It was as a direct result of a video game i produced in 1985 for Artic computing that this Novel came about. AMSTRAD 464

As the story is a direct evolution of the old game. I still love video games to this day, but if this goes well will produce the other stories that the game had as a result if its development.
It was a very large universe of new characters and places.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I had an idea for a video game in the 1980s that was published , but wanted to take the story further, i was made redundant, but this was nt the reason it was that i wanted to share the story with others and this gave me the time to finish it. It was written for the fun and love of doing so. Many friends and other shave said it would make a brilliant film, being honest i am glad that people have enjoyed it and it is out in the world.
