Old style Sci-Fi is what I enjoy. Isaac Asimov, Phillip K Dick, Robert Heinlein, John Wyndam .....Five very different stories here to tickle your fancy (assuming your fancy needs tickling).

I started writing on Wattpad when I first joined around 3 years ago to see how I'd get on with something I'd always wanted to do. After a fair few failures I found that my forte seemed to be Sci-Fi short stories with The Dream Factory (originally Setting Suns) getting more readers than I could ever have hoped for. Some of the stories have since been picked up and used by Sci-Fi websites around the world- and hopefully one will be published as part of an anthology later this year -so I've been lucky.

Setting Suns is a series of short stories where I have tried to capture the spirit of the writers above. I hope I've done them justice.

The Shadow of the Moon -is a tale based on the short story 'Forgotten Gods' . If you like your Sci-Fi with a splash of adventure try this story about a young girl on an archaeological dig on an off world planet. It features an Empathe, a good humoured killer Priest, a mad assassin, a god and a monster (and the end of human civilisation just for good measure).

And just to add a bit of variety, Wonga is a comedy (not Sci-Fi) about a put upon Agent working for MI5 , the British Intelligence Services.

I write for enjoyment and have no aspirations other than people read what I write, find it interesting and have a go at writing for themselves. I think everyone has a great tale in them and the short story is a great way to start to explore your writing skills.

If you want to get a flavour of the type of stories I write try Stranger Things, a few short tales set in the near future.

Happy writing!

Wattpad are interviewing writers as part of their Open Novella Contest. There are lots of tips from loads of writers there. I've been asked to give mine (hope they are helpful!).   https://www.wattp...
