    TV Project Updates

    by  • September 17, 2018 • Projects, TV • 0 Comments

    Thought it was about time to let people know something (*nothing*) about the TV projects I have in the works. In the TV world, just about everything operates beneath the surface.  Contracts prevent anyone talking about a series until it has definitely been greenlit by a broadcaster, and, usually, the broadcaster has made the...

    New Ebooks On The Way

    by  • January 9, 2013 • Book News, ebooks, Projects, Publishing • 5 Comments

    Ebook versions of my out-of-print titles will be published in the coming weeks. These will be enhanced versions, with corrected copy and in some cases additions to text. They will also include detailed commentaries – background to the story, how the book came to be written and how it reached publication. The information, tips...

    New Site, New Age

    by  • October 31, 2012 • ebooks, Projects, Web News • 2 Comments

    Here’s the new website.  It’s only been, what, three years in the coming… I needed to pull together the old information site at the .net address and the Jack of Ravens blog, and hopefully keep it up-to-the-minute – particularly as there’s a lot happening in the near future, including the ‘lost’ books, novellas and...

    New Worlds, No Maps

    by  • May 27, 2012 • Book News, Fantasy, Gods and Monsters, History, Projects, Researching the Book, Symbols and Archetypes • 0 Comments

    Stepping into that strange liminal space of thinking about a new book.  Exciting, certainly.  Scary too.  Strange connections are made as the universe, or the unconscious, recognises what you’re doing, pulling things out of the aether and thrusting them under your nose.  Images, music, places, people, dreams, serendipitous discoveries, all have a part to...

    The Aliens Have Won

    by  • December 13, 2010 • Projects • 1 Comment

    SF writer Charlie Stross has an excellent analysis of why so many people now feel politically powerless. He asks why is the world so clearly going wrong and why can’t anyone fix it. His proposal is that the problem can be laid at the door of corporations, which are hive organisms “constructed out of...

    Tate Britain Appearance

    by  • July 6, 2007 • Projects, Publishing, Symbols and Archetypes • 0 Comments

    Yesterday I gave a very successful lecture at the world-famous Tate Britain art gallery in London, entitled ‘Myth, Memory and the Art of Richard Dadd’. The event was a sell-out, and also pretty ground-breaking on several fronts. I was one of the first – if not the first – genre writer to be invited...

    The Burning Man Cover Copy

    ..has just been agreed: Old gods never die. They wait for the right time to regain their grip on humanity. In Egypt, in Greece, China, frozen northern Europe, America, ancient forces are awakening. Only a handful of heroes know the truth and stand ready to defend our modern world from powers rooted in a...

    The Burning Man – Here’s The Cover

    by  • April 18, 2007 • Projects • 2 Comments

    Ask ten authors how their covers get made and you’ll probably get ten different answers. Luckily I’m not one of those who reels with nausea when they open a package to find for the first time the completed cover art, usually looking like it should go on a totally different book, if not genre....
