Paul Morrison has been a writer for most of his life. “I cannot remember a time when I was not writing, even when I was five or six years old. I grew up on books such as Treasure Island, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and The Time Machine — these and the many other books that I read in my early years fed my imagination, a voracious imagination transporting me to faraway places, other worlds and to other times in both the recent and more distant past...” Many of these worlds and places are visited in the novels and short story collections he has written.
Besides a love for fiction, Paul also reads widely on ancient history and archaeology. “I am particularly interested in Ancient Egypt, mainly Old Kingdom Egypt during the age of the pyramid builders. I was always intrigued as to how the pyramids were built and about the lives of the pharaohs as well as the workers who constructed the pyramids. There were many questions filling my mind, but few if any answers.” This inquiring interest led to the Giza Trilogy books, a monumental work of well-researched fiction set against the backdrop of the three pyramids on the Giza Plateau. Together, with their associated books, The Divine Light (currently being written) and the completed, Eternal Egypt, Supplement to the Giza Trilogy, these books total more than one million words! Other books written cover a wide range of subjects including historical, science fiction, ghost and detective stories as well as many other genres.
Paul currently lives in Hobart, Tasmania with his wife in a house overlooking the Derwent River. “The magnificent views of Hobart and of Mount Wellington inspire me in my writings — but the most important inspiration is my wife, Helena.”

Did not finish the book. Left me disappointed that I even thought I could read it.

Review on the Collected Science Fiction and Stories
Setting Place: Earth, Some corners of parts of the Universe and the Human Mind
Setting Time: Future Mainly
Story Format: Short Stories and Novellas
The book is a trip to the science fiction mystery that haunts the mind and the soul of each sci-fi lover or the imagination of the readers, that like me enjoy the adventure and thrill of a good book but fear the memory of the mysterious alleys and dark rooms. I still chill out thinking of Clocks.
The mixture of sci-fi and ghost scenarios disarms the mind and challenges the imagination to open the Cardboard box or the Glossy White Door (a mix of the two genres). Whether through The Broken Window, dealing with Stolen Identity or simply crossing a Street in Brooklyn the feeling is that it is impossible to foresee the end of each suspenseful story. There is no way to imagine a Christmas On Mars without the thrill in the air or the complexities you imagine in such a world. After a meeting with the Zoo Keeper or the Vampire of the Palais Theatre you will certainly think twice before touching the Door Knocker. It is difficult to pinpoint which is the best or choose the next emotional adventure in this collection. I can, however, foresee a great time if like me you choose the pages of this intriguing set of stories to enjoy in the dark hours of the night!
