Marshall Buckley lives near London, UK and in Newfoundland, Canada. At the same time. He has a total of five children, three dogs, five cats and some small fish. These numbers change regularly. He is not as tired as you might imagine because he achieves all this by being two people.
In March 2009 an innocent-looking Facebook post stated "I've an idea for a book, who wants to help me write it?" and, after a flurry of posts and emails, Marshall Buckley was born; very soon after, the result (which bears only a passing resemblance to that original idea) was The Long Second.
The sequel, Broken, followed a few months later. The final part of the trilogy - Chronostasis - was published in March 2013.
Playing Adam's Game is not part of the trilogy. Only Douglas Adams is allowed a trilogy of more than three parts.
Work on the next book is well underway, though it has no definitive schedule. Its current title (which may change) is "The Dreams In Which I'm Dying".

Chronostasis (The Cole Trilogy, Part 3)
Tony Cole is dead. And he's not very happy about it.
But just because he's dead, doesn't mean his life is over. Or does it?
The final part of the Cole Trilogy (The Long Second, Broken) takes a different view of life-after-death and the effects on those left behind.
Playing Adam's Game
I recommend you read The Long Second and Broken first.
Adam isn't Green. It's not that he doesn't believe in Climate Change, he just doesn't think it should apply to him.
If he can afford to run an expensive, gas-guzzling car, why shouldn't he? If he wants the heating on high so that he wakes up to a warm house every morning, that's his right. Or so he believes..
Broken (The Cole Trilogy, Part 2)
You can't expect to mess around with time without consequences.
Tony Cole thought he was doing the right thing, thought he understood the rules, but he made one small mistake and now he's paying for it. Trapped in an unresponsive body, he can see, hear and feel but he can't communicate. His mind is active, his body isn't.
Meanwhile, there are other victims of Tony's time-travelling...
The Long Second (The Cole Trilogy, Part 1)
"Possibly the best ending to a book I have ever read" Our Book Reviews Online
Fraud, betrayal, drugs, love. Time-travel.
That's a lot for Tony Cole to deal with.
If you could travel back in time, you'd win the lottery, right? If only it were that easy. Even time-travel has to obey some rules, but as nobody seems to have written them down, Tony is going to have to work them out for himself.
