Sat, 27 February 2010 dear Alexandra

This blog post began as a reply to a comment made by horror writer and screenwriter, Alexandra Sokoloff, on my last blog entry, but got too long. It’s probably best if you read that first before continuing with this entry.
I’ll wait.
Back? Great. Here’s what my couple of lines morphed into:
Dear Alexandra,
Thank you for your [...]

Thu, 11 February 2010 talking arts

I’ll be interviewed this afternoon, around 1.30pm, by Claire O’Mahony, as part of her weekly “Arts Brew” cultural programme, on Z103, an Internet radio.
We’ll be discussing the arts and its relationship with the Internet, although I believe Claire will be quizzing me a little about writing horror as well.

Wed, 23 September 2009 faster than the speed of bus

We live in a fast-paced world.
Yesterday morning, while finishing up work before my trip to Dublin, I received an email query from Alison Flood, a journalist for the British newspaper The Guardian. She wanted my opinion about the exclusion of women from the BFS In Conversation interview collection, and how the situation played out.
I [...]

Mon, 21 September 2009 BFS apologises for forgetting women

It’s worth mentioning that Guy Adams, Chair and Special Publications Editor for the British Fantasy Society (BFS), has issued an unreserved apology over omitting women from its latest collection.
I’m sure he will not chastise me for replicating it in full here:
Our new book, In Conversation: A Writer’s Perspective, Volume 1: Horror, edited by [...]

Thu, 17 September 2009 Horror wants women to scream, but not talk

This weekend the British Fantasy Society (BFS) is hosting its annual convention, Fantasy Con. Last night while on Facebook I noticed a news item, which constitutes an electronic “flyer”, about the convention.
I immediately noticed the cover of a new book the BFS is launching at the convention: a collection of interviews with writers (the first [...]

Wed, 29 April 2009 catching up

The past three weeks have been hectic, and my weekly Thursday Twitterfic lapsed during this period, but as it happens a bunch of my twitter stories hit the web so here are links to them:
There are two stories, here and here, on Thaumatrope, and a pico story on Outshine.
During Easter my poem “Exchange” went live [...]

Thu, 02 April 2009 something for the weekend

Another Thursday, another piece of micro-fiction in under 140 characters:
The rooms of this great house are as familiar as the chambers of my dead heart. I walk in echoes, stir dust, and pine for the key’s rattle.
Last week was busy, but very enjoyable.
The question and answer session on “Writing Horror” last Thursday with Kim [...]

Thu, 26 March 2009 a Dublin weekend

I’m travelling to Dublin today. I’ll be interviewing Kim Newman on the subject of “Writing Horror” for members of the Irish Playwrights and Screenwriters Guild later in the evening. I’ve been prepping for it this week, but since Kim is an authority on the genre I expect I’ll only have to nudge him with the [...]
