The first collection of DJ Burnham's short stories

(6 of which are new and previously unpublished)

A young man's inheritance takes him on a road trip across the
surface of Mars…

An intergalactic travel agency spots an opportunity for a new
holiday destination…

Alien evangelists assess Earth for spiritual uniformity…

A green-fingered mystery man vanishes, leaving a trail of clues
on a futuristic Internet auction site…

An extra-terrestrial celebrity chef planet-hops from one
gastronomic experience to another…

These and many more are to be found in the first collection of
stories from DJ Burnham

All of the profits from the sale of the book will go to WWF .


What they say:


"…reminiscent of the best sci-fi short stories written in the nineteen fifties and sixties…
… If you read as much as I do you often get a feel for where the story is taking you and often get to the twist before the author does, but Borrowed Time had me guessing right to the end…"

Charles Packer, Sci-fi Online

"For a first collection, there is a very high hit ratio of really good stories. He makes his characters and story the focus of his writing, letting the ideas be a tool for the telling, rather than focus the story on the scientific idea ‚ which makes a nice change from many other short science fiction stories Iíve read."

Rob Spalding, Whispers of Wickedness

"Each story in this collection is a mini- masterpiece; there is no better way than describing them. That is by no means an exaggeration. What DJ does with such precision is describe each detail so vividly and exactly that he draws you- seemingly without effort- in to his warped wonderful world. This is, quite simply put, a must have book."

– PS Gifford


“If I had a stable of DJ Burnhams, I could retire early. Burnham's work is immensely rewarding – deep, rich characterization and setting constructed over frameworks that could effortlessly translate into longer forms. He respects the reader – no hand-holding here, just an intelligent, thoughtful and thought provoking writing practice. His work often leaves the reader wanting more, just as it should be. Burnham commands the worlds he forges, realms where the potential for wry humor is just as likely as the simmering undercurrent of tension and fear that is perhaps his forte. His is a talent to which all writers of sf should aspire: classic, dignified, and undeniably fresh in its subtle confrontation of modernity. Burnham is one of the finest writers with whom I've had the pleasure to work, and I can only hope that he does not soon put down the pen.”

– Paul Hughes, executive editor of Silverthought


"An unorthodox style that works well."

– Bewildering Stories
