Exciting December round-up of pretty great stuff!

The year is almost over. I still have tonnes to do! And… I haven’t blogged much, because BUSY.

But there’s some cool stuff happening, and I’ll have plenty to talk about soon — when I’m allowed to talk about it! — so in the meantime here’s a collection of link to some neat things me and my friends are doing:

  • The Burning Dark gets a nice mention in the Tor.com reviewer’s round-up of 2014! Huzzah!
  • Brisk Money, the novelette prequel to the forthcoming LA Trilogy, has been included in this year’s Best of Tor.com short fiction! This anthology of selected stories from the site will be out in January, and it’s absolutely 100% free! I’m delighted to be included in it this year — I kinda love Brisk Money, and this is one thing to tick off the writerly bucket list.
  • Free Comic Book Day 2015 is scheduled for Saturday, May 2nd, and Dark Circle Comics will be a part of it with a special preview sampler, featuring The Fox, Black Hood, and The Shield. And… that’s another bucket list item checked! I’ll also be doing a FCBD event, details of which I’ll post closer to the time.
  • Speaking of The Shield, co-writer Chuck Wendig and I recently spoke to Women Write About Comics about the book.
  • And just yesterday, Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater did a Reddit AMA and answered questions about all corners of the Archie universe… including Dark Circle. He revealed that The Shield #1 is due for April 2015, and I popped in to say I’d be at the San Diego Comic Con International in July!
  • My friend Paul Cornell has started his annual 12 Blogs of Christmas, something I look forward to reading every year. His post about Fortean photographs stirs a part of my brain that was terrified as a child by Arthur C. Clarke’s World of Strange Powers, and he’s also broken the news that his first collection of short fiction is coming next year from NewCon Press. I’m looking forward to that!
  • And if you’re not listening to Emma Newman‘s Tea and Jeopardy Advent Calendar 2014, then you need to rectify the situation. This daily mini-podcast has become a highlight for me, and if they don’t win the Hugo Award for Best Fancast in 2015 then I shall be very cross.
  • Finally today, one of my favourite bands, The Bird and the Bee, have released their Christmas tunes online for free — their version of The 12 Days of Christmas (with a new chord progression at each verse repetition) is well worth a listen.

And that’s it for now. See you soon for some news…

Ninja SHIELD poster signing at Thought Bubble!

The Thought Bubble comic con is happening this weekend in Leeds, England, and I’ll be there on the Saturday as a regular attendee. I’ve been going to this con for years now, and it’s a firm favourite of mine. The guest list is pretty spectacular.

Among those over from the US is Kelly Fitzpatrick, colourist extraordinaire who is working on the Dark Circle books, including The Shield. Kelly will be stationed at table 18 in the New Dock Hall.

And if you go and see her, or find me wandering around the con, say hello and pick up a free double-sided Dark Circle Comics poster, signed by me and Kelly!

Supplies are limited! See you on Saturday!

THE SHIELD round-up!

As you might know, I’m co-writing The Shield with Chuck Wendig for Dark Circle Comics, the superhero imprint of Archie Comics. The Shield is one of three core books forming the relaunch, and will be joined by Black Hood and The Fox in early 2015.

Let’s not mince words. This is pretty gosh darned amazing.

There’s going to be lots of info coming soon, and maybe some stuff to show off. But in the meantime I’m compiling a list of links to interviews, features, news and podcasts. This list isn’t comprehensive, as we got a heck of a lot of coverage, but I’ll periodically update everything via the COMICS link at the top of my website.

The state of the writer, autumn 2014 edition

Phew. Not dead, just working. And maybe pining for the fjords just a little.

So, WorldCon (and Nine Worlds and Fantasy in the Court) happened about a million years ago and was Fun Times and included highlights such as seeing my book cover on a cake…

And with convention season a distant memory, it’s time to take stock of what I’m actually working on at the moment:

  • Writing the first book in The LA Trilogy, about a robot “detective” in 1960s Hollywood. I say “detective” because… well, you need to go read the prequel novelette, Brisk Money, which is up on Tor.com. The events of book 1 – which has a title, albeit one I shall keep to myself a little longer – follow from this, indirectly, and will be out in September 2015.
  • Copyediting The Machine Awakes, the second book in the Spider Wars sequence, following on from The Burning Dark. It’s not a direct sequel, but what happened in the first book certainly had repercussions. The Machine Awakes will be out in April 2015.
  • Writing The Shield with my co-conspirator Chuck Wendig. While everything is swathed in secrecy at the moment, I think we should be able to give you some more info and even show a little artwork very soon. And in the meantime, you can find us at our shared comics tumblr, Adam And Chuck Make Comics.
  • Editing the big secret novel. I’ve been dropping hints about this for about three months and it still hasn’t been announced, but hot dang, I’m looking forward to being able to talk about this book. It even has a secret cover. More on that when I’m allowed to spill the beans.
  • I’ve also got a comic short on the boil – this is something of a long-term project with a good artist friend of mine. Alas, nothing I can talk about yet. Again.

All of which is keeping me pretty busy, but in a rather exciting kind of way. I’m off to London tomorrow for two days of meetings, but I’ll be back later in the week to post more info on some of the above projects.

 

LonCon and week of SF schedule

Nine Worlds was brilliantly brilliant. I loved it. It’s the best UK con. It’s inclusive, diverse, young and enthusiastic. It’s a bunch of people geeking out about everything from books to comics to knitting to cosplay to RPGs and more besides. I may attempt to list the people I want to thank for making it such a great weekend, but I’ll just leave someone off and my Christmas card haul this year will be reduced. I’ll think about it, once I’ve recovered from the next week of events. But I met lots of new people, made new friends, and got to waffle on about The Myth Makers for far, far too long. Good times.

Because, as Paul Cornell has already mentioned, we are now entering the Week of Death/Hell/Geek/SFF (take your pick!). I’m home for one day before heading back down to London. Here’s my schedule:

Fantasy in the Court (12th August, 2014)

Cecil Court, London, 6.00pm – 10.00pm
Join me and a bazillion other authors in this amazing celebration of SFF. Full listing at the website. Tickets are £5, redeemable on a book bought on the night. My novel The Burning Dark will be on sale – not sure about any others, but if you want to bring anything else along to sign I’m more than happy to oblige, but the organisers have requested that you limit anything you bring to two items.

Angry Robot and Titan Books Summer Invasion (13th August, 2014)

Forbidden Planet, Shaftesbury Avenue, London, 6.00pm – 7.00pm
Angry Robot and Titan are joining forces for a big night at Forbidden Planet! I’ll signing alongside Chris Achilleos, Madeline Ashby, Gregory Benford, Wesley Chu, Cory Doctorow, Phil and Kaja Foglio, Anne Lyle, Ramez Naam, Kim Newman, VE Schwab, Charles Stross, Mike Shevdon and Danie Ware. There will be books for sale. Again, happy to sign anything you want to bring along. This event is free and unticketed, so come along and say hi!

LonCon 3, the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention (14 – 18th August, 2014)

Thursday 14th August

Signing
3.00pm – 4.30pm, Exhibits Hall Signing Space (Level 1)
Bring stuff and I will sign it! There will be dealer’s room at the con with my stuff on sale. I’m aware this is a bit of a dead signing slot, so if you can’t make it so early in the con, grab me if you see me elsewhere, or after a panel, or tweet me and we can meet up.

Reading
6.00pm – 6.30pm, London Suite 1 (Level 0)
Might dig out something special for this one… I’m not going to read for a whole half hour, but I might pick a couple of new things.

Friday 15th August

Welcome Party
9.00pm – 11.00pm, FanActivity Tent (Level 0)
If this is your first convention, or you’re just a bit worried about coming to such a big event, come along to our introductory mixer, where our hosts will find out what you want from Loncon and what your genre favourites are, answer your questions, and introduce you to fellow newbies. Come and start your convention here, and make some new friends.
Paul Cornell, Adam Christopher, Emma Newman, Gareth L Powell, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Marcus Gipps

Saturday 16th August

Kaffeeklatsch
12.00pm – 1.00pm, London Suite 5 (Level 0)
Come and have a coffee, maybe some biscuits (I make no promises however – if anyone knows of a local shop I can grab some, let me know!), and we can talk about stuff! This event requires attendees to sign up, so check out the programme booklet and any notices you may see around the con.

Sunday 17th August

Authors Accept, Encourage, and Create Fan Works Too
11.00am – 12.00pm, Capital Suite 7+12 (Level 3)
Fanfiction, fan art, and other forms of transformative works can be a sensitive topic with authors understandably having mixed reactions to works based on their creations. In this session four successful authors embrace forms of creative (not-for-profit!) output based upon their works. They discuss the benefits and difficulties of having fans creatively engage with their material. Beyond that they openly talk about their own experiences with fan works, whether they have written, still write, or read fanfiction or produce other forms of fan works.
Karen Hellekson, Seanan McGuire, Adam Christopher, Karen Miller, Patrick Rothfuss

Detectives in SF
4.30pm – 6.00pm, Capital Suite 10 (Level 3)
The detective character has always been with us, but more and more we’re seeing new narrative shapes creeping into the genre as part of a noir movement. What is noir in a literary sense? How is it differentiated from hard boiled? How has the detective had to adapt to survive in a science fictional world? Why such an increase in the prevalence of crime oriented science fiction?
Heidi Lyshol, Erin Hunter, Peter F Hamilton, Jan Siegel, Adam Christopher

Phew! See you Tuesday!

Updated event schedule for Nine Worlds/LonCon

So, hey, moving house. Fun, right? Erm… well. Anyway, Nine Worlds and LonCon are right around the corner, so I have a couple of updates to my schedule. I’ll repost the whole thing here – new bits are in RED. Also added room details for everything.

Nine Worlds (8 – 10th August, 2014)

Friday 8th August

Writing Transmedia: ideas that cross formats and boundaries
6.45pm  8.00pm (All The Books; County A)
Because a story can also be an app, computer game, vlog, fanvid, web series, docu-drama, interactive ebook, diary comic, inter-sensory experience or any other format currently existing or yet to exist not listed here. Kind of against the spirit of the thing, if you ask us. Guess you’ll just have to go to it in person.
Barry Nugent, Anna Caltabiano, Simon Guerrier, Adam Christopher

Saturday 9th August

Signing
10.00am – 10.30am, Comm West
The signing slots are actually an hour long, but I’m a little tied up Saturday morning so if you want to come along and get me to deface something, you must be IN like a NINJA at the Forbidden Planet table in Commonwealth West. Failing that, do feel free to ambush me elsewhere at the con – after a panel, or at the bar, or if you see me wandering around.

Dis/Continuity: long-running characters, change, evolution and disruption
1.30pm  2.45pm (Comics Fandom; Royal A)
The challenges, joys, disappointments and outright confusion of writing, following and redesigning characters with 60+ years of sometimes-not-entirely-straightforward back story.
Paul Cornell, Kieron Gillen, Nat Wilkinson, Misha Sumra, Adam Christopher

Working with Artists: drawing up professional relationships
6.45pm – 8.00pm (All The Books, County A)
How can artists get the best from their writers, and vice versa? Advice about making great things.

Sunday 10th August

Anytime, Anywhere

The Doctor can travel anywhere in time and space, and the pure historical story was a regular occurrence in the early days of the show, but has been seen only once since 1966. Would a pure historical work in today’s Doctor Who? Is there any time or place the Doctor should go that he hasn’t yet? Which historical figures does he really need to get around to meeting?
Simon Guerrier, Adam Christopher, Joanne Harris, Anna Jackson

Marketing & Social Media: getting the word out
11.45am – 1.00pm (All The Books; County A)
How do you get the word out about your book? How can events, social media, publicity and marketing work? Tips and tricks from the experts.
Q&A with Tom Hunter, Adam Christopher, Danie Ware, Sophie Calder and James Oswald

Never Just “Comic Book Guy”: celebrating diverse comics fandom

Cover and synopsis for THE MACHINE AWAKES

As an author, one thing that never gets old is seeing a cover for a new book. And with Tor, I’m super lucky to have Art Director Irene Gallo and designer extraordinaire Will Staehle looking after me.

Over at SF Signal, they revealed the cover for The Machine Awakes, the second book in the Spider Wars sequence that begins with The Burning Dark. Click to enlarge!


TheMachineAwakes-897


As humanity fights a destructive mechanical race, a government agent finds a conspiracy far closer to home in this far future space opera set in the Spider War universe of The Burning Dark.

In the decades since the human race first made contact with the Spiders—a machine race capable of tearing planets apart—the two groups have fought over interstellar territory. But the war has not been going well for humankind, and with the failure of the Fleet Admiral’s secret plan in the Shadow system, the commander is overthrown by a group of hardliners determined to get the war back on track.

When the deposed Fleet Admiral is assassinated, Special Agent Von Kodiak suspects the new guard is eliminating the old. But when the Admiral’s replacement is likewise murdered, all bets are off as Kodiak discovers the prime suspect is one of the Fleet’s own, a psi-marine and decorated hero—a hero killed in action, months ago, at the same time his twin sister vanished from the Fleet Academy, where she was training to join her brother on the front.

As Kodiak investigates, he uncovers a conspiracy that stretches from the slums of Salt City to the floating gas mines of Jupiter. There, deep in the roiling clouds of the planet, the Jovian Mining Corporation is hiding something, a secret that will tear the Fleet apart and that the Morning Star, a group of militarized pilgrims linked to terrorist atrocities across the whole of Fleetspace, is determined to uncover.

But there is something else hiding in Jovian system. Something insidious and intelligent, machine-like and hungry.

The Spiders are near.


The Machine Awakes is out April 2015.

THE LA TRILOGY starts today with the prequel novelette, BRISK MONEY!

Today is the day! My new novelette, Brisk Money, is up at Tor.com!

“BRISK MONEY”
Written by Adam Christopher
Edited by Paul Stevens
Illustration by Gérard Dubois

Raymond Chandler famously hated science fiction, saying “They pay brisk money for this crap?” However, it has recently come to light that Chandler secretly wrote a series of stories and novels starring a robot detective. He then burnt all the manuscripts and went on writing his noir masterpieces. Unknown to Chandler, his housekeeper had managed to save some of these discarded manuscripts from the grate in his study, preserving the tales for future generations.


Brisk Money is a prequel to The LA Trilogy, a set of three novels starring Raymond Electromatic, a robot PI, which you can learn more about here. The first volume is due out in late 2015.

And you know what? I really like Brisk Money a lot. It’s a lot of fun, and I hope people really enjoy it! It’s also available from iBooks and Amazon (UK | US) – please feel free to leave a review there!

Tor.com interview with me and Chuck Wendig about THE SHIELD

This week Chuck and I gave our first proper interview about The Shield, the superhero comic we are writing for Dark Circle Comics. You can check that out over at Tor.com!

Meanwhile, Dark Circle editor Alex Segura has spoken to Comic Book Resources about the relaunch of the whole line, while the new design of the Shield herself is given a once-over at Project: Rooftop.

Excite!
