My Satellite 5 schedule

Satellite 5 – not long now!

In just over a week I’ll be heading up to Glasgow to be the author guest of honour at Satellite 5. I’m really looking forward to it (except the bit where I have to get up at sparrow-fart to catch the plane). If you’re anywhere in the vicinity, do join me: as well as my […]

Or perhaps as an exploration of selflessness through conflict. Or maybe a mystery thriller where the mystery stretches human comprehension. Actually, I’d rather not try and […]

If you’re in the Midlands this Friday…

… why not come on down to the NN Gallery in Northampton for 7pm, where I’ll be appearing with Ian Whates, Stephanie Saulter and Donna Scott to discuss the future of humans in space? We’ll be doing readings too, as part of the gallery’s current show’ They Shall Have Stars’. And it’s all free! There’s more […]

Bristolcon rocks!

I’m really looking forward to being one of the Guests of Honour at Bristolcon on Saturday 26th. My fellow Guests will be artist Chris Moore, and Jasper Fforde (note to self: do not fan-girl Jaspar Fforde), and there will be many other writers, artists and generally interesting people there too. Here’s what I’m up to: 10am […]
