    Jennifer Wilde is on Kickstarter

    The Jennifer Wilde point & click adventure game, based on the comic book series I wrote which was published by Atomic Diner Comics, is now up on Kickstarter. I’m also the scriptwriter for this, back with my old buddy Stephen Downey, who is CEO of Outsider Games, and the original artist for the series. The art for the game is being marvellously handled by John McFarlane, and Rodney McConnell is the man wrangling the code. And of course all thanks to Robert Curley, who was the original creator of the concept. If you like the idea of a young art student solving a puzzle with the ghost of Oscar Wilde…

    GoH at Octocon 2015

    I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been invited to be Guest of Honour at Octocon 2015, which is taking place in the Camden Court Hotel from 10 – 11 October 2015. So far the other GoH who has been announced is young adult novelist Emma Newman. I started attending Octocon as a fan, and then progressed to running the convention for a period, so all these years later it means a great deal to me to be a GoH at the convention which was my foundation for sf/fantasy/horror appreciation. The convention seems a long way off at this point, but I’m already looking forward to it.

    Think of a City collaboration

    Think of a City is a very cool on-going mass storytelling project told page by page by artists and writers from around the world. It’s essentially an exquisite corpse project that’s the brainchild of Alison Sampson and Ian MacEwan. Here’s a description: Our project is an opportunity for creators to bring the background to the forefront, and to delve into ideas of setting, place, design, geography, politics, architecture, materiality, mise-en-scène and much more besides, within storytelling. It will take time. Comics provide linear stories, but the urban environment is something different: non linear, multi-layered, complex, communal. We’d like to prove that cities are so much more than cityscapes. Every place…
