Owning the Future

A collection of stories by

I have a varied collection of short stories in my files and, of course, the temptation is there to dump them on Kindle, take the money and run. However, though I think some of them are great, some aren't, and some are profoundly dated. I am aware that there are those out there, who will just buy these without a second thought, so I have to edit, be selective, and I damned well have to show some respect for my readers. Kindle in this respect can be a danger for a known writer, because you can publish any old twaddle and someone will buy it. Time and again, I've had fans, upon hearing that I have this and that unpublished in my files, demanding that I publish it at once because surely they'll love it. No they won't. A reputation like trust: difficult to build and easy to destroy.

I've therefore chosen stories other people have published here and there, and filled in with those I really think someone should have published. Here you'll find some Polity tales, some that could have been set in the Polity (at a stretch) and some from the bleak Owner universe. Enjoy!
