I thoroughly enjoyed them. They start as fairly straight vampire novels and then get weird in the way Farren does best (Hollow Earth, Nazi flying saucers, etc). But I'm a Farren fan.

I'd fully endorse T Frohock's books mentioned earlier. And Mick Farren's Victor Renquist books are worth searching out.

Just finished Frankenstein in Baghdad by Ahmed Saadawi (on this year's Booker shortlist), a wonderful bit of allegorical weirdness about the Iraq invasion and its aftermath. And now onto re-reading Philip Reeve's traction city series in anticipation of the new book and the movie.

The first three books of my series Shadow in the Storm (1 - Stealing into Winter; 2 - Exile and Pilgrim; 3 - Players of the Game), published by HarperVoyager, are currently available. Book four (Thunder on the Mountain) appears later this year. The rest of the series is under construction. I have taken a break from the series at present in order to get my second Charlie Cornelius novel written as well as drafting a one-off set on Mars.

Always happy to discuss my books.

The particular theme of Children of Men was far better tackled imo by Brian Aldiss in Greybeard. John Wyndham, of course, did a good line of apocalypse/post apocalypse worlds and didn't need to resort to the use of sexual violence to signify the breakdown of society. He hinted a couple of times, but that was enough. And all his books have that candle flame of hope built in.

« on: June 24, 2018, 10:11:16 am » name is Graeme Talboys (usually known as Grum). I'm a writer (my website is at: [although a new version is due to be launched soon-ish]) and fond of parentheses. I tend to come and go depending on how involved I am in my latest project.
