Author has written 10 stories for Warhammer, and Mass Effect.

I'm a postgraduate former postgraduate in my late twenties very early thirties, still living in the vicinity of London. I also sometimes write stuff, although not so much as I probably should.

I have mainly used this place in the past for Warhammer 40K-related stuff, although note that if you're looking for 'exactly like cannon', then they probably won't be for you. That said, at the moment, I don't really see myself doing any more 40K stuff for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately 'The Misfits' in particular has a logjam of problems sat underneath it (witness the collapse in quality of the more recent chapters) and I have no idea how to disentangle them :( Sad but true!

In addition to the Warhammer stuff I've also posted some Mass Effect-related fiction. These range from pretty crack-y to fairly serious. ("Sideways to Zero" in particular has a bad case of Big Ideas Lurking In The Background; probably why I'm making so little progress on it!) One of them - 'Convolution Kernel' - is a surviving chunk from an 'alternate end' for ME3 that I was cooking up at one point.

I do try to keep up to date with my correspondence, but I've had some issues with my email service eating FF ones. So if you feel you should have had a reply from me by now, you're very probably right, and please accept my sincere apologies!

Anyway, I hope you like my stuff. If you do, please feel free to comment.

I also have an online gallery which has some 40K and Mass Effect-related artwork on it, too, that being here.

I also have a public blog, where I (occasionally) talk about fannish things; that's davidnm2009 over at Wordpress.

To Fall by Ghurlag reviews
A short story i was writing as a last-minute entry for a Black Library Forums workshop. I had half an hour to go until submissions closed and i was 400 words over limit, so i decided 'why not' and posted it here instead. Enjoy.

What It Is To Lose reviews
Harbinger gets a nasty surprise; Commander Shepard defeats the Reapers by teaching them how to lose. A thoroughly-daft piece of crack, and also an alternate end for ME3. Arguably no more bizarre than pre-EC Synthesis.
Mass Effect - Rated: T - English - Sci-Fi/Humor - Chapters: 1 - Words: 1,330 - Reviews: 4 - Favs: 13 - Follows: 4 - Published: 12/29/2013 - Shepard (F), Harbinger - Complete
The Schemes of the Reapers reviews
Thrent Krall, an ambitious krogan warlord, talks to someone whom he really shouldn't. He goes in search of an understandable-in-context but breathtakingly ill-advised deal. But why are the Reapers being so generous? What do they want ... and will Krall be pleased to learn their price?

Sideways to Zero reviews
Dr. Nassana T'Saith, a junior asari scientist, has hit a brick wall in her career. Frustrated and annoyed, she searches for options. However, her attempts to resolve the situation may just lead to discoveries no-one could ever have expected... (This is a speculative prequel, set a long time before the events of the main trilogy, using a group of non-cannonical characters.)

Relationship Counselling reviews
A short piece of post-Control Ending silliness ... Liara tries to deal with a frustrating and confusing interpersonal situation.

Convolution Kernel reviews
Commander Shepard finds herself somewhere. But where? How did she get here? And why can't she remember anything? (I didn't much rate the ME3 endings either, so here are a few hints as to how I'd have done it...)

The Misfits reviews
Alastar, Nasty and Patreus are training to be Space Marines - or trying to, anyway. Ever get bored of Chapter-zombie, personality-free, lemming-like marines? This is my attempt to avoid those tedious stereotypes.

At The Inn reviews
Inquisitor Sezaria should keep a closer eye on her prisoners - but that may be the least of their problems. I'm not sure where this is going - but rather than sit on it, here it is! Note that this doesn't replace The Misfits...

Under New Management reviews
A Chaotic cult has managed to survive without detection or destruction - but their nominal allies could be as much bad news as their enemies. An attempt to do something actually interesting with Chaos Cultists...

Spirit of the Machine reviews
A Techpriest encounters the Thousand Sons Chaos Marines, who seem to want something from him. But what, and why? About 1600 words long, so quite short!
