#67 - Noctis Point, Chapter 1

The explosion tore through the glass-fronted communications building, blasting people on the pavement in all directions. A few metres away, Alex looked up and had enough time to see the cloud of dust and fire burst out through the doors before the shockwave lifted him up and threw him across the street. Glass shattered, cars squealed to a halt, and the screaming began...

Earth, 2154. As the alien Spiders, together with human allies, assault a communications centre in the heart of London, 15-year-old Alexander Deere finds himself caught between them and the elite psychics of the Psy-Ops force.

This year, Pocket Fiction will be host to the entire run of my novel Noctis Point. Each episode will be produced sequentially, taking me through to September. Coinciding with this, I will be releasing Noctis Point later in the year as a Kindle book. 

Please, if you have a few minutes to spare, leave a review at the iTunes store! Every review helps! You can leave a review by viewing the podcast in iTunes itself, and clicking on Ratings and Reviews.

Even though I'm serialising Noctis Point, Pocket Fiction is always looking for submissions! If you're an author, or you know an author, and you have a piece of fiction you would like to hear in the weekly podcast, drop me a line!

Each track is also available as a podcast through the iTunes store; on Tumblr; and on YouTube
