Sci-Ence! Justice Leak!


I’ve written five books and some short fiction so far, with more to come. All ebook versions of my books are DRM-free.

The Beatles In Mono
Beatles In Mono cover In The Beatles In Mono, Andrew Hickey examines, track by track, the Beatles’ work as it was originally created, in mono. Going through the 2009 The Beatles In Mono box set, he looks at the band’s influences, their musical techniques, and the progression of their career from Love Me Do through to Get Back. As a bonus, this edition also contains appendices giving brief overviews of the stereo-only material the band recorded, as well as ‘non-canon’ albums like the Anthology series, Live At The BBC and Liverpool Sound Collage. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

Sci-Ence! Justice Leak!

Cover to Sci-Ence! Justice Leak!What do Batman, Doctor Who, quantum physics, Oscar Wilde, liberalism, the second law of thermodynamics, Harry Potter fanfic, postmodernism, and Superman have in common? If your answer to that was “Nothing” then… well, you’re probably right. But in this book Andrew Hickey will try to convince you otherwise. In doing so he’ll take you through:

How to escape from a black hole and when you might not want to
The scientist who thinks he’s proved the existence of heaven and what that has to do with Batman
What to do if you discover you’re a comic-book character
Whether killing your own grandfather is really a bad idea
And how to escape from The Life Trap!

An examination of the comics of Grant Morrison, Alan Moore and Jack Kirby, Doctor Who spin-off media, and how we tell stories to each other, Sci-Ence! Justice Leak! tells you to look around you and say:

“This is an imaginary universe… Aren’t they all?”
