Having said lots of nice things about Nine Worlds in my last blog post, it would be remiss (and incredibly out of character!) of me to not grumble a bit about the less than good.
[You can find part 1, "The Very Good Indeed," here.] So as I suggested in part one, I don't want to rail too much against this year's Nine Worlds because I had a great time there and overall I felt, as always, that it got the...

Some news on a recent short story sale that I'm getting giddily excited about, because holy damn this book is set to be a thing of loveliness, and how often do you get published alongside Jules goddamn Verne?
It occurred to me recently that I can trace my desire to write short genre fiction pretty clearly back to a certain time in my youth, and that in fact I can go further than that: I can pin it down to the two books that introd...

So here's what I'll be up to at this year's Nine Worlds - including the slightly terrifying thing that I'm a little bit terrified about.
With this year's Nine Worlds just around the corner - well, two whole weeks away - I thought it was about time I got my schedule out into the world.  I'm fairly busy this time, at least in comparison to anything I've been at ...

Oh no, that's just my serious voice.  I could go for the old hat / gunbelt / nothing else look, but I'd hardly stand out at Nine Worlds.

Now that we've passed the middle of the year, here's me thinking out loud about the numerous novels I have on the go right now.
It seems like a while since I've talked about my multifarious ongoing novels here, (or indeed about anything much besides nineties anime), and so I thought that June drawing to a close was a sensible enough reason to stop and...

On the blog this week, I've been thinking about how life is long enough to get really good at more than just the one thing, and how maybe writing offers an opportunity to do just that, and in the meantime figuring out how to letter comic books.
I was reading an article recently which suggested that it was a mistake to imagine you were ever too late on in life to master a new skill, or that having mastered one you were shut out from learning others.  The author's log...

On the blog this week, my obsession reaches both new highs and new lows, in the latest installment of this demented nineties-anime-watching quest I've foisted upon myself.

Here's part one of my write-up of this year's Nine Worlds, focusing on all of the good stuff - which since it was pretty great, is quite a lot.
I would say that of all the cons I've been to - and that's a rather high number, now - this year's Nine Worlds was, on average, the one I enjoyed the most.  And it occurs to me that, for once, I can say specifically why that ...

Yet more nineties anime reviews, which this time around include Casshan, The Dark Myth, Geobreeders and the flat-out classic that is the first Patlabor movie.

A review of sorts of my first Edge Lit, Derby's well-regarded one day genre-writing convention.

Another week in my increasingly endless-seeming exploration of nineties anime!  This week we have X, Spriggan, New Gall Force and Zeoraima - Project Hades.

Here we are with part two of my self-explainingly titled post about just how I go about writing novels these days.

For any writer types who find how other writer types write interesting, here's me talking a bit about my current novel-writing process.
