In the spirit of providing additional reading matter for people currently stuck indoors, the collected edition of my Slab City Blues series of sci-fi noir novellas is now on sale at $0.99 for the next seven days.
Alex McLeod paid dearly during the war for independence from Earth. It left the detective disfigured, jaded, and alone. In the aftermath of victory, Alex seethes as criminal factions and cold-blooded killers clash over control of the newly-liberated confederation. In his crusade for justice in the free states, he’s willing to break more than a few rules along the way…
The only home Alex knows is the slums of Slab, an orbiting city teeming with lowlifes, back-stabbers, and gene-spliced monstrosities. From the grimy streets of his city to the lawless Asteroid Belt, Alex goes toe-to-toe with a sharp-clawed vigilante, a mythical serial killer, and a gorgeous vampire with an ominous message. His quest won’t end until his homeland earns the freedom it was promised…
But even Alex may not be able to stop the impending Reckoning and a voyage to the one place he swore he’d never return: Earth…

Also, in light of current events, I’ll be donating the next two months’ proceeds from Slab City Blues and my Raven’s Shadow novellas to the UK homelessness charity Shelter and the foodbank charity The Trussell Trust. Homeless people and those already in difficult financial circumstances will be most likely to suffer throughout the unfolding crisis so if anyone has any money to spare please consider donating to a relevant charity in your area.

And finally, please stay safe and remember: this too shall end.
