Nothing But the Truth

My first Science Fiction novel, Inside Out, follows seven travellers on their way to Triton, and mention is made of a broadcasting station, OCN (Outer Circles News), which might be highly informative, but it has little appeal to residents of the Inner Circles of the Solar System (Jupiter inwards), because they don’t necessarily want toContinue reading “Nothing But the Truth”

War, Law and Survival

My latest Science Fiction book, Making Waves (sequel to Inside Out), came out last months and, like Inside Out, it’s an adventure story, focussed on a handful of characters, with a bit of humour and some hopefully thrilling action. But underneath all that, it’s a story of claims to territory by a superpower armed withContinue reading “War, Law and Survival”

My Review of Making Waves, the sequel to Inside Out by Thorne Moore

New Book: Making Waves

Welcome to Triton, the largest moon of Neptune. Or, welcome to Triton again, if you have already read INSIDE OUT. It’s a little bit chilly, and it’s a little bit distant (only about 4.5 billion kilometres away, give or take). But it’s a freedom-loving place, especially if you’re a corporation keen to maximise your profitsContinue reading “New Book: Making Waves”

Waves Approaching

I published my first science fiction novel, Inside Out, last year and I am now about to publish its sequel, Making Waves, following the fates of the idiots who travelled to Triton in the first book. As before, it is primarily a book about characters and how they respond to events, but naturally it isContinue reading “Waves Approaching”

Last week I got together with a few other writing friends just before my birthday. Over too much cake, just enough wine, and a lot of laughter, we exchanged writing tips and suggestions. Possibly because I did too much of the former cake-eating, I didn’t get to my part of…

One Giant Leap in Profits: Space and the Corporations

In 1957, a 2’ wide aluminium globe made it into orbit around Earth. It was called Sputnik and I remember it well, not because I was interested in Space as a toddler, but because my brother called his guinea-pig Sputnik. Sputnik was launched by the Soviet Union. Four years later, Yuri Gagarin became the firstContinue reading “One Giant Leap in Profits: Space and the Corporations”
