Thank you, Pterry
I said, when I write my little tribute to Harold Ramis, that there was one tribute I was dreading having to write, as I knew it would be the one that would hit me the hardest. That time has sadly come, and in the end, it's taken me over a week to collect my...

Ehren Kruger has no business calling himself a writer
As I'm sure you can imagine, the art of storytelling is something that's, well, really really bloody important to me . I'd assumed it was important to everyone who makes a living through writing fiction, because when you're writing fiction, telling a convin...

Manic Depressives In Space
There's been a little bit of a theme in a couple of my books so far (namely the first in the Cynos Union saga, Messiah's Shard , and book 3, The Abominable Moon ), of people not being quite who they say they are, or rather, not being totally honest with how...

Can we pack it in with this nonsense about "proper literature", please?
Ah, the joys of being on holiday; it quite often means that I miss something the day it gets published and then have to rant about it a week after everyone else has given it a good going over. Usually, that'd lead to me not bothering, since people have alre...

Never have I been prouder to be a metalhead than I am right now
Y'know, I've never made a secret of my musical tastes. I am a metalhead. I may not have the long hair any longer (because damn , did I ever look like Meatloaf, when I had long hair), and it's no longer dyed every colour they could find in the barber's, but ...

A nerd's perspective - the EU is the model for humanity's future...
Well there we go, it's that time again. Today's the day when we've all flocked out to the polling booths for the European elections (I hope there's been a good turn-out, too; ye can't complain about who gets in if you didn't even vote in the first place). A...

So THAT'S the difference between a 'character' and a 'person'...
Warning: this post talks about Transformers. Again. Because I like Transformers. Deal with it.  There's been a massive furore in the world of Transformers over the past few months, even bigger than when Beast Wars happened, or when Bayformers happened (but ...

Heartbleed - unveiling a curious quirk in humanity's heart
Well, this week's been interesting so far, ain't it? Look around the internet, and you'll see that the biggest news story of the week ( nay , of the bleedin' decade ) has been this heap big palaver about the Heartbleed bug. Yes, this was the week that the i...

Female Aliens, or: Why Do People Insist On Putting Ladybumps On Lizards?
Blimey it's been a busy old month, what with one thing and another. There's the writing on the next book to keep on top of (which is loads of fun), there's some super-secret artwork that you've not seen yet, but that you will , eventually (which is also loa...
