Proof Of Life

And The Angel Of The Lord Came Down And Said 'Get The Hell On With It Man'... so I did and now I have two books coming out before The End Of November. One is a project that I stalled on purpose for a little while (I won't bore you with the technicalities) and the other is a totally brand spanking new thing. 

I'll update here over the next couple of weeks on both of those but first I need to take of some boring business behind the scenes. Exciting times though - I feel like it's been forever since I put a book out. 

Let's get it on. Meanwhile:

I'm not sure how I ended up working with a Biblical theme today but this is the trailer for Leonardo DiCaprio's documentary/movie Before The Flood.

If you have an hour and a half to spare, the whole movie is available to stream over at National Geographic here and it's an hour and a half of your life that will be well spent. Should you feel inclined after watching it (or indeed, before), take a look at this page and see what you can do that's of actual value - and by that, I mean not typing a couple of sentences in a social media feed about how bad things are... although now I look at the page again, that also appears to be a valid option.

Damn. The irony of that stings more than you'll ever know.

If you're looking for a good read this week, I romped through Mr Cottam's The Memory Of Trees over the weekend and it's superb:

I'm not sure why his name never appears on lists of great horror writers - and I'm pretty sure he wonders the same sometimes - maybe it's because the things he does fuck with the darkness that lurks at the back of your head rather than hammering a railway spike into your eye. Trust me on this - and if your trust holds - The Waiting Room also has some serious jitters and is my favourite of his works. Go see.

..and while we're on the subject of things that are worth checking in on this week, Beware Of Darkness handed over their latest album Are You Real? This also gave me jitters but of a different kind.

That's all I got. Things to do. People to see. 

Well... things to do anyway.
