Hard SF for Connoisseurs "Real page turners in the footsteps of Clarke & Heinlein"      

Green Door - a hard science fiction novel

 

Green door science fiction novel GREEN DOOR is Tony's third science fiction novel. He had a rough idea for a mystery lurking behind a green door in a normal British seaside village. When he began to write it, there was no plot. He decided to let the story follow its own course. Soon the plot created itself and, like a chess game where you are being forced into certain moves against your will, the plot took control over the writing and the Green Door mystery solved itself.

If that doesn't make sense to you, then, frankly, you have no option but to read it.

The most incisive comment on the story was made on Amazon:

"Time travel, quantum entanglement, ancient buildings and an ordinary man, walking his dog, who ultimately saves humanity... Excellent!"

INTRODUCTION

Henry Mackay is walking his dog along the side of an ancient convent wall. He glances at the peeling paint of the green door as he passes then, a few strides later, stops in his tracks. What green door? He'd never seen it before.

He turns and walks back to the door and all he sees is ivy covering a stone wall. There is no door. Is he hallucinating? Had he eaten too much cheese? Is he day-dreaming?

It starts a trail of events which becomes an unbelievable adventure to save humanity.

Comment on THE VISITOR

I love it! You describe the science so well and the way you write takes me to Eve's reality. She's brilliant.


Another rejection letter from an agent:

“Thanks for sending me the material on The Visitor and Mindslip.

“It is good to see that these are getting good reviews, but I’m afraid I didn’t hugely take to the narrative style, and wouldn’t therefore be a good advocate.

“I’m sorry to not have better news, but thanks again for the opportunity to consider your work. I hope you find representation soon, and wish you every success.

“All the best,”

Comment on MINDSLIP

Oh man! You evil, evil man! You made me choke. Well, I heard many women wish some men had the chance to experience first hand the joys of giving birth. Lol.


Comment on MINDSLIP

I’m in absolute awe at this book it’s so amazing to read on a Saturday or whenever. Thanks for writing it. I appreciate good works like this.

Comment on THE VISITOR

Great hard scifi from a developing leader of the genre, strong characters living in a thought-provoking world all too similar to our own. A real page turner in the footsteps of Asimov, Clarke and others, highly recommend.

Comment on THE VISITOR

5.0 out of 5 stars Space is full of wonders and this book portrays a possibility.

Format: Kindle Edition

Spent part of my spring break reading this book. I couldn't put it down. It's an exciting story, with characters I've connected to the past few days. The ending is sad, but there's a sort of happy ending if you have an open mind about life.

Loch Ness Understood email:

"Well done, Tony, an absolutely fantastic read... felt compelled to leave a review on Amazon.

"One of the final chapters about you having a stroke is much scarier than any monster...hope you are keeping well. Anyway... my review:

"Always been fascinated with the unexplained...ghosts,ufo,s,loch Ness monsters etc etc. Tony begins his story just like me as a sort of believer then digs deeper into the world of fakery,hoaxers and scientific study, and ends up involved and embroiled in the industry that basically keeps the monster a reality... a fantastic insight into Tony and Adrian Shine's life covering all the history of the loch from ice ages, to dodgy business deals, the photographs to sonar scans... also Tony describing the humble beginnings of the loch Ness visitor centre to what it is today.a major tourist attraction... if you believe or if you don't believe, the monster's legend will never go away and this is a fantastic book that adds reality to the fantasy..."


THE VISITOR comment: Jessicaf5377

Omg I LOVED it!!!!!! Please please write their adventures! I wanna see the cool stuff you come up with in the other worlds!

Sidenote: I'm so embarrassed to say that I guarantee that's how our world would act and come across to them if an alien did come! Makes me sad and disappointed. Maybe that's why we HAVEN'T been visited publicly, if there is such a thing. They know we couldn't handle it and we would just take advantage of the technology and never grow emotionally and mentally. :-(


LOCH NESS UNDEFRSTOOD comment: Angela Young

Read many books on the mystery of loch Ness. This is by far one of the best and also one of the most well written and an honest and incisive true account...fantastic read


THE VISITOR comment: "A fast paced scientifically accurate plot that is thought provoking and predictive of technological development based on todays devices. An enjoyable read that I highly recommend."


Agents seem to be spring-cleaning their slush pile of manuscripts. Two rejections within twenty-four hours. This is the second one, which is also the quickest rejection I've had:

"Thank you very much for your enclosures and letter of the 9th April. I have looked at these and found them very well done. I am afraid though, I am being very very cautious as to what I take on and I just don’t feel able to take this further. But I do wish you every success elsewhere and my position is more a reflection of the market-place than the material itself.

"Thank you again for thinking of me.

"My best,

"Peter §§§§§§"

Got to get back up and send some more off.
