My name didn't make the cover but it's what's inside that counts 😉 Hi lovely readers. Yes, I know I've been conspicuously absent lately. Unfortunately writing's had to take a back seat thanks to the builder renovating my new house deciding to bugger off mid-project. (That can be a story for another day!) Today, however,… Continue reading “What Happened to 70?” published in Best of British Science Fiction 2020 anthology from NewCon Press
In 2011, Swedish divers discovered a baffling object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. One that bears an uncanny resemblance to the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars and makes electrical equipment stop working when you get too close. Say it with me: whaaaat? During an expedition to find an old shipwreck in the summer,… Continue reading Did a UFO crash into the Baltic Sea?
I had planned today to share a few quick updates on where I am with the Million Eyes series, not expecting my publisher, Elsewhen Press, to email me this morning with their release schedule for Million Eyes II: The Unraveller! So I can now officially reveal that the book will be published in July as… Continue reading Million Eyes II: The Unraveller to be released in July!
The strange and gruesome deaths of nine skiers in the Ural Mountains in 1959 have been blamed on abominable snowmen, aliens, government agents and ‘Artic dwarves’ at one time or another.

We will probably… Continue reading What caused nine hikers to slash up their tent, flee half-naked in snow, and die horribly?
Earlier this month, a new article of mine was published on Time Travel Nexus (the first in a while thanks to Covid setbacks at the site). It's a new Time Travel Nexus Investigates article, a fun column where I look at real-life alleged cases of time travel such as Rudolph Fentz, the Charlie Chaplin Time… Continue reading Is the Mandela Effect evidence of time travellers? New Time Travel Nexus article published
Being unable to see anyone or go anywhere (thank you Covid) has led my girlfriend and I to spend our weekends working on our collaborative novel. And since the novel is a sci-fi set in space with a ton of aliens, I thought I ought to get my head in aliens and space for this… Continue reading Britain’s Roswell: The Berwyn Mountain UFO crash
In every legend, there’s an element of truth. So what is the truth behind the anti-Santa, Krampus? For the uninitiated, Krampus is the half-demon, half-goat companion of St Nicholas whose name derives from the German word Krampen, meaning ‘claw’. He bears horns, fur, fangs and a long tongue, and he carries chains, bells and a… Continue reading The truth behind the Christmas monster, Krampus
I’ve been writing about conspiracy theories since 2014. Back then, speculating about whether Diana was murdered, JFK was shot from the grassy knoll and NASA have been lying for decades about the shape of the Earth, was fun. To be fair, imagining what evil deeds powerful people might be committing behind the curtains still is… Continue reading How Trump made conspiracy theories less fun

One gets invited by a… Continue reading New Million Eyes short story published in anthology “The Thing About Seventy”
On a clear, chilly night in April, a tragedy occurred in the North Atlantic. An “unsinkable” British passenger liner, the world’s largest ship, crashed into an iceberg on its starboard side and did the very thing they said it couldn’t: sank. Due to the insufficient amount of lifeboats, it took most of the passengers with… Continue reading The man who predicted the Titanic disaster (and other WTF premonitions)
My lovely newsletter readers will know that I've been using this crazy, weird year to make extra progress on Million Eyes II, the second installment of the Million Eyes trilogy. And it's worked, too. I'm much further ahead than I would've been had Covid-19 not forced a temporary halt to almost everything else in my… Continue reading Updates on the Million Eyes Series
