My time-travelling science fiction series The Reality War launches today with Book1: The Slough of Despond.
This is first and foremost science fiction adventure, but there’s also light-touch allegory inspired by The Pilgrim’s Progress. If you liked novels by Stephen Baxter, Alastair Reynolds, or Peter F. Hamilton, I think you will enjoy my series.
I wrote the first part of this book in the local reference section of Bedford Central Library, surrounded by books about or by John Bunyan. The Pilgrim’s Progress quickly began influencing my plotting, though my future and alternate versions of Bunyan’s home village of Elstow would be unrecognisable to him.
The first book is out now for Kindle at amazon.com and amazon.co.uk at a special price of 99c/ 77p, and includes instructions on how to download a free copy of the second book, which will be published at Easter. US and UK paperback editions will be available in the spring.
