After a year of writing and several years of editing and agonising over things, […]Read more "The Ardenna Crossing – Available now on Amazon"
I felt like I had to mark this with a post. I haven’t written anything proper for ages and I was so impressed by the end of this series that I thought it justified one. I sat down with some trepidation to watch Amazon Prime’s The Man in the High Castle a few weeks ago. […]Read more "The Man in the High Castle – getting the villains spot on"
Happy 75th birthday to my favourite James Bond, Colwyn Bay’s own Timothy Dalton. He made a fantastic Bond and deserved a third crack at it. Apart from 007, I loved him in The Rocketeer as actor and villainous Nazi stooge, Neville Sinclair. And as Heathcliff in the 1970 version of Wuthering Heights… And also in […]Read more "Happy birthday Timothy Dalton"

I guess it was inevitable: Mass Effect is returning. Such a great franchise couldn’t stay away for long. Here is the first trailer, which features a familiar face… One might think that the presence of the Shadow Broker herself, Liara T’Soni, guarantees that this future instalment of this series will go right back to the […]Read more "New Mass Effect – 7 things I’d love to see"
Hi everyone, Announcement time! I got some big pieces of paper out yesterday, stuck them to the wall, and thrashed out the story plan for part 2 of The Ardenna Crossing. The structure and plot are now complete and I know where I’m going, As you might know, I’ve already written seven of twenty-five chapters […]Read more "Ardenna Crossing Book 2 Update"
Cameron, Jami and I watch David Lynch’s Inland Empire. I hadn’t seen this since I watched it at the cinema in 2006. It’s last on my list of Lynch films; I just didn’t connect with it, but there are some interesting moments within. I’ve been meaning to rewatch it for some time. I especially liked […]Read more "Inland Empire Watchalong"
Hi everyone, This is my first Twin Peaks poem for quite some time. I had a little fun imagining the possibilities that were brought up on Cameron’s podcast the other day. Wisteria could be anything and I welcome whatever it is. Unfortunately, I couldn’t help myself from wandering into the universe of Twin Peaks, especially […]Read more "Wisteria – A #whatthehaiku Special"
