My new novella, Presence, is now live on the Amazon book store

The lovely cover art above was illustrated by Marek Barej, widely known for his awesome promo-art work on Locomalito’s games

Here’s the blurb:

Jobe has been obsessed with virtual reality ever since the terrible accident that left him crippled and his girlfriend dead. VR, he believes, is the key to escaping all his troubles in the real world, particularly the ongoing nightmares that force him to constantly relive the trauma of the accident.

Polybius, a cloak-and-dagger figure Jobe has recently acquainted online, has offered him the opportunity to try out a new top secret virtual reality device called Presence: A unique VR experience so immersive and convincing it’s been said to drive people insane, leaving most who have tried it unable to differentiate between reality and fantasy after they exit the simulation. For many users the end result is having their mind forever trapped inside a realm of fear, amnesia, paranoia, and night terrors—and Jobe wants to try it.

Whatever the risks, Jobe needs to know what it’s like to experience true presence—the Holy Grail of virtual reality.

You can view/purchase the book here (Kindle version only for now).

My short story, Outside, is also on there too for those people who haven’t checked that out yet. And you can even read it for free in .pdf format, because I’m nice like that. 🙂

Marek Barej’s Facebook page can be found here in case you’re interested in finding out more about him and his work (the guy who did the cover art above).
