Kindle

Right, that was quick. The Parasite, one of the first 'books' I published - it is in fact a 40,000 word novella - is now available on Amazon Kindle. I've worked through it, but not a huge amount since I didn't want to change it into something that had ceased to be that original The Parasite. That, I can tell you, was a temptation difficult to resist. I also haven't got a cover picture or ISBN number up. If I'd used the original cover picture then I would have had to bugger about with copyright issues and I didn't get an ISBN because I don't yet know whether it would be worth the money (10 ISBNs for a £100 I'm told)

I hope you all enjoy it.

Re: Kindle

Here's the blurb for it:

After mining complex ices deep in the Solar System, Jack Smith is concerned about his profit margin, but is it him who doesnít want to face quarantine or something squirming inside him? The Cryon Corporation Director, Geoffry Haven, is also concerned about the bottom line and might consider Jack an expense he can no longer afford, though perhaps suitable for a starring role in a snuff movie. Meanwhile, the human and unhuman agents of World Health must investigate. Perhaps itís time to deploy vat-grown killers and an anti-photon weapon, because the parasite is coming to Earth, and itís hungry.

The Parasite was first published by Tanjen Ltd as an illustrated novella back in 1996. Tanjen closed down a number of years later and since then the novella has been difficult if not impossible to obtain. There are copies out there, but checking recently I havenít seen one for below $50.00, which is a hell of a lot for something only 130 pages long and perhaps only for completists. Iíve edited it again, thought I havenít been too heavy-handed since I didnít want to deliver something that had completely ceased to be the original. This is my first attempt at self-publishing through Amazon Kindle. I hope you all enjoy it!

Re: Kindle

I shall have to go have a look at that Neal, though I've still got quite a few of your Polity books to read.

Re: Kindle

Please do. But be aware that it is only a 40,000 word novella. Second book I ever published.

Re: Kindle

I got my new Kindle for my birthday, hope all your books make it to the Kindle Store because our bookshops are so expensive and they do not always have a large variety.

Re: Kindle

I really liked Gridlinked and from the very positive reviews here and your talent I am sure it will be a good one.

Re: Kindle

You will enjoy Gridlinked, you can download a sample of the Prador Moon to your kindle to see if it's in English at least, maybe they misspelt the title. Give it a go let me know.
