PRAISE FOR BLOOD CAPITAL

"I highly recommend Batten's unique take on the zombie apocalypse!"

Jacqui Castle, author of The Seclusion

"You absolutely need to check out this book."

Wesley Reid

FOREWORD

You’ve found your way to the internet home of Robert Batten (me), an author of science-fiction and fantasy from Tasmania. Take off those uncomfortable shoes and find a pair of slippers, grab a cuppa (maybe even something stronger), and settle into a comfy spot on the couch. If you poke around, you’ll find information on my writing, short stories, news from the sci-fi and fantasy genres, and book recommendations. 

You can even sign up to something called a “newsletter” where I send you monthly highlights! How cool is that?

Oh, I have a post-apocalyptic sci-fi on its way called Blood Capital (being published by Inkshares). It’s a hard sci-fi take on some old supernatural tropes in dystopian Sydney. Check out my page on the book to learn more and access some excerpts.

I hope you enjoy what you find. Feel free to reach out if you’d like to chat about any of it.
Robert Batten, October 2018
