My long delayed and ultra top secret sports project is on the brink of being unleashed and it’s an absolute monster, having consumed far more of my time than I thought it ever would.
Every time I thought I’d nailed the last piece, three or four more new things would need adding.
Now, I’ve decided to draw a line under the first edition and anything else can go in post launch. It’s actually had some good feedback from my little circle of test subjects … I mean readers, but believe me when I say I’ll be glad to get this out the door. Watch this space for launch details!
Elsewhere, I’m really pleased to be a guest of the splendid Bristol Horror Convention on Saturday the 17th October where I’ll be doing a little talk at 1pm.
I’ll be performing a couple of readings and in conversation with long time friend and fellow Cthulhu aficionado David J Rodger, discussing writing, horror, dark elder gods, the ruinous cost of biscuits and whatever else takes our fancy – there’ll be audience interaction, a Q&A, a ritual sacrifice and the odd free gift – hope to see you there!
Finally ICYMI – I wrote a little piece for Gizmodo called Cthulhu: The Beginner’s Guide. Lovecraft devotees and horror vets probably won’t find much to surprise them here, but I’d humbly suggest it might worth a read as it tries to explain the appeal of HP and how a niche American writer rose to have such a profound effect on books, comics, movies and every facet of the modern horror genre.
That’s all for now – more updates coming soon!
