More news on upcoming publication will follow; but for the time being (as term continues super-busy and rather hectic) here are some smaller things. Firstly, a podcast I did for Gail Martin's excellent 'Chronicles of the Necromancer' site, about Splinter and the end of the world:
Ah, the fun we had recording that, what with the transatlantic phone line repeatedly giving us ten minutes of talk-time before suddenly cutting out in the middle of recording such that we had to start all over again. But we got there in the end.
Secondly, you can find at The Valve some reviews what-I-wrote of the 2008 Booker Longlist, the 2008 Booker Shortlist (you'll see how cunningly I manage to pay a great deal of attention to all the novels except the one that finally won it) and the 2008 Nobel Prize for Literature.
And finally Simeon Tsanev drops me a line to let me know an interview I did for the Bulgarian bsite Shadowdance has gone live. Ah, the more I see it, the more I come to hate that wikipedia photo of me (an official wikipedia photographer snapped it at the Paris Book Fair earlier this year, on a Saturday when I happened to be dying). Still: ?????????!No tags for this post.
