Thanks to journalist Don O'Mahony for this interview with me in the Irish Examiner about my story in the recent 2000 AD Summer Sci-Fi Special.

It's great to see the Irish media taking an interest in comics.

I’ll be conducting Q&As after the screenings of three films at the Galway Film Fleadh this year:

Possum
Wednesday, 11 July at Pálás Screen 1 – film begins at 22:00

Holiday
Thursday, 12 July at Pálás Screen 1 – film begins at 20:45

I’ll be discussing this challenging feature film debut by Swedish filmmaker Isabella Eklöf (Notes from Underground).

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

I’ll be talking to screenwriter Ed Solomon (Men in Black) about his work on the Bill & Ted movies and TV series, including the forthcoming Bill & Ted Face the Music.

I'm delighted at the news that my PS Publishing / Electric Dreamhouse Press monograph about David Lynch's iconic film, Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me, has been nominated for The British Fantasy Society, British Fantasy Award in the Best Non-Fiction category.

Congratulations to all the nominees across all the categories!

I'm honoured to be in such esteemed company, and to be nominated alongside Ursula K Le Guin feels like a dream. 😃

Much thanks to editor Neil Snowdon and publisher Peter Crowther too!

The inaugural episode of the Hammered podcast is now available for listening. The host of the series JG Byrne and I talk about The Quatermass Xpermiment (1955).

It was a fun and nerdy deep dive into the film. Perfect for fans of Hammer films, science fiction, and Nigel Kneale (though of course he didn't write the movie, but it's based on his original BBC TV series. I give a lot of love to Kneale in this episode.)

There will be a different guest with John in the next episode, and I should be returning for more Hammer exegesis with The Mummy (1959).

Make sure to subscribe to the series if you fancy listening to in-depth analysis of the Hammer 'horrors'.
