Nathan @ Thames-Con 2019

More upcoming convention fun. The next chance to catch me for book signing and sci-fi chat will be at the excellent Thames-Con 2019. A great early summer day out. If you're in the Oxford area on the 28th April, pop in and say 'Hi', it will be great to see you.

It was a wonderful surprise and honour to be nominated for the Book Viral 2018 Millennium Book Award this year, alongside some very exciting competition. The winner will be announced on 14th December 2018. I have a few new titles to add to my reading list.

"An intriguing science-fiction read with plenty of action, suspense, and assumptions that get turned on their heads. Run, don't walk, to add this one to your TBR list."

Nathan @ NOR-CON

More upcoming convention fun. The next chance to catch me for book signing and sci-fi chat will be at the excellent Nor-Con 8. Very excited to be attending for both days of the weekend 29th-30th September.

Come and join me. It will be great to see you.

A New Man at the Bureau

Very excited to announce a cool collaboration between myself and Stephen Sampson. I've been rolling this idea around for a while and finally decided to create a short story as a concept piece, Stephen provided the brilliant character cover art. The Green Vale Affair is espionage in the darkness of space, behind the closed doors of power and corruption. As a mounting threat looms from the deepest reaches of the void, humanity needs to react.

If you like your spies and you like your space, I hope you enjoy The Green Vale Affair.

Clarion has Landed!

First contact was never meant to be like this.

Clarion is now here. Book two of the Sol Protocol is now available in e-book and paperback formats.

Clarion: Prologue

He remembered his name; Travis. Memories of his capture and interrogation were fresh in his mind. He awoke, restrained and unable to move. The world was a washed out lifeless white, the heat of his surroundings unbearable. The old generations believed in heaven and hell. Wasn’t this meant to be heaven? He was confused, if this was heaven, what would hell be like? He had a feeling of foreboding, he was about to find out.

Adventures across the worlds of the Anomaly are beginning. The investigative reporter, Jegan Robertsson, is completing his research on the phenomenon of geoshock, when his life is redirected by startling events.

The Anomaly project: a collaboration between Nathan M Hurst, Amir Zand and Lucas Thorn. Stories exploring the futures of humanity as empires rise and fall across the epochs of time.

Star Wars Pick-n-Mix

I read an article in the Culture section of the BBC website recently by Nicholas Barber, which I found myself agreeing to in the most part. I was directed there by a Tweet, but however much I find Twitter a great media tool, the 140 characters simply wasn’t enough space to reply. I found that when asked if Star Wars should have stopped at just one film, I had a few more characters to add.
