Finally I have some quality time to give my book a push. Which includes making this blog look like it’s mine rather than any-old-body’s … The header’s pretty flash, eh? It’s an extraction of the cover artwork, which was created (at light speed!) by my very dear friend David Baxter. Talented man. Hope you like it.

The book – Is death really necessary? – is science fiction-ish. It’s driven by characters that are more anti than hero, it deals with the end of personal petrol-based transportation as we know it, multi-drug resistant tuberculosis. Dysfunctional romances are plentiful, as are golf carts. You can get it from Also online from WH Smith or Waterstones. If you’re in the States you can get it from or Barnes & Noble online.

This is the back cover copy :

“In 2038 the enormous potential of nanonics has finally been realised. Now it can heal the terminally sick at a molecular level. Terrorists can also use it to turn vital petrol supplies into something resembling molasses. This is the story of what happens when white nanonics meets black nanonics.”

And this is a couple of review extracts, also on the back cover:

“The plot is intriguing and suspenseful … this author could clearly develop into a major voice in the sci-fi thriller field.” (Publishers Weekly)

“It’s a writer’s maxim that there are no original ideas: what matters is how you handle the old ones. Nanotech has been in the news and in fiction for some time, as either a miracle solution or apocalyptic destruction. The author wisely puts the characters in the foreground with nanotech as one aspect of the social and political setting – but a crucial aspect. I was reminded of Theodore Sturgeon’s work.” (Barbara Gordon,

Hi there, I hope you find something to interest you here. In December 2017 I published my fourth book – ‘Wonders will never cease’. It’s a satirical campus novel set in the fictional Ariel University in 1985. If you enjoyed Tom Sharpe’s Porterhouse novels, Willy Russell’s ‘Educating Rita’, David Lodge’s campus novels or Malcolm Bradbury’s ‘The History Man’ back in the day, you may enjoy revisiting the ivory towers of 1980s’ academe thirty years on. See what you think. “It is December, 1985. The year is winding gently towards its close until Fergus Girvan, a Classicist at Ariel University, finds his research has been stolen by the man who is also seeking to steal his daughter. But which man is, actually, the more unscrupulous of the two? And is there hope for either of them?” In the autumn of 2015 I published a volume of short fiction: 'Ice Cold Passion and other stories'. I am also the author of novella 'Little Mouse', a shortish piece of historical fiction which I published in 2014 and, a sequel to it, 'Is death really necessary?', my eco thriller set in the near future and which, confusingly, I published in 2009. All the books are available from all good online bookshops and FeedARead on paper, and as e-books on Kindle. On a semi-regular basis, and about a month after the event, I post here reviews which I do for Big Al & Pals, the premier reviewer of indie books, based in the States. My interests tend to thrillers, SF, magic realism and other quirky stuff. On this blog are also posted the reviews I did for Leighton Buzzard Music Club over some five years up to the end of 2015. LBMC present annual seasons of eight monthly chamber music concerts at the Library Theatre in Leighton Buzzard, Bucks. They select young musicians just beginning to make their name - and the concerts are usually magnificent. I was very proud to be associated with them. I review other music, books, theatre and exhibitions which I've particularly enjoyed. BTW - it says the link to Facebook is broken. I dispute that. Click it and see, why not?
