Prompted by the BSFA award nomination, the very lovely people over at Spacewitch (and Amazon) are offering the ebook edition of The Moon King at a ridiculously low price. £1.99 – That’s literally as cheap as chips in many places these days. And if your preference is for paper books, Spacewitch are dropping the paperback price […]

Douglas Thompson and me : Scottish Writers Centre

August 26, 2014

One of the jewels in my already pretty sparkly and jam-packed full Worldcon (seriously it was like a Smaug’s hoard of good stuff), was bumping into fellow Glasgow-writer Douglas Thompson just before he launched his new novel, The Rhymer.

Time for another tranche of the various cultural pies I’ve been chowing into recently. All heartily recommended. Book: The Race by Nina Allan. I’ve been enjoying Nina Allan’s sharp, insightful and beautiful stories since I first encountered Microcosmos in the pages of Interzone, and the SF world has been quietly holding it’s collective breath in preparation […]

All the chat over the last few months here has been about The Moon King.  Complete new baby syndrome, for which I make no apology, but I’m aware that the older siblings have been somewhat neglected. Especially jogging my elbow for attention is my collection, The Ephemera, which seems to have picked up a few sales on […]

The Moon King : One month in

May 30, 2014

Since it’s been over a month now since The Moon King was published, I thought it’d be cool to take a wee look back at how it’s all gone down. Well, overall, I’d have to say the reception’s been a positive one. We had two launch events (at Eastercon and at Glasgow’s Waterstones, Argyle St). Both […]

Well and truly under sail

Well, I think after last night we can properly consider The Moon King officially launched. Serious and heartfelt thanks to all the family and friends who came along to hear me wibble on for a bit and buy the book. And deep gratitude to Emma, Caron and all the staff at Waterstones Argyle St for managing […]
