One appearance I forgot to mention is that I’ll be signing up at Waterstones in Trowbridge this Saturday 15th, 1-2pm as one small cog in their new Arts Festival. By all means bring along anything you’d like to have signed. A few other SF&F writers based in the south-west region will be around as well – Moira Young, Juliet McKenna, Guy Haley and Jonathan Howard.
Then at the end of the month I’ll be up at the British Fantasy Convention in Brighton, from Thursday 27th September through to Sunday 30th. I’ll mostly be haunting one bar or another, so by all means collar me if you need something signed. I’m presenting the quiz on Friday night, 9.30-10.30 in the Russell Room, along with the inimitable Sarah Pinborough. Then at 1.30pm on Saturday I’ll be doing a little reading from the forthcoming Red Country and taking a few questions. Hopefully see some of you there…

Sorry to digress, but how long do you suspect you’ll be staying at each signing? And in particular, the Liverpool One signing? Do you expect to stay for several hours, or is it dependent on the turnout?
Just opposite of Brighton Centre,there are some steps to get you down at the beach.Turn left,pass the gym and treat yourself some fish ‘n chips with a great view of the sea.
Also a few meters away is the “Fortune of War” pub.
…..and under the pier is a popular place for dogging. I’ll be the one holding the signed copy of red country.
See you there, the convention that is.
. . . Is that like “fishing” except you use cats on retractable leashes?.
Is it frowned on to go after the bigger, warier dogs like rotweilers, by using “ground bait” of kittens scattered around your cat bait?.
Are rare dogs like Xoloitzcuintles and Bucovinas allowed in your catch, or do you have to “catch and release” them?.
Do you need a dogging licence, or can anyone play?.
Was tempted to show up, just to taunt with you with random blog-like comments. 😉
Alas, the BFS page suggests the two main hotels are booked up – and nothing makes a convention like a bunch of drunken authors in the hotel lobby after the event. 🙂
Offtopic I know but I just got an email from Amazon saying Red Country was being delayed by a month here in the states. =-(
It’s very much like fishing. You just find a good spot, usually at night, wave your tackle about and see what you catch. Or so i’m told.
lol. Very good sir, well played.
