Win a proof copy of The Iron Jackal BEFORE IT’S EVEN OUT IN STORES SQUEEEEEEE*

Yeah, what the title says! Head over to Bookgeeks for some badass competitionage and win yourself an early copy. Only open to people in the UK, I’m afraid, but there has to be SOME consolation for our lack of summer (again). Go compete!

SF Gateway launching soon from Gollancz

Oh no, wait, am I gonna actually have to buy an e-reader now? Thousands of out-of-print classic SF and Fantasy novels resurrected like a horde of radioactive necromorphs for the delectation of the ebook generation? I can virtually feel myself being dragged by my fingernails into the future. Damn. Check out the Guardian article here. […]

New Book On The Way, Braided Path New Edition Released

The new edition of the Braided Path, after a few technical difficulties, has found its way into online booksellers just in time for the release date. In fact, it’s available now from Play.com or at The Book Depository (free postage overseas, if you don’t live in the UK), and Amazon have it up for pre-order. Sweet. […]

Pandemonium cover, Iron Jackal Delivered (Properly This Time), What I’m Up To Next

Squee! And better still, the whole graphic novel is full colour like this. I’ve seen some of Cassandra’s finished interior art and it’s utterly brilliant. It’s due to be released IN THE US ONLY on New Year’s Day. Contrary to the usual way of things with my books, the States will be getting it first, […]

A Few Reminders, and Alaizabel Gets A Death Metal Soundtrack

Just a couple of quick reminders, since my appearances in the world of mortals are rare and few: I’ll be at Forbidden Planet, Thurs 23rd from 6pm-7pm for their Ten Author Signing. From 7pm – midnight said Ten Authors will presumably be in a nearby pub, drinking away the demons of their ruined lives and […]

BLC MMP FYI (or, I Like Acronyms), and Alaizabel in Total Film Shocker!

Hey all, First a reminder that The Black Lung Captain is now available in the UK in mass market paperback (ie the handy, cheap and pocket-sized paperbacks we all know and love instead of the big fat trade editions). It will get its first release July 26th in the US. Second, Alaizabel made the Total […]

Signing at Forbidden Planet on the 23rd June

Title says it all, really. I’ll be doing another book signing at Forbidden Planet on Shaftesbury Avenue in London on the 23rd of the month, which is a Thursday.  Other eminent SF/Fantasy authors who may want to scratch you with their pens on the day will include, but are not limited to, Tom Lloyd, Jaine […]

Alt Fiction

So I’ve been writing all kinds of secret little projects while waiting for my editor to get back to me with The Iron Jackal edits, which you may hear about in time if anything comes of them 😉 Meantime, let me tell you about another convention at which I shall be doing some general panel-bothering […]

New Braided Path Cover

Yesss! I know, I know, some people out there have a problem with the recent trend of hooded dudes on the covers of fantasy books. Well, I’ve never had a hooded dude on one of mine, and it’s about time I did. Plus the Weavers look way badass. So there 😛

Babel Clash

Just a quickie: I’m guest blogging with Kevin Hearne over at Babel Clash for the next 10 days or so. If you’re starved of blog posts here, go have a look 😉
