Ice, Ice Baby!



I'm posting this picture to explain why I haven't been blogging as much as usual of late (sorry 'bout that). I've been busy with this little project. A few advance notices have appeared on Amazon and similar sites, but I thought it was time I blogged an official word here as well. It's due out for Christmas - it's a Christmassy kinda story, as you can tell by the, uh, Ice Warriors - so it's on a helluva tight turn around. But it's also a helluva big honour to write this year's major hardback (last year's Christmas book was by Mr Moorcock, if you recall). I'm loving every minute of it, and I think it's going to be a cracker.

OMG, I didn't just make the 'Christmas cracker' joke in public, did I?

Anyway - Amy, Rory, Matt Smith's Doctor and some Ice Warriors. Did I mention the Ice Warriors? I got chills, baby! Chills!

Much as I am sure it is exciting for Dr Who fans and nice for you Dan to stretch your creative muscles across other IPs - I wish I could lock you in an Inquisition cell and force feed you Codices and other fluff and insist you turn out at least three W40k novels a year!!!!!

And yes, surely that must be why The Keeler Image is delayed? Damn you Dr Who!!! Damn you!

P.S. BLGraeme on the Bolthole hinted at something Eisenhorn related still coming this year. Pray tell?

Dan thank you for your work! You are my favorite foreign writer! As for me your best works are Horus Rising, Legion, first book of Eisenhorn and Riders of the dead. In the meantime awaiting Salvations Reach - i really love where the Ghost serie is going!
