Velocity cover and Gollancz Festival 2015!

A story of reckless ambition, unshakable friendship and the perils of fame, set in a broken future… Cassica and Shiara have grown up in an outback settlement far from anywhere. Life’s hard where they live, but these two girls have a dream. Cassica is a talented driver; Shiara her engineer and navigator. Between them they’ve cobbled […]

I live!

… not that you’d know it from the amount of updates on this site! But hey, now I’m here, I have a whole bunch of nothing to tell you anyway! Yay! When I was a kid, I used to just bang down the first good idea I had, write a book of it, sling it […]

VELOCITY is done!

La la la, done and delivered and getting edited now, so all in time for a mid-2015 release (in the UK) which is all still on as far as I know! Blurb and more details to follow nearer the time, there’s no point getting you all excited six months early… To tide you over, here’s […]

Malice Movie (But Not As You Might Think), Velocity, stuff like that

So, I’ve been wasting all my time writing a movie of Malice and everything, and it turns out someone’s already got there first! Specifically, some rather amazing young people from Israel who’ve spent a year making their own film of my book. I am totally awed and humbled by the creativity and effort of these 10-11 […]

Gollancz Festival 2014

  Gollancz are having their own mini-festival and I, of course, shall be there! Come by!

Steampunk Festival and, uh-oh, New Book News!

SO! NEWS! First up, my trip to Sweden for the SweCon Steampunk Festival in Gävle. It runs from June 27th-29th, and I’ll be doing, like, a ton of panels and interviews and talking about The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray (if I can remember what happened in it!) and Retribution Falls and all things steampunky. I will also be […]

SILVER Released in US March 25th

    Now that is one sexy cover. If only I had a larger version of it. Allow me to quote the starred review it got in Booklist (spoilers ahoy – if you were gonna buy it anyway, don’t read): “A couple of boys on a biology field trip uncover a silver creature with chitin markings […]

Your tri-monthly update is here!

Y’know, even though I have the excuse of being born before the age of social media sapped all meaning out of everything, I’m beginning to suspect I’m a bit slow at this blogging lark. But you’ve all been very patient, and as I’ve just turned 37 I’m literally likely to die at any minute, so here’s […]

Merry Christmas, one and all!

Festive cheer, Yuletide joy, and let’s hope this isn’t the year when dread Nyarlathotep returns from the illimitable vasty dark wherein he dwelleth and devours all our tasty souls. Santa’s update is scanty this year. Suffice to say that the latter half of 2013 has demonstrated just how slowly things move in the screen world. […]

World Fantasy Con

Just a quick note to let you know that I shall be shambling around WFC 2013 in Brighton from Thu 31st Oct to Sun 3rd Nov (though likely I’ll be hauling my newly cirrhotic carcass back home to London fairly early on Sunday). In among my hectic schedule of dossing about, eating and wandering hither […]
