      Rob is a software engineering professional who pays his bills by building computer forensic and information security products.In 2013 Rob added the writing of short science fiction stories to his already long list of interests that includes nutritional science, applied mathematics, anthropology, power lifting and public speaking on geeky subjects.Rob s first two shorts are an homage to the memory of his father who entertained let s say rather SciFi ideas about the origin of man During a 6 week stay in west Africa, the soaring heat combined with the tiny ants that kept infesting his apartment and local customs helped Rob find the inspiration for turning what he remembered from his father s wild theories into a coherent SciFi story Since then Rob has continued to work on a series of shorts with related subjects that he hopes to one day release as a printed bundle While Rob loves both technology and his e books, he feels a big draw to the idea of holding a self published book in his hands and feeling and even smelling the reality of it His ultimate goal is thus to self publish a bundle of seven shorts that he can hold in his hands and smell

    • Every now and then you meet a book that’s hard to rate on the one to five star scale. This is one of them. In the end I settled on four, because I liked the ideas the story presented. It has a solid plot and plenty of imaginative ideas. It’s like a mind-altered infusion of out-there sci-fi with a David Attenborough documentary. Examples well, the story centres on genetically engineered ant-monkeys, breaking the bonds of slavery, in a galaxy far away need I say more? Perhaps, but I won’t be [...]


    • Ant-monkeys are a bio-engineered slave race, a genetic combination of ants and apes. The scene is a far away star system called Orus, set in an undefined time zone. Due to a flaw in the ant-monkey's genetic imprint, they rebel, killing tens of thousands of Orussians, which results in the ant-monkey's breeding plants being quarantined. A pet ant-monkey escapes, forms a new breed, and joins forces with an outcast group of society called the Dammons. The outcome is an almighty battle and a complete [...]


    • This sci-fi story about genetic engineering was interesting. About half way through I started to wonder where the “hybrids” would end up and whether the story was in the past or future. My one criticism of this book is that I found the writing very dense, it read like a distillation of a novel into ten thousand words.


    • Let me start off by stating that I know the author personally, so if you think that disqualifies me from giving an objective review, please stop reading here and ignore this review. After having read Atheist Afterlife by this same author first, I was a tiny bit disappointed by the 'safe' approach taken in this novelette. Nothing really controversial about this one (unless possibly to hard-core creationists), and that's a bit of a shame.Orussian Quarantine has some brilliant reverences to astrono [...]


    • I normally don't read English books but I read this one as a favor to the author prior to its release. In fact, I had the author reading most of it aloud to me. The story seems like its two stories in one. At one level its a real nerdy science fiction story about a series of terrible events in a star system related to genetic manipulation. When you start reading you feel that the story is set in the far future. While reading it however, you slowly discover that you have to readjust your frame of [...]


    • Epic tale of genetic engineeringIt tells of a the gradual collapse of a planetary system. We get a series of events that give us glimpses into the big story. A genetic engineer, a terraformer and a fallen rebel all take turns to give us their viewpoints.It is a demanding read due to the density of the explanation. It works well if you think of it as a set of testimonies within a historical text. The world-building is good and I would have liked to read more.You will recognise the story and the c [...]


    • World BuildingA lot of potential in this one. Unfortunately, Rob wasn’t able to deliver on that potential. This is a short story, and he’s trying to develop 3 (4? 5?) planets with wildly different eco systems and political structures. As the tale unfolds, there’s even more chaos introduced without adequate development, leaving the reader lost and wondering where this bit of information came from, or how it fits into the bigger picture.Most of the story focuses on the Orus system, with smal [...]
