Well, my first radio play has now been broadcast [and repeated] on Radio 4 here in the UK. If you missed Island Blue: Ronald, you can still hear it online for the next six days by virtue of the BBC's wonderful Listen Again service.

Not much else to report at the mo. Had lots of lovely emails and phone calls from people who heard the play yesterday. I've been given the nod for a couple of projects, but won't consider them to be real until I've signed the contracts. Three episodes of the Fiends in Stalingrad still to be scripted. Second part has now been published and is still getting a strong, positive response - mostly thanks to Colin MacNeil's stunning art. The first two episodes are more like an extended prologue, I can see now, but the pedal hits the metal from part three and stays there.
Started researching a new story idea that could be interesting to write. Not sure if it's best suited to radio or a more visual medium, but am letting the ideas bubble away while I progress other jobs. Off on holiday from Saturday week, so I've got seven working days to finish all urgent tasks before then.
Holidays are the only guilt-free opportunity I have to do some non-research reading, so I'm looking for suggestions about what to take with me to France. Anybody read any good books lately? What do people recommend as their favourite novels? I'm open to most suggestions...
