FREE NEW RELEASE #scifi book – Running – Alien in the Mirror on Smashwords: http://bit.ly/runningsw

I am only about a month away from releasing Volume 3 of the Iron Series, Worlds Like Dust, and I am sure you weren’t expecting this but I managed to slip in another book; a prequel to the Iron Series. The idea for this book had been germinating in my mind for some time but I knew it wouldn’t be a full-length novel. In fact, Running – The Alien in the Mirror is only 32,000 words – a novella – but I hope you will like it. I think it’s a very good story and a fast read, in both senses of the word!

It is on Amazon for 99 cents here: http://bit.ly/runningam

It will be free on Smashwords for the next 4 weeks so grab a copy now! http://bit.ly/runningsw

Ishmael Bodd is a normal Citizen of Supercity in the far future. But he suddenly feels compelled to commit a minor crime and goes on the run. He can never stop running until he has escaped his culture and found the reason why everything suddenly feels so ‘strange’ to him in this science fiction thriller.

Here is the full blurb:

Running – The Alien in the Mirror can be considered the cyberpunk prequel to the military scifi Iron Series but might also be the prequel to other science fiction thriller series.

Ishmael Bodd ‘wakes up’ for the first time, a billion years in the future. He is a Citizen of Supercity, on Marstoo, far away from old Earth in the Universe. In his world, crime doesn’t exist and Citizens only need electricity to live, whereas clones, who eat food and drink liquids, are banished to Clonecity.

But he suddenly feels compelled to commit a minor crime and goes on the run. He can never stop running until he has escaped his culture and found the reason why everything suddenly feels so ‘strange’ to him in this science fiction thriller.

If you like Rendezvous with Rama, the Running , you will love Running – The Alien in the Mirror.

And in case you are wondering – last week’s blog post was a joke. No electric car has been found in a pyramid yet, but who knows?

Electric car found in pyramid!

Do you remember reading those wonderful books in the 70s by authors like Erich von Daniken and the like, all about aliens visiting Earth milienia ago? How I miss the simple optimism of those books. But now, somebody has actually discovered something strange in the great pyramid:

Remember a few years ago, scientists and engineers managed to get a small wheeled-vehicle up one of those two narrow shafts that lead from the King’s Chamber (tomb) to the exterior of the pyramid in the direction of certain stars? They came up against a tiny wall and although the little robotic vehicle could peer over it, nothing could be seen in the small chamber opposite. They ran out of funding.

Well, they have funding again and last month managed to break through the wall. They found what looks like a robotic vehicle from ancient Egypt! Imagine that! It is battery powered.

You can find out more about ancient pyramids and how they might have originate in my book Unknown Place, Unknown Universe. BOOK 3 in the series, Worlds Like Dust, will be published some time in the next two months. Watch the trailer for Unknown Place, Unknown Universe below. I hope you like it, and if you do, or have anything else to say about this post, please leave a comment.
