I've been writing for 30 years or more, ever since it seemed like realistic alternate history to have Roy Jenkins as Prime Minister of an SDP-governed Britain.
I've been a poet for 25 years, and recently published my retrospective anthology, Phoenix, covering this whole period.
A lot of what I wrote in the 1980s and 1990s was fantasy or science fiction, and of this corpus I published the novel Beholder this Summer.
Most of my more recent works have been in the genre of Alternate History, and I have published a series of essays for aspiring AH writers (How To Write Alternate History), two short stories and a collection of shorts, flash stories and faux articles as Vignettes in Alternate History.
I live near Swansea in Wales, UK, but count among my homes such places as Peterborough (where I lived for a long time) and Durness (which caught my heart on a visit)
Britain has fallen, the Nazi jackboot strides the land. But resistance still holds, and a shaky front in the far North continues to reist every German effort. Such is the starting point for The Wolf in Britain, first of the four short stories that make up this series.
Follow the global plot development through A Big Boy Visits Hamburg to Götterdämmerung itself, the Twilight of the Nazis.
The story continues in The Fuhrer Legacy, of a German Reich occupied by the Americans, Israeli anti-Nazi hunters, Soviet troops on the border, and underneath the surface the stirrings of a revivalist movement.
How To Write Alternate History
How to, alternate history
Grey Wolf's articles on how to write alternate history, including what to look out for, considerations to bear in mind, and ideas for progression.
The articles cover a wide range of related subjects, such as creating small but noticeable changes in things like the brand names which are popular, the activities which are to be found at the local pub, or the names of sports teams.
Developing Points of Departure (Divergence) and realistic alternatives in areas such as music, sport and dynastic marriages are also covered.
The Mailed Fist
Set in an alternate reality where mankind has parcelled up the world into several empires and begun to venture into space, our hero works in a publishing firm, he frequents pubs that play live music, and the love of his life is a fast and loose girl called Sophie.
Normal life begins to take a turn for the worse when an alien artifact approaches the Moon bases of the major Earth empires, and then begins to approach the Earth.
To Deliver The Future
With the Second World War having ended in a draw, a Nazi-American Cold War has set in, but now both sides believe they have the ultimate secret weapon, only it requires one of them to strike first! From the frozen fjords of Norway to the very banks of the Potomac, from the docks of New York City to Hitler's mountain fastness, the action sees Nazi Germany take the ultimate gamble.
Time of The Darkness
Time of The Darkness is a centuries-spanning novel by Grey Wolf, starting as Alternate History in the nineteenth century and by the time of fourth millennium extending into galactic science-fiction.
Follow the ruling families as they pass through multiple generations, always struggling with the problems of their age, while continuing the family legacy, and passing it on to the next generation.
As humanity spreads further into space, they come up against and interact with friendly aliens, and those less friendly, until eventually an ancient evil is revived, and the Time of the Darkness has come again.
