Official Press Release – It’s All In the Mind – Aileen – Bill Shanks

Bill Shanks - IAITMAIt’s All In The Mind – Aileen: UK Author Breaks New Sci-Fi Ground with Warfare-less, Out-of-this-World Fishing Trip Novel!

 Bill Shanks has long loved everything about Science Fiction, but grew tired of books that only focused on warfare and violence. Inspired to break the mould, Shanks has produced a light-hearted and highly-engrossing novel that sees one man seek solace from a runaway wife by spending the night fishing. But that’s when the story stops being normal…

Contact: Here


United Kingdom – While millions live for Sci-Fi, many critics blame the genre for its over-reliance on violence, war and the over-done battles between good and evil. Bill Shanks shared these frustrations and, with no trend-bucking novels in sight, he set out to create his own.

The result is ‘It’s All In The Mind – Aileen’, which is based around…well…a fishing trip! But don’t get confused, the narrative still boasts everything that makes Science Fiction great, just with a new twist that only Shanks could have thought up.


Rab is a middle aged, and successful design engineer, but at home he is rather spoilt by his beautiful and competent wife, who governs all things domestic. When Liz appears to have done a runner, Rab childishly follows suit by embarking, alone, on an overnight, albeit illegal, fishing trip to the world famous River Tweed, in the Scottish Borders Region.

There he encounters an unseen alien, who appears to commandeer every aspect of his life, setting him unannounced tests, but at the same time guiding him through them.

“You don’t see too many Sci-Fi novels that bring aliens to Earth for reasons other than overthrowing humanity or looking to infect the planet with some kind of destructive parasite. These mundane recycled concepts get a bit tiresome,” explains Shanks. “This story is almost innocent in its premise and hugely-entertaining in how it plays out. There isn’t one drop of blood, threat of violence or attempt to take over the planet – just a pragmatic and controlling alien who likes to dominate!”

Continuing, “It’s a fairly short read at just over two-hundred pages, again going against the grain of thousand-page-plus novels that spin readers around and around in the same direction with little originality. This is perfect for the commute to work or that weekend when it’s too rainy to go fishing. When you do get back out there…watch out for that alien!”

Shanks is aware that the market may take a while to warm to his style, but it’ a change he believes the Sci-Fi community will welcome.

“I know that others are crying out for wholly-unique new stories so, while my work doesn’t initially appear to fit the grand design of Science Fiction, over time it will certainly be breathing the fresh air people are looking to embrace,” he adds.
