Here's my brief write-up of last weekend's Fantasycon by the Sea, in which I wish I had slightly nicer things to say and get far too excited about shove penny.

I have a couple of stories out in a new market, Great Jones Street, that also happens to be an app and all in all is something rather novel, exciting and worth checking out.
So I've made the odd mention of a thing called Great Jones Street, and that they've published a couple of my stories, while being kind of vague on the precise details. If I'm honest, that was partly because I'm habitually va...

There's been much goodness happening on the short story front! I have new anthologies out - including the fantastic-looking Mysterion - and a fair bit of work in the pipeline.
I remember thinking a few weeks back that nowhere near enough had happened on the short story front to warrant another of these posts. Somehow, by the time I reconsidered, far too much had happened to reasonably cram in. Bu...

The nineties anime marathon continues, with this time around the first Ranma 1/2 movie, more Dirty Pair Flash, the entirely dire Vampire Wars, and a new favourite in the shape of the excellent Gunsmith Cats.

I have a couple of events coming up, including being a guest speaker at the inaugural Humber SFF meet a week on Saturday.
I haven't been out and about quite as much as I'd have liked this year, because money basically, and I'm sad to be missing my first Nine Worlds this weekend - everyone have fun without me, and please spare no thought for me s...

This week, a blog post titled "Imagine a world without our nostalgia", in which I get grumpy and hectoring about the fact that every damn film out this year is based on something I watched or played or read when I was a kid.

Here's what I'll be up to this weekend, at the aptly named Fantasycon by the Sea.
Hey, that rhymes! I'm a poet and I never knew it to be the case. Well, I'm not doing a great deal at Fantasycon this year, which perhaps is for the best since I had a piece cut out of me by trained medical professionals on M...

It's reassuring that fifteen posts in I'm still turning up great nineties anime to watch - including at least one new all time favourite. This time around we have the second Ranma 1/2 movie, Samurai X: Trust and Betrayal, Sol Bianca and Silent Möbius.

Here, rather late, is my account of last weekend's first ever Humber SFF meet-up, at which me and Daniel Godfrey read from our respective works, a great pile of books were raffled and a certain amount of beer was drunk.
Me reading. I do like the word "inaugural", and it's not often I get to use it, even less often I get to use it correctly. So that made it all the more of a pleasure to be invited to read at the inaugural event of the new Hu...

Recently my novel planning process has either leveled up or else tipped over into ridiculousness, and I'm really not sure which.
I talked a while back, here and to a lesser extent here, about how my novel writing process has gone from being a fairly laid back and make-it-up-as-you-go-along affair to a current level of preparation that could justly be c...

More nineties anime, with this time around nothing I outright hated, a couple of things I really enjoyed, and one sorta, kinda borderline classic. Nineties anime, truly you're the gift that keeps on giving! This time through: Super Dimensional Fortress Macross II: Lovers Again, Dirty Pair Flash: Angels in Trouble, Red Hawk: Weapon of Death, and Memories.

Going to be at EdgeLit this Saturday? Enjoy great books and free alcohol? Or totally indifferent to books but still like free alcohol? Or a teetotal bibliophile? Whatever the case, there'll be something to keep you amused at the NewCon / Fox Spirit book launch between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.
I think that the last time I had a book launch was for my first novel Giant Thief, five or so years ago, and that wasn't much of a thing all told - more of a book hermitage, really - so there's no shortage of reasons for me t...
