• Fiona McIntosh: Voyager Author of the Month

    Fiona McIntosh was born and raised in Sussex in the UK, but also spent early childhood years in West Africa. She left a PR career in London to travel and settled in Australia in 1980. She has since roamed the world working for her own travel publishing company, which she runs with her husband. She lives in Adelaide with her husband and twin sons. Her website is at www.fionamcintosh.com.

    Her latest book, The Scrivener's Tale, is a stand-alone and takes us back to the world of Morgravia from her very first series, The Quickening:

    About The Scrivener's Tale:

    In the bookshops and cafes of present-day Paris, ex-psychologist Gabe Figaret is trying to put his shattered life back together. When another doctor, Reynard, asks him to help with a delusional female patient, Gabe is reluctant... until he meets her. At first Gabe thinks the woman, Angelina, is merely terrified of Reynard, but he quickly discovers she is not quite what she seems.

    As his relationship with Angelina deepens, Gabe's life in Paris becomes increasingly unstable. He senses a presence watching and following every move he makes, and yet he finds Angelina increasingly irresistible.

    When Angelina tells Gabe he must kill her and flee to a place she calls Morgravia, he is horrified. But then Angelina shows him that the cathedral he has dreamt about since childhood is real and exists in Morgravia.

    A special 10th Anniversary edition of her first fantasy book, Myrren's Gift, will be released in December!

Milo Ventimiglia and Masi Oka Coming To Australia

Milo Ventimiglia And Masi Oka Coming To Australia

Milo Ventimiglia and Masi Oka, the stand out stars of Heroes, are coming to Oz in the beginning of September.

For those of you saying ‘Milo who?’ … two words: Peter Petrelli, he who is the object of worship of such facebook groups as:Peter Petrelli can absorb me anytime and Future Peter Petrelli will be the father of my future babies.

Well done, Peter, you know you’ve made it big when …

Oh yeah, and Masi Oka plays Hiro – humorous comic book and real life hero with a heart and some sword-wielding skills (now) and the ability to stop TIME and go back and forth in time … which is a skill I always long for when I wake up on Monday mornings.

Anyway, this post was to tell you that our Heroes are coming to Australia, Channel 7 finally put Heroes back on (without bothering to advertise) on the Wednesday night before the Olympics – a 2 hour marathon during which I marvelled at Sylar’s bushy brows. And it was for me to use the ‘Press This’ feature on this blog, because I just realised what it was for.

Technically ineptly yours,


(somewhat bad to be technically crapola in an sf/f blog – but then, my perceived ability with HTML is [an unfulfilled] fantasy. 🙂

  1. So Heroes has been on and I have missed it? This is *so* not good.

  2. I’m afraid so – no advertising at all! And it was a new episode – taking off where last season stopped – two hours worth! They might repeat it?
