The Corpus Officialis Tower is not as it seems. For a start it's no more than twenty feet high but sprawls across several hundred square kilometres of southeast England. Nobody can quite remember who built it or why, but it certainly does something. Of course, after the computer-induced apocalypse The Administrator has ensured there isn't a microchip in sight...

3 + 3 is an edgy tale of chance based around Theo, who we find with a gun to his head and a finger on the trigger.

    I always wondered what the backward "P" button on word did. Now I know. This style guide is essential for anyone wishing to use the exciting medium of Smashwords to publish their work, and it is written with clarity and pragmatism.

    Warwick packs a lot into these two stories, from a space navy's press gang to a all-too-tempting bevy of alien princesses. The stories have humour and style; they kept the right pace and made me want to turn the page. If you like Douglas Adams and Grant Naylor you'll like these shorts. I look forward to reading the author's other works.
