To purchase trade paperback editions of my books go either to or to my print publisher, Wildside Press at:

I used to write under the name "David Alexander" but there were several other writers using that name and publishers and agents confused me with them, so I now use the pen name, "David Grace." My first published novel was "The Chocolate Spy" followed by "Fane" then "My Real Name Is Lisa" then "The Eyes Of The Blind.

I have re-titled Fane as "The Accidental Magician"; re-titled "My Real Name Is Lisa" as "Stolen Angel" and re-titled "The Eyes Of The Blind" as "True Faith." All available at Smashwords, Amazon, and other ebook sellers.

All of my novels except "Daniel" are available in $7.99 or $8.99 trade paperback editions at from publisher, Wildside Press.

My favorite books that I wrote are "The Concrete Kiss", "Shooting Crows At Dawn", "A Death In Beverly Hills", "True Faith", "Easy Target", and "Doll's Eyes" more or less in that order but the order changes from day to day. I think the best SF stories that I have written are the Tramp stories contained in SF Stories Volume 1.

I have had several Sci Fi stories published in Analog Magazine and two crime stores published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. I am a long-time member of the Science Fiction Writers of America.

The legendary SF author (and friend) Jack Vance named a planet after me in "The Face" and named a lawgiver after me in "Night Lamp."

I shared a story credit (with two others) for the Outer Limits episode "Joy Ride" which starred Cliff Robertson.

My last novel was "The Concrete Kiss."

I often write screenplays based on my books as well as stand-alone screenplays. I have written screenplays for: "The Concrete Kiss"; "True Faith"; "Stolen Angel"; "A Death In Beverly Hills", "Doll's Eyes","The Traitor's Mistress", "Daniel" and "Etched In Bone."

I have also written the non-novel related screenplays: "Dreamboat" romantic comedy; "Champion's Season" (comedy); "First Starship" (G-rated adventure).

Review by: Doug Pardee on Oct. 02, 2010 : star star star star
Solid space-opera stories with a Humphrey Bogart-ish main character. The first and last stories have interesting sci-fi premises; the second is basically a noir where the sci-fi setting adds color.

I gave this collection four stars instead of five out of sheer pickiness. The writing wasn't quite as "tight and clean" as it could've been; it's more YA (young adult) style writing. Which might not be fair for me to grumble about, because these stories are certainly suitable for the YA and mature MG (middle grade) audiences. There also were a very few minor editing glitches and misspellings.
