Million Eyes II ebook coming a little later than planned (but cover reveal and official blurb coming this Friday!)

Sorry for the long gaps between posting, but as my newsletter readers already know, writing has been forced to plummet down my list of important things these past four months. Moving and renovating a house has proven one of the most stressful things I've ever done (of course, it would've been far less so had… Continue reading Million Eyes II ebook coming a little later than planned (but cover reveal and official blurb coming this Friday!)

“What Happened to 70?” published in Best of British Science Fiction 2020 anthology from NewCon Press

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

Did a UFO crash into the Baltic Sea?

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?

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. Known as the Dyatlov Pass incident, it is probably Russia’s biggest unsolved mystery, continuing to incite rampant speculation to this day. 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).

The truth behind the Christmas monster, Krampus

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

Conspiracy Theories

How Trump made conspiracy theories less fun

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
