Rated 5.00/5 based on 2 reviews
Perhaps the world ended, and we brought it on ourselves. But only Joyce noticed the whimper. And she might just be tits-out crazy.

Intended for adult readers, science fiction / humour novel Automatons is a stripping bare of the ways people stumble blindly down the same old paths, and how we find it so much easier to be humane to our technology rather than each other. More

About BP Gregory

Monsters, machines and roaming cities, insanity, betrayal and lust! Author and avid reader, BP Gregory was always an oddment to justify the most terrible things. With such tales you shouldn’t always feel comfortable or safe.

Coming from a sober, orderly corporate background she has been a student of archaeology and a dilettante of psychology, biological science and prepping culture. However it was her love of writing about people that drew her strongly to science fiction, horror and urban fantasy: all engines for frogmarching hapless characters through extreme situations. A process of painfully peeling back layers to discover what, if anything, lurks within. Do we each treasure some inviolate core of self, kept safe from our actions and choices? Would it matter if nobody saw it?

BP Gregory is the author of three novels including the newly released Something for Everything (second in the Automatons series). A stroll down life’s eerie back alleys with a few collections of short stories, and a horror novelette which is a youthful messy love letter to her home town round out the picture. She lives in Melbourne with her husband where she is currently writing The Town, an Australian horror novel about a mysterious burnt out town that should never have been there.

For sneak peeks at The Town, more stories, reviews and recommendations on some great reads as she ploughs enthusiastically through her to-read list visit

Review by: darbycook on April 29, 2014 :
Amazing, grim, and horrible. I loved it! This author can WRITE!!! Poetic and beautiful. Obviously, the writer has more than a story and takes wonderful, rare pride in its crafting. Quite disturbing.

Review by: MoratGurgeh on Oct. 02, 2013 :
Both starkly beautiful and profoundly disturbing, BP Gregory's Automatons is a novel of a dystopia that's just around the corner and all too plausible. With characters that you can't help but like despite their many flaws, and a very Australian setting and dialogue (coffee ruined a perfectly good keyboard the first time I encountered 'nose-goblins'), I cannot recommend this story highly enough.
