Coode Street Podcast

Over the weekend I recorded a Coode Street Podcast with the inestimable Jonathan Strahan and Gary Wolfe. Always great fun, and we touched on a lot of topics, including REVENGER.

Unfortunately laptop hassle meant I had to switch to a backup machine at short notice, and the sound quality on my voice isn't the best at times. Hopefully you can still get some sense out of my ramblings.

Thanks to Jonathan and Gary for having me on the podcast.

Tour dates

My good friend Peter Hamilton and I both have new books coming out so we're doing some joint signing sessions through the UK. Unfortunately it wasn't possible for me to synch up with Peter for all the dates on his side of the tour, but we're showing up together for the following joint events:

Monday 26th September: Waterstones Birmingham, at noon.
Waterstones Nottingham, talk and Q&A, 7pm.
Tuesday 27th September: Waterstones Sheffield, (city centre) a signing at noon.
Waterstones Leeds, talk and Q&A, 7pm
Wednesday 28th September: Waterstones Newcastle a talk, 7pm.
Thursday 29th September: Waterstones Manchester Deansgate, a signing at 12.30pm
Waterstones Liverpool One: Talk and Q&A, 7pm.

I don't normally get as far north as places like Leeds and Newcastle, so if you haven't managed to get to one of my signing events in the South, now's your chance.

These are the events with Peter and I; if you can't make those dates or want to catch Peter on his own, he's doing the following extra dates:

Friday 23rd September: a signing at Forbidden Planet, London; 6-7pm.
Saturday 24th September: signing at Waterstones Canterbury; noon.
Waterstones Guildford: Talk/reading and Q&A 7pm.
Sunday 25th September: Waterstones Swindon, signing at noon.
Saturday 1st October, I'll be at Titancon Belfast.

(and possibly more - check out Peter's Facebook page for info):

I'll also be attending the Gollancz Festival this coming weekend:

And I'll be making an appearance at New Scientist's big live event at the ExCel centre, London, on the afternoon of 23rd of September, where I'll be discussing The Future with Warren Ellis.

We're trying to firm up an additional signing event in the South West, so I'll post details here when it's comfirmed.
