Pandemonium, Braided Path, Other Stuff

So! Rather unexpectedly, a few weeks ago the artist for Pandemonium turned in pencil sketches for the entire graphic novel, all panelled out and everything. And they are totally hyper awesome. I danced. And, because I’m tragic, I ROFLcoptored at my own jokes, although in my defence I had forgotten them all as it’s been, […]

Progress Report #3456A/7

Alright boys and girls, Chris has been busy. So I’ve got seven chapters in the bag for the revamped version of The Iron Jackal. I’ve been faffing around with the title but I think I’m sticking with the one I’ve got now. The titular Iron Jackal wasn’t in the reworked version originally but I think I’m […]

Them’s The Breaks

Erk. So anyway, I wrote the first quarter of The Iron Jackal and then threw it in the bin and started again. Just goes to show, no matter how long you’re at this game, you can still get things wrong.  It’s terrifically hard to be objective about a novel that you’re writing; you’re just too […]

The Crooked Lanes Forum

So anyways, one day some forward-thinking people realised that discussions about my lovely books would be better facilitated by a forum. A lot of my newer readers won’t be aware of this, so I’m posting it up here until I can get round to doing a perma-link on the site. Therefore, for all your discussion needs, […]

Kneel, Pestilent English Serfs!

A vast nothingness to report. Iron Jackal has not moved on ’cause I’ve been writing the first draft of All Fall Down. Don’t fret, though, it’s still well in hand for the end of the year (he said, with the kind of blithe confidence that makes editors sweat and makes Chris wish he had an […]

New dates: Ret Falls: 26th April 2011 BLC: 26th August 2011 Or for those who don’t want to wait, you can buy them […]

I Am A Sloth

So a month has passed and I’m not exactly sure how, since I seem to be in the same place as when I last blogged. Oh, wait, I know what I did: I edited the first quarter of the Iron Jackal, and now it’s slicker than a greased otter. And I also spent some time […]

Update And Info On Release Dates

Sooo, it appears I have reverted to my lazy blog habits that I hoped to break by revamping this website. Tsk. Trouble is, things move so slowly in the world of writing that I’m lucky if I have one new interesting thing to tell you per month. Otherwise I’d be forced to subject you to […]

Retribution Falls shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award

Squeeeeee! Ret Falls is down to the final six for the Arthur C. Clarke Award. Of course I knew about this for weeks; I just wasn’t allowed to tell you till now. But it still makes me prolapse with joy. Me, me, me! Self, self, self!

WANTED

Says it all, really! I’ll be lurking at Eastercon on Saturday & Sunday. I’m trucking along with The Iron Jackal. Five chapters done out of a predicted forty or so. Ah, it’s so comforting getting back to the world of the Ketty Jay. Like shucking on an old overcoat and finding a dog-end and half […]
