Meet the Author

Simon Haynes is the author of four Hal Spacejock novels, a number of articles on writing and publishing, and several short stories, one of which collected an Aurealis Award in 2001. He divides his time between writing fiction and computer software, with a daily 25-40km bike ride to blow the cobwebs away.

Born in the UK and raised in the south of Spain, Simon emigrated to Australia with his family in 1983. He's a founding member of Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, and lives in Perth with his wife and two children.

His goal is to write fifteen Hal Spacejock books before someone takes his keyboard away.

    Choppy and abrupt

    He doesn't give enough detail to make the story flow, the characters are unlikeable and the premise just isn't that great.
