About Graham Storrs
Graham Storrs was raised in the city of Hull in Yorkshire, England. He studied psychology there and at the University of Surrey in Guildford before embarking on a career in artificial intelligence and human-computer interaction research. Later in life, he specialised in software design and his career took him from the UK to Switzerland and, eventually, Australia, where he now lives in a rural idyll with his wife Christine and a Tonkinese cat called Minsky.
Graham has always been a writer and published a large number of non-fiction pieces (including three children's science books) before focusing his energies on fiction. 2008 was a breakthrough year for him when he had his first science fiction short story accepted for publication. Since then he has sold many more stories and his début novel - a sci-fi thriller called Timesplash - was published in 2010 and became a best-seller. It was later released by Pan Macmillan/Momentum along with two sequels - True Path and Foresight - both shortlisted for an Aurealis Award. He has published a total of twenty novels and three short story collections.
Graham continues to write science fiction and is an avid reader of the genre. He is also the author of the Luke Kelly crime series. He devotes most of his time to writing now.

From the brutal curators at ImmerseOrDie.com comes this collection of indie short stories, each a distinct jewel forged in the fires of judgement, and each carrying that simple promise: Guaranteed not to suck.
Becoming a metaman was more of an escape from Ross McGowan's downward-spiralling life than a job he really wanted but years of isolation, degradation and drudgery in the service of the Post-Human Collective would give him plenty of time to regret the choice. The company of Tracey Lane, his magnificent captain and mentor, might have helped him through it, if the discovery of an ancient Martian technology hadn't thrown him into deadly peril and set Earth and the post-humans on the path of war. And crucial to everything that was happening, was the answer to Fermi's old question, "Where are all the aliens?"
Trapped millions of kilometres from home and pressed into service as a human guinea-pig for the post-humans as they pursue their desperate ambitions to escape Earth before the war escalates beyond control, Ross, ever haunted by the trauma of his past, steers a fine line between survival and revolt. As events around the post-humans evolve at breakneck speed, Ross and the other humans in the same predicament are branded collaborators by the governments of Earth and escape from the Post-Human Collective becomes a death sentence.
Metaman is the exciting new novel from best-selling science fiction writer, Graham Storrs, author of the highly-acclaimed Timesplash novels, the Placid Point novels, and many others.
With the help of a washed up ex-cop, Luke sets out to find the real killer, a journey that will take him far beyond the quiet academic life he once knew into the dark corners of the city he loves, from a life of ideas and innocence, into a world of violence and fear.
Coping with his grief and the growing realisation of his own inadequacy, Luke struggles to keep going in his quest for justice. Only the persistence of his strangely driven new friend, Ronnie Walker, keeps him moving forward. But Ronnie’s dark nature frightens Luke too and looks set to drag them both deeper into the shadows behind the bright facade of the life he thought he knew.
Bright City Deep Shadows is the first book in the Like Kelly crime story series.
Hunted by alien warships, the survivors of the crew of the Canta Libre travel back to Earth, only to discover a ferocious global war has broken out in their absence. Earth's governments have branded them traitors and they too are hunting Captain Ashton and his crew for the alien technology they are supposed to have brought back.
Fighting for their lives against old allies and new enemies, only the Canta Libre, with its rag-tag crew of scientists and civilians, can bring the world the weapon it needs to defeat the alien warships hot on their tail. But the strange reality-bending force they have on board is a two-edged sword and, in the end, the Canta Libre may be the biggest threat to human survival of them all.
Now, what is left of the crew of the Canta Libre, Earth's emissaries, must travel on, deeper into the galaxy, to plead for help from another, more powerful race, the Iffot Onni. But their would-be saviours are in the throes of a violent civil war when the humans arrive and Iffot leaders are in no mood to deal with backward aliens from the Milky Way's rimward wasteland.
Struggling to bring their message to the Iffot kings despite factional wars and interspecies treachery, the humans hear that a war has broken out at home. Now their own people have cancelled the mission and are demanding the crew of the Canta Libre return to Earth to face trial for treason. But Captain Robert Ashton and his unlikely collection of civilians, scientists and engineers are determined to save humanity, whatever the cost.
Ronnie Walker’s dark past is about to catch up with him. The dead body in his garden is a message but he doesn’t know from whom, or even what it says. All he knows is that he and everyone around him are in danger and that includes his friend and sometime partner, Luke Kelly. As the police begin their investigation – with Ronnie and Luke as their prime suspects – more people start dying and Luke and Ronnie are helpless to find a single clue as to who this ruthless killer might be.
For Luke, it is a desperate time of worry for the safety of his family, his fiancée and his employees at the Featherfoot Agency but his attempts to keep them all safe while he and Ronnie hunt down the murderer are frequently met with resentment and resistance. He believes the key to finding the killer is in Ronnie’s past but, as usual, Ronnie is reluctant to speak about it and, as the danger grows worse, reluctant even to let Luke become involved.
But Luke and the people he loves are bound to Ronnie’s jeopardy and, as the case unfolds, hunting the murderer who is hunting Ronnie pulls them all into deadly danger despite Luke’s best efforts to keep them out of it.

The police have already decided it was suicide and Luke is wondering how to let his client down gently when hired thugs turn up to warn him off.
Luke's relationship with Ronnie is as bad as ever and getting worse as the case slowly pushes them to the edge. With Ronnie suspected of the murder of a second, perhaps unrelated, victim and Luke the target of a professional hit man, things look hopeless—until an unexpected clue sets them on a path of danger and violence that will end things one way or another.

Now working in European Military Intelligence in Berlin, and dangerous than even a timesplash.

There is plenty of comedy in this otherwise very dark drama. If Nick Hornby had written K-PAX, the result might have been something like this.
