Suppose We
« on: May 14, 2019, 11:59:46 PM »
Is there anything special about May 20th?
Yes! Five important events occurred on that day:
1498 Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama discovers the sea route to India.
1609 Shakespeare’s sonnets are published for the first time.
1932 Amelia Earhart is the first person to fly solo across the Atlantic.
1972 Gaynor Smith marries Geoff Nelder in Latchford Methodist Chapel tucked in between the Mersey and the Manchester Ship Canal. Yes 47 years ago!
2019 SUPPOSE WE is published – the first surreal science fiction novella in the Flying Crooked series.
Blurb:
When a ship crashlands on a faraway planet the crew needs local help. Unfortunately, the natives are a million years ahead of us. Ignored, the crew has to find a way to get attention.
Bringing back a sense of discovery and wonder to science fiction.
Magdelena Ball at Compulsive Reader: There’s always an element of action, a hint of steamy romance, and Nelder’s trademark twist.
John F Keane there is great sensory engagement here and many great phrases and descriptions. A masterclass in those, in fact.
It’s not May 20th yet but you can preorder the Kindle on Amazon already at

The image on the cover is from this strange planet in the Keplerian 20 system and so is the butterfly. It’s alien. It’s not a real butterfly yet wondrous.
Published with great foresight by the indie publisher LL-Publications.

That makes May 20th pretty special, right enough.  Best of luck with it, Geoff.

Is it okay to post in here even though the previous post is 120 days old?
It's because the sequel to SUPPOSE WE was released as a kindle last night - paperback to follow.

If you thought scifi Suppose We was rather strange in places, just you wait until you read FALLING UP.

Our tiny band of human astronauts on Kepler-20h have finally persuaded the highly advanced natives to recognise their existence and arranged a deal but a new threat arrives with alien AI and their very weird planet busting devices.

Thanks Jo. At least two readers have read Falling Up and asking for the third book now. They're reading the series much much faster than I can write it.
