was first written, in a slightly different form of this book. It was devised as the first in a series for a developing science fiction website.
Alas, the website never came to fruition and poor old Mike languished, rusting away in the archival wastelands of my computer for a couple of years.
I have now dusted Mike down, refurbished and polished him, re-written much and edited more.
Mechanical Mike gave me a lot of enjoyment while I was creating this story.
I have since ventured into writing a few more tales in the realms of sci-fi.
Mechanical Mike is a fun tale, a modern pulp fictional story of robotics, a private eye, a mad scientist, Nazi-occupied France and undying love for a beautiful blond woman.
