, lost civilizations, and people from its primitive and brutal past? Where magical energy still exists. Where gods play games among themselves, with the fate of mortal men as pawns. A land where a sword is deadlier than a five-inch thick contract drawn by a hotshot lawyer. Would you survive?

That's Tyler West. Alone, lost and bewildered, the three moons in the sky made it clear he wasn’t on Earth anymore. It is not a game. It’s real. And there's no coffee, pizza, fries, or his favorite show on HBO.

*********************************************************************

View full details

Synopsis

Comprising four intriguing adult, speculative, spiritual and philosophical novellas, which contain a hint of the supernatural - though in these modern fairy or folk tales the fantastic doesn't happen in some remote fantasy world, but right here in this one, in very ordinary, almost everyday circumstances. Four tales for those who like to think about what they are reading.

The Little Dog – a story of good and evil and retribution.

Two foresters find a little dog sitting beside the forest haul-road way out in a remote part of the forest. What is the little dog doing there? As the narrator, a young Bill, tries to ascertain who is his unsavoury workmate, the little dog disappears. Then suddenly events take an unexpected turn and our young naive Bill starts to learn some awful truths.

The Golden Tup - a dreadful tale of paradise being cruelly taken by latent evil.

As the tale opens we learn from Verity that a few years previously a young couple were arrested for killing their new born baby. How could such a nice pair have done such a dreadful thing? Through a series of flashbacks she tells how they bought an old derelict farmhouse and commenced renovating it - creating their own paradise - but the felling of an old tree changed everything. Gradually their paradise was lost, their relationship fell apart and as we already know, they killed their own child. What dark secret was lurking there?

The Crow - a poignant tale of misunderstanding, dying, bitterness and blame.

A dying and embittered old Irish priest, Mad Father Patrick, recounts the school days and subsequent rise of a local councillor and of his involvement in the construction of a dam which flooded a valley. The increasingly mad tale is told with a blend of biblical quotations, philosophical musings and wild fantasy, but how does his story end and just why is the old priest so bitter?

The White Hart - a happy ghost story, if there can be such a thing!

Told by a likeable male chauvinist, bachelor and keen fell-runner, Pete Montague recalls three strange incidents which he initially thought were unconnected. The first is his encounter with a little albino deer. The second is of a chance meeting with a beautiful, but somewhat enigmatic young girl in a remote chapel. And the third ……

Synopsis

Her demonic Angel and other short stories, published in 2016, is a collection of all of my short stories written thus far. This baker's dozen of short stories have been written in a variety of genres so hopefully there should be something for everyone. Some tales are stranger than others, but all could be said to be different shades of dark. Despite its somewhat suggestive title, Her demonic Angel is not erotica.

To whet your appetite, here are the titles of some of the short stories: ‘The boy they called Dragon’, ‘The day nobody gave a damn’, ‘An email from Jane’, ‘Stuff’, ‘Getting rid of the enemy’, ‘Skin’, ‘Too beautiful’, ‘Philately will get you nowhere’, ‘Mirror, mirror’, ‘In memoriam'.

Available in Kindle, paperback, and audiobook editions.

Synopsis

Continuing our lost Archmage's adventures in the world of Adar.

The Void Lands. A place where gods fear to tread. Where strange creatures and fantastic hostile beings emerge. A nexus of dimensions, the origins of which are lost in the mists of time.

To stop the Aztechah Empire’s march to power and domination of the eastern lands, Tyler West, now a First Mage, must confront and defeat the empire’s mysterious patrons - beings of incredible might and magical knowledge. An unavoidable path which leads him right to the Void Lands. Even then, a few detours are required, each dangerous yet crucial.

However, the Void Lands are on the other side of the continent. And to get there, Tyler may have to ask a favor from the Trickster God himself, the Norse deity known as Loki - if he survives being trapped by the sudden wave of attacks from the empire itself, a desperate move to strengthen its position in the wake of a significantly weakened Aztecah pantheon.

Still, things are not that simple. Unknown to the freshly minted First Mage, his actions have led to sinister plots being hastened, new conspiracies, and a shift in the balance of power among the pantheons. Not a good way to start a dangerous journey.

This book includes a brief Compendium of Lore covering notes, definitions, and maps from Books One to Three.

Thomas looks back on the events of his last term at school when his class returned to a new beautiful class teacher, a donation of stuffed animals and birds by an eccentric benefactor which he and his friends subsequently discovered weren't quite as dead as they looked, an exorcism in which a bell-jar which had contained a bat shattered, and then things, which up until then had been strange, turned to being sinister and frightening. What was true? What was the Truth? And of course, where was the bat?

View full details

Synopsis

Gary Troia is a writer, he has also been a bricklayer, a teacher, a philosophy student and a sufferer of several disorders, including: manic depression, alcoholism, fear of flying and a dislike of most people.

After Gary announces that he will no longer fly, his wife, Poppo books a coach holiday to Lake Como. One week later, with the newly acquired kittens dropped off at the cattery, Gary and Poppo embark on a twenty-four hour coach journey to Italy.

Gary always believed the restless, relentless, impossible-to-satisfy voice in his head was one of his greatest assets. It spurred him on. For a while, his strategy worked. But soon the energy of raw emotion would dissipate, and he would be back where he started. What happened next was completely unforeseen. Through a bizarre series of events - involving gangsters, the ICF, deportation from the States, Christian cults and the AA - Gary stumbled upon something that helped him tame the voice in his head: inspirational books. He spent years reading them before having a quiet revolution. Gary’s life was not transformed into a thing of beauty, but he did gain a passion for daily reflection and meditation. While the book itself is a narrative account of a journey to Lake Como, The coach to Como is ultimately the story of survival, recovery and evolution. The book is well crafted, with various threads being skilfully interwoven to give a colourful but incredibly honest account of the journey Gary has undertaken since he came to terms with his ego, his internal struggles with life, loneliness, rebelliousness and self-destructive behaviour.

View full details

Synopsis

Many words, concepts, and sentences seem obvious to us; it feels like we know what they mean, and we do not really stop to see if we do. Often once an actual effort is done and we try to put our "knowing" into words, we find things are not that simple.
Many times once an accurate definition is sought, the intricacies of concepts reveal themselves.
Many times when trying to explain an "understood" sentence, we find out it has some hidden folds, and we may have to define some of its parts better, or maybe we uncover another avenue of thought it provokes.
“Innocent Thoughts” discusses such instances and avenues, from world peace to the enigmas of consciousness and free will. Diving into these subjects, “Innocent Thoughts” tries to distill and present some of the current views about our universe.

Book cover image for Citizens Not Slaves : The Rise Of The 99%
View full details

Synopsis

All over the world, the 99% are slowly awakening to their enslavement by the 1% Power Elite. The internet has empowered ordinary people with more freedom to exchange information than ever before. The worldwide web could be described as a ‘get out of jail card’ from the constant barrage of misinformation and outright state propaganda that spews forth from the mainstream media on a daily basis. As the gap between the ultra-rich and the poor ever widens; as corporations increasingly dictate their agendas to governments who in turn clamp-down even further on their citizens basic human rights and privacy – then no wonder the world looks to be spiralling downwards into a state of total chaos. That’s how things look on the surface at least; but within these pages I’ll present the case that the global turmoil we experience every day is actually being controlled by unseen hands. This book also highlights positive activism; focussing on the concept of ‘Citizens Not Slaves’ as a growing global idea open to anyone who wishes to embrace it. Each chapter details a multitude of social-political problems; including brief historical outlines of how and why they happened. I also put forth possible solutions to those problems as well. It doesn’t have to be read ‘cover to cover’ – feel free to delve in at any chapter and read it in any order that works for you. If you’re already well versed in a particular historical background, simply skip that part and move on to any part that tweaks your interest. Simply take what you like from this book and disregard the rest. I hope the contents might also inspire you to do your own research on any topic within or lead you on to investigate something related and at the end of the day, draw your own conclusions. Throughout the following pages, I hope to convince you that we can be either free ‘citizens’ [pro-active] or ‘slaves’ [passive] by our own choosing. I will also be putting forth that ‘democratic-meritocracy’ is the best political model for the future that fills all the seismic gaps in the aftermath, left by every underground call for revolution. Seán Gearárd McCloskey "This heartfelt work discusses how the 99% has been kept down by the 1% “Global Power Elite,” looking at historical examples primarily in Great Britain and Scotland, and how the 99% might change the future to level the playing field..." - The Book Review Directory [www.bookreviewdirectory.com]

Synopsis

If the Voyager 1 space probe was picked up in outer space by extraterrestrials, what would happen? Here's your opportunity to find out.

Voyager 1 was launched by NASA in 1977 to study the outer solar system and, ultimately, interstellar space. It carried a gold-plated audio-visual disc in the event that it might be found by intelligent life-forms from other planetary systems. It was discovered by goopmutt bandits who towed it through interstellar space at superluminal speed. In an effort to conceal their crime, they manipulated the data on the craft’s digital tape recorder and left it in the heliosphere where its signal could still be picked up from Earth. Eventually, they abandoned the probe in the Centaurus galaxy where it was picked up by two itinerant spacecombers from a small circumbinary planet known as Morys Minor.

Synopsis

Treacherous secrets – keep them or share them? A difficult decision but honesty is the best policy. Isn't it?

What if your secrets are so dangerous they could destroy the one you love?

Prospero is prepared to tell Leonie most of his past – if he can find her – but one of his secrets could send her running again. Another could destroy any future they might have. And one could kill her. Dare he risk it?

Leonie is terrified of the consequences of sharing any of her past with anyone. But not even Leonie knows the secrets that her very existence contains.

Gabriel is starting to discover the secrets inherent in Leonie and they could tear the world apart. Who does he turn to, and who should he share them with? If he tells the wrong person he could seal not just Leonie’s death warrant but those of millions more.

And no one has told Leonie the mystery of her necklace. When she discovers that, will she sacrifice everything and risk all that Gabriel has been working for?
