Dispatch from the Razor's Edge, the Blog of Michael Stephen Fuchs
Secret History 2, Electric Boogaloo
Plus Last Two E-Story (Covers)

So I got such a good reaction (well, okay, I got some reaction) to my experiment of publishing the actual browsing history of a writer of high-tech, special forces, nuclear terror action thrillers (original list, plus more details here), that I've gone and done it again, for the other machine I mainly used for work on the book.

But first! here are the very last two short stories that I amused myself by doodling covers for. (If you missed the earlier ones, the first three are here, four more here.) Since Amazon's crap book cover image reduction algorithm has been making mincemeat out of the nice, clean, bold font I used ("Impact"), I've now switched to the ugliest, messiest, jaggiest font I own ("28 Days Later"). Bicubically resample that, Bezos.

Okay, now here's that second harrowing browsing history. (*) I've really worked harder on only keeping the thrilling/horrifying stuff, plus making it easier to read. In any case, whatever internet terror watch lists I wasn't on before, I'm definitely on now. (Check out some of those Google searches, e.g. "how to get radiological material for dirty bombs"!) And now so are you for reading it! (*)

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
