Meanwhile, back in the jungle…

I got really carried away with work and could not post anything.

I mean that literally. My work required me to write so much that I could not type a single character afterwards. I estimate that over the last three weeks I have written on average six thousand five hundred words a day in emails, letters, guideline drafts, reports etc. I have read hundreds of pages of text too. All I can say is speed-reading is your friend.

All that intensity left no time for fiction writing, fiction reading or blogging. No art. Nothing except a few pages of Dhalgren daily. I also tend to comfort-read The Vorrh.

The good news is that I have some breathing space now and I can get back to boring you with my opinions and uncontrolled cerebral eruptions.

Nothing to see yet. Act three is challenging, but we’re getting there.

News and Stuff

Hi.

First up, my short story ‘Bicycle Girl’ is up on Amazon for a mere trifle.

Here is some blurby goodness (or mediocrity. Or badness.):

“In a future Nigeria where cyborg surveillance animals, decommissioned space stations and RFID implants are commonplace, theoretical physics professor Aloy Ogene is in solitary confinement and stands accused of the murder of one thousand, one hundred and seventy-five people. Under interrogation he tells the story of a visit from a strange child, a girl with limited command of English who needs his help with a mysterious antique machine, whose request leads to life-or-death consequences. ”

Go and buy it:

Or better yet go to the publishers and buy it and other stories direct:

There are many stories by other writers too. My friend Nick Wood is donating the proceeds to charity.

 

Second bit: I have signed a book contract but it’s embargoed for now. More on that later.
