    Reflections on Eastercon 2015

    I have been attending the BSFA convention known at Eastercon for ten years now. The first time I attended was in Glasgow back in 2006. I was persuaded to go by an author I had met online, Deborah J Miller. I didn’t know it then but Debbie would become a good friend, who would encourage...

    Oracle by Susan Boulton [spoilers]

    Many spoilers! This book is very clever, which is to say (in part) that it demands a fair bit of attention from the reader in order to follow what's going on and who's doing what. This isn't a bad thing: the world is rich, the politics interesting, and the author doesn't patronise the reader...

    Oracle -- Susan Boulton

    I've just started reading Oracle, and I'm so impressed. I love Sue's voice and I love the way she opens the story. ... It was a storm of gun flashes and bright swords, broken promises and murder. It does exactly what I like in an opening: it persuades me that the writer knows exactly what...

    Oracle by Susan Boulton - Press Release

    Susan has the unusual distinction of arriving into this world 200 yards from where, 37 years before, Tolkien spent time thinking about hobbits. Perhaps that explains her love for, and interest in, the genre. Married with two grown up daughters, Oracle, a gaslight Fantasy, is her first novel...

    With regards to my novel, Oracle.

    I must say, Gary, you have done my book proud with the superb cover, not to mention the wonderful editing, and endless support.

    Eureka Moment

    A eureka moment. Does anyone else have this happen in their writing? A single moment when you find a character or plot line that is the one element that will draw all the strands of the story together. I have been working on an outline for a new novel. I had my main theme/plot line. I knew or...

    Thoughts and opinions welcomed.

    I am at present 4/5ths done with the first draft of my latest effort. Unlike my other attempts I am using a real time and places as the backdrop for my story. Certain events did happen, certain places did and some still do exist. Other elements are totally fictional. Out of this has come a...
