Hi, I’m Phillip

I am a Science Fiction author, Comedian, and Lego artist.

My goal here is to write stories which are mind-bending, funny, and accessible. This philosophy extends to how I structure books and series. Even if two books share a universe, you can usually read them in any order.

Like many authors, I’m not so good at bragging about how indescribably brilliant and handsome I am, so here is a snippit from a review of my debut book WHO BUILT THE HUMANS?


Phillip also infuses the book with an acerbic devastatingly acidic wit compounded with a bone dry sense of humour. The author’s obvious intelligence shines through in both the creative imagination and the beauty of the language […] This is not a by-the-numbers or trope-driven book following some predetermined and predictable formula but rather an exercise in intellectual science-fiction […] I definitely look forward to reading more by Phillip and highly recommend this to any reader wanting more than genre written pulp.

And my free stories here are almost as good as WBTH.

What to expect in this free newsletter

  • Free subscribers on this newsletter will always get at least one free short story or chapter per month. If a story is quite long, it might be posted in parts, usually on a Monday or Friday.

  • Free subscribers can also find Guest Stories, which are quite rare, as I only post them once I find someone whose style clicks well with my own.

  • The Phillip Carter Show. This is my comedy podcast. Think of a mix of the Graham Norton show and a panel show. I interview authors and other people, tell jokes, and encourage them to give weird answers to weird questions.

  • Comedy. The zanier stuff is an optional add-on, but any Sci-Fi comedy is built-in to your regular free subscription.
