The gods don’t exist but who’s going to tell them?
Something is rotten in the heart of Alexandria and Julius Strathclyde is in trouble. He appears to have summoned the gods, which is driving his partner, Neith Salah, insane. Not to mention all the other ultra-rational citizens of Alpha earth.
It gets worse.
The gods set a challenge that can’t be refused. The race is on to find the lost blueprints for the Quantum Stepper. Whoever possesses them will be able to unlock the stepper’s true potential.
The game is afoot and the outcome is terrifying. All of time and space will be under the control of the victors; to protect, or to plunder. Can Julius and Neith get to the plans before their rivals?
If they lose, Julius’ earth is doomed, but if they win, Neith’s earth will continue to disintegrate.
Can they find a third way? Or will the gods win out?
For lovers of fast-paced, witty novels. The Quantum Curators go from strength to strength.
Praise for the The Quantum Curator Series
‘A protagonist who complains about British weather is one thing, but one who feels the Thames would be much improved by a few crocodiles is something else!’
‘Some genuinely laugh out loud moments plus a really engaging cast of characters, and a meta plot that has me hooked! Cannot wait for the next one!’
‘…a fun take, with engaging characters and good writing.’
‘… funny, bloody hilarious in places. Its characters are well written. I think, if the next one is as good, it will be the start of a bloody good series of books.’
‘A very entertaining, action-packed read with excellent characters and several good jokes – and no doubt some more I missed 🙂 Reminiscent of Ash by Mary Gentle and the Rivers of London series.’

‘Enjoyable and quirky.’
Cover Design. Of course you shouldn’t judge, but there we are. For years I didn’t read The Colour of Magic because I didn’t like the Josh Kirby covers. I’d glanced at them and thought they were more in the vein of the Conan books. Yes, I know! Anyway, I finally picked one up after being […]
It doesn’t matter if you’ve written the best book in the world if no one knows about it. Well sure, congrats, you’ve written the best book in the world but if you are hoping to make any money off it (tawdry I know), you’re going to have to start marketing it. Social Media At the […]
Ah, the joys of formatting. The last few days have been a bit of a slog. I have been shaping my finished edited manuscript into something that can actually be bought. You can read about it here. This is the moment when a traditionally published author gets to relax. Their publisher takes the manuscript away […]
I had the pleasure of being involved in a new “tiny” podcast. Sage Gordon-Davis runs the podcast “Ink and Sage”, a podcast looking at opening paragraphs and giving a quick evaluation. I thought it sounded like fun so sent in my pre-edited opening paragraph. I think it bore up under the scrutiny and I amended […]
The Quantum Curators and the Faberge Egg Eva St. John #1 Neith – Beta Earth ‘Has she chucked the bloody thing in the lake yet?’ My earpiece hissed. ‘No, hang on. Oh, you are not going to like this.’ Clio started sniggering. ‘Some of our intel may be wrong.’ I didn’t need to be […]
It takes a village to raise a child and the same can be fairly applied to getting a book published. As I head toward the launch of my new series, The Quantum Curators, I thought I would walk you through the route I have taken to publish the first book in the series, The Quantum […]
