The most recent publications are the science fiction adventure romp, The Slayer, and the forthcoming poetry anthology, Farflame.Grey Wolf is also the Editor of literary and artistic e-magazine, Innovate, released monthly from January 2014, and put together by a team of six creative people from around the world.

Well, this book is unlike anything I have read before. It had a very black humour, but is essentially a sci-fi thriller short. I once attended a film showing at the Tate presented by Mark Kermode and he introduced the film by saying that it “Started hysterical and went up from that.” I would say that The Mailed Fist ‘Starts frantic and goes up from that.’ Its main plot revolves around the invasion of Earth by alien ‘drone,’ which prove almost indestructible. But the action seems to take place mostly in a small village somewhere in the UK. I loved the action, intelligent plot and the humour. I particularly loved the witty play on words and references to the French Monarchy and the Emperor of the United Kingdom. This story doesn’t just play with images, it plays with ideas about the future political make-up of the World. A stand out phrase which made me belly-laugh was the ‘A shoot for Cor Blimey magazine,’ echoing the tasteless pap that is served up by some of today’s gossip rags. If you like the idea of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy on steroids, I recommend this. A great, fast read.
