It's been a while, but I've written a new blog post: Anthony vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

I've posted a review of the Ernest Cline book Armada over on my blog.

TL;DR: It's a good read that's a little too close to Cline's previous book for comfort in parts.

If by any chance one of my readers is endowed with Hugo nominating powers, there's a week left to nominate A Room Full of Elephants for this year's awards.

If you liked it, of course.

Book review: Whispers Under Ground

See what I thought about book three of Ben Aaronovitch's Peter Grant series: http://anthonycamber.com/2017/03/04/review-whispers-under-ground/

I'm in reading mode at the moment, and I'll try to get back into the habit of posting short reviews of the books. (I recently read the autobiography of the actor Brian Blessed. My review: yes, he's exactly as you'd expect. I don't think that merits a blog post.)

First up: Exo, by Steven Gould, the latest in the Jumper series. Below is a photo of all four books in the series, with an exclusive glimpse of my carpet.

A Room Full of Elephants is released today. I’m so glad that after a year of effort my deranged wittering is finally in people’s hands, and the feedback so far is tremendously pleasing.

Release day is an odd one for an author. The excitement of sales, the checking of charts. Most of all, the feeling that it’s done, at last. I can’t tweak that paragraph any more. I can’t punch up that dialogue.

There’s plenty left for me to do, of course: marketing, for instance. Giveaways. Shouting into the wind, hoping for reviews. That’s the business side of the book business.

The book itself is no longer mine: it’s yours.

My head is still full of the quantum blur of superimposed drafts and dangling, discarded threads. Every line surrounded by ghosts. You, instead, get the focused view: the paved path from start to finish, a view I’ll never have.

I envy you that.

And yet every one of us, me included, experiences the book in our heads unlike everyone else. You see Keith one way, I see him another. And everyone is right. If it’s not stated explicitly in the words (and even if it is), the interpretation is entirely up to you. So you, collectively, see a cloud far fuzzier than the one I see.

The difference is that for me, the hallucinations triggered the words, and for you it’s the other way around.

Writing is weird.
