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.

Great bit of fun. Laughed loads. Some good science fictions limericks. A good ting to dip into when you wake up feeling low.

I previously read this after picking it up at Amazon. While there are a couple of cute ones, most of this is bad. In my review at Amazon I said: if I had a "be sure to never buy anything from this author" list I would take the time to add everything he ever wrote to the list. Given that I wanted be sure and mention it here as well, as I almost just got one his other works, just the thought make me shudder.

This is a collection of humorous limericks by U.K. novelist, Peter Salisbury, usually known for his "serious" science fictions novels, like "Passengers to Sentience," and it's upcoming sequel. I read several of these limericks to my two children and they loved every one.

One of my (many) favorites is;

A cute little android called Shelly
Looked marvelously good on the telly
But being a punk
She caused quite a funk
Drinking oil that was terribly smelly.

It is a small book uniquely designed for today's digital eReaders that will have you rereading it again and again. It is also suitable for all ages (IMHO).
