Weekend Catch-Up

I had an enjoyable Forbidden Planet signing midweek, with lots of people popping in to get both the US and UK editions of Wolverine: Hunting Season signed.  This was my only time off from a rather demanding schedule at the moment.  I'm revising the new Shadow Police novel, The Severed Streets, to my editor's (wonderful) notes, in the mornings, and looking after Tom in the afternoons.  So everything else gets done at the weekends.  This includes preparing for Worldcon.  There will be Just A Minute, but I don't have all my guests yet, so later for my schedule for that and next week for a reminder of what I'll be doing at the Edinburgh Book Festival.

The first thing I should say is that, to my surprise, I've been given an award!  The lovely Nine Worlds convention (which impressed me enormously), held their Geekfest Awards on their final evening (sadly, after I had to leave), and I was honoured with 'Best London-Based Fantasy/SF Novel' for London Falling, which is a great thing, and thank you very much.  Mention of it is included in their post-match press release. The awesome Madeleine Beresford also produced a spot-on summing-up of the event, including a mention of yours truly, for my publishers, Tor.

There's a Worldcon event that I'd like to publicise.  I'll be hosting the Masquerade on the Saturday night at San Antonio, but if I wasn't, I'd be joining in the frolics here...


With a whole bunch of my favourite people, door prizes and cheap drinks!  Hmm, I wonder if I can get there after the Masquerade...?

And finally, with our big 'Killable' arc starting in Wolverine this week (with #8), I talked to CBR about all things Logan.  I'm loving the response to this arc, and I think #9 is our best issue so far.  It all leads to something enormous in #13.

Okay, back to work I go.  Until next time, Cheerio!
