Man O’War Bookstream Delayed

I got word this week that the Man O’War Bookstream, which was due to begin streaming on Monday, is going to be postponed by at least a week after (drum roll…..) Covid has struck one of the actors in the production. Bravo, Covid, now you’re striking against the people who are innovating ways to get around you.

I’m in touch with Bookstreamz and will post any updates as they come.

It may be that there will have to be a recasting of a role or two depending on how circumstances play out, but for the moment, like so much else right now, we wait.

On another topic, I was going to start posting a series of “Long Reads” covering topics such as literature, books, a bit of culture and politics, from today. But given the MOW Bookstream will be delayed, I’ll post the first long read on Monday to fill the gap. The first one will be about walls – after listening to parts of Pink Floyd’s The Wall while out for a run, I bricked together a connection with Herman Melville’s novella Bartleby, The Scrivener. So that’s coming on Monday.

Enjoy the weekend!

Away from the page, I work for the UK Space Agency on a European programme of space robotics for advanced satellite and planetary exploration technologies. All of which comes in rather handy when coming up with new ideas for science fiction stories. My first novel Man O’War was published in 2018 by Snowbooks, and I’ve had a few short stories published hither and yon. I’m a member of the Society of Authors and a supporter of SFFChronicles. I was born in Forest Gate, east London, and now live in Essex with my wife and two daughters.
