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...

Some news of recent short story sales and publications, including my Team Invasion coming out in the free-to-read first issue of new magazine Liminal Stories.

This week's blog post with a self-explanatory title: In Defense of Second Drafts, in which I try hard to argue that second drafts are the best and most fun part of the writing process.
Recently my friend Andy Knighton wrote an excellent blog post titled Surviving the Second Draft, which did exactly what it said on the tin, offering some sensible tips on how to struggle through that fearsome first redraft. I...

Some big news on my next graphic novel, C21st Gods, and an opportunity to help a majorly worthy publisher become the Cthulhu-sized leviathan they're destined to be.
It's been a while since I've talked about my horror / sci-fi comic book miniseries C21st Gods, so let's redress that a little, shall we? After all, there's never been a better time to do so - but more on that in a moment. T...

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. ...

My thoughts on a rather neat bit of free editing software that has the potential to make a lot of writers' lives easier - but also the potential to be really annoying at times.

The short version of my thoughts on this year's Eastercon: decent event, hopeless choice of venue.  Or, alternatively, here's the longer version...
The good news? This year's Eastercon was better than last year's. The bad news? It was still just okay. This time around, at least there was only the one huge problem, but it was a pretty big huge problem. The venue chose...
