Sick of fictional mermaid documentaries? Try some dystopian maritime science fiction, instead!


Welcome to the Fleet!

It’s the near future, the rising tides have swallowed much of the world’s coastlines, and the last survivors of a deadly plague are scattered across a new and vastly different ocean. But all is not well in the Reach. The fish are dwindling, the currents are shifting, and secrets long thought lost are rising to the surface.

Fleet is my experiment in semi-serial science fiction self-publishing. Every month I’ll reveal three more chapters in this epic saga, starting today. Check it out in the Amazon Kindle store — Fleet: The Reach.

This is an experiment, so I want to here your thoughts and comments, what you loved, what you hated. Part 1: The Reach is only $0.99 (please note, subsequent parts will be $1.99) and all parts will eventually be compiled into an omnibus edition, with a few extras. Please leave your impressions in the comment field below.

And, of course, if you like it, please take the time to leave a review on Amazon!

    I’d love to read it, but I’ve have to get a kindle first. Any chance at alternate platforms?

      I used a free viewer available for the computer.

    Phillip – you don’t need a kindle – use any PC, or android device, or iOS device, or blackberry, or …you get the idea.

      Phillip, you can upload the ebook to any platform.
