A word from the Author
Having a collection of stories in your head eventually reaches a crisis point, you begin to run out of space. Remembering to pick up milk on the way home is replaced by rapier wielding Victorian explorers, turning steampunk mechanisms against a horde of vampyres, in the cold misty back streets of London; or a race against time to bring engines on-line on a starship, before the rocky debris of shattered planet tears through the hull.
The time has come for me to let off some steam, release some of the ever increasing pressure on my skull, and set loose some of my deliriums upon the unsuspecting world. Hope you enjoy them!
What’s it all about?
A new series of sci-fi and horror tales is coming in the form of The Astonishing Adventures. In a world where creatures of legend are real, and fantasy is fact, astonishing adventures abound! Follow Victorian gentleman, inventor, and master swordsman, Heracles Flint, as he and his team of 19th century knights battle the forces of darkness. Adventures that begin on the cobblestoned streets of late 1800s London, and race to distant worlds far into the future.
