Hey!! What's the story?
Snippet #3 from Temporal Tome
The Tiger was perched at the back of the boat. For a large cat it didn’t seem to mind the sea spray washing over it. In fact it looked as if it was enjoying it. The crew of the Saxon longboat had never seen a Tiger before and most of them would be happy if they never saw one again, but while it was here on their vessel they had no choice but to put up with it.
Mad Manon had given them their sailing orders after it became clear…Continue

England is full of demons, or so the papers keep saying. The government always deny it, they say demons don't exist, they're just a media invention to unsettle the masses. I didn't know what to think at first, I'd never seen a demon and neither had anyone else I know.
My husband told me not to worry about demons, even though some…Continue
Professor Turner, Master of Invisible Geographies, was not a man to risk his life putting together a reading list for his senior students. He’d much rather risk their lives and many an Invisible Geography student has had to be rescued by a search party over the years because of the Professor’s zeal for rare manuscripts.

But Death was reluctant to deal the Hero a fatal blow. It just kept on tapping him on the head with the top of…Continue

‘I’m fed up of moons. Haven’t set foot on a planet in years.’
‘There was Ceres,’ Kane says. Mars in her visor blurring her pale face red.
‘Doesn’t count.’ Why should it? It’s just as dull and dusty as this potato.
‘Keep your voice down. You’ll hurt its feelings.’
Kane has a soft spot for Ceres, or, more accurately, for the view of Jupiter from there.
We were assigned to the first manned mission to Europa, five years from now. So here we are, back on Phobos…Continue
