I’m very happy to say that my novella Landfall has been published today by Paper Road Press as the fifth in their Shortcuts series of novellas, and is now available from Amazon for $2.99. It’s had its first review, too, by Lee Murray, and I think it sums up the story very nicely:
In Landfall, by Tim Jones, a survivor reaches the far flung shores of New Zealand, where xenophobia is the order of the day. A commentary on racial tension and the impacts of socialisation, this novella hit home for me in the light of current anti-Chinese rhetoric regarding foreign investment in New Zealand property. History, it seems, likes to repeat itself, and this dystopian future cuts close to the bone. With his typical raw and poetic prose, and a highly topical theme, this is a must-read for all New Zealanders.
Landfall is available in .mobi format for the Kindle and will also be available for the Kobo.
