The Prophecy (Peace Child Book 1) by Gill James

Kaleem Malkendy is different – and on Terrestra, different is no way to be.
Everything about Kaleem marks him out form the rest: the blond hair and dark skin, the uncomfortable cave where he lives and the fact that he doesn’t know his father. He’s used to unwelcome attention, but even so he’d feel better if some strange old man didn’t keep following him around.
That man introduces himself and begins to explain the Babel Prophecy – and everything in Kaleem’s life...


Babel (Peace Child Book 2) by Gill James

Kaleem has found his father and soon finds the love of his life, Rozia Laurence, but he is still not comfortable with his role as Peace Child. He also has to face some of the less palatable truths about his home planet: it is blighted by the existence of the Z Zone, a place where poorer people live outside of society, and by switchoff, compulsory euthanasia for a healthy but aging population, including his mentor, Razjosh.
The Babel Tower still haunts him, but it begins to make sense as...

January Stones 2013 by Gill James

These stories were written one a day throughout January 2013. They were originally published on a blog called "Gill’s January Stones". In fact, they were published in reverse order. The first one you read here, "When Physics Got Sick", was the last one to be written and originally published on 31 January 2016.
Sometimes the stories would come right at the beginning of the day. Sometimes they would take a while longer.
Do they have a theme? Not really, though the idea of ‘stones’...
