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!

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 Botz.tech site for news, and a Botzrobots.com 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.

Check out the Botz Robots website for apps, games etc now >
