Jessica Jones Is…

…well worth your time. Watch it.

…filled with noir-detective goodness.

…street-level superheroics.

…really about rape, sexual assault, non-consent and power between genders.

…loaded with good action sequences, pain, consequences and injuries.

…full of agency, agency, agency. Nobody just hangs about. Nobody is there for the sole purpose of helping the main character out.

…demonstrative of a wide variety of strong characters.

(I don’t have the time to write a review, but take my word for it and watch this show.)

Reviews and Stuff

Mike Tyson said everyone has a plan till they’re punched in the face. Or something similar. Been a while since I had anything to say, mostly because life punched me in the face. No tragedy or drama or anything, just regular life stuff that requires time and effort.

Now then.

Locus Online reviews AfroSFV2 in which my novella ‘The Last Pantheon’ co-written with Nick Wood, gets favourable mention.

“It’s overall an entertaining read with occasional political overtones, not a screed, but at its heart a tragedy of two persons who once called each other brothers.”

Read the full review here.



My novel MAKING WOLF (which you’ve bought, right?) continues to get favourable reviews.

Here’s one from Val’s Random Comments.

“Thompson has his reasons to tell the story the way he does. He wants the book to be more than a simple fast-paced thriller and succeeds gloriously. It’s a book that hides a lot of food for thought under the surface. I’ve been spoiled with a great many good books this year. Making Wolf is another book I can wholeheartedly recommend.”

Full review here.



On the short fiction front, African Monsters ToC and Cover art is ready.

My story “120 Days of Sunlight” is in it.




You can read my horror short story “The Monkey House” on Omenana for free. Lots of other fiction there too.


That’s it for now. Tip your nurses and janitors!

Updates. Sorta.




-I’ve been keeping things going with my Inktober sketches because I had nothing to say.

-My novel is out, in a manner of speaking. I’ve been disappointed because of supply, publicity and logistics issues which the publisher has not been able to rectify. Ho-hum.

-Meanwhile, I’m working on another novel called LABOURS. It’s set in London and based loosely on the 12 labours of Heracles. It’ll take a while before I can post updates. I’m writing it longhand too, which is fun…until you have to transcribe. Unless RSI is fun to you. Which it might be, I don’t know.

-I’m finishing revisions on a horror novella this week. It’s a secret project for now, but as soon as the embargo is lifted, I’ll post something here. I’ve seen the cover and I love it.

-I’m in the early stages of working on a short story collection called BONE FRAGMENTS. It’ll have internal art by me, and I haven’t started yet. We’re talking 17 illustrations plus one frontispiece. I also have to revise the stories. This will take a year or so, but stay tuned.

-I’m listening to SIFU hotman. You should be too.
