I wonder if you could give us a sneak peek at highlights of upcoming IP updates. What interviews are in the works, fiction?

Let me see...

I don't have the definitive list to hand as I'm on my lunchbreak at work, but I know we have interviews with Ian McDonald, Chris Priest, Michael Bishop and Connie Willis (plus a story from Connie); we have another story from Anna Tambour, whose stuff is particularly odd and who is one of the newer writers I'm really pleased to be featuring; an extract from Cherith Baldry's new novel (just out from Macmillan); fiction from Nick Mamatas, Roger Levy and hopefully an extract from Gwyneth Jones's next novel. Lots of other things, too, if only I could remember them all...

Actual scheduling tends to be fluid, shifting things around to tie in with various publication dates: Cherith Baldry and Roger Levy will be up soon, for instance; and the Chris Priest interview will go up shortly before Eastercon, as it's reprinted from Interzone and is up for a BSFA award at the con.

You may also have noticed that we've gone from weekly updates (not bad: weekly updates for 5 years!) to every 2 or 3 weeks. We're still adding the same amount of material - probably more - but clumping it together like that frees up writing time for me, and I have a lot on at the moment!

I see an extract from Sean Wright's new novel Wicked or What? on the site. I found a review here, which seems even more hostile to the book than InfinityPlus's reviews of his earlier books The Twisted Root of Jaarfindor and Dark Tales of Time and Space.

I'm not sure why you've chosen to post this, but your suggestion that the infinity plus reviews are hostile is wrong: the reviews are fairly positive, with a few reservations.

I hadn't heard about that guy Sean but, after reading that scathing review, I can see where the guys on the site are coming from.

I think it's all about thinking about what you are writing and coming up with the best product you can. Reading that and seeing the catalogue of mistakes then I don't think that guy will have much a future in writing unless he learns from his mistakes.

There were a few names I recognised on the site and thought their inclusion was a bit harsh (well, harsh but funny)
