More About the Author
'I think it's important to get accuracy and consistency in any fictional setting - whether it's a historical romance or a science fiction adventure set on a distant planet. To me, the background is as essential as the story itself, and I strive to make it as believable as possible.'
Mark lives with his wife in the depths of the Suffolk, England countryside with horses, cats and various other animals. He is currently working on the next novel in the series, which is set between the events of 'Acid Sky' and 'Below Mercury', and is set in space, beyond the orbit of Mars.

A solid and enjoyable book, and I'm looking forward to reading more by this author.
I happened on Below Mercury during a random eBook browse, which typically yields ten-odd sample downloads and four subsequently readable books. I find it's a good sign of an enjoyable read, as in the case of Below Mercury, for fellow tram passengers to wonder at your gleaming eyes and flushed cheeks - perhaps edging away from you across the seat in case excitement's contagious.
In fact, everything that happened during my day became just one more maddening triviality until I could get back to reading. And much like a great amusement park ride, on reaching the end I immediately wanted to circle back and try it all again.
I wish there had been more character development. It would have helped that part of the story...especially when looking at the dynamics between the members of the "commission" on Mercury.
I cannot wait to read more from this writer! I believe he will become one of the stars if he keeps going. Everyone has to start somewhere after all. I was completely surprised at what happened (that doesn't happen often in sci-fi these days). I had a hard time putting the book down and the diagrams/appendix were a nice bonus. Enjoy!
I hope people will give the book a read.
Space travel, greedy mega corporation with evil minions,compassionate hero,and well the robots.
The pacing of the story was just right for my tastes. There was time to fill in good detail yet it moved along nicely with plenty of action. I found myself liking the main character and caring that he succeed with his mission. I generally knew how things would go but there were plenty of bits that kept me in suspense right up to the end. Highly recommended!

This was a marvelous, well researched story with good science and well-developed characters and character interactions. My only objection is that it ended too quickly. Read morePublished 4 days ago by Pam
Overall, the book was just too wordy with mindless "scientific" explanations and a very weak plot. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Sonia Herrington

Lots of action and a ton of detail. Great background info including schematics of equipment and planet topography. A pretty good mystery to keep a reader involved.Published 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
This is a Sci-Fi story that leans toward the Science part, but not to too technical a degree. It represents a best guess as to how things would actually be in a future time. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Capt Bob
