Update from Andy West

The Outcast And The Little One

Cover art by Sophia McDougall

In a distant future, human form has diversified into several races that are very different from the Elten – the original humans. On a largely tamed Venus, two such races struggle for survival and supremacy. The robotic, pacifist Aumons find themselves ever more suppressed by the exuberant, vital and exotic Clonir. But Arkhend, a new arrival at the Aumon’s Southern Arc, has first-hand experience of their enemy and is determined that the Brotherhood should not sink quietly into extinction but rather rouse themselves in defiance of the Clonir before it’s too late…

One of science fictions most exciting new voices, Andy West was runner up (along with Nina Allan) in the BSFA’s short story competition a couple of years ago. He has gone on to have short fiction published in a number of webzines and anthologies, including NewCon Press’ disLOCATIONS (2007) and Fables from the Fountain (2011), and we are now proud to present this, his debut novel.

The Outcast and the Little One is available as a special signed hardback edition, limited to just 50 copies, and as an A5 paperback.

Launched April 6th, 2012. 256 pages.

Signed Limited Edition Hardback: £19.99
Paperback: £9.99

Digital version available at Amazon (kindle) and Smashwords (various formats) for £2 / $3

  1. Hi, Will here. I'm moving up to the area shortly and have been looking for a writing group to get involved with. Looking around this site I can see you've got some cracking work going on, be alright to come along to one of your meets at some point? I do a fair amount of writing across a couple of genres. Haven't made a serious push for getting anything published yet but am intending to. Can send some work if that's useful. Anyway you can reach me on wgmilner(at) Look forward to hearing from you.

    Cheers, Will
