grimdark magazine

My story RAGE WOLF (a story of THE IRON WOLVES) was published recently by Grimdark Magazine, which I’m totally thrilled about: I’m getting back into the groove of writing after a two-year hiatus. My good friend, bruv and super talented musical maestro Rob Shedwick (aka Digital Front) composed an album called FOUND IN MACHINES which I listened to whilst writing, and which certainly set the tone of the story (links below). After reading an early draft, Rob then beavered away composing a thrilling action tune to accompany Dek’s ascent of The Red Tower in RAGE WOLF – and you can hear it here in all it’s g(l)ory: The Red Tower, by Rob Shedwick –

Painted Mannequins sets the opening tone of the story. You can hear it here:

Then, New Doll, Sick Doll and Doll’s Burial all further compliment the story, and are awesome pieces of music in their own right. Check them out!!

A little while ago TOR published three of my novellas, A Song For No Man’s Land, The Iron Beast and Return of Souls. Rob composed a track to accompany them, which can be heard here. Go Rob!!!

Hello Spectrum fans!!

(and indeed, people who do not “understand”…)

I have just re-launched the Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict film Kickstarter, but with an updated core concept that focuses more on the history of the Spectrum, and indeed the developers and FANS who made the computer what it was and is. Please take a moment to look at the this new Kickstarter, and if nothing else, it would be appreciated if you could help spread the word.

Here’s the link –

Hi Peeps.

There’s still a few physical review copies (ARCs) of my new novel, The Iron Wolves, kicking about in the Angry Robot Dungeon. If you’d like one, please get in touch with moi – jappoc [at] (or) – – caroline [dot] lambe [at] angryrobotbooks [dot] com. There’s also a squillion digital ARCs still available from Caroline. Get in touch letting us know the name of your site/publication etc.

If you do post a review of the novel The Iron Wolves (be it good or bad) on your review blog or review website, you also qualify for the amusingly named WOLF PACK (grwww, etc) – a goodie bag containing an Iron Wolves t-shirt, bookmark, signed author photograph and lolly pop, and you’ll be entered into a competition to spend the day with Mr Remic himself. Probably in a Local Hostelry.

Go on, knock yourself out and review the book. The t-shirts are particularly nice and utterly exclusive. 🙂

Kind regards,

OK. For those who haven’t yet heard, Angry Robot Publishers have become independent of HarperCollins Publishers, and are now working alongside Osprey Publishing in the marketplace.

Chris Michaels, HarperCollins Digital Publisher, Fiction/Non-Fiction, who helped set-up Angry Robot, said: “Having helped build the foundations for a successful future, we are delighted that the Angry Robot team has found a new publishing partner in Osprey. We believe this will help them develop their niche offering, supported by Osprey’s specialist sales and marketing teams. We wish them good luck for the future.”

Marc Gascoigne added, “Our publishing programme for 2010/11 will be basically unaffected by these changes. There will be a short break while the transition is sorted out, but we will be re-launching in September 2010 and then it will be business as usual.”

A full breakdown of what’s happening can be found on the AR website here –

The *bad news* for you guys and gals is a change to various publications dates. Sadly, SOUL STEALERS has been put back 6 months, as has the US and Canadian releases of KELL’S LEGEND and SOUL STEALERS. New publication dates are as follows:
