Einstein A-go-go

October 5, 2015


This month sees the publication of a new anthology that celebrates the centenary of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity. In I Am Because You Are editors Pippa Goldschmidt and Tania Hershman have assembled an exceptional array of contributions from fiction authors and science writers who explore the profound extents to which the ramifications of Albie’s […]

Last Exit…

October 19, 2013


Had the pleasure this week of a sneak preview of Chris Kelso‘s new novella, Last Exit To Interzone. It is most excellent bizarro fun. In what amounts pretty much to a love letter to the beat writers of the 50s and 60s – an admiration evident down to the punctuation – Kelso weaves a gonzo […]

Infinity Plus Plus

August 16, 2013


News from Keith Brooke that Infinity Plus Books have revamped their website. It’s all sexy and easy to browse now, and displays a really impressive roster of authors and books. If you’re a Brooke fan or a fan of Eric Brown, IP is pretty much the go-to-place for their work. Likewise, as a long time admirer […]

Some recommendations

March 8, 2013


So my Twitter today (and that’s the great thing  about Twitter: there’s commonality and cross-over but ultimately everyone’s feed is unique – a conversational mix tape) has been largely full of shout outs for International Women’s Day.  And in amongst all of that was some discussion about the guy who posted on some discussion board […]

Spin: a good yarn

And, having been fortunate enough to get a sneaky early preview, I can tell you it’s a belter.  Set in an alternative futuristic Greece, the story teases the familiar Arachne myth into something contemporary, relevant […]

Score card 2012

January 8, 2013


Okay, so it’s January, which means, as I sorta promised last year, it’s time to see how I got on with my rather ambitious goals for 2012. In summary I hoped to: Novels: Finish Queen Of Clouds and have started The Poisoner’s Road Shorts: Write and publish 10 short stories Band: Release 2 or 3 […]

Christmas Quintet

December 19, 2012


Really pleased to announce that my punky musical story, Arrhythmia, has been reprinted in Infinity Plus’s new Quintet anthology. Yeah, so Arrhythmia was nominated for the BSFA award and it’s one of the stories I’m proudest of, but what’s really cool is that it sits snugly in amongst stories by four writers whose work I absolutely adore. For me, […]
