New Story in Revelation 4:1

It's been a long time coming but the latest issue of that gorgeous-looking small press magazine Revelation has just been published. It contains my short story, The Man Who Ate Planets (one of my personal favourites), just one of the four pieces to feature in this issue. If you would like to purchase a copy, then hop over to the site for a little Revelation.

Also imminent is the publication of my story 'Pleasure Units' in the latest issue of Twisted Tongue. This is my second story to be published in their hallowed pages. The first was 'Death's Head', back in issue 3. The PDF versions of this magazine are now free, and print copies (available from Lulu.com) only set you back around £4 or £5.

Steampunk'd


Right now, I am sixty-odd pages into my steampunk novel (and trying to contain my enthusiasm for it), and I was thinking about drawing some of the steampunk machines which are used by the main characters in the story. Typing the word Steampunk into Google, I came upon this site, rather helpfully titled How to draw Steampunk machines. Great stuff.
