Cargo Cult: More Formats Coming Soon



Feeling giddy with accomplishment. I finally managed to get Cargo Cult past the Smashwords “autovetter”. This delightful piece of software (which used to be more accurately called the “meat grinder” I believe) is one of the most finicky gatekeepers in the whole of publishing. In the past, I have failed utterly. I still have [...]

Cover Reveal: Cargo Cult by Graham Storrs

Cargo Cult cover


Next month, on All Fools Day, I am releasing my latest novel, Cargo Cult. It’s a sci-fi comedy, so I have no idea how it might be received – comedy is such a personal thing – but everyone who has read it so far, has loved it – including people who are not directly [...]

Aw c’mon, Brisbane’s a real swell place.


With just three weeks to go until the publication of my new novel, Heaven is a Place on Earth, the demons have begun whispering in my ear, telling me all the reasons people might find not to like it. Not that I need demons to remind me! You just have to scan a few [...]

Heaven Cover Reveal Redux


You know, self-publishing sucks in so many ways – mainly because you have to do all the boring bits yourself – but one of the ways it doesn’t suck is this: you get control over everything. Not that I’m a control freak or anything, it’s just that having control over everything absolutely beats the [...]

Snowy – A Sci-Fi Story About a Cat.


We all love cats, right? I mean, they’re small, vicious killing machines that devastate our native wildlife and infest us with deadly brain parasites, but they’re soooo cute! Am I right?

I’m glad you agree.

And we all love science fiction too, yeah? I mean an awful lot of it is just Boy’s Own [...]

The Dunning-Kruger Effect Explains So Much


He was better than average too.

I came across the Duning-Kruger effect in a series of tweets by an amusing fellow called @GodlessAtheist who argued that it is the reason why religious people are so smug. I don’t doubt that this is true. (Have you ever heard a religious type arguing any scientific [...]

Evolution and Space


I have a new short story out as a “single” on Amazon. It’s called “Finding the Future” and it’s priced at $0.99c for those on a low budget. For pensioners, concession card holders and people who wouldn’t spit in my mouth if my teeth were on fire, you can actually get the story for [...]

This and That


Yes, an inconsequential post. A mere update. The kind of thing for which the weblog was invented, but whose current home is on Facebook and Twitter where ideas are few and gibber rules the roost. But I’m in a nostalgical state of whimsy and the urge to talk trivia is upon me.

Why this [...]



It’s about the half-way point on my second TimeSplash giveaway under the Kindle Select scheme and the result seems to be about the same as last time – thousands and thousands of books snatched up, mostly in the US. At the time of writing, a day and a half into the event, about 13,000 [...]

A Few Quick Reads (One for Free!)


I’ve had a few short works appearing in anthologies and mags lately and I thought you might be interested if I did a quick summary – especially since one is free and they’re all easily accessible.

The Earth Ship – This is a longish short story that I put out a couple of weeks [...]
