Machineries of Mercy

Young adult SF novel, republished by Luna Press, Autumn 2020

Westworld meets Ready Player One in a sleepy English village.

In the idyllic village of Touchstone, the birds are singing and everyone is happy.
But Ethan knows it’s not real.
England may be ruined and plagued with riots, but Touchstone is more dangerous still.

NB The first edition was originally published by ChiZine in Nov 2018, but rights reverted to me following the revelations about ChiZine’s business practices, which have been widely reported elsewhere. Please do not buy any remaining copies of the ChiZine edition of the novel, as royalties will not be paid to me.

Reviews
