Hi, I’m Simon, and I write Messages
We will probably never meet, but if I do my job right, you will see the things that I see and hear what I hear. Stephen King calls it telepathy. Most of my messages are written, but some might be video or audio recordings: we’ll see – or hear.
Message – Speculative Fiction
I write speculative fiction. I say ‘speculative fiction’, rather than ‘science fiction’ because the science is not always the focus, not always to the fore or in your face. Mostly it’s working away in the background, driving the plot inevitably forwards, forming the character of the world that the actors inhabit. “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players” he said, and he knew; I merely speculate. Sometimes my speculations seem like science fiction, or fantasy and sometimes more like a future history, heavy with doom. I love to turn a drama into a crisis!
Message – Safety Engineering
On weekdays, I am a consultant and a system safety engineer. I’ve spent a long time learning my trade and putting it to the best uses that I can, and I’m formulating my experience for the benefit of others.
I am boiling down all that learning and practice into some educational products for the benefit of others, and the result is The Safety Artisan!
Best Regards, Simon
