What It Means To Survive – Short Story Coming Soon
I have always wanted to write short stories that have nothing at all to do with Beyond the Wall. Narrow pieces of fiction with a theme, character or setting which excites me. A single pulse which resonates through a story which can be read in a few hours. Science fiction is perfect for stories like that – Philip K. Dick's Adjustment Team and The Minority Report, for example, have been made into big Hollywood films, but there are so many more by him.
Last week, I wrote an 11,000 word short which I have called What It Means To Survive. This the blurb:

It's with Alex Roddie now for editing, and will be published on November 10th, a week before Defiance comes out. Anyone who subscribes to my mailing list gets it for free. Otherwise, it'll be 99c on Amazon.
Here's the cover:
