Kethani (2008)

I'm not much of a SF reader. I've always maintained I didn't do SF, until I started reading my husband's Kris Longknife books and loved them. Since then I've been trying to expand my reading and try more SF. After reading Mark's reviews of Eric Brown's books over at Walker of Worlds, I really wan...

Guardians of the Phoenix

Guardians of the Phoenix by Eric Brown

Starship Spring

I looked after Ella while Hannah was at work in Mackinley, and when Ella was at school I read or took long walks around the bay. In the evenings we had a meal on the verandah, and when Ella went to bed, Hannah and I chatted about her work—she was investigating a rare bank robbery that had occurre...

Starship Spring by Eric Brown

Starship Coda

We kept a low profile in the aftermath—the last thing we wanted was for our quiet way of life to be interrupted by sensation-seeking tourists and scabrous media-hounds—but perhaps inevitably word leaked out that my friends and I had played a part in the opening of the giant pit on the site of the...

The Serene Invasion

The softscreen brochure remained on the kitchen table, waiting to be either considered or discarded along with all the other detritus of family life: notices of local events, bills, flyers from Hannah’s school... Sally went back to the surgery the day after seeing Kath, and Geoff worked in his st...

The Serene Invasion by Eric Brown


There is something instinctive about returning, a base desire of the heart, even though the head knows better. Never go back, but I was returning: I was driven by necessity. I was going back to Paradise after a year spent in Hell.I arrived in Bangkok on a direct flight from London. I left the cap...

Ghostwriting by Eric Brown


Mirren was too drunk to pilot his flier; it would have detected the alcohol in his system and shut itself down. Otherwise, buoyed up as he was, he might have taken the risk. He considered the irony of dying in a flier accident mere days before he was due to flux again. They passed through the arc...

Engineman by Eric Brown

The Death of Cassandra Quebec

I had made my home on Nova Francais for almost two decades, the last few years a repetition of cafe-life, parties and second-rate exhibitions where even my best crystals failed to sell. I was getting old and lonely and my work was suffering, and some vague desperation drove me to Earth to experie...

Penumbra by Eric Brown

Meridian Days

I shunned the vid-screen, even the entertainment channels; I wanted to be alone with my thoughts.

Weird Space 2: Satan's Reach

He sat up – or rather tried to. He was strapped into a couch on the flight-deck of an unfamiliar ship. The bounty hunters’ ship, of course.

The Fall of Tartarus

To work, to create something solid which before had not existed, was a far preferable option than to submit to the nightmares which had haunted his nights of late.

The Fall of Tartarus by Eric Brown

Starship Summer

I had my worst nightmare to date, and I saw something aboard the ship. I’d spent the day decorating the lounge, what in earlier times had been the ship’s control room. I’d installed a couple of sofas and chairs, a locally woven rug and a few wall hangings and pot plants—native things that intrigu...

He considered the fact of the city beyond, the teeming millions packed into so little space.
