SCI-FI NOVELS

My writing concentrates on three idioms: novels, short stories and poetry.

With novels, my sci-fi trilogy ‘The Smith Chronicles’ is set in the future (natch), on the distant planet Tapi-36. In Book 1, our heroine, Nikita Smith, commits a murder (accidental?), and ends up on the run chased by TAPCON and its leader, the psychologically challenged David Sempre. Books 2 & 3 deal with her further exploits, but she is never far away from the clutches of her nemesis.

At the heart of all three books is humour. I like to think that the trilogy is an entertaining, funny read; this isn’t your run-of-the-mill serious, space opera sci-fi that only boys will enjoy. It’s got dogs, mutants, disembodied heads, NITs, geeks, Ghandi… what more could you desire in a novel? 😉

Oh, and I use the name ‘John K. Irvine’ for my books so as not to cause confusion with the well-known American author who likes a bit of wrestling…

All three books are available in paperback and Kindle formats at all good retailers. You can buy a copy by clicking on the seller links below each cover OR you can go to the BUY page.

You can also view/read the Prologue and 1st Chapter of each book by clicking on the link below the synopsis.

And I must mention that all the beautiful book cover designs were created by Sam Hayles at http://www.doseprod.com.

The Golden Circuit (Book One – 2013)

1-the-golden-circuit

SYNOPSIS

Way, way out past the Heliopause, Mikita Smith is running for her life. She’s wanted for a crime she had no intention of committing – or at least, that’s what she believes. She needs to find some answers, and fast, while she searches for what matters: her own identity, and the skills that will allow her to control her ‘gift’ – the ability to channel the GOLDEN CIRCUIT. Meanwhile, maniacal TAPCON boss David Sempre is tightening his control on the Michael 6 Quadrant. And with the aid of his father’s disembodied head, an army of killer NITs and the entire TAPCON Task Force, his evil ambitions are nearing their fruition.

Buckle up for an unforgettable journey beyond the Scattered Disc.
