Rewind is a unique media project started in memory of my father, who lost his battle with prostate cancer in late 2011, and my mother who died of a brain tumour when I was a child. The original script is designed to appeal to a wide audience - a dystopian Sci-Fi comedy thriller which aims to have you on the edge of your seat until you fall off laughing!

Ultimately, I hope to be able to bring Rewind to the attention of the media and to build a following within the Sci-Fi community. There will be a trilogy of script books, as well as novelisations and further merchandise to be announced (comic book?), and at the moment I am busy working on both the second book and a full length retro style interactive novel for PC/Mac and Mobile, based on the first book in the series.

Whether you like your Sci-Fi dark and exciting or light and parodic, there's something for you in Rewind.


My name is Simon Burford, and I am the writer and creator of the Rewind project. I'm really just an average Joe, and have spent my life working to earn a crust and my spare time writing, programming adventure gamebooks, travelling and blogging. You can read my travel blogs over at, where I am reposting the best bits, or you can follow my photofeed on Twitter by adding @BurfordsWorld


The Rewind Project is funded through sales of my books and software, which you can find over in the Other Projects & Shop section here. If you'd like to support the project and help it move forward, please consider stopping by the shop and picking up a copy of the first Rewind scriptbook either in paperback or as an eBook, or anything else that takes your fancy! I also intend to give a donation to Cancer Research UK from every copy of Rewind sold, in memory of my parents, but I can only do that with your help.

If you would like to give a donation directly to Cancer Research UK without making a purchase, please also consider clicking the "Just Giving" box at the bottom of any page on this site.
