by stephenpalmersf

I’m delighted to say that my new novel Tommy Catkins is published by Infinity Plus Books on 26th July. Big thanks to Keith Brooke for his excellence as an editor and his constancy as a friend.

The novel’s cover is finished, and will be premiered next month.


1915. Following a horrific experience at Verdun, Tommy Catkins – shell shocked and suffering head injuries – is sent to a mysterious island hospital in Wiltshire, where he is subjected to the primitive treatments of the era. But the island appears to be a portal to the enigmatic world of Onderwater, where lives a race of blue-skinned people with tails. Will Tommy be tempted by Onderwater, or will the love of Nurse Vann pull him back to reality, and recovery?
