I've been following Neal Asher's blog and taking a look at a few bookcases that his bloggers have uploaded to their sites. All of them have an Asher tome or two somewhere upon the shelves and many of them have other authors that I read too. So I thought I'd tidy my bookcase up a little and take a snap. This is how it looks at the moment, it changes regularly as I have to cull some of my collection from time to time, these modern houses just don't have the room!

Free Book

First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone who visits my blog and I hope you have a healthy one too. I've been going over some of the stuff I have written and stored on my PC and decided to publish a SF novella that I wrote quite a few years ago. I dusted it off and slapped a coat of paint on it but it will probably seem a little dated now. I think I started this story around 2000, perhaps even earlier. It's a story of about 60,000 words and I thought it would be a chore to read it off the blog and therefore searched around for another method and came across an excellent site called Issuu which converts your PDFs into a page-flipping book which you can incorporate into your website (I hope!) and will let you manipulate the book by expanding and searching the pages etc.

The title of the story is

A Cloud Of Madness

I hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.
