Reading Update 12/01/2021

Why oh why did I have to set myself Things To Do when it comes to reading? That review-a-day thing I'm planning for Wyrd & Wonder? Yeah I'm gonna have to get my read on if I'm to get up to speed with that. Of course this was always predictable for a committed mood reader... Continue Reading →

Author Interview: Corey J. White

Hi Corey, thanks so much for doing the interview! I've just finished your newest book, Repo Virtual, and absolutely loved it. How have you found the experience of releasing a book this year?

Ok, so given I'm gonna be exclusively talking about cyberpunk on the blog during SciFi Month, it's probably a good idea to talk a bit about what it is. Subgenres are fickle, amorphous things so don't take this as a comprehensive overview. I'm sure there'll be many things I leave out and probably some stuff... Continue Reading →
