Ed Charlton  – Biography and Contact Details

Ed Charlton grew up in England. After many years toiling in corporate data systems, he followed his true calling: books and writing. Since 2005, Ed has supplied services to indie authors through his company Scribbulations LLC and writes constantly.

In 1963, Ed was part of the original target demographic for Doctor Who, long before society realized the effect of sci-fi on the young. As an adult, he has a reputation for asking, in the middle of long BBC dramas, “When do the aliens land?”

He is a member of the Science Fiction Association of Bergen County, NJ, and the founder of The Write Group: Kennett Square.

Ed writes science fiction in the classic mold–with humor and intelligence.

Books

The Able Serial (Kindle Only)

 

• Editors: Margaret Gautz, Grace Spampinato

Subject
• Science Fiction > Metaphysical & Visionary
• Science Fiction > First Contact
• Kindle Short Reads > Two hours or more (65-100 pages) > Science Fiction & Fantasy

Summary

Each First Contact is tricky; there’s a lot of money at stake

So it’s odd when an alien from a new race really doesn’t want to make contact at all—much preferring to quietly go shopping. Jim Able has to find out who this alien calling himself “Edward of Turcania” really is.

Jim enlists the help of Turcanian professor and TV personality, Madhar Nect. She introduces him to the divisive religious minority that Edward, whose real name is Sopha, belongs to.

Jim lies to secure his interview with the elusive Sopha. Though they connect through a powerful religious ceremony, Sopha is the one person he should never have lied to.

Can Jim still seize success from his rapidly failing mission?

What price will he, and the people of TMV-II, pay for his deception as the deep societal fractures of this world erupt?

Jim Able: Offworld is a series short reads of 10 to 15K words. This sometimes humorous, sometimes deep adventure begins with four episodes starting with ABLE

Ed: Books are wonderful but they always have to end – usually within a few hundred pages! I needed more room. Remember the days of Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers? For all their faults, the writers never had to worry about wrapping it all up by the end. They always had a new cliffhanger and a new adventure waiting in the next episode.

My goal with Jim Able: Offworld is to keep the adventure going. Welcome along!

Note
Print editions will collect up to four episodes as a single book.

Target Audience

People who like Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the Star Wars and/or Star Trek franchises will enjoy these books.

The Aleronde Trilogy

• Editors: Lisa Romeo, Margaret Gautz, Grace Spampinato

Subject
• Science Fiction > First Contact
• Science Fiction > Alien Invasion
• Literature & Fiction > Action & Adventure > Science Fiction

Summary
The Problem with Uncle Teddy’s Memoir is sci-fi of a different kind.

“I write at a distance, of course. How far? How far?”

Teddy’s tales of a cruel alien empire and the city of Aleronde plunge two friends into a mystery.

By sending his Uncle Teddy’s memoir to publisher Curt Bookman, Theo Kingman stirs up puzzling memories—memories Curt has shared with no one.

Can Aleronde be real? If so, Earth is in danger from its massive space fleet.

Can Curt acknowledge the past and save Earth’s future?

Letters, emails, and office notes surround the pages of Uncle Teddy’s manuscript to build a tale of empire, slavery, and betrayal in this first book of The Aleronde Trilogy.

The trilogy continues with Saint John’s Ambulatory and concludes in Aleronde the Great.

 

Ed: This is a book definitely read best in print; the look of every page is part of the story! Technically, it is an epistolary novella–a story told through letters, notes, e-mails, and manuscript pages–something rare in sci-fi.

The characters will stay with you in a different way, because they are always writing in their own voices. And you’ll remember the mysterious, magnificent, terrible place called Aleronde.

Physically, the book stands out from homogenized sci-fi stock because of its unusual format: 8.5×11 inches.

You’ll find this a memorable read and a tactile and visual experience, complete with coffee stains. You know…like reading used to be!

Target Audience
People who like Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and the Star Wars and/or Star Trek franchises will enjoy this book. In addition, it will appeal to readers who enjoy the (semi)-realism of epistolary novels.
