A Parking Junta?

In view of the recent news article concerning the charges for dropping people off at the airports, I thought I'd share the first chapter of The Fourteenth Adjustment with you.
The story begins when part-time private investigator, ale-slinger and inventor of the first zero-footprint footprint tries to drop his lady-friend off at Kanye West Airport. There are new parking restrictions in place...

Countdown to Omega

Currently completed and with the editor is a standalone novel taking us right back to the origins of the Nephilim, as seen in 'Strangers with the Eyes of Men'. It was too good an opportunity to miss, what with the questions as to whether the 'gods' as witnessed by our forefathers were really simply visitors from another world.
'Countdown to Omega' begins with an alien escape pod crash-landing on the peaceful planet of An-ki. Why wouldn't the pilots be revered, with their advanced technology, god-like appearance and foppish hairstyles? Of course, they are not the first to arrive, and their advance party are violently keen to make sure they don't report back what they have been up to.
Caught in the conflict is one of the locals, given a piece of the alien technology when a child. Will she be able to stop the visitors taking her haven down with them?
Calling on historical records, myths and logic, the story explores first contact and the far-reaching effects on the indigenous population, as well as exploring the origins of homo-sapiens itself.

The Fourteenth Adjustment

The fifth book in the Dan series, The Fourteenth Adjustment is shockingly starting to come true. The UK Government are working on the Parking (Code of Practice) Bill. Chief exec (of The British Parking Association) Andrew Pester (that really is his name), said that a "single, mandatory code of practice across the whole sector is important, to ensure that unscrupulous providers don't undermine the parking sector with bad practice." Maybe the the kickback in the Dan universes against the rise of car-parking juntas, the proliferation of traffic revenue cameras, and the persecution of the common person will be reflected in the real world, but then when has reality ever made sense? The Fourteenth Adjustment is the fifth in the Dan series of bawdy, satirical and topical sci-fi, and is an adventure on its own. Here is a glossary (PDF) of the characters, to give you an idea of what to expect.

Animal Rescue

North Cyprus, One Man in a Bus has been republished with monochrome pictures. The full colour version of the pictures is on this web site. The big advantage is that it is half the price - find it here! Another advantage is that the author, although not currently living in TRNC, does have local people checking out that the information is still relevant for you.
50% of the royalties from all the North Cyprus books are being donated to Kyrenia Animal Rescue. Nearly £100 was raised in 2016, but a little less last year. If you would like to donate, anything you can spare would be gratefully received. They even have a UK bank for transfers.
