PRAISE FOR BLOOD CAPITAL
"One of the most intriguing premises I've seen."
Christopher Huang, author of A Gentleman's Murder
"I highly recommend Batten's unique take on the zombie apocalypse!"
Jacqui Castle, author of The Seclusion
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

Netflix is bringing us a new live-action Avatar movie
That's right — a new Avatar: The Last Airbender movie! It will be a reboot, not a sequel to the last live-action attempt, and the reports tell us this one won't be whitewashed. Queue interest. The announcement also confirmed the animated series' original creators will be helming the production, which gives me hope this will […]
You can now buy young blood with PayPal
As if every day didn't seem to bring fresh news about CRISPR that suggests Blood Capital will become reality before I can get the book on shelves, you can now buy "young" blood using PayPal and have it stuffed in your aging shell of a body. The New York Post has the story here, but […]
