Double Story Release Bonanza!

I’ve not had much news to share here recently – OK, I could have gone on about winning the BSFA Award, but I kind of blanketed social media with my joy over that at the time – but in the last week I’ve had not one but two stories see print.

Actually, one of them is a reprint, of the very story that won that BSFA Award; ‘Liberty Bird’ has appeared in Newcon Press’s ‘Best of British SF 2016’.

The second story, out today in Maelstrom’s Edge: Escalation, is set in the dark and fascinating space opera world of the Maelstrom’s Edge universe. This world is primarily a gaming one, but its grandees approached a number of SF writers a couple of years back to help them tell some of the stories that occur in their varied and detailed future history, and I had a lot of fun doing so in my gritty not-romance ‘Over You’.

In both cases I’m sharing the bill(s) with some awesome writers: Al Reynolds, Tricia Sullivan, Adam Roberts, Liz Williams, Peter F Hamilton and Aliette de Boddard, to name but a few.

  • Getting ready to come up to London for this: Maybe see some of you there?,
  • Considering which hat to wear for tomorrow's signing at FP, and I checked the weather forecast, which answered my question: a warm one.,
  • If anyone's curious, one of the games I've been writing for came out today: And there's a 'which great general are you?' test here: (I came out as the general whose script I most enjoyed writing, which pleased me),
  • There was this brief moment, earlier this week, when I thought the Giant Orange Manbaby had shown a rare moment of sense, making it slightly harder to increase the bodycount when loonies in the US go on shooting sprees. But no... ,
  • Good work sir. Loved the first so I'm looking forward to this one... ,
