The paperback edition of The Tiger and the Wolf is now on the shelves, and so I’m following my own recent tradition of dream-casting the not-at-all-happening movie of the film.Shadows of the Apt and Children of Time, would have difficulty translating to screen, I think – the former because of the high-concept axioms of the fantasy work, […]
Spiderlight is out today! And getting some very nice reviews, for which I and all the little spiders are properly grateful. The book gets a mention in Leah Schnelbach’s “fiction’s greatest spiders” article here (can you believe someone beat me to that article?), I sneak into Barnes & Noble’s new release list (along with Emma Newman’s new Split […]
I am up to my eyeballs with stuff right at this moment, principally Tiger & Wolf book 3 (tentatively The Hawk and the Hyena? Does that work? I keep thinking “handsaw” Beats “The Owl and the Pussycat” which was the working title for a while) but however I take a break to bring you Tidings […]
Or TFW you can’t come up with a clever blog title (1). I have not done bloggery as I should, owing to other stuff to have been doing (25% through The Hawk and the (some other animal) as I write) and so a number of separate posts on stuff I’ve stumbled over and liked are going […]

Just a few of my #shapechallenge doodles from March. In other news; just about to start the third and last Tiger & Wolf book. Proper post soon, hopefully.
One of the recurrent topics at cons is whether e-publishing will impact on the publication of shorter fiction. Thus far: not so much insofar as I’ve seen. Although it is now quite possible to, say, sell a single short story as an e-book(let?) on Amazon, nobody seems to be saying this is a big thing […]
Busybusy with secret projects, but here’s a thing to be going on with.
Further to previous posts about wanting to get back into the drawing game, I discovered a rather neat little artist challenge on Twitter known as #ShapeChallenge. This is a diversion helmed by Studio TeaBreak (@virtualstudio) that I first found through Sarah McIntyre (who, with Phillip Reeve, creates such wonderful books as Cakes in Space and Pugs of the […]
