About Peter Salisbury

I am a life-long fan of science fiction, and so when I had an idea for my first story, I wasn't surprised that it was in that genre. The first book took me ten years to complete, but I've got a little quicker since. I am pleased to say that I now have over thirty books published in my name.

What next? So far I haven't run short of ideas for new stories, so there are several projects in various stages of completion, and I hope to be publishing the next story before too long, so please subscribe to my alerts.

My profile picture is a portrait of the author as a young man, painted by my daughter Charlotte Salisbury who has also contributed to several of my book covers.

Professional background
In the 1970s I studied Chemistry at university and then spent over thirty years in classrooms across England teaching almost anything but Chemistry, including Photography, Communications Skills, General Science, Computing, and Information and Communications Technology.

In the 1990s I spent ten years writing abstracts of chemical patents. This was a most exacting process but very rewarding to be reading about the very latest inventions in the field, and the abstracts were distributed world-wide to research scientists by subscription. Articles of mine have been published in magazines and I have written assignments used for assessing Communications Skills for a major international Examination Board.

After retiring early this century I began writing in earnest.

Review by: Adero C E Allison, PHD on May 15, 2012 :
This is a good anthology. Each story held my attention. I am more of a novel person so I frequently wanted more but I never felt that there was something missing as I finished a story.

Review by: Daphne Coleridge on April 16, 2012 :
Five clever and inventive stories which were fun to read. My favourite was “In My Own Hands”, which provides a surprisingly convincing explanation for the pace of development in computer science. The author uses his very fertile imagination and his scientific knowledge to explore some quirky twists to ideas old and new; including man’s first encounter with alien technology and the unexpected potential of a boy's tablet. A quick read, but with enough new ideas in it to keep me thinking.
