Robot Invasion?

Still moving. Here’s a picture for you to caption while you wait for me to come back here and post something actually useful.

Touch the Dead

Here’s a larger size cover for the latest On Spec magazine containing my story ‘Touch the Dead’ as well as the link to the current issue details.

Still Here

Before anybody connects my silence here with anything nefarious I’d just like to mention that I am in the process of a move. So if I’m late replying to email, tweets, or mindlinks, please bear with me. This is going to be a prolonged move so expected prolonged disruption to this blog. If anything is […]

Latest Toy: AT-AT

So this is what my 6yr old recently bought. Pretty cool, eh? He saved up for it for quite a while but unfortunately it was sold out by the time he had the cash. Luckily my wife phoned around, found one on the other side of the country and had it shipped here. I had […]

Press Release: Brent Knowles Retiring from Writing and Game Design to Focus On…

What do you think? Can I start a career making crafts out of household goods? Maybe not?

Story Submission Day (whew!)

Today I sent out just over ten stories, some new, some that had been rejected over the past week or so. As I hinted at in the previous post we’ve been preparing for a house move (a new property has been bought — the move has not happened yet). So I haven’t had time to […]
