Today I’m thrilled to welcome author Helen Grant to my website. Helen writes young adult thrillers with a decidedly Gothic edge and I love them! Her first novel, The Vanishing of Katharina Li…

Imagine if your favorite picture could automatically be converted into a short video and labeled. Sound like a fantasy? Maybe not for much longer. Using a deep learning algorithm, MIT’s Carl Vondrick, Hamed Pirsiavash, and Antonio Torralba recently generated one second of predictive video based on a single still frame. Called Scene Dynamics, the software has …

Excellent advice for indie authors.
It’s been three years (October/November 2013) since I published by first novel – Oranges for Christmas. I now have three novels published and one on pre-order due out 16 December 2016. …

The HTC One A9s is a top mid-range phone, with an attractive slimline all-metal build. The 5-inch HD screen looks good, and the phone takes good pictures with its HDR cameras.

Story
Tagline
Hi, I'm Steve and I like science, technology, books, films and keeping fit.
Introduction
I'm Welsh. I studied Physics at Oxford and spent ten years doing nuclear physics research. Now I run Landmark Internet Ltd and I write for S21 and blog at Blog Blogger Bloggest. I'm married with two children and live near Oxford.
Bragging rights
