I Scry With My Little Eye
A fun experiment for all to try! You’re bored, right? How about a dare? How about you look into a mirror on Halloween night and say something creepy? Maybe the Lord’s Prayer backwards? Or just say 'Bloody Mary' five times? No? What, you think you're going t...

The Returned
My second book has just been published: the novelisation of French hit TV show The Returned. I really enjoyed writing this - a whole new experience, to take somebody else's baby and turn it into a novel. I worked damn hard on it, and as always I hope it's a...

And the winner is...
    This year Reviver had the honour of winning the Audie Audiobook
award in the Paranormal category, and it struck me how it was very much a
shared honour – author, narrator, production team. Look behind the Audie in the picture above and you’ll see a BAFT...

Too much fruit and veg is bad for you, says study
You remember the study that suggested the 5-a-day fruit and veg advice should really be 7-a-day? Or even 10-a-day? Well, I just read a study that suggested – using exactly the same methodology – that 7-a-day is WORSE for you than 3-a-day. Yes, THREE a day. ...

Offence is good
He’s a great big kid without an ounce of tact, he’s overpaid,
and he’s married to the second-coolest woman in the universe. He’s also had the
outrage of the Internet poured over his head. Why Jonathan Ross should give zero shit about the SF
community’s self...

Reviver Book 2... finished! (ish)
I put the finishing touches to Book 2 last week, you may be glad to hear. All done! Well. Um. Not quite , let's be honest, but it's off to the copyeditor now, meaning it'll come back with a few queries, lots of small fixes, and probably a humungous plot hol...

The Returned first review
The first review of my adaptation of The Returned has arrived. "...an addictive read. It’s one of the most compelling novels I’ve read in a long time." "I read it in just 24 hours, resenting any attempt to take me from it, such as work, food and sleep." ".....

Off to Loncon3...
I'm off to London on Thursday for Loncon3, which is hosting the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention. Plenty of interesting panels and gatherings going on over the five days of the Con, and I think I'm looking forward to it. Or I might be dreading it. Not ...

You've gotta love Google Translate...
The paperback of the Spanish edition of Reviver is coming out in June: The tagline 'la muerte no los hara callar' is based on 'Death won't silence them', which the original UK hardback used. Google Translate renders this into something that makes me smile: ...

Thanks. I shall give my review a bump back onto the homepage of  +HorrorCultFilms and I'll update the info regarding the paperback release.

Btw, just read The Death of Never Geary Will be Televised. Absolutely awesome. It made me laugh, was heartfelt and was kickass. I love your writing style. It talks on my level. :)
