A new 10 story collection of science fiction stories by up and coming writer R. W. Warwick.
Travel across dimensions to find your one true love, or journey to Earth’s next ice age where the terrible consequences of nuclear energy still plague mankind’s descendants. From discoveries on a distant asteroid, to reality itself disappearing in a flash of light. Only when humanity’s back is against the wall, does that spark of redemption shine through!
“Pemberton’s Dial”. A jaded writer has an existential crisis when his latest work is plagiarised by a dark political force.
“Whatever Happened to Pangaea?” Explores a young man’s grip on reality when his world is revealed to him as a construct of his imagination.
“Let the Cold Winds Blow”. Tells the fury of a mother who has lost her son in a senseless intergalactic war.
“It Were Aliens”. Describes a prisoner’s struggle with mankind’s harsh new reality when its future is placed in his hands.
“Beyond Scope”. A first contact tale with a twist, told in the tradition of the Golden Age of science fiction.
“The Far Side of Eternity”. Gives us a glimpse of our distant future, and the outlandish consequences of nuclear energy.
The Dial is a provocative look at the future of humanity, and the dangerous paths we might take.
I’m a writer and teacher from the UK. After leaving university with a Bachelor of Arts in Drama, I lived and worked in London for several years before moving to Japan to become a teacher of English.
I currently reside in Tokyo with my wife where i’m still trying to figure it all out.
Since 2013, I have sold short stories to a variety of publications. My fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in Gathering Storm Magazine, Bewildering Stories, 365 Tomorrows, Story Shack, and others. I also previously worked as an Associate Editor for US horror fiction quarterly Dark Moon Digest.
In 2016, I received an honorable mention from the Writers of the Future Contest for my far-future apocalyptic tale of caution ‘The Far Side of Eternity‘, which is now available as part of The Dial: A Collection of Science Fiction Short Stories.
