Coming soon: Resistance and Stoob.

Resistance is out in the UK and US in July. Was thrilled a few days ago when Nick Harkaway (of whose work I’m a big fan, and I cannot wait to read Tigerman) read and liked Resistance. Here’s his early review.

“Fresh, exciting heroics with a serious spine. What’s not to like?” – Nick Harkaway

This isn’t specifically Resistance related, but if you found Turbulence interesting you should definitely read this post on the myth of heroism by the great Charles Stross and this one by Cheryl Morgan on the rise of the British superhero

The first volume of a new series just went to press today. The Adventures of Stoob is a children’s book. The protagonist is ten, and it’s not a fantasy novel. School stories. The first one is called Testing Times, and is about Stoob’s first big exam. There will be more. Do look out for the lovely illustrations from the very talented Sunaina Coelho.


Will update when I know when it’s out. In other news, a New York visit happened last month, and there are photo-type things all over my Instagram. I’m working on many secret things involving non-disclosure agreements and digital signatures, so more when I can say more.
