The boy who loved The Boy Who Loved Death

November 20, 2015


This is an unashamed advert for The Boy Who Love Death: a book I know I’m going to adore, and I’m pretty sure that anyone else who enjoys scalpel-sharp stories written with unbelievably lyrical precision will too. I loved Hal Duncan’s last collection, Scruffians!, because it assembled most of the tales in his wonderful Scruffians cycle in […]

If anyone happens to be in Glasgow’s Merchant City next Saturday afternoon (perhaps taking in the entertainment and foodie delights of the Merchant City Festival), you might be interested in the Britannia Panopticon Book Fair.

PSA: Waterstones event

Ready to launch

October 11, 2013


There’s two and a bit weeks to go before this year’s World Fantasy Convention down in lovely Brighton. I’m not doing terribly much at it, so you’ll mostly find me in the bar, but what will be happening at the con is the launch of a couple of anthologies which I’ve mentioned before here on account of […]

Fringe activities #2

August 22, 2013


So, once again, catching up with the Fringe. Feel like I’ve been skimming it this year. Been through a few times, seen a  few things, but not loads. All of what I have seen though has been quality. Last week I was fortunate enough to catch up with Sarah Louise Young and Michael Roulston’s Songs […]
