I've been writing for many years and only recently started putting my stories out there as e-books. I've got a whole bunch of them; most are short novels, usually around 20,000 words. I tend to write fast and make everything up as I go along, so the stories often change radically from day to day, and sometimes end up far from where I thought they would go. The joy of writing, for me, is in the adventure of improvisation. Most of my books have elements of science fiction, mystery, satire, suspense, supernatural and more, but I just think of them as stories.'Renegade Robot' is my newest story. It's a light-hearted comic take on the myth of the 'Singularity', that event after which "nothing will ever be the same again". In these days of constant, well-funded hysteria, how could we distinguish a real Singularity (if and when it comes) from any other panicky 'headline of the day'? In 'Renegade Robot', our hero is a "robot exterminator", stamping out minor infestations of nuisance rogue robots, who gets caught up in a frantic news cycle.'Unwritten Rules of Impossible Things' is coming up next. It's a story about two boys investigating a giant stuffed moose in a house down the street. What they don't know is that someone - or something - is about to steal their selves for a day.Q: Why did you go indie?Indie e-books on the internet are a dream come true for me. I've never been interested in publishing as a way to make money, but always wanted to share my stories. I've also been inspired by the open-source software movement, and by the talented local musicians in my neighborhood who love to play together and just have a great time. I've always wished that art and culture would be more about sharing and community, and less about grabbing every penny you can find. It's just the way I feel about it.Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?I'm mostly partial to madly inventive innovators, humorists, absurdists and satirists of all ages, including Jorge Luis Borges, Philip K Dick, Flannery O'Connor, Stanislaw Lem, Kurt Vonnegut, Mark Twain, Italo Calvino, Franz Kafka, Julio Cortazar, Roberto Arlt, Clarice Lispector, Luis Bunuel, and Macedonio Fernandez.
Left for dead on the nightmarish surface of the planet, Commander Michael Everhart and his team of Hell Divers barely escape with their lives aboard a new airship called Deliverance. After learning that Xavier “X” Rodriguez may still be alive, they mount a rescue mission for the long-lost hero.
In the skies, the Hive is falling apart, but Captain Jordan is more determined than ever to keep humanity in their outdated lifeboat. He will do whatever it takes to keep the ship in the air—even murder. But when he learns the Hell Divers he exiled have found Deliverance, he changes course for a new mission—find the divers, kill them, and make their new ship his own.
In the third installment of the USA Today bestselling Hell Divers series, Michael and his fellow divers fight across the mutated landscape in search of X. But what they find will change everything.
