A comedy based in the 22nd century.

Axiom2, the future evolutionary version of the International Space Station is in peril, as are the crew, due to innocuous components failure.

Unfortunately, these parts are redundant in the 22nd century.

This problems kickstarts a race to find someone, somewhere who has the necessary parts, as manufacturing or bypassing is not an option in the allotted time.

A farce begins as a professor from mission control, agents from a rival company (seeking to gain control of space exploration) and the secretary to the Prime Minister start their race against time.

Insider knowledge, underhand tactics, travelling across the Atlantic on the Hyper Highway Express Service, all to track down the essentials.

Lunacy is the word, and lunacy it truly is.

M.L. Bladd remembers a remark from his junior school teacher telling him that he enjoyed reading his stories from creative writing lessons but could he make them shorter so that he had a chance to read the other children’s pieces.


MLB, for as long as he has known, enjoyed making up stories. Although not following this through in his education, he actually went on to achieve a BA (Hons) degree majoring in history and then on to earn a post-graduate diploma in radio production and writing for the media.


MLB resides in North West London and continues to work full-time as a manager in a retail environment, taking some inspiration from the people he interacts with on a daily basis and the loved ones he has around him. MLB has a thirst for knowledge and even attempts to persuade people when they are trying to tell him something to turn it into a question.


The debut novel, Arena: End of an Era, was influenced by being challenged by a work colleague and also due to a challenging time within M.L. Bladd’s own life.


Outside of writing and the people he cares about, M.L. Bladd says his loves are ‘Reading, quizzes, nearly all sports and sandwiches’.
