Big News

Today I had the great pleasure of signing a contract for two novels with Angry Robot Books, the new division of HarperCollins.

Winter Song will be published in October 2009 in the UK, and at an as yet unspecified date in the US and electronically. It’s the story of an ordinary man -that is, ordinary by thirtieth-century standards- who is ambushed in a remote star-system and crash-lands on a ‘lost’ colony. He has to get home past alien wildlife and unfriendly colonists, unaware that the planet holds a huge secret.

Damage Time is scheduled for May 2010 publication, and is set in a near-future New York, where memories can be copied and sold for entertainment. But there’s a darker trade which leads to a policeman being framed for murder, and when that fails to put him off, he’s attacked and stripped of his memories.

It’s a huge step up for me, and I’m really looking forward to it.
