I'm Simon Haynes.
Welcome to
Spacejock Software

On this site you'll find my free software including favourites like yWriter, yBook, FCharts and more.

Are you looking for a freelance programmer? I occasionally take on additional projects, conversions, etc.

I'm also an author, with five sf comedy novels in print (details, Kindle) and a junior science fiction series for ages 8+ (details, Kindle).

I think they call that multitasking. I call it a lot of work.


Why Free?

Normally you'd view the book on a larger page than this, I've reduced it to the minimum so the screen shots don't take ages to download. This is a single page view with plain paper and justified san-serif text:

Next up is another view of yBook in single page mode. (While reading a book, you can press 1 and 2 to change between the two modes):

In this shot yBook has been configured by a texta-wielding, psychadelic 60's child. Ok, it's not that bad but I don't think I could read a book like this for long:

Super-large print


This is the yBook printing interface. I wrote this to print copies of Gutenberg novels on a duplex laser printer. They come out two-up and ready for cropping and binding.

Printing features


This is the Gutenberg downloader. It will retrieve the latest catalogue from Project Gutenberg, turn it into a searchable list of books with titles and authors, and allow you to download and read any of their works with a couple of mouse clicks:
