Iain M Banks on Tor and the Culture

I-M-Banks-Consider-PhlebasThe Tor site from Macmillan is full of interesting articles (for geeks). They have a lot on Iain M Banks, currently a new series on The Culture, his socialist (ish) future civilization.
Here’s a link to an article on Consider Phlebas >

I first read his SF when I found a copy of Use of Weapons in a newsagent remaindered books bin. A good one to start with. I also discovered Adam Roberts in a remainder bookshop, with Land of the Headless.

Never know what you might find!

SF films by auteurs

Valerian aliens
Valerian aliens

What do these films have in common?

Valerian and City of a Thousand Planets, Sucker Punch, Jupiter Ascending, Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow and Chappie.

“I’m glad these crazy, audacious, personal projects exist because they make the often boring and predictable world of popcorn entertainment crazier and more interesting.

Yet I also very much intend to never see any of these movies ever again. Sober, at least.”

Botz Robots

I have started a new novel that has a Botz robot brand, so I started some websites to promote the general idea. There is a site for news, and a site for apps and games.

Once the book is finished I’ll update with images from the book, downloads of extracts etc.

Everyone who has subscribed will get a free peek before official release, I’ll do a mail out about that in the next weeks.
