Books

I just finished The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu and oh boy. My brain turned to goo and dribbled out of my ears. In a good way, mark you. Highly recommended.

My first two novels, Dead Cat Bounce and Peter and Mary Have a Row, are now available as ebooks on the Kindle store. They were published quite a while ago – in 2001 and 2002, respectively – so I’m delighted to see them appear in this fancy new electric format that all the young people are so excited about. You can read their blurbs on my Books page.

Ah, memories.
