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.

Part two of my blog post series on nineties anime, in which I start to realise just what the hell I've got myself into.
A month on and my inexplicable obsession with tracking down and watching nineties anime shows no signs of abating, even as the hope of discovering rare gems amidst the brightly coloured dross looks increasingly desperate.  St...

They've sure taken their time about it, but - thanks be to Bill Campbell and his publishing house Rosarium! - the stars are finally in alignment for mine and Duncan Kay's long-gestating graphic novel 21st Gods.
The stars are nearly aligned. It feels like I've been working on C21st Gods forever. Or rather, I should say "we."  For this project began with my artist friend Duncan Kay, there was never any possibility of anyone else drawi...

Andrew, I think the first issue is scheduled for September, with two and three to follow at two month intervals and then the trade after that, somewhere around next March.  Oh, and I should probably mention that the cover is only a mock-up; hopefully the finished version will be even more awesome!

The absolutely, positively last zombie story I'm going to write is now up for your listening pleasure at Pseudopod.
At the risk of repeating what I just said in that wholly unimaginative title, my zombie story Twitcher is now up at the world's favourite horror podcast site, Pseudopod, introduced by the marvelous Alasdair Stuart and read in...

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.

Pet sharks!  Lonely super-villains!  Love-sick astronauts!  Terrifying caretakers!  I have new short stories out this month.

This week on the blog, for some reason, I'm talking about the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot and the issue of violence in video games as it pertains to narrative.  Well, why not?
In a way it seems unfair to pick on Tomb Raider - by which, let's clarify up front, I mean the 2013 reboot and not the 1996 original - as an illustration of the particular video game narrative failing I'd like to talk about h...

My reactions to Eastercon 2015.  If you're not a fan of frustrated rants (or asterisks) then perhaps best to steer clear!
I have a soft spot for the Three Magpies pub at Heathrow.  Their food is good, their prices are reasonable, their staff are awfully nice and friendly.  In fact it's rare that I've gone in and there hasn't been some sort of wa...
