Ever wondered how they cope with steampunk in Brazil? Well, Bruna Camargo can fill you in, but you will need to understand Portuguese Rio-style. Thanks, Bruna.

Jack Cloudie… airship hunting.

Jack Cloudie… airship hunting.

My US Publisher – Tor – is bringing out a hardback version of Jack Cloudie, the 5th fantasy novel in the Jackelian series (I call it a series, but they’re stand-alone novels set in the same world with a few shared characters, a la Terry’s Discworld novels or Iain M Bank’s culture books… as opposed […]

Such titbits as the fact she spent […]

Listen closely T-rex, hear how the dinosaurs howl!

Listen closely T-rex, hear how the dinosaurs howl!

An interesting radio program on the digital future of book publishing from the BBC’s Bottom Line. With the exception of Kobo’s Michael Tamblyn, most of it is the confused howling of Argentinosaurs as they stumble through the nuclear winter following the asteroid’s impact, but a fascinating piece of history, nevertheless. I’ll be doing a longer […]

A poster rises… for ‘Rise of the Iron Moon’.

A poster rises… for ‘Rise of the Iron Moon’.

It’s always interesting to see my readers’ take on the Jackelian novels when it comes to paintings, art, models and the like. Here’s a fine example… a poster designed for Rise of the Iron Moon (the third novel of six in the series). This was produced by Chris Lewis (@c_j_lewis), who is a writer for […]
