Read full description of the books:
In a future where energy shortage leads to the collapse of economies and debt-ridden governments, the wealthy live in gated communities, while the rest exist on residue-ridden food handouts in the lawless wastelands that were once cities. In the Green Zone, two parents want a better life for their children. Jacob Adams fixes things for people in the nearest gated community. Lawrence Foster, an expert sniper, enforces order. Henry Adams has an ill-fated crush on Suzie Foster, but when his father is murdered, Lawrence executes the gang and with the bounty, he sends Susan to college, to become a lawyer. He also teaches Henry the art of killing and as he dies from the residues, he leaves Henry the means to maintain order.
The invention of fusion power finally gives economic growth, and giant monopoly corporations begin to form. David Sheldon acquires companies cheaply and forcibly, and on sells them to corporations. Suzie joins a corporation and thanks to her father's ruthlessness, she is employed to acquire and absorb companies. Henry believes in a return to a time of personal freedom and opportunities, but law, order and justice is now based on user pays, and the wealthy win, unless they are dead. Then David Sheldon and Suzie Foster turn their attention to the Green Zone. Only the most ruthless can survive.

Read information about the authorI am a semi-retired chemist, PhD from the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, and during this PhD my results came out on the wrong side of a scientific debate that was going on at the time. This story is being told on my scientific blog http://my.rsc.org/blogs/84 from October, 2012 onwards. The net result of this was I became perhaps a little skeptical of how science proceeds, and later, when invited to write a scientific book, I began "Elements of Theory". I was somewhat too slow, and the fact the editor found out that I was not a professor did not help. The project was orphaned, but I continued, and four volumes are now available on Amazon as ebooks. The first shows how to form theory, and provides seventy problems to test theory-forming skill. The second involves an alternative theory of planetary formation and biogenesis. The third elaborates on my alternative interpretation of quantum mechanics, while the fourth surveys biofuel technology, an area in which I have spent much of my scientific career
I had also tried writing a novel as an undergraduate, which was rejected four times, after which I gave up, however some time later I revisited this, and later self-published. However, I was barred from publicity through a different commercial venture, and I found selling this novel without any advertising somewhat difficult. About 1990, with spare time, thanks to the financial crisis, I began writing a future history, which is now being self-published as ebooks. Two of these, Puppeteer, Troubles involve a future in which we do nothing to address declining oil supplies, and hence involve a dystopian future. Red Gold, and the "First Contact" trilogy involve a future with Martian settlement and a major Federation of countries, and is thus also involving an economic future in which resources become scarce. The last, Jonathon Munros, illustrates the problems of evil androids. The Gaius Claudius Scaevola trilogy is partly about military strategy, partly about what science is really about, and partly about how humans could live in an advanced alien society.
