Pandora SF und Fantasy 04

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

Dropped through my letter-box yesterday: a contributors copy of the latest Pandora. It includes an article by me on Philip K Dick called 'Der obszohne Klecks auf Ihrem Engramm". The content's page follows that article title with 'von Adam Roberts', which presumably means I've joined the German artistocracy. Excellent! Cool John Howe cover, though, what? […]

Keith Brooke, The Unlikely World of Faraway Frankie

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

My contributor copies for this title arrived from Ian Whates' Newcon Press last week (I wrote the short introduction). It's an excellent novel too; certainly one of the very best things this talented author has yet done. If you know what's good for you, you'll want to buy a copy, although the title's amazon page […]


Monday, May 10th, 2010

The latest, which is to say the 196th issue of SFX (out now, in May; so obviously the cover says the issue is 'July 2010') contains a lot of interesting things. But there's also an interview with me, mostly given over to me talking twitter, plus this slightly muppet-faced photo of me sitting on the […]

Guardian Review

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

I knew there was going to be a very short piece by me in today's Guardian Review about Terry Pratchett's Who-related ruminations. I knew that because I wrote the piece on Wednesday (though it doesn't appear to be online ...) What I didn't know, and didn't expect, was that the Guardian would carry the following […]

New Model Army signing

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

I'll be signing copies of New Model Army at Waterstones in High Wycombe, on Saturday the 15th May from 11am. Unaccountably, High Wycombe somehow escaped the depredations of my NMA in the novel itself, although nearby Maidenhead gets hammered. Perhaps the good citizens of High Wycombe wish to thank me for sparing their borough ...? […]

Clarke result

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

... and the winner was: Miéville's The City and the City, as if you didn't know. Ah well: it's a superb novel. The ceremony was as it always is: good to see lots of people there, meet old friends and put faces to a couple of internet names. Stephen Hunt reports that Sean Pertwee was […]
