Hi there, welcome to my website. My name is Craig Lea Gordon, and I am a science fiction writer from Whitley Bay in the United Kingdom. I am married with two kids, and have a bouncy Cocker Spaniel called Purdy. I work full-time as a Business Analyst but all my spare time is taken up with writing. My current goal is to be able to write full-time. That would be a dream come true!

What kind of stuff do you write?

More than anything, I love creating stories that offer terrifying glimpses into a possible future. Technology features heavily in all my work, and asks questions about how it will affect our lives. For the better? Or for the worse?

How many books do you have?

I have two short works available at the moment. Transmit is available now as a thank you for signing up to my mailing list. And Hypercage is now available to download for free across most stores.

Hypercage is the prequel to my upcoming Instant Reality cyberpunk series. It clocks in at around ten thousand words, and will take about forty five minutes to read…

You can’t resist the demands of the voice.

Jacked into the construct and primed for combat, Pterax is on a desperate mission to save his capital ship. On his approach to the enemy Dreadnought, the familiar and commanding voice returns. Can he resist its demands and complete his mission, or will he succumb to its bidding and doom them all?

Transmit is a stand alone short story. It’s much shorter at just under 3,000 words, and will probably take around 15 minutes to read…

Her death was just the start of her journey.

In seven hours Grace Jordan will be dead. Join one woman as she abandons her family in a bid to save humanity, and embarks on an epic odyssey into the unknown.

Feedback from readers

Hypercage and Transmit were such good reads that if your full-length novel was out right now I would buy it. And I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Hypercage… The action scenes are really tense, and the descriptions are excellent. When it’s gripping, it’s really gripping, and the world you’ve managed to build in such few places is dark and vivid. Great stuff!

Hypercage… You have created a modern day Orwellian dystopian fiction which is really unique. I’ve never seen this before.

Transmit… It’s a page-turner. I was hooked right away when I read the first line and just breezed through. The plot unraveled at an enticing pace, I was very excited to find out what was going on. The writing is top notch, a real pleasure to read.

Transmit… For such a short story you did a great job establishing an emotional connection to the main character.

What should I read first?

If you want a quick taster, and enjoy journeys into the unknown, then you could start with my free short story Transmit.
