Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain

All you eager posters asked me a bunch of stuff about the last post, so I've tried to address your questions on the comment strand there (go take a look) rather than here. So this is a blog entry about nothing, then. Nice one, Dan.

(Stands for a moment, checks watch, whistles). Well, I started in on Only In Death, which may turn out to be the CREEPIEST Gaunt yet. More on that as it takes shape. I'm also particularly loving scripting Sinister Dexter for 2000AD at the moment (and a new strip for the same, Kingdom, which Richard Elson is drawing... it's looking amazing). Andy Lanning and I are getting Nova ready to fly.

I'm also trying to figure out what to make my next Horus heresy novel about. Any ideas (apart from Space Wolves, before we get started on that again!).

Fingers crossed, the next time I blog, I'll be able to announce the Bg Secret Project.

What are you doing?

What? Right now? Typing. Why?

Oh, too literal? Okay: for Wildstorm, Texas Chainsaw; for 2000AD, Sinister Dexter and Kingdom; for Titan, Wallace and Gromit; for Boom!, Warhammer 40K.

The next novel is going to be Only In Death (Gaunt #11), which will be followed by another Horus book and then something very big and juicy and 40k (which I'm not sure I'm allowed to mention yet. I must check with the Black Librarians). In amongst those things will be fitted something for Solaris, Young Gaunt (from here on to be known as "Li'l Gaunt") and Double Eagle 2 (which will not be called, as Lindsey insists on having it, 'Quadruple Eagle').

I also have a real yen to write some Eisenhorn/Ravenor short stories - loose end sort of things - and I also wanna take a swing at a meaty Warhammer epic. Must make more clones.

Recommendations for the week:

1. Music - anything by Something For Kate.
2. Comics - Phonogram. Hurrah! Something a bit different AND good.
3. Comics (again) - Next Wave. Warren Ellis writes what gets my vote as the funniest comic around. Thank you, Warren. It makes me laugh.
