Just so you know, my Greg Mandel e-novella, Family Matters will be available on Amazon UK kindle from tomorrow.
It was the last Greg story written, although chronologically it fits between A Quantum Murder and The Nano Flower.
Family Matters: A Short Story www.amazon.co.uk Richard Townsend would proudly call himself a man of business as he secures a lucrative, though not entirely legal, financial deal. What he believes to be easy money turns his life into a nightmare when detective Amanda Patterson knocks on his door to arrest him under suspicion of murdering the l...
Countdown for UK publication. And keep an eye out for a competition we're launching on Facebook this week for The Abyss Beyond Dreams. Sam, my publicist, came up with an idea that's... interesting.

Goodbye Loncon3, I made it home and am now recovering. Several authors, myself included, realised that as far as beer and wine are concerned publishers are already living in a post-scarcity society. Nice while you're in the bar with them, but...
I enjoyed the panels, which were uniformly well attended -thanks to those who turned up- and I think I was only stumped by a couple of your questions.
Got off the DLR at the wrong end of the convention centre, wow that is a long walk.
Signed many books, including three more UK hardbacks of The Reality Dysfunction. After 18 years, I think we are now firmly into the territory of the rare unsigned edition.
Talked to more people than I can remember. Received some intriguing invitations -on which more more later when everything has been confirmed, but it does look like I'll be visiting the US at some point next year.
Who knows, I might even do it all over again sometime.

Some people (such as "Dave" in the guestbook) noticed that Pandora's star was pulled from Audible, and wondered why this happened. It turns out that there have been some complaints about the sound quality of that recording. For that reason, the book was temporarily removed from the Audible store until the engineers have fixed this.
