Elsewhere on the WyrdStar website:

WyrdStar ABOUT WYRDSTAR - A brief summary of WyrdStar Books, the self-publishing venture of Steph Bennion, yours truly. This page includes Press Resources. I write primarily 'New Space Opera' for young adults and adults young-at-heart...
Atomic Twitten ATOMIC TWITTEN is singer/guitarist Taylor's and my own small but perfectly-formed acoustic duo, playing pop, jazz and rock tunes and a few original songs in a folky style. Currently based in Hastings on England's south coast, we play classic tunes of the 1960s to current hits and a few originals. Elsewhere on this website are the Danse Macabre Archives, our earlier foray into music. This band took its own brand of folk-rock, halloween-pop cabaret around London and beyond, including sets at the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Worcester Music Festival.
Blake's 7 BLAKE'S 7 - I am a big fan of Blake's 7, the BBC TV science-fiction show from the late seventies / early eighties. Budgets were low, special effects were primitive and the sets were often almost laughable. So what made the show so memorable for me? The writing was excellent, the characters were well-defined and the cast were superb. Read more on my Blake's 7 page!
2014 reads The Smashwords Reads 2014 page is collection of short reviews of the indie ebooks that took my fancy in 2014 (plus older reviews from 2012 and 2013), complete with my Goodreads star ratings. Most are science-fiction: reviews are obviously subjective and my tastes can be a little quirky at times. Every year since I've thought about bringing this list up to date (I read a lot of indie titles) but as yet it hasn't happened...

Some favourite science / science-fiction websites:

io9 IO9 - One of my favourite websites is io9, a daily online publication that covers science, science-fiction and fantasy (films, television and books) and the future. I never fail to find something worth reading here!
The Mary Sue THE MARY SUE - An entertaining news website highlighting women in the geek world. To quote The Mary Sue's mission statement: "We want simple things, like to be able to visit a comic book store without feeling out of place. To be able to buy a video game without getting the sense that the cashier thinks we're buying it for someone else." You get the drift...

Websites for readers and writers:

Moldiwarts Moldiwarts Pantomine Scripts is the website of my brother Chris Bennion, who is a dab hand at creating entertaining scripts for pantomime. He describes them as: "...silly, funny, witty and full of bad jokes, one liners and an almost coherent plot..."; in other words, exactly what pantomime should be!
Awesome Indies Awesome Indies showcases the best of independent fiction. Books listed on this website have been evaluated against specific criteria for quality fiction and deemed to be of the same quality of craftmanship as books published by mainstream publishing houses. Given all that, I'm pleased that Hollow Moon and Paw-Prints of the Gods made the grade!
Alien Star Books Alien Star Books is a website dedicated to listing science-fiction and fantasy books for teenagers and young adults 'of colour'. In other words, if you're tired of seeing the white guy be the hero, here's some alternatives.
Ebookaroo Australian indie sci-fi author Patty Jansen runs Ebookaroo, a regular newsletter of author-run book promotions from many different indie speculative fiction writers: new releases, special offers and giveaways!
Cover Art The lovely book-cover artwork for Hollow Moon, Paw-Prints of the Gods and City Of Deceit was done by Victor Habbick of Victor Habbick Visions, an artist with a particular interest in science and technology.
TV Tropes TV Tropes is a marvellously-entertaining website that is a: "catalogue of the tricks of the trade for writing fiction." Tropes are devices and conventions that writers can reasonably rely on as being present in a reader's mind and expectation. I could spend hours in the section on science-fiction...
