So, last night I turned up on TV after a fairly long absence, yattering on about Bryant & May and not looking quite as dorky as I thought I would, although what I was thinking when I donned that T-shirt I don’t know, ‘cos I didn’t really think about what I should wear on telly.
This is according to Time Out:
‘Greenwich-born thriller writer Fowler, whose latest book, ‘Plastic’, follows a shopaholic housewife in her 24-hour demise to homelessness, discusses ‘Film Freak’, a new volume in his memoirs.’
This is concerning my appearance this coming week on Thursday October 3rd at Welwyn Garden City Library, and came as a bit of a [...]
I’ve always been a bit of an outsider, even when I’ve had hit novels. I’m certainly not one of those authors with a career plan. This year, though, has been unusual for me. First, a CWA Dagger nomination, and now selection for the ITV3 Crime Thriller Awards, the run-up to which is currently being televised. I’ve [...]
This being the start of the Autmun book season, I’ll be doing several gigs around the country.
Feel free to come along to any of these events and say the usual things; ‘You’re much older than I thought you’d be,’ ‘I loved your first book – you were very good in those days,’ and the ever-popular [...]

Why did it take six years to get a novel published? I’ll be talking to Joanne Harris at Foyles and signing [...]
It’s not enough to write and live quietly behind the covers of your books anymore. In an ideal world you also need to have been a stripper. I remember seeing the cover shot of Sebastian Junger, author of ‘The Perfect Storm’, and thinking ‘I can’t do this anymore, he looks like a movie star!’ He [...]
Just a reminder that on Thursday May 16th, Michael Moorcock, Peter Milligan, Mike Carey, Roger Langridge and I will be helping to launch TRIPWIRE 21 and an exhibition at Foyles in Charing Cross Road, London at 6.30pm, price £5 / £3. I shall be attempting to avoid geekiness and hide my awe at the illustrious company and [...]
What, in all honesty, does a fiver buy you?
It doesn’t quite cover the cost of a pint of lager and a packet of nuts.
But on May 16th you can turn this fiver into something cool.
Back in 1992, TRIPWIRE started out with a mission to become the UK’s leading comics/ genre magazine. Its emphasis on British [...]
