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

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?
