Dale Harker

Left on Earth by the mother-ship in 1962. While awaiting the return of my people I amuse myself writing sci-if, horror and fantasy fiction. First full length novel ‘The Farmer,’ published in November 2015, a slice of heroic sci-if/fantasy which has been favourably reviewed so far by an exclusively human audience. My daughter’s partner, Daniel Wheatley provides the excellent covers. My daughter herself provides stringent critique. I’m going to miss them when I eventually leave your planet.
