My stories have been appearing in magazines and anthologies since 1990.  I have published six 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 latest novel is America City.  My latest short story collection is Spring Tide.

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.

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