November Roundup

November was very busy! The SFF Chronicles podcast, Chronscast, continues to get ready for our January launch, and we recorded another episode at the back end of November. This second episode was with the lovely Jo Zebedee, author of the Abendau Trilogy and Inish Carraig. We discussed Klara And The Sun, which I wrote about not so long ago.

Meanwhile, our guest from the first episode, Stephen Palmer, will be back around these parts this week. He is kindly stopping by here this Wednesday to post up a guest blog post to promote his new novel Monique Orphan. ||||||||||||||||||||||||||

For any members of Chrons (or anyone who isn’t a member but wishes to join – remember, it’s free) who wish to be a part of the podcast, we have announced that the winning participants from the Chrons writing challenges, starting with this December’s challenge, will have the opportunity to record their winning entries and have them played on the podcast. For full details, pop down to Chrons and sign up.

The podcast is keeping me honest with my reading; I’ve just read Mythago Wood by Rob Holdstock, and have starting reading Dune for the first time in twenty-five years, having seen Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation last month at the BFI IMAX.

I finished publishing my adventure novella The Gigantomachy Of Antonios Costas, and have stickied it to the top of the blog under the novellas heading. I’m jotting down some ideas for a new novella, and may publish another novella in the new year, a weird fiction piece called The Rings Of Saturn.

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.
