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.

More 90's anime reviews, and this time around I try and balance out the unpleasantness of the Legend of the Overfiend sequel with the deeply silly All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku. Plus Burn Up W and Tokyo Revelation!

Time for more nineties anime! Because it's always time for more nineties anime! This time around we have Dominion Tank Police, Twilight of the Dark Master, The You're Under Arrest OVA series and Twin Signal.

This week on the blog, some thoughts about the short fiction market, PayPal's outrageous (and partially hidden) charges, and how maybe we might all work together to make this one corner of the publishing industry a fairer place.
If you write short fiction for money, you almost certainly have a PayPal account. That's a given. The vast majority of markets will only pay via PayPal, especially if they're in the US and you're not, as it's invariably the...

The nineties anime reviews reach a staggering tenth entry, sure proof that I need to rethink my life (but almost certainly won't.) In this entry: You're Under Arrest, Oh! My Goddess, Wicked City and Shadow Skill...

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...

Somehow I seem to have become a slush reader for Digital Fantasy Fiction. Here's the accumulated wisdom of my first couple of weeks in the job...
Woah, that title's a total lie. But, I don't know, I thought it sounded cool. At any rate, I at least am now a slush reader, an occupation I turned my back on many years ago when I realised it was thankless and joyless and ...

Lots happening on the short story front again this month, but the big news is that the hardback of The Sign in the Moonlight and Other Stories is nearly out and looking stunning.
Let's start with the big news: the hardback of The Sign in the Moonlight and Other Stories is out very soon from NewCon Press, I've put my illegible squiggle to all 100 copies (well, 98, it's weird to sign your own contributo...

Writer folks, may I draw your attention to new writing resource site Re:Fiction? They have some good stuff going on that I think many of you will find useful.
There are tons of great writing resources out there, but that's not to say that there isn't the need for more, especially when they're bringing something fresh to the table. For that reason amongst others, I've grown rather ...

Here are my brief thoughts about the latest Puppies / Hugos debacle, along with some thoughts about how all the negative energy being expended on calling them out could be put to better use - like, say, helping a publisher that offers a genuine antidote to discrimination and bigotry.
So it's 2016 and the Sad and / or Rabid Puppies have done it again. And for anyone who doesn't know what that means, a) you're fortunate and b) here's a link to an article in The Guardian that explains things, more or less. ...
