It seems that Colin just can't help adding extra feathers to his cap, as this latest foray into fiction demonstrates superbly.
Real Powers is techno-socio future-gazing word porn. Colin brings together current technological weak signals and crafts them into a plausible, convincing and may I say exciting future. It's clear that Colin knows his stuff as his descriptions of what we may see are deeply rooted in existing technology, with only a few instances of artistic licence.
Add to this the narrative of shifting societal and economic circumstances and some big explosions, and you've got the makings of some darn fine indie thriller.
Should you read the book? It's like half the price of your favourite sugary coffee-based milk beverage, so yes - of course you should.
I for one can't wait to read what happens next. Get on it, Colin.
