I don't log in everyday, but drop in every few weeks to see what's new. Thanks to the unwavering support of my friends and fellow members on here, my debut novel SHINING DAWN made #1 on the Editor's Desk in February 2012. It gives me great pleasure in saying that the book has now been published by Jufic Books (www.leadstartcorp.com) and is available on Amazon.com and a host of other sites. Here's the link:


HALLOWED ROCK, a loose sequel to Shining Dawn, is a stand-alone story of mystery and horror set in a post-apocalyptic Earth. It is a work in progress. Please feel free to support it in whichever way you deem worthy. I'll be more than happy to return the read.

Hallowed Rock

A. G. Chaudhuri

Sci-fi mystery based in a post-apocalyptic alternate reality.
In a world built on lies, the truth can be stranger than faith.

Sixty years after the cataclysmic events of the ‘Purge’, survivors have found refuge on the last remaining stable landmass on Earth. Under the aegis of the Revivalist Church, life in Sacred Haven is simple and unsullied, devoted to the worship of the Divine Mother.

But, as people strive to restore civilisation, they are faced with an unknown sinister force that threatens to devour their regimented theocratic community. Their fate rests in the unlikely hands of two men; one, a believer and conformist, the other, a rebel and sworn agnostic; one, on a mission to save all that he holds dear and the other, in search of vengeance. Together, they embark on a journey that will shake the very foundations of the new world order and take them deep into the heart of a dark and heinous truth.

On the Hallowed Rock, a secluded island feared and revered as the earthly abode of the Divine Mother, they will learn the true nature and purpose of the mysterious entity that plagues their world.

Shining Dawn

A. G. Chaudhuri

An amnesiac physicist. A clandestine experiment. A self-proclaimed saviour. And a gifted child. Together, they hold the answer to a mystery older than time.

The world is on its last legs. Civilisation has reached the pinnacle of progress but its foundations have been corroded by a race steeped in arrogance, greed and corruption. Amidst threats of global ecological catastrophes and warfare over the planet’s limited resources, mankind marches towards an unknown end.

As the world reels on the brink of chaos, disgraced physicist Zach Walker strives to rebuild his life from scratch and uncover his forgotten past. A condition called Lacunar Amnesia has robbed him of the memories of the last five years of his life. Having served jail-term for a crime he cannot recall, he lives in agony, taking each day as it comes. But unknown to him, there are powerful forces at work against him.

A mysterious rendezvous quickly turns into a fierce battle for survival as Zach finds himself hunted by corrupt lawmen and a savage animalistic killer. Led by clues left by his deceased friend and mentor Dr Avinash Arya and aided by a shadowy organisation, he soon realises that his obscure past may be inextricably linked to the fate of the entire planet, and that his lost memories may also hold the key to a bizarre and terrifying secret...

Dear Sam, DAX is a cool chap. And, his equation with his dad is endearing and touches the heart. That thing he did with his dad’s wallet was lovely and I loved the way you described their resemblance to each other when they stood at the end of the queue, smiling in each other’s eyes. And then, his ... view book

Dear Sam, Thanks a lot for commenting on my book. I'm so happy that you liked it. A small edit is underway (e.g. Batista is now called Barka :-) ) and I'll tell you once I post it here. You've raised some good points and I only see it as right that I answer them. You see, Barka (Batista) is just a ... view book

Dear Hock, I enjoyed reading the first chapter of AGAMEMNON MUST DIE. Being a little pressed for time, I've watchlisted your book and will go back for more later.
