The Pale  is a sci-fi novel in which the canini (genetically modified talking wolf-dogs) show more compassion to abandoned human children than all the half-machine humans inside the Pale, a massive post-apocalyptic city. The Pale was published by Odyssey Books  in SEPTEMBER 2017. Read a sample here.


The second instalment in the Pale trilogy, Broad Plain Darkening, was published by Odyssey Books in October 2018. The wonderful canini return and are joined by the magnificent equii. Together they work with the tribesfolk and settlers to survive in a land where the Pale’s humacines control most of the resources. See the full list of characters here.
