Pirates of Harvey 3

Avast M’hearties Pirate Day be a’coming. So batten down y’hatches. Splice the main sails. Steer with the wind, and damn y’eyes, for that callow cove Captain Duckman will keel haul the lot of y’ if y’nay pay him some mind…

International Talk Like A Pirate Day is on the horizon, and with it comes the release of Harvey Duckman Presents, The Pirate Special.

Just like the main series of Harvey Duckman Anthologies this is a collection of fifteenth exciting new writers and established independent authors of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, horror and Steampunk. To celebrate this I’m running a feature for the new few weeks on the authors and stories featured in this edition, cause Captain Duckman made me and there was mention of rum…

Mostly because of the rum…

Kate Baucherel became a sci fi fan the first time she saw the Daleks from behind the sofa, Kate works on the application of new and emerging technologies to solve business problems. Sometimes her imagination gets the better of her, and the fictional worlds in her writing are rooted in the possibilities already at our fingertips. Her work includes the SimCavalier futurist cybercrime series, several short stories, and non-fiction books for business leaders.

The future is a strange place, both familiar and not in equal measure. When it comes to authors predicting the world of tomorrow who is better qualified than an expert on emerging technologies. If you want to know what the world will be like in twenty years time you could do a lot worse than to ask Kate or read her Sim Caviler novels. Elegantly paced thrillers that hang heavy on the worlds of cybercrime and cybercrime fighters. All set just a couple or three decades from now. A world with a shiny bright veneer, but dark undertones. In a world where cryptocurrency is king and hackers fight wars of the keyboard. All this made all the more believable because this world of tomorrow is based on the technology that’s coming oh so soon, with characters that feel and sound real, because the world they inhabit is, we just haven’t arrived there yet, but we will…

Her third Sim Caviler novel is in final editing and due sometime before Christmas, which I for one look forward to. She also recently decided that hyper-realistic near future fiction was not enough and her latest Harvey Duckman have featured the adventures of an intergalactic tourist doing their gap year and the occasional catapulting octopod barman… At least we assume she is making these ones up, its hard to be sure, Kate, you see, knows things….

The Harvey Pirates Special comes out on International Talk Like A Pirate Day on the 19th of September and will be available in paperback and on kindle, the kindle version is available for pre-order now… So get it or I’ll make yer walk the plank…
