Upcoming Appearances


I’ll be appearing in several venues around the country this summer, starting in the capital at Lewisham on Tuesday May 22nd at 8pm, with some London-themed fun. The panel will comprise Craig Taylor (from the excellent ‘Londoners’), me and Tom Jones (from cool website ‘Tired of London, Tired of Life’), and will be chaired by Matt Brown, editor of the terrific Londonist.com.

Next up is the Word 2012 Festival for ‘A Feast of Crime in 3 Courses’ with LC Tyler and Laura Wilson at Islington Central Library on May 23rd at 6:30pm – the last one was great fun, so come along and heckle.

On June 28th I’ll be in Hull at the Humber Mouth Festival with a line-up of Sarah Pinborough, Alison Littlewood and Ramsey Campbell, and on Saturday July 14th I’ll be Guest of Honour at Derby’s ‘Edge’ alt fiction festival at Quad, along with the wonderful Geoff Ryman. Plus I’ll be doing plenty of publicity for ‘Bryant & May and the Invisible Code’ once we’ve locked dates. In September I’ll be at Fantasycon in Brighton – more details on all those dates as they get a little nearer.

    Love that particular illustration.
    And, yes, please do plenty of publicity for the new book. Shall we your readers all whistle the Little Drummer “Boy” by way of encouragement? A-rah-ta-ta-tum, repeats.

    Sometimes it’s really annoying to be on the other side of the planet. How much would I love to be at that Islington gig? Love LC Tyler’s Herrings series.

    Rereading my post comment, I wonder if perhaps I was a bit archaic in my humour or British slang doesn’t have the term “drummer.” A “drummer” is/was an individual salesman, often of books both educational (encyclopedias) or religious, who travels about selling, or taking orders for, what he is selling. (Might also be Hoovers, if not books) For ex., Willy Loman in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman.
    The salesman “drums” on the door to call attention to his wares. Rascally humour intend, hold the snark. Whatever, good luck in selling a lot of books.

    Are you never going to set foot in Salford/Manchester again after your memorably bad experience the last time (blogs passim)????
