A brand new novella
Waking up to total darkness
is unnerving.
But where?
Not even recalling your own name
is frightening.
Who are you?

Novels and Compilations by Colin Alcock
The books I have written cover a diversity of genres and are aimed simply at providing entertaining reads, rather than great literary works. Novels you can bury yourselves in for escapist pleasures and compilations of my shorter works that showcase a plethora of mood teasers. There's drama, there's humour, there's the joy of living, the despair of death, in the present and in the future, plus a few much darker that cross the line from our world to those we only imagine – or perhaps prefer not too.

No heavy reading. Just books to enjoy.

There are simple, moving stories, too, like Emilia's Sorrow, which is a recently published novella (2021) following the troubled mind of a post war schoolgirl, consequent to her sister's death. Ideal for a commuter read - some of you might complete it in a couple of journeys.

But the books aren't the end of the story. There are tales as yet unpublished and some published elsewhere. Amongst them, new writing that appears first on this website and stories plucked from my books or previously published on other websites, including
The Cabinet of Heed, Reflex Press, Ad Hoc Fiction and Paragraph Planet.

All the titles found here just to give you a taste of what you will find in Paperback or Kindle eBook formats direct from
Amazon and some are also listed online at Waterstones.

Some like it short

On the Shorts page you'll find shorter works, which will sometimes be an entirely new story or one not published in any of the compilations. Maybe, even, an extract from one of the novels, or perhaps just a story from way back in the archives, that some will not have read before. It's always worth taking a look.
