I lost my father last week so please bear with me until I'm back up to speed around these parts. Obviously not the best of times, but I'm fortunate to have a wonderful wife and family around me, not to mention many good friends.
I've disabled comments for now, not realising that this would delete all existing comments in previous entries. However it may well be that I keep it this way from now on, as I wasn't brilliant at responding to comments to begin with, and - let's face it - this isn't really a blog in the usual sense. I can still be emailed, so there's still a communication channel open for feedback.
Finished and delivered "The Old Man and the Martian Sea", which should appear in Jonathan Strahan's forthcoming YA anthology "Life on Mars", sometime in 2010. Also: "Sleepover", which will appear in "The Mammoth Book of Apocalyptic SF", edited by Mike Ashley, again in 2010.
Enjoying: "Kingdom of Rust", Doves.
