Halley’s Casino is set in 1986. 26-year old Nebula Yorker (Neb to his friends), is patiently awaiting the return of Halley’s Comet. He is about to discover that the world is not what it seems.
Upon the arrival of Halley’s Comet, Neb is confronted by a mysterious stranger who literally swoops out of the night sky. What happens next will change the course of Neb’s life and that of all he befriends.
This stranger (Mr. Tict) reveals to Neb that Halley’s is not a comet at all, but an Intergalactic Casino that has been posing as a comet for countless years. Mr. Tict is the Concierge of the Casino and he has come back to Earth to recruit Neb as his assistant.
What happens next is an eye-opening experience for young Neb that no one on Earth can imagine. It can only be explained by watching old Star Trek reruns, while eating cheese sandwiches and drinking hot chocolate. From androids with attitude to a vast assortment of alien beings and historic individuals, with a touch of time travel from ancient Babylon to 1757 London and back to Rome of 12 BCE, Neb soon learns that his past, present and future have always lain in the stars above.
It’s a rock and roll ride chock full of chaos, a formidable nemesis, drama, satire, humour, death and new beginnings, with revelations that Neb never saw coming.
Even John Lennon is amused!
Starting out on a quiet evening of star gazing, Nebula Yorker finds himself caught up in the most extraordinary time travel and planet saving adventure of a lifetime.
And that’s only the beginning of what is to come.

Guest Post with Mark JG Fahey
Is Star Trek what everyone think it is?
I grew up on Star Trek as many others and thus has inspired me as many others
to boldly go as it were, as many others.
Halley's Casino incorporates Star Trek lore but not in the way you may think (spoilers).
The idea of universal intergalactic brotherhood is a large part of Star Trek, to explore
strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to give and take, to learn
from one another in peace.
Yet those nasty Klingon's and Romulan's have different take on that.
Even Earth bound individuals have had world domination on their minds from time to time
throughout human history, who needs outer space.
But what if, one could have both? Wouldn't you want to stop them?
What if you could change time and history to suit this diabolical plan?
And if you could stop a madman from fulfilling his manic endeavour as our
hero of Halley's Casino, one Nebula Yorker Neb to his friends.
Can he? Will he? (spoilers)
Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica , Flash Gordon, Dr. Who, the list can go on and on.
One man. One ship, One people, One alien against the odds.
Have I stirred the Sci fi inside you? Do you at to know more?
Halley's Casino if a fun and witty ride full of androids with attitude, satire, drama, love and loss
rock n roll and that's only the beginning or is it the end?
John Lennon seem to know what going on...
