    Titancon - you tube clip

    tonight was literature night at my favourite, by a long margin, con, and I was reading. Here it is: Tomorrow I'm on various panels, playing 8/10 cats do countdown, eating mexican, karaoke-ing with Pat Cadigan and wearing a lovely beard. Oh and entering a cake into an unofficial Bake off.

    Sneak preview - chapter one, Abendau's Legacy

    Just one month to go and then Abendau is finished and out there in the big wide world. This is the first chapter, one I feel there's a certain inevitability within. In a good way. JoZebwrites: Abendau's Legacy - sneak preview

    Inish Carraig by Jo Zebedee

    I thoroughly enjoyed this first contact story from Jo Zebedee. It strikes an excellent balance between character- and plot-driven story. There are around half a dozen major characters who are all well drawn and easy to either sympathise with or dislike as appropriate and the plot, whilst not...

    the time has finally come! Up until now I've maintained most of my platforms individually but I am simply swamped at the moment and, with 2 more books coming out over the next 12 months, and a few shorts, things don't look like getting any easier. As a result, I've tried to find a place where...

    dulcet (ha!) tones on the radio

    I'm on the radio tomorrow talking about the places that inspired Inish Carraig (my Northern Irish based sci fi) It was recorded at the harbour John leaves for the prison on a wild, Atlantic storm day - totally appropriate for Inish - with the wind whipping my words away. (I also don't say...
