So far to date I've posted a couple of SF short stories on the Kindle store (actually one would be considered a novelette) but I haven't uploaded any novels yet. Partly because it seems to me short stories are a really good fit for ereaders.

What do you all think? Do you just want to read novels or does having shorter works to dip into make sense too? I'd love to know what you think.

If you fancy a read my SF works are these :

The Armageddon Machine
An SF novelette in the Golden Age tradition.

The last, battered remnant of the feared Draconian starfleet limps through space, shadowed by ships of the victorious Million Star worlds. But the Draconian ship is still a terrible threat : it is the Draconian's final weapon, a device that can trigger the cascading collapse of space/time itself.

Mackenzie, in charge of the Million Star fleet, fears what will happen if he attempts to destroy the device. Then, one of the semi-mythical Xin ancients arrives on his ship, suggesting a plan that appears to endanger all of reality. In the final battle with the Draconians, Mackenzie must decide whether to trust the Xin or not. The fate of the universe itself hangs on his actions ...

Live from the Continuing Explosion
A near-future SF short story. A terrorist sets off a bomb in New York's Grand Central Station. But it is immediately obvious this is no ordinary explosion. Everybody nearby is caught within a bubble in which time grinds almost to a halt. The world watches in horror as the explosion unfolds in close-up slow-motion.

Kirsten Campbell, a young girl, escapes the blast but her twin brother is caught inside it. She can do nothing but watch him there, frozen, as she ages. Meanwhile the explosion, and then Kirsten herself, become the focus for cataclysmic change the world over.
