Legion That Was – Fancast (Part Two)

Because one half of it wasn’t enough for one weekend. Let the fuckery continue down below: Publius Cascana – Paul McGann Given my intense childhood interests, to be honest, I’m surprised that there aren’t more stars from the Whoniverse on this list. Not-Withnail was in fact someone who ran through my head for a host […]

Legion That Was – Fancast (Part One)

Welcome… To the most pointless, banal and self-indulgent blogpost to ever come out of this pointless, banal and self-indulgent blog. But hey, it’s what you come here for. This was something I started for fun a little while ago, meaning to share it a lot earlier – before Legion was published, almost certainly – but […]

A Dark, Dark Day…

How… The fuck… Did it come to this? TikTok is a social media platform I’ve always believed was for Gen Zers, that no-one my age should ever be on, let alone posting content on. I can barely keep my official Facebook and Twitter accounts afloat, and I long swore that I’d never have anything to […]

A Bloggiversary and a Milestone

Another month, another rather longer absence than I expected. Hey now, I’m shambolic but at least I’m consistent. As Mr Eliot once said, April really can be the cruellest month sometimes. I was genuinely hoping that March and April would have a few more posts than my habitual one-a-month, but as is depressingly usual, sudden […]

Ode to an Odyssey – Have A Free Story!

Hello all! Apologies, once again, for another record-breaking hiatus. (Well, okay, 6 weeks for me isn’t quite record-breaking, but the point still stands). I’m resurfacing now winter has finally passed with a little bit of news. Remember that 1500 word story on the theme of Troy, that I wrote for the LSA Classical Competition? Well, […]

Stories Two, (Half-baked) Ideas Several

February is here! January blues are (apparently) behind us. The cold weather, sadly, isn’t. I wouldn’t mind quite so much if the weather was at least consistent – but frankly, days that alternate between 2⁰C all the way to above 10⁰C make planning your time ahead that bit more frustrating. Particularly if you have a […]

Aquilifer is Out!

Again, not a particularly lengthy post, but just a little heads-up to say that my short story, Aquilifer, is finally out as an eBook on Amazon! For the small price of £0.99 you can devour the 6000ish words and find out what Orbus and Brauda get up to in the weeks following the end of […]

2500 Hits… Last Week

Well. Shit. This kind of snuck up on me when I wasn’t looking. In the chasm of time since my last blog, I’d kind of forgotten how much the follower count tends to jump each time I post (more because I retweet each one too and post it on my official Facebook than any other […]

A New Year’s Update

Well. So much for getting back to blogging regularly. For real, the title of this post was originally going to be An Autumnal Update. But then, as time slunk by and the year turned, I begrudgingly retitled it to A Winter Update. But still, it isn’t quite 2022 yet, and I suppose that is something. […]

Hardback and Sides…

Yup, just when you think the hardback puns couldn’t get any worse. So this arrived in the post a few days ago, which rather feels like the final milestone on my first self-publishing journey. This is the third format the novel is now out in – the first two being eBook and paperback – and […]
