Yes, it’s hard to believe, but two whole years have passed since Darwin’s Soldiers was published and what a different world we live in now with Baby Yoda, face masks and life on Venus.
I have just signed off the typeset manuscript of Survival Machines, so we’ve taken another step forward towards publication. Next step, the cover! Thank you all for being patient - we will get there!
In the meantime, I have been busy writing a short story from the Darwin’s Soldiers timeframe which introduces you to a few peripheral characters who are likely to show up again in Survival Machines. I’m hoping to send it out soon to everyone who has signed up to my e-newsletter: https://mailchi.mp/2002b4e17451/origintrilogymailinglist

If you want a new read, I can highly recommend ‘Runners’ by M.A. Hunt, which has just come out on e-book (paperback to follow soon) for anyone into Urban Fantasy with a twist of horror:
