The way our prisons are run is something we should all be concerned about.

Ian Hitchings has written about about one of the most horrendous cases in recent memory of how sometimes are prisons are not well run.

Read his blog post about his book.

For the next five days my short story anthology “Fragments” is available for free lending from the Kindle library.

Still extremely excited about the project to find earth-like planets and the latest news is as usual very interesting.

Though, these new finds appear not to be in the “habitable zone” it is still pretty cool we can find planets smaller than Mercury in star systems 200 light years away.

The real talking point about this project is that it means we can figure out in the near term where to point radio telescopes to “listen” for signs of extraterrestrial life.

And in the longer term , when we start to explore the Galaxy, we’ll know which stars to head towards in the hope of finding life of one sort or another.

The first chapter of The Joy of Ex is below as a free PDF to have a sample of what the novel is about.


The book is available from AmazonĀ in Kindle and paperback.
