My stories have been appearing in magazines and anthologies since 1990.  I have published six novels and two short story collections, with a third collection due out in January.  The Turing Test, won the Edge Hill Short Fiction Award in 2009.  Dark Eden was  the winner of the 2012 Arthur C. Clarke award. My latest novel is America City.

This site provides details of all my published books and stories.  I am a somewhat intermittent blogger.  Blog post which I think might be of slightly more enduring interest than the others are marked as BEST POSTS.

 

Just out: 

AMERICA CITY.  ‘An uneasy read that manages to feel both timely and urgent.’  Liz Jensen, The Guardian.  (I’ll be talking about it on Radio 2 Book Club on Monday 27th Nov)

Now available:

EDEN’S STORY: all three Eden novels as a single ebook.

DAUGHTER OF EDEN: now available as an audio book, read by Imogen Church

Forthcoming:
