And, you'll be relieved to know, it's not all about me. (But some of it is...)
On the news front, I heard about Lyrotica: An Anthology of Erotic Poetry and Prose yesterday. I mention it because it contains the writing of the immensely talented Richard Godwin. His debut novel Apostle Rising is a terrific read, and if you want an instant fix - and the chance to read both poetry and prose - he has two new pieces at Muck and Muse.
On to reviews. It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Josh Stallings, a writer who has knocked many of us sideways with his Moses McGuire series. The first book in the series was Beautiful, Naked and Dead (which I reviewed here on GB) and now the second book, Out There Bad, is available. It's a monster of a book, a wild ride and a worthy successor to BND, and my good friend Paul Brazill has read and reviewed it on his blog.
And finally, interviews. Nick Quantrill made his mark with debut novel Broken Dreams (which I rabbited on about here on GB) and he has just been interviewed by Luca Veste over at Guilty Conscience. Great stuff, well worth a read.
I've also been rattling on (again!) this time over at Iain Rowan's place. If you're not sick of me yet, you can read it here.
Now, sun's shining, coffee's brewing and work is calling. Later, people!
