Sad to report that writer Philip Martin has passed away.

His groundbreaking 1970s TV series Gangsters was a great influence on Kaldor City, hence the "Thanks too... Larson E Whipsnade" credit that appears on all the CD inserts.

Automotive Dreams

 A collection of seven short stories by Fiona Moore, featuring robots, AI and the Internet of Things, is now available on Kindle, with a cover by Andy Lambert. For the price of a coffee you can buy it here:


A prototype self-driving car escapes from a research facility and drives off on its own— a simple programming error, or something far stranger.... 

 A cowboy whose wife, dog, and truck have all left him— and who’s not just going to write a sad song about it.... 

 A hero on a solitary quest through a fantasy world— but with no memory of how they got there or why there are no other people around... 

 Seven cyberpunk mystery stories, including the BSFA-award nominated “Jolene”. Stories of crime, artificial intelligence, and hope for humanity’s future.
