Carta Mundi, and a little extra news

Firstly, I am very happy to present a complete (to date) set of maps for the world of the Insect-kinden here – and when I say complete, I include a map of the Commonweal, as a sneak preview from Heirs of the Blade. For the news, very briefly: Rebis, one of my all-time favourite publishers, […]

Very brief post to confirm the Oxford Waterstones signing on the 9th April will be a 2pm. Tomorrow for the Leeds Waterstone alongside Robson, Remic & McMahon, please do come along if you can.

My Life for the Forseeable Future: Events

The next few months have suddenly turned busy, as a number of threatened signings and events have materialised. So, here’s the social calendar: 4th-5th February – SFX Weekender convention at Camber Sands. 11th February – signing stock for Forbidden Planet and Blackwells bookshop in London – not an actual signing but there will be signed […]

Rough Signing Schedule for February

This is about as rough as things get, and may be only inside my own head, but: 1st weekend of February, 4-6th, is the SFX Weekender, so I’ll be there doing stuff, and probably also signing. 2nd weekend, 12-13th should see me in Reading or Oxford or both, or something like that, probably on the […]

Dates for the Diary

I appear to have Stuff On already for the next few months, and so: 1. I will be asking pertinent questions of Iain M Banks at the Morley Literature Festival on the 15th October (next week). All a bit short notice and the actual event was fully booked out before I was even signed up, […]

Other Worlds, November 6th, Derby

I’t s been a while since I last posted, and this is because the final proofs for Sea Watch have turned up, and this last stage of the publication process that I get involved in is intensive, time-consuming and conducted to a strict deadline. The draft I had of book 7 is also back in the […]

Big Enough to Choke a Bear…

Was my first thought when I got a big ol’ box of The Scarab Path from Tor UK this week. Yes, I did write it, but I had no idea it would be so enormous in print. Anyone who felt they were missing some pages from Blood of the Mantis will find them in Scarab […]

The Dawn of a New Age

Yes, yes, not been posting much recently, but busy with the book, don’tcherknow. Or books, to be precise. Book 5 (The Scarab Path), which has been running a bit late, has finally been packed off, and I won’t see it again until it’s actually in print (release date start August). Book 6 (The Sea Watch) has […]
