Dusty here, isn't it?

Well, it would seem I have neglected this Blog for far too long. This should soon change.

40 Types of Wink - a short tale

40 Types of Wink is a short tale that arose from an idea that has since been put on ice. However, I quite liked the piece so I thought I’d share it here. It might make people of a certain generation (in the UK) feel nostalgic – and it might, it just might, have a couple of guest stars. I hope you enjoy it. Use the link here (apologies for you having to copy and paste it - I can't work out a direct link here):

The Twelve Doctors of Christmas Has Arrived!

From the Facebook The Twelve Doctors of Christmas page (not my wording but it says everything that needs to be said - thanks, Nick!) All of us involved with the project hope you enjoy this series of tales of the Doctor's Yuletide festivities. Please like and share this page with your friends and family. We want these stories to go far and wide! As you join us on the journey, please feel free to share your thoughts and comments here as well. Before we get to the download link, We've got a quick message. If you like the stories, then please take the time to offer a small donation to our designated charity, The National Autistic Society. One of our authors has set up a Just Giving page with full details, and you can get to it via the link below. If everyone who reads the book donates just £1, we're sure we could give the society a lovely Christmas present. Now for the creamy caramel centre... There are 12 stories in the book, and we're going to be making one available each day, starting on the 13th December. This means that the last will drop into your laps on Christmas Eve. If you're reading this before then, don't fret - There's a prologue already waiting for you to whet your appetite. The stories will be available in three formats - Low res PDF, High res PDF, and a MOBI file, suitable for use on Kindles or other e-readers. On the last day, in addition to the final story, a PDF and MOBI file of the entire suite of stories will be made available. The full PDF will contain an additional piece of -lovely- artwork, and biographies of all the writers and artists. Keep an eye on this group and we will inform you each day when the new chapter is available to download. In addition, we are getting quotes at the moment for a real print version of these stories! This will hopefully contain additional content over the PDF version, and will look lovely on your shelves next to your other Who memorabilia. Further details will be posted here as we get them! So without further ado - THE DOWNLOAD LINK!

Cygnus Alpha

In another update, I am also delighted to say that I am contributing to the "regenerated" fanzine Cygnus Alpha. I have an article in both issues 13 and 14 and... well - wait and see. ;)

Me and Who

Just to ensure this Blog still knows I think about it from time to time, a brief update. I am thrilled to announce I am working as editor on the third volume of You and Who, provisionally sub-titled Blake's Heaven. Details can be found here:

Just a reminder that two superb volumes of You and Who are available for pre-order now. Oh, and don't worry - there are essays by other people in them. Lots of other people. :)
