Latest Newsletter: More free books – whenever are you going to be able to read them all?

How are you doing? I’m doing pretty well, though it’s a tad cold outside.

News Item 1. (Happy Face)

I’m a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy books group and the hard working  organiser Dean F Wilson has arranged a giveaway of 100+ free sci-fi and fantasy books. With a hundred plus, you are going to love some of them, it’s just statistics.

They’re hosted by Instafreebie so they can deliver you the book in any format that will work for you.

Here’s a link below

It’s a limited six day giveaway so if you want these books, get clicking! (I am about to download a bunch of them myself)


In other news, I’ve been on the stepladders today putting up Christmas lights while Sheila is at work. We spent a day walking round a forest picking up artistic pine cones (I had to have directions as to which ones these were) and then she sprayed them and made lovely winter wonderland decorations. Some of these came off when I was putting up the lights and I can’t get them back up so they’ll stay. She doesn’t know this yet.

Anyway, I hope you’re well and getting on with holiday preparations (if you are making any) for whichever and whatever festival you celebrate.

Best wishes


Robocalpyse – Sci-Fi post apocalpytic novel

I’ve been reading around because of my series Darkworlds. I plan to put the first draft chapter of Darkworlds Paris on this site when it’s ready. As you know, or maybe you don’t, Darkworlds is LitRPG and it’s horror LitRPG and also sci-fi LitRPG, because the horror is in the game and the premise is that rogue AIs (just like Elon Musk warned us!) are breeding in the code of the game.  MMOs and especially Virtual Reality MMOs may end up using millions if not billions of lines of code and a lot of it will be legacy code. Some of the code the powers RPG engines goes back to the early MUDs and MUSHs.

Anyway, in Darkworlds, the AIs go crazy so I was looking for a similar AI apocalyptic story and found Robocalpyse, by chance really in a local bookstore.  I’m really enjoying it so I thought I’d share a preview of it here. I must admit I don’t love the cover, though I guess it’s maybe supposed to be a Slow Sue…

Interestingly this preview is only in French. (C’est formidable, naturellement, mais qu’en est-il des anglophones?)
