Unicorn by Simon RennieStrangely the first 33000 words of this novel were written almost twenty years ago.

As I flew to Spain back in 2015 I took a print out of my fledgeling book to read. It was surreal. There were parts of the plot I had completely forgotten and bits that were intriguing me. I had tell myself, I can... Read more of this blog post »

In the foreward of Space, time and Nathaniel(NEL 1971), Aldiss asks, ‘What happens to old science fiction? Is it as expendable as last year’s calender?’ to which the answer is, ‘Maybe.’ Nostalgia comes into play, and... Read more of this blog post »

"You're eggs is prego."


There are so many things wrong with that sentence, my brain just imploded.


 


Still, at least it was a "closed belly" shower.


What does that mean?

Jon  Nielsen Jon Nielsen's blog:
I tend to write my stories in a way I'd describe as... let's use the word "utilitarian." Every page, every panel, every line of dialogue needs to push the story along. There's no distractions, there's no extra fluff, it's clean and to the point.

Tom Perrotta Interview with Tom Perrotta
Fresh off the series finale of HBO's adaptation of The Leftovers, Perrotta is back with a look at sex and midlife second-guessing.
