Trench Raiders is done, and other news from the world of me
I'm also busy reading the candidates for the Hugo Award, the annual science fiction awards presented at Worldcon. The convention is in London this August and I'll be there. I'm even hosting a couple of panels! I'll have a big con report for you come August.
Oh, and my eight-year-old son has started a blog, Remote Islands and Stuff. He's obsessed with Google Maps and loves to find obscure little islands in the middle of nowhere. Strange to say, that's something I used to do with paper maps back when I was his age, although I never suggested he do it himself! Could an interest in coral atolls be genetic?
This image from Wikipedia shows the 2nd Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, the heroes of trench Raiders, busy seeing off the Prussian Guard at Ypres in 1914.
