These short stories serve as tasters if you will of my novels to come. It is my sincerest hope to convert them all and in so doing transport my readers into a different world every time Watch out for your favourite... it might be next.
I have only recently discovered my ability of storytelling but have grown to enjoy it immensely. It started as a “pass time hobby” and has gradually escalated to a serious passion. It consumes all my free time and I find it satisfying and invigorating every time I get submerged in my imagination and come out with a new story on the other side. After six years I finally published my first book , this being my second, and felt such immense joy and pride that I could not help but continue on my crusade to enter this very daunting market and successfully get my name known. I hope my readers find as much pleasure in reading my stories as I had in writing them.
Adrian Tchaikovksy's critically acclaimed, stand-alone novel Children of Time, is the epic story of humanity's battle for survival on a terraformed planet.
Who will inherit this new Earth?
The last remnants of the human race left a dying Earth, desperate to find a new home among the stars. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they discover the greatest treasure of the past age - a world terraformed and prepared for human life.
But all is not right in this new Eden. In the long years since the planet was abandoned, the work of its architects has borne disastrous fruit. The planet is not waiting for them, pristine and unoccupied. New masters have turned it from a refuge into mankind's worst nightmare.
Now two civilizations are on a collision course, both testing the boundaries of what they will do to survive. As the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, who are the true heirs of this new Earth?
