S.B. Divya’s RUNTIME is a superb old-school cyberpunk novella with a vital and youthful energy about it. Following the story of Marmeg, a young runner entered into the Minerva Sierra Challenge, a teched-up mud run of sorts, it’s a fresh take on a suddenly booming sub-genre that tips its hat to classics such as BLADE RUNNER, ROLLERBALL, THE RUNNING MAN and just about every must-see anime out there.
Notice anything different around here?
Like a brand new website logo?
That’ll be thanks to my pal Sion Smith who’s not only a damn fine writer, but a dab hand at the ol’ DTP to boot.
So to celebrate a reboot of sorts, let’s have some cyberpunk: KITTY WANTS A HITTY is the almost-new prequel to my sci-fi thriller PLASTIC JESUS (published by Salt) and I’ve parked that bad girl right here in this thread.
PLASTIC JESUS is basically my love letter to Ridley Scott (for Blade Runner) and the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic, 2000AD. Its prequel KITTY WANTS A HITTY focuses on two of the book’s main characters, Paul and Kitty McBride, and their bittersweet relationship.

Just a quick reminder that I’ll be at the Sci-Fi Weekender again this year. As always, you’ll find me at my table, once again joined by wingman and fellow genre hack, David Moody.
I’ll have all my titles in tow, including new book, PLASTIC JESUS. I’ll also have a few other surprises, so be sure to come over and say hello.

Hopefully see some of you there!
… are two top blokes.
But wait a minute, we are talking about the same Gerard Brennan and Jesus, right? Gerard Brennan the Norn Irish crime hack and Jesus the rogue computer program from the Dystopian near future state of Maalside?
Yeah, that’s right. Those two.
It’s always great to hear from readers and get pics of folk reading my books.
… from Mr Daryl Duncan, was a particular gem. Really made me LOL, as the young kids say.
Happy Monday, everyone!
