Teri, Mike and Nick over at the decidely NSFW Sunday G&T Show Star Trek podcast asked me over to help celebrate their 150th episode, and it was my pleasure to hang out with them (after some minor technical glitches) to talk about all things Trek, including my Star Trek: The Fall novel The Poisoned Chalice and my forthcoming Star Trek: Titan novel Sight Unseen. Also, I impersonate Charlton Heston badly.

It's been a while, but I can now announce that I'll be appearing at the Black Library Weekender III event in Nottingham, over the weekend (well, duh) of 7th-9th November, celebrating all that's gnarly about the worlds of Warhammer and the Horus Heresy.

I'll be there along with the usual gang of reprobates, including top chaps such as Graham McNeil, Ben Counter, Aaron Dembski-Bowden, Chris Wraight, Gav Thorpe, John French, Neil Roberts, Christian Dunn, Nick Kyme, Andy Smillie, David Guymer, Toby Frost and Guy Haley. We'll be signing books, talking about things and, oh, stuff.

This year, three tiers of tickets are available, with assorted amounts of swag for those with deeper pockets. Learn more at the event website Here.

Deus Ex: The Fall is an original videogame release for mobile platforms, a spin-off from the world of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

All through the month of June, in association with Eidos Montreal and the good people over at IGN, you can pick up the game for FREE for all iOS devices - iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

I worked on the storyline for The Fall and the game follows on as a direct sequel to my novel Deus Ex: Icarus Effect, featuring the characters of ex-SAS spec ops mercenary Ben Saxon and Federal Agent-turned fugitive Anna Kelso.

A new date for the diary; this one's a way off yet - the 4th-5th of April to be exact - but seasoned Trekkers out there will naturally recognize that weekend as the one where Zefram Cochrane made (um...will make) first contact with the Vulcans in the movie Star Trek: First Contact.

And so, what better date on which to run a Star Trek event?

First Contact Day 2015
is a fan-run convention being held at the National Space Centre in Leicester, and I'm going to be there along with my fellow author and Star Trek: The Fall co-writer Una McCormack. Actors Garret Wang (from Star Trek Voyager) and Claudia Christian (from Babylon 5) will also be appearing. There will be guest talks, Q&A's, photo shoots, signings as well as a special "dinner with the stars" - as long as I can be pried away from the NSC's cool exhibits first...

For information on booking tickets, click Here or visit the event's Facebook page Here.

It's official: my editor at Pocket Books has given me permission to formally announce that I am writing a new novel in the Star Trek: Titan series, carrying on the adventures of the crew of the Starship Titan.

This will be my third novel featuring Will Riker, Deanna Troi, Christine Vale, Tuvok and the rest of the Titan crew, following on from 2009's Synthesis and last year's entry in the Star Trek: The Fall miniseries The Poisoned Chalice.

In the weeks and months ahead, I'll be talking more about this novel - but for now I'll leave you with a reveal of this new book's title...

This weekend, gamers will be gathering for the UK Games Expo event at the NEC Hilton Metropole hotel, for one of the biggest celebrations of board games, card games and miniatures games in the country..


...and I am very pleased to be attending the event for the first time as a guest; I am of course expecting to squander a foolish amount of money in the dealer's room, as well as finding some actual games to particpate in. I've heard a lot of great things about UK Games Expo and I'm really looking forward to taking part!

I'll be taking part in a writer's panel over the weekend and I'll have a table in the "Library" area of the event where I'll be available to sign autographs, chat and sell my books, so if you're coming along, please stop by and say hello.

For more information about the event, visit the official website Here.
