New book coverMy stories have been appearing in magazines and anthologies since 1990.  I have published seven novels and three short story collections.  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 most recent novel is America City.  My latest short story collection is Spring Tide.  My next novel, Beneath the World, a Sea, will come out in April, 2019.

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.

Most recent books: 

JALI: My story ‘When Do We Get There?’ (read by Clare Corbett) is one of six stories in this new audio collection from Audible.

AMERICA CITY.  ‘An uneasy read that manages to feel both timely and urgent.’  (Liz Jensen, The Guardian.)  NOW OUT IN PAPERBACK.

SPRING TIDE:  ‘Chris Beckett’s stunning third collection’ (Eric Brown, The Guardian).(America City and Spring Tide are both now available also as audio books.)


BENEATH THE WORLD, A SEA: My seventh novel, out in April 2019.
