Robert B Appleton

A native of Bolton, England, I write mainly science fiction and paranormal mysteries. Readers will often find themselves in atmospheric settings - past or future - where human survival plays an instrumental role. 

My eBooks include The Eleven-Hour Fall (a sci-fi adventure trilogy) at Eternal Press, Cafe at the Edge of Outer Space, and Charlie Runs Rings Around the Earth. I also write the imaginative Esther May Morrow paranormal series as Arthur Everest.
