OK, I ask for forgiveness, but I have submitted: I have started up a blog... :cry:

Check out In the Plane of the Ecliptic.

Also, over the weekend (while I was away) I received my contributor copies (I ordered a few extra) of HUB #2, which contains -- among many other things -- my story "Transcendence Express".

You have been warned!

My short story Dr. Kulik’s Folly, which first appeared in Aphelion in 2003 has been reprinted in an Argentine webzine called <a href="http://ar.geocities.com/e_ditores.contenido/x001_e.html"><span style="font-size:12"> Xenoliteraria </span> </a> with the Spanish text alongside the original English. Check it out – it’s free to read.

I couldn't find it Colin though I didn't try Aphelion.

A google on Xenoliteraria found

A search on Dr. Kulik’s Folly also drew a blank.

I have the greatest pleasure in announcing that my story, For you Faustine, will be in the most wonderful Triquorum, edited by the equally marvellous Mr Chris Teague!

Just added to the Wicked Stories section of the Whispers of Wickedness website (www.ookami.co.uk), my story "The Conquest of the Earth"

This is in fact a historic event (humour me), in that it's a reprint of my very first published story (excluding the school magazine). "Conquest" originally appeared in Jennings Magazine #6 in 1987. It took 2nd place in their SF Contest and I got £50 for it. 1st place went to Stephen Baxter with, I believe, his first ever published story, but his was much longer than mine, so I got the higher word rate :)

In fact, given the brevity of the story, I don't think I've ever gotten a higher word rate since, which is kind of depressing if I dwell on it. It was supposed to be the start of a glorious (and lucrative) career :lol: :lol: :lol:

The clock is ticking down to the launch of my debut Dark/SF/F novel 'Flames of Herakleitos'. It takes place in The Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea at 7pm tomorrow night (Friday 23rd March) where my publisher, Steve Upham and I will be plying any unfortunate soul who turns up with copious amounts of free wine and free music in the hope of lowering their guard enough to sell them a book or three...

Some big names have promised to turn up, such as, Rhys Hughes, Steve Lockley, Paul Lewis, Mike O'Driscoll, Chris Teague and Engineer Ntembocombasumara of Nigeria who emailed me regarding the transfering of Twenty One Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars into my account for safe keeping as he's having trouble opening his own bank account here in the UK. I'm going to get 10% for just helping him out and of course paying the set-up fees of two thousand pounds (which I've already sent). Can't wait to meet him, especially as he has the biggest name of all....

So, if you're around Swansea at the above time please drop in :)

The book is already on Amazon here:


http://www.amazon.co.uk/Flames-Herakleitos-Bob-Lock/dp/0955518512/ref=pd_rhf_p_2/203-1231817-9692726

And, oh, by-the-way Engineer Ntembocombasumara of Nigeria said he's a good friend of Steven Spielberg and is willing to contact him regarding turning ' Flames' into a film, however, he needs to meet the director in person, so I'll have to raise another four thousand to send him to The States, so I really need to sell loads of books, please come... :roll:

Well the book launch went better than anyone expected, quite a large number of guests turned up, many old friends and a number of new ones too. David Woolley, poet and director of The Dylan Thomas Centre kicked off the evening with an introduction and then I gave a nervous opening speech explaining how the book came to be and thanking all those involved in getting it out to the unsuspecting public.
Lots of big names turned up on the night, but I was disaapointed to hear that Engineer Ntembocombasumara of Nigeria had been arrested for 'Crimes against the naive and gullible' however, there is a ' fighting fund' being set up for him and should you wish to donate a little something please email me. (I already have) :P

This photo is the group of 'heavies' who volunteered to guard the wine table, as you can see, it worked, Rhys Hughes is nowhere to be seen...
They are: Steve Lockley, Mike O'Driscoll, Paul Lewis, Bob Lock, Steve Upham, Chris Teague, Ian Simmons and Brian Willis.



Oh, wait here's Rhys he is calling out the Bingo

Image

No, actually he was reciting a very amusing poem of his about Vikings, thanks Rhys, much appreciated :)

So, all in all a great night and The Dylan Thomas Centre is an excellent place for a venue such as this.

More photos and stuff over on my Blog.

Congratulations and hope the book goes OK.
