What Admin Did Next…
Tomorrow I’ll be signing copies of ‘The Casebook of Bryant & May’ graphic novel with artist Keith Page at the Super London Comic Convention, one of only two zillion authors and artists attending the vast event at the Excel.
I thought this year would be a bumper year for me, with four books out (‘Invisible Ink’, ‘The Casebook of Bryant & May’, ‘Film Freak’ and ‘Bryant & May and the Bleeding Heart’) but it looks like next year will be even bigger, as I’ve just signed a two-book deal with Solaris, publishers of ‘Hell Train’, for a new series – that’s in addition to ‘Bryant & May and the Burning Man’ from Transworld and another novel, ‘There’s Something I Haven’t Told You’, with the publisher yet to be announced, plus possibly another volume of the casebook, my play ‘Falling Stars’, the movie ‘Bloody London’ and ‘The Devil In Darkness’, my radio play for Hammer. Oh, and another play.
If even half of these come off I’ll be pretty busy, so for the time being I’ll be leaving Black Static magazine, although I hope to return to their pages when I get some more free time. I’ll continue my ‘Invisible Ink’ column in the Independent, and my crime reviews in the Financial Times, and there’ll be some other surprises along the way.
But what I really want to do is direct. (Joke).
