Science Fiction and Fantasy


I have been writing 'stories' from a very young age. Some years ago
I completed a number of science-fiction and fantasy novels, two or three of which were
declared to be of 'publishable quality' by people who know about such things
to whom they were shown - but none of them succeeded in finding
a publisher. However, although I am not a natural for the short-story
length, three of my infrequent shorter pieces have been published.

Plus, some links of possible interest.
