richardsreality.com has been updated, with new info, extra photographs, and an extended bibliography. Shame to lose the wonderful Paul Lowe covers from my Home Page — for ‘Postcards from Terri’ and ‘Ghost Dance’ — but Sarob Press is, alas, no more. And besides, ‘PfT’ and ‘Under the Ice’ (from ‘Ghost Dance’) are now available in paperback, in ‘No-Man and Other Tales’. There’ll be another brief update when ‘Passport to Purgatory’ comes out. And then I plan a big expansion of the site next Autumn, when ‘Dark Raine’ hits the bookstands.
Disaster strikes part deux (or should that be d’oh?). I was due to attend, on consecutive nights, the Crime Writers’ Assocation Xmas bash, and the British Fantasy Society’s equally festive open evening, with my new collection ‘No-Man and Other Tales’ being launched at the latter. And I had to miss both due to an injured back. My social life has not been what it should be for the past couple of months. Roll on 2008.
My forthcoming novel ‘Dark Raine’ has now become ‘Dark Rain’. It’s always sad when a good, hard-working E loses its job, but such is life. I’m hard at work right now on the final draft. Oh, and Happy New Year, everyone.
richardsreality.com is now officially bigger and better, with an updated bibliography, information on my latest book, and twelve new pictures in the Photo Gallery, including five of Southern Japan. I genuinely hope that you enjoy it all.
Last year’s Postcards from Terri has been recommended for a British Fantasy Award. Not by me, I hasten to add, so someone must have liked it.
My latest book, Ghost Dance, is now available to order. And according to Robert Morgan of Sarob Press, it’s going fast. It’s a limited edition and there won’t be any more, so if you’re interested take a look at it back on my home page.
Here & Now — a British magazine that just keeps looking better — has brought out a big double-issue (5/6) which includes my article on Victorian writers, ‘Extraordinarily Dark Gentlemen’. As usual, visit my Links page to see more.
Intrepid journo Sandy Auden has just published a short interview with me in thealienonline.net. If you want to read it, there’s a link at the top of this page.
The mind-blowing new Chimeraworld anthology — Chimeraworld #2 — will be available as of June 1st from Cyber Pulp Books. It includes my story ‘Little Boy Blue’, and a host of other over-the-edge tales by talented writers old and new. To find out more about it, visit editor Mike Philbin’s site on my Links page.
