The War of the Worlds – In Real Time #2

Who are the authors of this novel approach to serialisation?

Strangely enough, there’s me! If you’re not sure who I am, well a little introduction might be in order. I originally started this blog as a place to demonstrate my amazing writing skills and publicise my books. It turned into my soapbox.

If you’re wondering about the spelling used here (everyone who’s a writer is a bit obsessed with spelling and grammar) – I write in Australian English, because I’m Australian. For US readers, that mostly means less Zs, and more Us. For example, exercise, colour, honour, organise. But we also like double letters – mostly Ls. As in travelled, for example. You can find my books on Hague Publishing’s website, but also on all major platforms. I’m probably best known for my Frontier Series – and the starcats in them. Starcats are huge, 100kg, glow in the dark felines who protect their owners form their dangerous planet, and of course, invading aliens. See below, for Shanna, and her starcats, Twister and Storm.

So, back to me. Here’s my offical ‘bio’:

Leonie Rogers

 Originally from Western Australia, Leonie now lives in NSW in the Upper Hunter. She is the author of ‘Frontier Incursion’, ‘Frontier Resistance’, and ‘Frontier Defiant’ (YA Scifi) and a new fantasy series, ‘The Chronicles of Albatar’ – currently two books in. All released by Hague Publishing. She also works part time as a physiotherapist.

Leonie has a past life as a volunteer firefighter and SES member, and once trekked almost six hundred kilometres with eight camels and several other human beings.  She is married with two adult children, two dogs and two cats, one of whom frequently handicaps her ability to use a lap-top computer.

But of course there are more authors than myself.

Michael Cnudde

 Writer, editor, corporate communications professional, and a former educator. A fan of alternate history, he is the author of ‘War Plan Crimson, A Novel of Alternate History’, and ‘Elvis Saves JFK!’ a book of short alternate history fiction. Michael believes H.G. Well’s ‘The War of the Worlds’ is the first, and in many ways the best, science fiction novel he’d ever read. He is currently working on the sequel to ‘War Plan Crimson’. Diagnosed with autism late in life, Michael is an advocate for autistic people, working to increase autism acceptance.

 Andrew J. Harvey

Andrew spent his high-school years in the school’s library lost in the worlds of Andre Norton, Robert Heinlein, and Isaac Asimov. Reading in turn led to writing with the first draft of ‘The Portal Adventures’ originally being completed to read to his two sons at night. The series has since been published by Peasantry Press.

A passionate reader of Alternate History the second book in his ‘Clemhorn Trilogy’, Nadir is shortly to be released by Zmok Books.

Andrew’s short-story ‘1827: Napoleon in Australia’ was shortlisted for the international 2021 Sideways Awards for Alternate History, while also winning the 2020 Best WA Professional SF Short Work, Western Australian Science Fiction Achievement Awards (Tin Ducks).

 Ken Vickery

Ken is a Western Australian author who writes to see past stereotypes and to convey the power of humanity in all of its incredible variety. He loves creating outlandish characters and putting them in bizarre situations to see what happens. To him it is part of the joy of storytelling. In addition, to allowing him to embrace social issues from a new and humorous perspective.

 HG Wells (of course!)

Herbert George Wells (21 September 1866 – 13 August 1946) was an English writer. Prolific in many genres, he wrote more than fifty novels and dozens of short stories. His non-fiction output included works of social commentary, politics, history, popular science, satire, biography and autobiography. Wells is now best remembered for his science fiction novels and has been called the ‘father of science fiction’. (Wikipedia 7 Apr 2023)
