We’re back in sunny Hampshire: as often seems to happen, going on holiday has left me mentally refreshed but physically exhausted. That’s probably the right way round, though.

While I was away a somewhat atypical story of mine, ‘A Mirror to Life’ has been posted up at ‘DayBreak’ magazine, the online story website for the recently released and already much acclaimed ‘Shine’ anthology of near-future optimistic SF. Yes, I know, I don’t usually write near-future optimistic SF; like I say, a somewhat atypical story. You can read it, or download it for free, right here.

    Is it set in the PoA universe?

    Will you ever escape slurs on your reputation?

      That would be: ‘No’ and ‘No’.

      ‘A Mirror to Life’ isn’t set in the Hidden Empire universe; it’s a stand-alone. It’s actually one of my earliest stories, the last one with a hand-written the first draft – written, in fact, at all all-day Blues festival, which is where that steel guitar came from.
