The Trouble With Peace is out in but 18 days, people. Due to the ravages of Covid, the usual practice of filling a bookshop shoulder to shoulder with people who then queue up to be breathed on by an author has rapidly fallen in popularity. But if the thought of NOT seeing me talk about myself uninterrupted for an hour or two brings you out in hives, do not despair! Those clever folk at my publishers Gollancz and Orbit have teamed up to put on several virtual book events in association with some of the US and UK’s foremost purveyors of fine literature. Some will be in the company of guests already announced (including narrator extraordinaire Steven Pacey), some will be in the company of guests yet to be announced, and some will be one man shows. Follow the links to find out more and book your spot…

Ooh! Steven Pacey! And Joe will be there too? That’s a nice bonus!
I am reading, following and listening from Sydney Australia.
Will your interviews be recorded in some format so I can watch/listen at a later date? I’ve got a curious and at times a crying baby on the loose and he might not be asleep during those interview times. I have to be realistic about these things.
The Forbidden Planet event link doesn’t seem to be working correctly. It doesn’t take you to a page to sign up for the event. Instead, it takes you to a page that requires a password as if it’s assuming you’ve already signed up. There is a link that says “Need a password?” but there doesn’t seem to be a way to request one. Thanks.
Thanks – should now be fixed.
