It was twenty-five years ago today

Okay, maybe not the classic line from Sergeant Pepper’s but that’ll get the song in your head!

Chapter One of The Penguin Killer opens twenty-five years ago – on Tuesday 25th July 1995. It’s strange to think how much has happened in the swift quarter of a century since then and how good the music of that era still sounds!

I’ve been immersing myself in the Britpop sound whilst writing the sequel and loving it. Each chapter’s title of the series is a tune from that era which you can listen to on the Spotify playlist:

I’m also writing new material from The Origin Trilogy universe and hope to have some Darwin’s Soldiers-era short stories ready to mail out soon. If you want to join the list, just add your email address here:

While we wait for the Survival Machines cover to be designed, why not head to the 90’s for nostalgic page-turning whodunnit?
