Grand Experiment Book 7: Apocrypha Sequence: Inferno

And last, but certainly not least, the final book in the Grand Experiment is Apocrypha Sequence: Inferno. The stories in Inferno chart the invasion of Australia by daikaiju-sized monsters and the subsequent fall of civilisation. Unlike the other books in the Sequence, these stories in Inferno are linked by characters and share the same world. Price: […]

Grand Experiment Book 6: Apocrypha Sequence: Insanity

To jump slightly out of alphabetical order, book 6 in the Grand Experiment (and the third in the Apocrypha Sequence) is Insanity. Originally, this was to feature my Cthulhu Mythos-inspired stories, but when I chose to publish Requiem for the Burning God separately, which took the guts out of a Mythos collection (for now … one […]

Price: $0.99 ISBN: 9780987076847 Blurb: Apocrypha Sequence: Divinity explores the fallibility of the […]

Grand Experiment addendum

Just an addendum to my Grand Experiment ground rules. All of my e-books will be DRM free and lending rights will be enabled (for the Amazon Kindle versions). I believe in e-book freedom, and while I understand this will make piracy easier, I’m also trusting that the majority will buy my books in good faith.

Grand Experiment Book 4: Apocrypha Sequence: Deviance

Now things get really interesting. The remaining four books in my Grand Experiment are something of an experiment themselves. The Apocrypha Sequence is a series of dark fantasy mini-collections with interwoven themes and interconnected stories. Why ‘Apocrypha’? The Sequence is outside the continuity of my ‘regular’ collections, Shards (flash fiction) and the forthcoming The Abandonment of Grace […]
