Another Guest Blog

Some time ago, I made a conscious decision to switch off Google alerts — since I have a namesake who also writes about SF, and I also share a name with an England footballer of the 60’s and 70’s, a disproportionately large number of Google alerts had naff all to do with me. (And it’s even worse if you set GA to work on titles…you would not believe how many alerts come up based on ‘Winter’ and ‘Song’!)

However, this does occasionally backfire — as in the case of ‘Filming Winter Song‘ which is over at Andy Remic’s Blog. In fact, it’s been over there for a week now; Andy has had major problems with internet connectivity, and I should have kept an eye out for it. My bad.

So without further ado, here’s the link to Andy’s blog, where you can read all about his war with Sky and E.On, his tenth novel, and if you scroll down the pages a ways, my first thoughts on how the worlds of film and print might overlap in the case of my own fiction. 

Maybe I’ll have a go at writing one for Damage Time, as well.

    Man, those Antarctic katabatic winds are harsh to get all the way to Iceland. You might want to adjust that.

    Sadly, if WS was filmed, you’d probably get Justin Beiber as Karl and Ice-T as Ragnar. But a lot of the scenes are very cinematic. Give it five years, and you might be able to film it on your desktop in pure CGI.


    (I’ve actively sought an excuse to use the word “katabatic” in normal conversation for several years now. Thank you for the opportunity.)
