I thought readers might be interested in seeing what I’m working on and what’s planned.
I’ll update this page from time-to-time and let you know when it happens.

Pax Diktat:

In the far future, an Exodus of humanity has deserted the failing Earth. Rival power-groupings arise among the space colonies and wage war. A peace is imposed (the Pax Diktata) to hold the diverse Empires, Kingdoms, and Republics from interstellar war.

Nothing lasts.

A multi-novel series.

  • Pax Diktat: The origin of the Imposed Peace (Pax Diktat) across human space. (This is a novelty – a “prequel” written before the rest of the series!)
  • All That Was Lost: A collection of short stories exploring the fate of those left behind on Earth as the centuries pass them by.
  • Succession!: Members of the ruling family fight for the throne. The challenger faces the responsibilities of waging a devastating war. (Inspired by the Bhagavad Gita.)
  • Darkout: War comes. Planets are hammered back to the Stone Ages. On one planet, a woman must lead the survivors from strength, no matter what the cost. It won’t be easy.
  • Aftermath: The recovery.
  • The Book of Abri: A novella covering the side adventures of a key character.
  • Unity Rising: A thousand years later, the recovered planet explores space and forms a new coalition of worlds: the Unity. Peace is the plan. But plans are only plans.
  • Unity Falling: Things go wrong
  • Unity Ascendant: Things go right again. Briefly.
  • Beyond Unity: What Unity does next 😉

Compilations and Short Stories:

  • My Worlds: a compilation of my published stories (warning, multi-genre).
  • Space Rocks: a collection of asteroid-related stories, partly completed.

Now you know roughly how long you have to hold your breath for, before my next publication!
