About Tom Morris

Started reading SF and Fantasy in the 1950's (yes I am that old), Galaxy and Astounding magazines mainly. Have been a fan ever since. Horror as well - especially Lovecraft and Derleth. All time favourite author is the great Jack Vance, but recently have found Neal Asher - fantastic! I was fascinated by chemistry from an early age and managed a B.Sc and Ph.D.and hence a lomg time interest in alchemy.
Have fooled around with writing short stories for a long time, but couldn't be bothered to submit them. Found Smashwords and decided to take the plunge. It's rewarding to see that people are downloading my stories and adding them to their libraries. Hope that they find them enjoyable.

I use to play GuildWars a lot - hence the picture - that's my character, a necromancer of course!

Review by: James Jenkins on March 03, 2014 :
Nothing new, or spectacular. It is a story that has been done before.

As sci-fi stories go that I've read here on smashwords, this was certainly up there with the best. Very good writing and a great idea to set it around the Hadron Collider.

The other two reviews here state that the ending is a little obvious and I too have to agree. That said this is a minor quibble, and after reading a run of so-and-so fiction on smashwords, it's nice to read something like this that shows very good writing exists for free.

(It does however pain me to have to agree with that GOIT Carter again. This is now the third story in a row that (like Mick Carter) I've given 5 stars to.......DAAAAMMMMNNNN!!!!

So I suppose in hindsight that there is lots of good stuff for free on smashwords.....You've just got to know were to look!

Review by: Michael Carter on Aug. 29, 2013 :
Excellent short-story, told through different forms of media, concerning the experiments of the CERN Giant Hadron Collider in the near future.

The idea is sort-of familiar, reminiscent of golden-age science-fiction, with a splash of [but not the style of] Lovecraft. The idea builds, and throughout the tale, it becomes increasingly inevitable what the ending will be. But the story is written with such gusto and authority and sense-of-reality, that it convinces with its techno-babble, and does its job admirably.

In short, excellent. Loved it.

Review by: Emma Laybourn on April 24, 2012 :
This SF/horror story is written with considerable skill and panache. The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is because the ending was a little too guessable - and too short. I wanted more!
