You're really helping me finish my quest, of completing new books and instalments in the Thought Empire series.

For that kind of support I'm happy to share whatever knowledge or experience I have. From my creative work, to my professional work and my life (so far) in publishing. (But I'm shy and don't love the phone, so let's start off slowly with email or through Patreon).

About David M Henley

Hi,
I'm David, sometimes Dave. I'm a sci-fi, spec-fic writer, working on a new project which expands the world from The Hunt for Pierre Junior, and explores digital enhancements to the text-reading environment. 

The Collapse follows man, Thomas Huxley, waking from cryogenic hibernation into an unfamiliar future. As his memories thaw he pieces together the events of his life and re-witnesses the total collapse of society through a crippling cyber war, global pandemics and food shortages right up to the moment when he retreats into hibernation. In five minutes he is about to discover the world he has woken up to.

This is an experimental format, adding subtle imagery, sounds and animation to the reading experience.
  • Some pages take a while to load up, it depends on the mood of your internet connection. I'm trying to make them smaller and faster loading.
  • There is background music you can turn off and on
  • As it’s a countdown until Thomas Huxley wakes up, each page starts with how close he is to wake. You can use these as markers so you can jump to where you are up to
The Hunt for Pierre Junior is available from most places. (which you can read in book form, ebook form or just reviews).

This project is being assisted by Sabweb, the friendliest web monkey I've ever worked with.
