GARCING UP THE WRONG TREE
Thanks to a rainy weekend, I managed to put the finishing touches on a couple of GARC* MOCs I've been fiddling about with for a while, and which will (eventually) be part of a display for this year's Bricktober . So, for your entertainment, here are the Tug...

REVIEWS, REVIEW, REVIEWS

MAGRIT GOT REAL
The dust has finally settled, I've gone back to the real world, and I can finally reflect on a mad fortnight of Magrit related shenanigans. First up was a surprise appearance at the Perth Writers Festival - a surprise to me as much as anybody else, as I w...

I've been interviewed over at writer Louisa Loder's website. More Magrit talk, plus writing horror, changing things up, and a kiss for an albino snake. Check it out.

AND ONE OF MY OWN
And, for balance, one of my own. I started out life as a poet: my first ever sale was a poem, to a University magazine, and over the years, I've published at the length far too infrequently. Good poetry is hard , and I am, far too often, far too lazy to cra...
