So far it goes like this Jan-June: Finish writing Thief’s Magic July: Start writing Angel of Storms Late Oct-Early Nov: World Fantasy Con in Brighton, UK Mid Nov: Continue writing Angel of Storms But […]

10 Books I Enjoyed in 2012

I’m not a fast reader these days, so I only get through between 25 and 30 books a year. I have a to-read bookcase of about 120 books which never seems to diminish, thanks to those few writers whose next book I always have to buy, my publisher giving me books, friends giving me their […]

What Are the Odds?

It’s that time of year. People are feeling reflective and that inevitably leads to lots of Best Book of 2012 and Most Anticipated Fantasy of 2013 blog posts and articles – and analysis of their content. Last week someone on Twitter noted the lack of women writers on the latter, and I started to wonder […]

Epic: Legends of Fantasy

I’m still catching up on posts I couldn’t publish while this site was being fixed. Most frustrating of all was not being able to get this one blogged. I could have posted it while I was at Supanova, but then it might have disappeared too quickly among posts about the expos. Better to wait and […]

December Calender – Akkarin

Well, of course I saved him ’til last. 1920×1080 (or 1600×900) 1600×1200 (or 1024×768) 1600×1000 Click on the image to get to a full size version. As before, if you don’t know how to download and set images to be your computer screen wallpaper, seek the help of your usual source of computer advice.

Supanova Adelaide – the Party

The theme of the VIP cocktail party was Moulin Rogue. After admiring all the costuming during the day, it was fun to have a chance to dress up. Paul brought along an instamatic camera, which is always entertaining. (I call it faux-instagram.) Me & Missy Felicity & me Jo & Ineke Me, Howard & ? […]

Supanova Adelaide – At the Expo

After having such a great time at Supanova in Brisbane, I did wonder if Supanova in Adelaide could live up to it. But it did – in spades. And this time I didn’t catch camnesia. (However, I did catch the con bug, and have been a bit under the weather since I got back.) I […]

Supanova Brisbane 2012

Last week I headed up to Brisbane to join in the fun at Supanova. Arriving on Thursday, I had dinner with the guests who had also already arrived, and found myself at the end of the table chatting to Howard Chaykin and Tom Felton. The next day I did some shopping, heading to The Pen […]

Supanova!

Supanova Brisbane is only a week away! And Supanova Adelaide only two weeks away! I keep looking at the awesome line-up of stars and muttering ‘Wow!’ under my breath. Go look. That slide show of amazing guests goes on and on and on. My humble self will be at the Dymocks stand with my signing […]

November Calendar – Savara

Over the last month or so I’ve been arranging, with the help of the lovely people at Orbit, to have all my internetty stuff moved to a new hosting service. The old company didn’t have the most recent version of something which meant I couldn’t upgrade WordPress, which meant my website was not particularly secure. […]
