The cuckoo phoenixes, and I have returned to crow (and/or coo) about my second novel, out a couple of months back, WHO NEEDS CLEOPATRA? The answer, of course, is nobody, but still...
Details at www.readreverb.com
But much more fun (and blood will be let, fear not!) is a calumnious 'interview' with my fair self at www.ookami.co.uk ('Interviews')
I've also snuck stuff in Mammoth Book of New Comic Fantasy, Darkness Rising 2005, upcoming Strange Pleasures 4, and Deathgrip Exit Laughing.
Rhys, I trust the fees for hire of your board haven't increased since last year?
And you'e awfully quiet lately... I've tried amny times to download your pictorial masterpiece, but a modem just can't manage it.

Rhys has just put my rent up on this board (10 eyes of newt), so I feel I should utilise it.
Surprisingly, WHO NEEDS CLEOPATRA? hasn't yet reached number one at Amazon, despite various sweet words from various sources (including the Maestro himself and Interzone) bits of them lovingly (if, of course, selectively!) brought together at:
And another interview which thankfully avoids all reference to my teeth at:
I've also reviewed THE BOOK OF VOICES, a marvellous collection (inc. Jeffrey Ford, Catherynne Valente, Andrew Hook, Gregory Norminton) that ought to be better known, for the Cleo publishers' review pages:

I just ordered BOOK OF VOICES, actually. Should be here any day.
I didn't realize WHO NEEDS CLEOPATRA was out! I'll be picking up a copy immediately, and if I like it as much as FoD, pimping it to anyone who'll listen and everyone else besides!

Hi, Mastadge! Glad you ordered Book of Voices - I'm pretty sure you'll like it.
As for Cleo, I ought to warn you it's quite different from Fisher, much more emphasis on humour and plot convolutions and less on character and feeling. Some people prefer Cleo, but in your case... well, check your purse strings first.
I say this because you were so generous with your comments on Fisher (only last week, I googled myself and somehow the big G had picked up a message board from a year ago (!) on which you had persuaded some poor chap to buy a copy of Fisher!) and I don't want to lose a happy reader (at least, not without warning...)

Wedged in between two great men, Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams - that's the way to get people's attention! - is someone else WHO NEEDS CLEOPATRA on the sci-fi-online site:

Steve, good to see you have at least one reader other than me:
Mastadge, have you read Book of Voices yet? Hope you liked it.

But see what Mike Moorcock said about our host himself - in Portuguese!
