Dispatches from the Word Mines

When last we left our hero, he’d run a marathon. Other highlights since then: The wedding (HUGE SUCCESS) Honeymoon in Iceland (also fun; considerably less ice than expected though) Intracytoplasmic sperm injection, as we found out we were extremely unlikely to have kids using conventional methods. Now, when a man and a woman love each [...]

Cubicle 7 Entertainment to publish roleplaying game based on Charles Stross’ Laundry Files novels

Cubicle 7 Entertainment is producing a roleplaying game based on the award-winning Laundry series (The Atrocity Archives, The Jennifer Morgue, and the forthcoming The Fuller Memorandum) by the even-more-award-winning Charles Stross, and uses the also-award-winning Basic Roleplaying System (Call Of Cthulhu) by Chaosium Inc. “We love the Laundry Files novels, so we’re really excited about this game,” [...]

Milkyfish Press

I’ve updated (and by updated, I mean ‘mangled the HTML of deli’s nice site, so she’s going to design another one I can’t break so easily’) Milkyfish.com, which is our self-publishing operation. We’re starting off with a trio of Traveller supplements. I’m referring to these as ‘campaign toolkits’. They’re half-way between sourcebooks and adventures. It’s [...]

State of the Mongoose 2009

Matthew Sprange (aka My Boss)’s annual State of the Mongoose report is up. It pretty much lists all the books I’ll be writing for Mongoose in the months to come. My current project is Deus Vult, about a secret order of demon-hunting monks running around Medieval Europe. I spent part of this morning rewriting Papal [...]

Dragonmeet 2009

I’m down as a special guest at Dragonmeet in London this weekend, which is rather nice as I was going to attend the con anyway. I’ve only missed one ‘meet since James Wallis restarted it back in 2000*. The convention’s as close as the UK con scene gets to GenCon in terms of industry events [...]

Edition Books Aftermath

First, the saga of the comics. We ordered a somewhat ambitious print run of 100 copes of Fish for Fish from Comicxpress in the US about a month ago. Shipping should have taken two weeks. Even if there was a delay, we should still get them in plenty of time for the Edition Book Arts [...]

Slammers on Sale

The Hammer’s Slammers rpg I wrote for Mongoose is apparently out on the shelves. Early reports appear positive, on the whole. The game’s based on the novels of David Drake, and I’m both amused and honoured by his comments that “the fellow who did the writing really understood the military and (I think) got the [...]

Edition Book Arts

This weekend (Sat. 4th July), deli and I will be at Edition Book Arts in Dublin. It’s a book, comic and zine fair, and entry is free. It’s on in Temple Bar. . We will – assuming the postal service co-operates – be selling print copies of Fish for Fish. Support would be very, very [...]

State of the Mongoose & other news

Matthew Sprange’s annual State of the Mongoose post is up. My big Mongoose-thing for next year is overhauling PARANOIA, and I’m glad that I won the argument about the HIGH PROGRAMMER book. I still need to figure out how to write the thing, of course. * * * We’ve started updating Fish for Fish again. [...]
