About David Flin
David Flin isn’t quite sure how he’s come to have collected a lifetime’s experience without really having had a life plan or any of the things people have said are essential for success in life. He was in the Royal Marines for around 13 years, until one day he forgot to duck. Then he spent a bit over a decade doing this and that, until he worked out that writing was quite a comfortable way of making a living. He’s written very technical stuff about gas turbines and the power industry, and has branched out into writing fiction, some of which draws on personal experience.

Then, someone had an idea. We were writers. We should write a book, an anthology, with proceeds going to help with the rebuilding of Ukraine.
From that, things flowed quickly. The theme of rebuilding became adopted: “Building a Better Future.”
That’s what you’re holding in your hands. The product of a group of historical writers trying to do something to help the people of Ukraine.
There’s a whole genre of literature devoted to Alternate History, where all these questions of “What If?” are addressed. There’s one What If question that hasn’t been addressed.
“What if I decided to write an Alternate History book? How would I go about that?” That has been a question without an answer.
What if werewolves were a real threat in fifties Europe? What if we could fix the human brain? What if Shelley hadn't gone to Switzerland?
What if we could save ourselves from terror?
Thirteen tales of horror - thirteen tales of another doom.
Eight years ago, riots in London turned into a more general disturbance. Order was finally restored by the Army. Laws were passed to ensure that it never happened again.
Six survivors of the London Uprising swore that next time they would get it right. They aren't entirely sure what it is that they want, but they've reached the point of believing that anything would be better than what they have.
They're far from heroes. They are certainly not knights in shining armour. They're simple driven by the belief that there must be something better, and they'll do whatever it takes to achieve it.
This is their story.
Tehran is undergoing what seems to be approaching a major civil disturbance.
All in all, it looks like he is going to have his work cut out for him.
Thomas, Frank, and Windy will need all of their wit and guile to overcome the troubles, along with the surprises - good as well as bad - that will come their way.
This, Thomas and his buddies quickly realise, is no longer the fun and games that they'd been having to date getting here. This was now walking into what is potentially harm's way.
Thomas, Frank, Windy, and Peter will have a lot to cope with.
This is book 3 of the Building Jerusalem series.
This is Book 5 of the Building Jerusalem series.
Now, Sea Lion Press authors both old and new consider how that history could have been different. What if Corporal Hitler had died in the trenches, or the war really had been ‘over by Christmas’? The poppy petals are scattered to a new pattern by the tides of ‘what if?’ Includes the Sidewise Award-nominated 'N'oublions Jamais' by Tom Anderson and Bruno Lombardi.
Fourteen tales of the Great War as it wasn’t – but could have been.
David Flin edits a collection of counterfactuals certainly worthy of a chuckle or two, including tales of the absurd; carefully-crafted puns; farce; and many aspects of humour. Vikings and Macedonians and Soviets and the Wild West are here, as well as – for reasons that baffle him – a large helping of cats.
Not that the four friends have any say in the matter. Nonetheless, they know that the world isn’t fair, and they have a strong belief that it should be. It doesn’t seem that there is much they can do from their lowly position, especially as it seems that another crisis is brewing, one which might lead to a major conflict.
This is the first book in the Building Jerusalem series. Originally released as the first part of Bring Me My Bow, which is now no longer available.
When he returned, he knew he had a Destiny. He just didn’t know what that Destiny was. And the world was very, very different to the one he had known.
Still, there was a writer of films, which are like stored plays, who seemed to know how things worked. Bill seemed to understand how this world worked. Whatever his Destiny was, King Arthur would do his duty. His first task: to get the part of King Arthur in a film of that name.
