GollanczFest

#GollanczFest line up announced

GollanczFest takes place on 4 November this year, at Foyles in London, and I’ll be there waving my books about and stumbling nervously over the simplest questions. Science Fiction and fantasy readers of all kinds should attend -it’s a great chance to catch up with legends of my generation like Ed Cox, Al Robertson, Tom…




Fatty in colour! (Thanks to the Beano)

I’ve posted sketches of Fatty before, but at the beginning of the month I had the unique opportunity to draw him on a large scale – and in colour – having joined fellow Gollanczist, Mark Stay, and the very beautiful Kit Cox at the MCM Comic Con to sign books. We were set up at a long table where we consumed sarnies,…

Launching Steeple

All sorts of things have been occurring over the last couple of weeks to herald the launch of “Steeple”, the second novel in the Kenstibec series, which was published by Gollancz on 18 June.

Steeple signing!

So I’ll be popping up at Forbidden Planet in London on 25 June to do a signing of book two in the Kenstibec series, Steeple. It was great to launch Barricade there last year and I can’t think of a better spot to reveal Steeple to the world. My blurb for Steeple: Kenstibec was a…
