Things take a turn for the worst in the second part of the Psytopia trilogy, where we pay a visit to the twisted urban sprawl of the Tapestry; a place stuck in the mists of time and where nothing is... More > quite what it seems. Well if everything was what it seems there'd be no point writing fiction about it, would there? If you see hand-stitched beasties, depraved gimps with Victorian gizmos and gun-toting, parasol twirling gothic lolitas in your real world, you're as twisted as a Tapestarian.
Side-stepping the colourful landscape of the Psytopian plateau and all but abandoning the first episode's characters, this book is more like a claustrophobic Grimm's fairytale set under the corrosive ghostcloud which darkens the Tapestry.
Join a raggle-taggle bunch of gimps and glums and they attempt to unravel the secrets of their freaky little world, or die trying, at least.< Less
'Ascension' is a dark, twisted, punky, funky kind of sci-fi.
It's set on a world contained within a huge tower. Hell is at the bottom, Heaven at the top, and probably both largely in her... More > head.
Frakture is a humanoid being born limbless who can swap appendages at will. And she was born in Hell so there's no surprise she's on her way to Heaven.
But as she ventures across the weird and wonderful surrealist landscapes of Babel with only her fiery determination to guide her, you way well find yourself asking the same questions of your life as she does of her's.
How much better does your life have to get before you give up pushing yourself and accept what you've got?

'Crimson Harvest' is a unique book of sound-bites and stanzas. Set in a world with a technological past and an agricultural present, 'Psytopia' is a light hearted look at the 'swords and sorcery'... More > genre from a new perspective.
Set out on a journey across the shifting plateaus of the Psytopian arpeggio with a freaky collection of typical genre characters and witness their bizzare world.
The twists in 'Psytopia' will most likely break the heroes' world in two as they realise that you can be taught everything you need to know... Then the wide, wild world comes along and tears your preconceptions apart.
Full of vivid imagery, pop culture nods, quotable dialogue and written more like a Lonely Planet travel guide than a novel, this first part of the 'Psytopia' trilogy is a vibrant, rhythmic jaunt across strange lands, and carves its place in a sub-genre usually seen only in video games and manga.This is the full length, full size print 700 page version; not for pocketsies!< Less

Benedict is a scientific genius experimenting in hyperspace theory and quantum... More > mechanics.
Like most geniuses, he’s probably a little crazy, but you have to be a little crazy to get anywhere in this world.
Lucky his fresh faced assistant Hazel is there to keep him grounded.

He might discover he gets more than he bargained for…< Less
'Ascension' is a new kind of sci fi.
It's dark, gothy cyberpunk, with a twist or two in the tail.
Set in a tower with Heaven at the top and Hell at the bottom, Frakture is a humanoid creature able to... More > swap limbs at will as she ascends towards the top.
Her bizzare struggles are not dissimilar to those we face in our own lives, the question being when do you give up and settle for what you've got?
NOTE: This is the first edition and only really continues to exist as its where all the original copyrights are held. Don't buy it- it's a stupidly large print which is only good as a draft extractor- buy the second edition!< Less
Final part of the 'Psytopia' Tridagio.
On completing their assignments, the Blitzblades return to the Academy and fall headlong into a murder investigation. Meanwhile, the hermit Principal... More > Zarathustra embarks on a trip which may well culminate in the end of the wide, wild world as we know it. The straight-laced Principal and the misfit girl gang are bound to cross paths; it's just part of the predictable rhythm of the universe and stuff.
But Remedy starts to realise that with the help of that mysterious little blue girl, she's been throwing the odd broken beat into the mix so maybe she can skewer things. Order or Anarchy; on which side of the looking glass will you stand?
The Psytopia trilogy is a light-hearted, leftfield look at the swords n' sorcery genre with a good few cyberpunk twists, set in a world of shifting tectonic plates with their own weather, societies and laws of nature, written in stanzas and soundbites rather than traditional narrative.

'The Compendium' is a collection of eighteen independent short stories which also form a part of a greater whole.
The stories range in length and scope, but generally occupy the sci fi/supernatural... More > camp.
Book One contains Episode One: 'The Assignment', in which a group of university students are sent to examine some ancient Mayan ruins with a moody poltergeist in tow.
To say 'but all is not what it seems' would be far too obvious, but obviously... it isn't.
What is the Compendium anyway, and what is the event each story is counting down to?< Less

Jyishu is a kindly soul, keen to lift his sister out of her... More > depression.
Jhana isn’t so accommodating- a moody goth on the tail end of a heroin addiction.
