A Turing Test is used to decided whether an artificial intelligence is sentient or not, so why not apply it to a parrot?

It's nice to be published on the 365tomorrows website again. This FREE short story prompted me to write my techno thriller 'The Muslim Prince.'

The word 'Panacea' means a remedy for all ills and in this case its all the things that make older people insecure. I've brought back Mary the drone pilot from my novel 'Chronoscape.' She's retired from the Ar Force and is living in a market town in Suffolk, UK.

Bewildering Stories publishes my 'Magic' story 'Ancient and Modern'

This is one of the few stories I've written that rely on 'Magic' or in this case the Old Religion crossing swords with the New Technology.
Now that I've finished my novel 'The Steampunk Adventures of Harry Lampeter' I'd like to write more abut the White Witch.

AntipodeanSF have just published my comic sci-fi story 'Couples Therapy.'

I've written several stories about an old guy living with a synthetic (robot) companion, after his wife has died. Sometimes the robot has sentience and human feelings, sometimes not. It's from my collection 'Dead People on Facebook' which is available on Amazon.

Chris Herron at Tall Tale TV has just podcast one of my few 'magical' stories. It's about a mysterious man with a musical instrument called a 'hurdy gurdy.' From my collection of speculative fiction: 'Dead People on Facebook' which is available on Amazon Kindle, it's FREE, short and rather mysterious.

Meghan and Harry

As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leave the British Royal Family and move to Canada I feel it's worth mentioning my book,'The Muslim Prince.' The main character is a Prince of the House of Windsor who marries a Princess of the House of Saud, converts to Islam and leaves the UK. It was published last July but most of it was written two years ago.
