Innsmouth isn’t traditionally the most welcoming of places, but I’m kind of known there now, so they let me walk abroad once in a while, without being dragged down to the murky depths. The Esoteric Order of Dagon don’t do a very good cup of tea, but the sushi’s excellent, if you like that kind of thing.
Still, they let the Innsmouth Book Club meet there once in a while (at very reasonable rates, I’m told) so I recently joined Rob and Tim for a chat about Tolkien’s masterpiece, the Lord of the Rings from a particularly English perspective.
Fellow author David Hambling was also on board as we talked landscape, balrog wings, Cockney trolls, the divine right of kings, World War One and much more in thissplendid Tolkien-themed podcast.
Occasionally, I get a chance to emerge from my writing, game designing and narrative bunker and come blinking into the light for a chat with some interesting people. Check out the Interview here. Fluff n’ Crunch are a splendid set of chaps who do deep dives into games design and narrative, especially in Modiphius’s 2d20 […]

No matter what anyone tells you, it’s always splendid to be nominated for an award and with the British Science Fiction Association’s annual list just published, I was delighted to see that The Constellation of Alarion has made the longlist for Best Short Fiction for 2021. Of course, it would be amazing to win, but […]
It’s probably a bit late now to wish everyone a happy new year, so all I’ll say is, welcome to 2022, let’s hope it doesn’t suck as much as its immediate predecessors. It’s started off on a good note for me at least, as I’ve just received my author’s copy of Vital Signals, a brand […]
Wow, this was a while coming! I’ve just received my contributor’s copies of the full range of Achtung! Cthulhu books, dice, and accessories and I have to say they are glorious!

It’s always marvellous to have a chat about my work as an RPG narrative designer and I joined the splendid Meric Moir from Massive Damage Adventures for an extended Q&A where we discuss the forthcoming release of Achtung!
