  1. Got a rejection from ana agent, I need ti find some more agents specialising in my type of novel. Stillwaiting to hear from Tor regarding my novella submitted to their open submissikn window in January. just started second draft of my supernatural detective novel.
  2. I rewatched Sharpe's Waterloo last night (currently re-reading books). It's not aged well, but is still enjoyable. Seems more tongue in cheek than I remember, especially with Paul Bettany galloping around screaming at his fleeing cavalry before wiping out battalion after battalion of his own men through incompetence.
  3. Planescape Torment Enhanced Edition is now out! I got it on Steam, nice to be able to zoom in and out. Not had a chance to play much, but looks good. Not sure if worth getting if you've modded out the original, but good for those who haven't. It also has the option to play the original version.
  4. Cadbury's should assure everyone they remain totally committed to exploiting religious belief in the promotikn of chocolate. Perhaps sell Pontius Pilate-themed mini-eggs: they're shelled, so no nee to wash your hands afterwards!
  5. My two Jura are Prophecy and Superstition.
  6. In what will be a surprise to no one, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has decided she will call for a second referendum for Scotttish Independence. Because apparently 'once in a generation' means 'until we get the result we want'. not looking forward to more months of divisive bullshit. The polls have shown little if any increase in support for independence, so this might backfire horribly. Not to mention, theres no indication from the EU that they would accept an independat Scotland, and no chance we could be grandfathered in. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-39255181
  7. My drinks cabinet currently contains Johnnie Walker Blue Label and Isle of Jura (a heavily peated and a lighter peated). i also like McCallan Gold
  8. Despite making it to the third round, my novel Resurrection Men was rejected by Gollancz's open submission from last year.:( They said petty much same thing Inspired Quill did; problem wasnt the writing, rather the genre (paranornal/historical fantasy) wasnt right for them. So I've sent samples to a couple agents. Meanwhile I've nearly finished the first draft of my supernatural police mystery, Play Dead.
  9. Maybe book 2's special edition will come with an amended epilogie where a meteorite lands on the inn before Day 3?
  10. Can anyone offer help? I'm tweaking my novel set in 1890's Glasgow, having realised my characters are often too infomal for the era. So I'm having people use first names less often, particularly between opposite genders. my question is, how would a friend refer to a father and son present at the same time? If he calls them both Hunt, it'll get confusing. Formally they'd be introduced as Mr Hunt and Mr Wilton Hunt, and the son could be formaly called Mr Wilton, but what about less formally? I believe in public schools, brothrs would be labelled Major and Minor, would that also be for father/son? Or Maximus/Minimus? Thanks!
  11. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-38868571 The overturning of the ban means a 4 month old Iranian girl can now travel as planned to get a heart operation. The hospital has apparently promised to do it for free now.
  12. Petition now over 900,000 votes
  13. Ultima IV was my first rpg and loved it. (Sega master systrm) Alex kidd in Miracle World - camr built in to the master system. Another great game.
  14. Theyve replied to queries on their August blog update - they're on the 3rd sift, and by mid Feb eeryone should have heard. They did say they missed sendibg a few letters to some rejected earlier last year, so of not heard by late feb email them
  15. 3000 years seems way too short. One of the elf cities got swallowed up by a glacier!
