Editorial Reviews


"His use of tiny scenes to interleave longer ones to underline the differences in the perception of time passing is bordering genius. I'll definitely recommend this short book to anyone who enjoys reading literary craftsmanship independent of genre." - Reb Meijer
"Independence is an interesting, well-written short story. Great start, straight into the action. The two viewpoints work really well to build suspense and there's just enough 'science' to make it believable without overloading the reader with excessive info dumping." - Thomas Fay
"Shaw's world is engaging and clearly has depth, even from this brief encounter." - David Rose
"An interesting aspect of this story is that it alternates between two points of view. The stories of each character do not connect until the very end of the book. This builds up a lot of suspense, as the reader tries to determine the connection between the two." -

From the Author

This is the first story I wrote in what became the Two Democracies universe. It was originally written for submission to the James White Award.
Until I wrote Independence, I hadn't done any fiction since being at school. I love reading science fiction, so that seemed the sensible place to start. I was amazed how quickly the ideas flowed and how the characters came to life. I knew Indie was male right from the start. Johnson ended up being female purely so I could use he and she to distinguish them, but almost immediately I couldn't imagine her being anything but.
The acclaim for Independence genuinely surprised me. As the positive reviews flowed in, I got to thinking about turning it into a series. Two Democracies: Revolution was born. Continuing the independence theme, I quickly settled on three novels: Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. The option of a fourth, Unity, remains open.
