Just playing around

As you can see, I have finally got off my fat arse and done something that hundreds of readers of my books have been e-mailing in and asking for, and that’s introduce my own personal blog.

I did have a blog on my magazine over at www.SFcrowsnest.com, but it was a small third party script that getting hacked, and in the end I reluctantly had to pull it.

This little puppy is rolled using WordPress – version 3.0, no less, the day it went live – mainly because lots of my programmer friends told me how great it is (that’s you, Chris!), so I thought some experience coding around the edges of the application might come in useful.

With so many people using it, hopefully any security holes will get patched up quick, although I’m dreading the war against comment spam kicking off here.

We’ll see.

Anyway, hopefully this is will be the first post of many more (the post before this was my ‘hello world’ so doesn’t count).



I am an author of various fantasy, science fiction, crime and other genre books from Gollancz, Hachette and HarperCollins. Some day I hope to grow up and be an astronaut. Exploring Mars would be nice.

    Hi Stephen, glad to see your blog online again. I used to follow it on your magazine site and was sad to see it go. WordPress is fairly solid as far as being a blogging platform is concerned.

    Good luck with holding back all the nonsense marketing posts!
