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'm a bit of a traveller when I get the chance; New Zealand, Fiji, Montenegro, Bali, The States and loads more. Usually I travel on the cheap, sleeping on beaches, in trains etc. I once slept overnight in a graveyard (at least it was peaceful!). I always take as many books as I can when I go.

So if you comment on any of my stories I'm always interested to hear where you are.

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. Some of the stories have been published in foreign language Sci-Fi periodicals.

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!
