Over the last few days I have been putting the finishing touches to a collection of three short stories, which I shall be putting up onto Amazon, Smashwords and other places in the near future. The stories are all set in the not-too-distant future, and they touch on subjects such as genetic manipulation, a world without oil and “designer euthanasia”. If you’re a genre-obsessive then you’d probably call it “speculative fiction”.
One exciting thing about it is that my fellow Kindle All Star and not-too-far-away-neighbour Tony Healey has designed me a fantastic cover for it, which you can see just over there.
It’s fantastic. I love it. He’s managed to capture the feel of the stories in the anthology and translate the main themes into a visual style that I like (not an easy task, as I am monumentally fussy).
Meeting people like Tony has been one of the many unexpected benefits of being involved with the Kindle All Stars project. You can find Tony at Fringe Scientist.
Anyway, if you’d like to receive an advance review copy of Distant Machines then please get in touch and let me know…
