ITEM! Seems my work will be sharing space in a graphic novel with some very esteemed company. Amazon is advertising a Fiends of the Eastern Front paperback collection for October 2010, gathering the classic 1980 B&W serial by Gerry Finley-Day and Carlos Ezquerra with the belated follow-up FotEF: Stalingrad by Colin MacNeil and me. You can read more about the book by going here.
ITEM! Carlos Ezquerra is the artist guest of honour at this year's British Science Fiction Convention, Eastercon 2010 a.k.a. Odyssey 2010. The event is being held April 2-5 [over the Easter weekend, natch] at the Radisson Edwardian Hotel, alongside London's Heathrow Airport. Why am I telling you this? Because I'll be interviewing Carlos live on stage at Odyssey. More details here.
ITEM! My wife is entering Race For Life again this year, making her fifth attempt on the north face of the Eiger [better known as the road that goes up and around Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh]. All proceeds go to Cancer Research UK. Time's are tough, but if you've ever gotten something useful from this blog, donate here. In the comments section tell 'em Vicious Imagery sent you!
ITEM! Last but certainly not least, I now have representation. The lovely Katie Williams at Blake Friedmann Literary Agency has added me to her list. I signed my paperwork yesterday after meeting with Katie in That Fancy London last Monday. This will open doors for my writing and achieves one of the last items left on a list of goals I set myself three years ago. Onwards!
