‘Downtime’ – ‘Zero’ side-story and #FlashForFriday

For Throwback Thursday this week I thought it would be nice to share some fiction – specifically a Zero side-story. This was released with a special e-book edition of Zero last year through the crowdfunding campiagn but is also posted for free here on my WordPress (although the special e-book edition did have a couple of exclusive Zero side-stories that are not avialable anywhere else)

It’s a nice little and rare glimpse (since Zero is told entirely from the protagonists Hugo and Webbs’ points of view) of two of the chracters close to Webb during a trying time in the story.


J. S. Collyer Science Fiction Writer

If you haven’t read it here then you have probably heard me shouting from the mountaintops that my debut science fiction novel, Zero, has been accepted for publication and is due to be released August 2014. YES IT’S TRUE. THEY’RE LETTING ME LOOSE ON AMAZON.


You can read the official publication notice here and, if you sign up to Dagda’s newsletter whilst you’re there, you will get updates on the book as well as news on their other works. They accept submissions of poetry, short and flash fiction as well as novel manuscripts and have a rapidly growing catalogue worth checking out.

Rest assured however that I shall not be shutting up about this for some considerable time, so keep an eye on The Path also for cover reveals, commentary on the bittersweet process that is editing, as well as my usual waffle on writing, reading, the universe…
