A couple more for you. At this rate, my war with my Death Ray back issues will be over by Christmas.

So, here we have an interview with one of my favourite artists, Paul Bonner, and a review of his art collection book, Out of the Forests…


…because I have a lot to do. How fitting that it is this interview from Death Ray 10 with the one and only Adrian Paul, star of the TV version of Highlander.

A favourable review of Baneblade from the Warseer forums.

Baneblade (Guy Haley).

I don’t personally like football much. It never got me. I’m too bookish, I suppose. Despite my desire to be all rugged and manly and doing solo sports and wandering around the countryside like a cut-price Aragorn with my giant dog, I am basically a nerd.

But my littlest brother Ralf loves the footie, and works for some famous ball-footers up Manchester way. There I believe he does something clever in Manchester United’s TV station, like this. All his own work. Good eh?

Some how-to artbooks and that.

From Death Ray 09, a two fantasy artbooks. One of these is by Gary Spence Millidge, no less.

From Death Ray 10, Incredible Comics with Tom Nguyen.

Final Crash cover

Look at this! A finalised, ready-to-go cover for my latest novel from Solaris, Crash. This here’s the front, back, and the unadorned artwork. I like this a lot, it’s very science fiction.


Crash is out in June. I’ll not be specific, as you know, details subject to change and all that. But it’ll be around then. The link will take you to the Amazon UK sales page, where, if you’re of a mind, you can pre-purchase it. Go on, treat yourself. I will be held personally responsible if you hate it.

Here’s the blurb:

The Market rules all, a computer system that plots the rise and fall of fortunes without human intervention. Mankind, trapped by a rigid hierarchy of wealth, bends to its every whim. To function, the Market must expand without end. The Earth is finite, and cannot hold it, and so a bold venture to the stars is embarked upon, offering a rare chance for freedom to a select few people. But when the colony fleet is sabotaged, a small group finds itself marooned upon the tidally-locked world of Nychthemeron, a world where one hemisphere is bathed in perpetual daylight, the other hidden by eternal night. Isolated and beset, the stricken colony members must fight for survival on the hostile planet, while secrets about both the cause of their shipwreck and the nature of Nychthemeron itself threaten to tear their fragile society apart…
