Hair Cut One Hundred

Hair Cut One Hundred

Well, I’ve just invested in a pair of hair clippers for a quarantine cut, and if things go wrong next week, I might have to start rocking the China Miéville-look – although not half as alluring as the author of Perdido Street Station, obviously (I’d end up more of a Poundstore Kojak if matters slip sideways). On the work front, […]

Better to be lucky than good?

Better to be lucky than good?

When the current COVID-19 situation started to bite, I wasn’t one of the people scrambling for toilet rolls, cans of baked beans, and finding locating an in-stock facemask as hard as putting socks on a rooster. This is because I’d already done my panic buying in late December last year. I’d spotted what was happening […]

Shining suns and free books!

Shining suns and free books!

Well, the sun is shining, the day is beautiful, and – probably – like you, I’m experiencing a little more staying-at-home than even a geeky self-employed author with a home office and passion for the noble pursuits of genre TV, reading, model kit making, and computer games is comfortable with! I’ll forgo swapping pandemic stories […]

The Beginning is only the End.

The Beginning is only the End.

So, I’ve been watching the new Picard series (thanks Amazon Prime) and more or less enjoying it – good FX, a decent if slow-burn story, and, of course, lashings of Jean-Luc. My main complaint is that to re-spin the show for modern sensibilities, they’ve jettisoned a few of the core concepts from the original series. […]

Empty Between the Stars: a new science fiction novel hits the book stores.

Surprise – I’ve just released a new science fiction novel called Empty Between the Stars! Empty Between the Stars is a science fiction adventure set in a universe where A.I.s are gods and mankind a fairly reduced force in the great scheme of things. So far, readers have told me it has put them in mind of […]

Star Trek Discovery vs Godzilla.

Star Trek Discovery vs Godzilla.

Well, it’s been a 12-year gap since Star Trek Enterprise finished and the new Star Trek Discovery beamed back down onto our TV screens. Ironically, that long gap led to the technological ascendance of streaming and an odd conundrum. Discovery is on Netflix in the UK, Europe and just about everywhere except the USA, where […]

Stephen Hunt, Genre Buster?

Stephen Hunt, Genre Buster?

Sometimes you choose the title and other times the title chooses you. One of my readers, Sam Briggs (thanks, Sam), sent in this link to an article that U.S. book store chain Barnes & Noble wrote about one of my novels – the first in the seven-book Jackelian series, The Court of the Air. Apparently […]
