SF event at Ayewrite Festival Sunday 7th March at Glasgow’s Mitchell Library

Leading science fiction and fantasy novelists Richard Morgan, Ken MacLeod, Hal Duncan and Mike Cobley discuss the shape of things to come with editor and critic Andrew J. Wilson.  Can things only get better or do we have to look over a mountain of rubble to see beyond the next fifty years?  Scottish writers are leading a renaissance in British speculative fiction, but does our national identity have any future at all? Join the panel for a lively debate punctuated with short, sharp and shocking stories and some very special surprise guests.

You can buy tickets on the site here.

Storyshop postscript

So Storyshop was awesome. Really enjoyed it. Managed to write a brand new story that had no swearing, sex or violence. I’d been reading about coastal erosion and had just watched (for the first time since I was a kid) that version of ‘Whistle and I will come to you’ starring Michael Hordern. I’d forgotten how awesome the adaptation was. So spooky and atmospheric. Well worth seeing if you haven’t already. And if you haven’t read the story either, do so, MR James is one of the finest ghost story writers Britain has ever produced. You won’t regret it. So the point of this is that I wrote a classic ghost story inspired by the above. Just need a home for it now.

I killed my site

I’m such a doofus! I killed my site the other week and had to get a pal to resurrect it for me. I’m all for things coming back from the dead, especially when it’s my website! Anyway, realise I’ve not posted for an age so expect some rapid updates in the next wee while.
