Coming Soon: The Space Pilot Book of the Month Club

I spend my working day illustrating short stories, poetry and drawing comics. I do this because I love telling stories.

The main reason for running this web site is to share that love of stories with others and try to attract readers to the kind of fiction that I particularly enjoy. There's no prize for guessing that the mega-genre science fiction figures large in that.

So, starting in April, I'm launching the Book of the Month here on the Space Pilot website. I'm going to give away a free eBook on the first Monday of the month that you can download, read, share with your friends, anything you like.

All I ask in return is that you come back here and post a comment under that eBook post, telling the rest of us what you thought of the book and maybe engaging with the comments and questions posed by your fellow readers.

It's a free book club and you don't even need to give me your personal data to join it. So it's really free.

As this summer sees the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, I'll feature a number of classic lunar tales, some you'll be familiar with and one, in particular that might surprise you. There will be other firsts and landmark ideas in the mix too. Who wrote the first robot story? Well, you'll get a chance to read that very story, here in the Space Pilot book club.

The success of this project very much depends on all of the visitors here who read the stories taking part and leaving their comments. So help me out and I'll keep it running indefinitely. Let's see if we can create a wee community of science fiction history pundits here at www.spacepilot.scot.
