Hello. My name is David Gullen, I make stuff up and I don’t know how to stop.

News

As you can see from the cover, Once Upon a Parsec, the book of alien fairy tales, has a magnificent contributors list. A couple of years ago I pitched this idea to Ian Whates at NewCon Press and it is wonderful to see it released into the wild in its full glory.

Once Upon a Parsec available to order in paperback and Kindle from Amazon, and there is also a limited-edition hardback available from NewCon themselves.

“Seriously, you need this book.” – Mike Carey BAFTA nominated author of The Girl with All the Gifts

A Bonnie and Clyde for the Trump Era…

Josie and Novik embark on the ultimate roadtrip. In a near-future re-sculpted politically and geographically by climate change, they blaze a trail across the shopping malls of America in a printed intelligent car (stolen by accident), with a hundred and ninety million LSD-contaminated dollars in the trunk. Pursued by vengeful drug cartels on one side and the agents of corrupt authority on the other, they set out to bring down the system, buying shoes and cameras to change the world.

Meanwhile, President Guinevere Snarlow determines to make America great again. She embarks on an ambitious but perilous campaign, invading Mexico on a pretext and plotting to assassinate the richest man the world has ever known…

Take from the rich, and shop for the poor.

“One of the most original books I’ve read in many years. It’s mad and bad and you need to read it.”  – Jaine Fenn, author of the Hidden Empire novels.
“A clever, dark and often very funny satire on rapacious capitalism.” – Chris Beckett, author of Dark Eden, winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award

  1. Read your story The Moss Kings in May/June 2019 Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine. I thought it was excellent. My kind of thing. Is this a ‘snapshot’ from a larger work-in-progress? Or maybe the first in a series of short stories? At any rate, I’d be delighted to read more about the characters in The Moss Kings. It’s not easy cutting through the noise, as it were, in terms of the amount of writing ‘out there’ but your voice on the page in F&SF (not that I’m saying its contents was otherwise noise) was striking and resonated. Thanks and well done.

    • Thank you so much! I really appreciate it when people take the time to write, I am much encouraged. You’ll be pleased to know I’m working on a second ‘Moss Kings’ story at the moment, and I’m intrigued by the direction it is taking me. And thank you also for your kind comments on voice, with this story the setting really helped.
      With best wishes, David.

      • That’s good news and thanks for the reply. I hope F&SF magazine buys the new ‘Moss Kings’ story, in which case I imagine I’ll be back here again at some point enthusing about it. All the best.

    • Hello Emad, that is a very interesting article you linked to there. My best wishes to everyone involved in Egyptian SF.
      You are right, I am a big fan of John Brunner, although it has been a while since I read one of his books. For me Shockwave Rider and Stand on Zanzibar are his two great visionary books. How about you?
