I'm a writer of SF and fantasy in prose, comics and television, one of only two people to be Hugo Award-nominated for all three media. I wrote three episodes of Doctor Who for the BBC, Batman & Robin and Superman in Action Comics for DC, and my continuing mature readers series at Vertigo is Saucer Country. My first urban fantasy novel, London Falling, about a modern undercover police unit in London accidentally becoming able to see dark magic and monsters, is out from Tor in the UK in December, and in the US in April 2013. I live near London, and my other interests include cricket, all things Fortean, and my newborn son Thomas. His interests include tummy rubs and poo.

Lychford, a tiny little English town that acts as the border between this world and realities beyond our understanding, is a wonderfully conceived and executed setting—just getting to spend time here again was a blast. I've tried three times now to...

I found "The Severed Streets" to be a surprisingly brutal book. It goes beyond the "Old Bill vs Old Nick on the West Ham Pitch" feel of the first book "London Falling" and crosses the boundary from Urban Fantasy to real Horror. It continues with the unconventional police unit, all of whom have bee...

What a pleasant surprise! I've had this book in my TBR for a long while and kept avoiding it, probably because it was a novella and I'm not big on novellas. It's too bad, because I started it late last night and finished it this evening. It was really good! The story is set in a small town in con...
