COMING NEXT:- EARTH PRIME
A collection of stories set in the Portal Future after the Earth Girl trilogy.
Earth Prime was planned to be a collection of scenes and stories set after Earth Flight, told from the viewpoints of various characters in the Earth Girl trilogy and revealing a few things that Jarra didn’t know.
As always, I hugely underestimated the number and length of the stories. Rather than throw stories away, and leave out some favourite characters, I’ve decided this will have to be split into two collections. This will also give me the chance to include three Portal Future stories that have only appeared on my website and one that appeared in an anthology with stories by other authors.
Earth Prime should hopefully be published in ebook in August of this year, estimated length 460 pages. It will focus on Jarra, Fian, and the other archaeologists during the period after the events of the Earth Girl trilogy, and before they head to excavate the alien ruins on Fortuna.
The second collection will be published in the first half of 2021 and will focus on scenes and stories from the Military and Jarra’s family.
Earth Prime will contain the following stories set after the Earth Girl trilogy:-
Jarra – The End, and the New Beginning – originally published as a first draft 19 part serial story on my website.
Fian – I’ll Be Right Here Waiting – Novelette
Dalmora – Twenty Seconds in Ark – Short story
Lecturer Playdon – Full Circle – Novelette
Krath – Raw Material -Short story
Amalie – Balance of Power – Novelette
Jerez – The Real Jerez Rivera – Novelette
I’m also taking my chance to include a story set a year earlier and featuring many of the same characters.
Lecturer Playdon – Year End 2788

A huge apology for paperback readers that Earth Prime won’t appear in paperback until early 2021.
When I publish an ebook, the paperback usually follows about two months later. In the current world situation, I can publish ebooks relatively normally, and my existing paperbacks seem to be available to buy with longer than usual delivery times, but publishing new paperbacks is a problem. Some steps in my usual paperback process are likely to take much longer than normal, while others may not be possible at all.
My deepest apologies that I’m therefore reluctantly delaying publishing the paperback of Earth Prime until early 2021 when I hope everything will be back to normal.
