So it seems this is now all official and out-in-the-open. Dave Hutchinson, a writer I admire enormously (and I'm pleased to say, a friend) and I have been collaborating on a series of books for Rebellion. This is "The Aftermath" set a century or so after a massive meteor shower wrecked civilisation, as communities slowly struggle out of basic survival into rebuilding something more sustainable. Dave wrote the first volume, Shelter (available 12 June 2018, don't you know); and I've written vol 2, Haven, pictured above. I'll give you more information as and when Rebellion say I'm allowed ...

    Are we supposed to be dazzled by your brilliance or your intelligence? lol

    (The Guardian quotes don't match.)

    And if that sounds too nitpicky, congratulations and I look forward to the book's release.

    Paul: um ... OK? I mean it's 'invention' not intelligence, and I'm not sure what you mean by 'don't match', but I'm take from your comment that you find the blurb laughable? I daresay it is, though putting it up there was Rebellion's call, not mine.

    Sorry, I hope I didn't offend. I was comparing the blurb here with the blurb on BY THE PRICKING OF HER THUMB. I probably wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't called our attention to the misplaced apostrophe in that one.

    Tremendous! Should be a great one-two punch. I went to school with Dave Hutchinson, but as he's now a Presbyterian minister in California, I suspect yours is the other one. In any case, I was very happy when THE BLACK PRINCE got fully funded on Unbound. Now I'm hoping that your friend's AS THE CROW FLIES eventually sees the same fate.
