About David Winship

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

He is currently working on a volume of nonsense verse with themes ranging from cosmology and philosophical questions about the nature of the universe... to mince pies and listening for worms.

About the Series: The Voyager Series
The Voyager 1 space probe was launched by NASA on September 5, 1977, to study the outer solar system and, ultimately, interstellar space. It carried a gold-plated audio-visual disc in the event that it might be found by intelligent life-forms from other planetary systems. The disc carried photos of the Earth and its life-forms, spoken greetings from people including the President of the United States, Jimmy Carter, and a medley of sounds from Earth, including whales, a baby crying, waves breaking on a shore and music, including works by Mozart and Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode". It got picked up by two itinerant spacecombers from Morys Minor. The books in this series describe the ensuing story.

Reviews of ANTidote by David Winship

Kylie Fells reviewed on March 4, 2020

Most of this sci-fi maneuvering takes place in the final decade of this century, not so far in the future that I might not still be around as a witness. In between, there's a Formica virus epidemic caused by Nebraska flying ant swarms that blot out the sky and is characterized by involuntary exclamations of Latin words and phrases. (At least it's not coronavirus!) Can't a gurl simply be nozy? Blame the Voyager 1 space probe for that invasion and then, through the narrator's granny, just about everything else that follows in this hoot of two planets.
