In the mail today: Battle Royale, the penultimate issue of The Hidden Kingdom, my run on Fables spin-off, Fairest. This ain’t your Disneyfied Rapunzel. Interior art by Inaki Miranda, terrifying cover by Adam Hughes.

So I got the best ever compliment on Zoo City today. RT @mareinna: I work with immigrants & refugees. Zoo City was recommended to me by one of our African clients. He said it reminded him of home. I can’t tell you how much that means, to have twanged a chord with someone who has […]
Mandy J Watson interviewed me about writing, tech, comics and my new novel, The Shining Girls for Vodacom Now and Ulrich Knoblauch did an awesome photo shoot to accompany it. Bladerunner cosplay FTW! “Writing novels is lonely work, stuck in your head with imaginary people”. (That is not my real pink hair, alas, but it is my […]

It’s part four of The Hidden Kingdom mini-series set in Bill Willingham’s Fables universe and this issue is a doozy. Murder! Treachery! Politicking! Romance! Poison! Safe-cracking! More treachery!
