 Kojiro vs. The Vampire People

(A Future of London Novella)

Christmas Eve, 2020

A lone swordsman is transporting a precious cargo through the urban wasteland of London – a city that’s been cut off from civilisation for the past nine years.

Zander Kojiro is taking this cargo back to his childhood home, all the while doing his best to keep it hidden from the hungry eyes of the city.

But when he arrives in his old neighbourhood, Kojiro discovers that the territory has been taken over by the Vampire People, a ghoulish, ambitious street gang with a fetish for blood, destruction and loud music.

The Vampire People don’t take kindly to strangers. Even worse, they know what Kojiro’s secret cargo is.

And they’ll stop at nothing to get it.

Kojiro vs. The Vampire People is a John Carpenter-inspired dystopian/action-adventure/horror novella. It can be read either as a stand-alone story or as book 4.5 in The Future of London Series.

Sleeping Giants

(Future of London Series #4)

“Life being what it is, one dreams of revenge.” – Paul Gauguin

It’s a search that leads Walker to ‘The Sleeping Giants’, a low-ranking street gang based in the Hole, formerly South London. The Sleeping Giants know where Hatchet is, but they’re only willing to tell Walker on one condition – he must prove his worth to them and join their ranks.

It all starts with a shocking ‘initiation task’.

But how far is Walker willing to go in his quest for revenge? And can the lone wolf, cast adrift for so long, ever rejoin the pack?

Sleeping Giants is the fourth book in The Future of London series – the perfect binge-reading experience for fans of dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction.

The Complete FAB Trilogy

What If John Lennon Had Lived?

The Complete FAB Trilogy is an outrageous series of alternate history novels that imagine a world in which ex-Beatle John Lennon did not die in 1980.

These books feature a lively and unique blend of action, adventure, comedy, sci-fi, pop culture references, time travel, political satire, revenge – and just a little bit of Beatles.

Now for the first time, get all three FAB books rolled into one.

FAB (FAB Trilogy #3)

Revolver


The year is 2146

Time travel is possible. Artificial intelligence has all but replaced the human workforce and even immortality might be just around the corner.

This is the future that John Lennon has woken up to.

The former Beatle – having undergone experimental cryosleep in the late twentieth century – is now cast adrift in twenty-second century New York.

But not for long.

A killer has been sent back to the 1960s. Its mission? To kill the young Lennon, wipe The Beatles off the cultural map, and ensure a dark future awaits for all mankind.

To stop this happening, Lennon must travel back to the 1960s and revisit his fab past. But that’s only the beginning of his journey through time. An even bigger task awaits – if he can survive.

FAB: Revolver is part alternate history, part sci-fi, part Beatle fanfiction, part comedy. It is the third and final book in the FAB Trilogy.

Mr Apocalypse

(Future of London Series #2)

The Apocalypse Book

 

The year is 2020. London has been cut off from the rest of civilisation.

The people there abide by no rules. There is no police presence. No laws or consequences. There is only the ravaged city, hidden behind two superwalls since 2011.

And yet they are not alone.

Now one of the survivors is close to discovering the truth about his life in this nightmarish version of London. And why no one is in a hurry to let the Londoners back out.

Mr Apocalypse is a dark and gritty dystopian novel. It is the second book in the Future of London series.

FAB (FAB Trilogy #2)

The Fifth Angel

 

FAB The Fifth Angel

1995.

John Lennon. Whereabouts unknown.

The former Beatle and US Presidential candidate – who took the world to the brink of nuclear war in 1988 – has disappeared, seemingly off the face of the earth.

Frank Vogel is the FBI agent who let Lennon slip through his fingers back in ‘88. Now working as a small-time bounty hunter, Vogel has spent the last seven years following up countless Lennon sightings all over the world, but with little success.

One day, Vogel receives a tip from across the Atlantic. There’s a rumour going around that John Lennon – the world’s most wanted man – is writing songs again.

Vogel travels to the UK where he encounters The Angelicas. Known to their fans as ‘the Angels’ – the band’s meteoric rise to stardom is largely credited to an anonymous songwriting collaborator, known only as the ‘Fifth Angel’.

But who is the ‘Fifth Angel’? Can it really be John Lennon? And if Vogel manages to track the ex-Beatle down, will revenge lead to redemption?

FAB (FAB Trilogy #1)

'Fab' - December 8th 2015
December 8th 1980.

Murphy ‘Jagger’ Salmon – ageing hippy, part-time drunk and Rolling Stones fan, is on his way home from the pub when he accidentally saves John Lennon from the assassin’s bullet.

By way of thanks, Jagger is offered a job working for the former Beatle and the two men quickly become friends.

But as the 1980s move forward, things quickly get out of control. When Lennon suffers a couple of career setbacks, he tries to win back the adulation of his fans by moving into politics. But the 1980s version of John Lennon is a far cry from the radical left-winger of old. And much to Jagger’s horror, when Lennon quickly becomes an unstoppable force in American politics, the working-class hero is transformed into a right-wing poster boy.

There’s even talk of a Beatle in the White House.

‘FAB’ is a fast-paced, rip-roaring ride through the 1980s – a decade in which greed was good and shoulder pads made sense. It was an era of uncertainty – of Cold War and nuclear weapons. ‘FAB’ also pokes fun at our obsession with celebrity, whilst fondly recalling some of the unique fashions and pop culture moments that made the 1980s so unforgettable.

L-2011

(Future of London Series #1)

The Revolution will be Televised, Retweeted and Liked.

August 2011.

The London riots – coordinated by technology and social media – have brought the city to its knees.

Historic buildings have been burned to the ground.  Shops are looted, businesses and homes destroyed at random.

The politicians try to resolve the crisis, but the Houses of Parliament are no longer a match for the influence of the Internet, where two alternative leaders have emerged in an online battle for the future soul of London.

Chester George – a masked man whose real identity is unknown, uses YouTube, punk rock and fierce intellect to spread the anarchy.

Sadie Hobbs – reality TV star and blogger.  Loathed and controversial, she urges ‘normal’ society to fight back against Chester George and the ‘feral rats’ destroying the city.

The fate of London hangs in the balance.  And when the day of reckoning comes, hundreds of thousands of people – including sixteen-year-old Mack Walker – will descend upon the city for the final showdown – and a day that London will never forget.
