Hello! I haven’t posted in a while, and I’m on holiday, so I thought I should do a little update on what I’ve been up to the last few months…..
I’ve mainly been keeping busy scribbling away on various features for Shindig! Magazine. They’re a fantastic mag to work for, run by lovely, passionate like-minded folk. I’m in good company with a group of great writers and it’s an honour to be involved. Amongst other articles and reviews I’ve been given the opportunity to pen four cover features for them this year. So far I’ve done cover stories on David Bowie, Buffalo Springfield, and The Small Faces. It was a little weird when Bowie’s website got wind and published a rebuttal, but nice of them to notice! The latest issue features my latest one on Bobbie Gentry and is already available to pre-order, hitting shelves very soon.
I’ve got some more bits coming up in Ghoulish Publications’ excellent Sci-Fi/Cult magazine Infinity, the next issue is out on September 13th. Issue 15 will be out in November featuring part one of my two part chat with veteran Special Effects guru Gary Pollard.
Apart from that I’ve been mostly raising this little guy. His name is Elmo.
There’s another possible exciting new project in the offing, which I’m about to start work on. Hopefully I’ll be able to say more soon, but that’s (hopefully) a story for another day.
