After many months of waiting, proof reading and proofing again, editing and last changes in these last few days at the end of July my own debut science fiction novel Orbital Kin has been published by UK publisher Austin Macauley.

Here is the blurb from the book cover-

After an unusual disease breaks out and begins to threaten the country, a group of postgraduate students at a British university focus their research upon it, aiming to find out the cause and the cure.

The experimentations move out to space stations soon enough, in hope of a cure being produced while more mysterious events take place. The two graduate students find success, breakthroughs and the sudden spreading illness takes them in directions they never expected.

Can university graduates Steven and Alan save the country from the spread of the disease?

Only time will tell…

The novel is available in paperback and ebook, from shops such as Waterstones,, and others and the Austin Macauley website.

If you want something different but realistic, modern and exciting in science fiction this might be your kind of story. For fans of authors such as William Gibson, JG Ballard, Alastair Reynolds, Arthur C Clarke. It is in a way dystopian, a thriller, almost some kind of epic space drama and family tale. A future only perhaps years from now, a possible tomorrow, a warning or a future fiction fable.
