• 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!

Farewell Charles Brown

All of us at Voyager are saddened to hear of the death of Charles Brown, publisher, editor, and co-founder of Locus magazine.

Our condolences to his family and friends and our best wishes to those who will continue to publish Locus magazine.

Locus has a notice about Charles’ life here.

“A magazine needs constant change. It needs the editor to look at each issue as an outsider and see what should evolve — change the emphasis, the look, etc. It should be done slowly, but it should be done. Ian Ballantine was the most successful and innovative publisher ever, but he also said that when you got something right was the time to start worrying because it would only be right for a little while. It’s why I’m turning more and more of the magazine over to other people, why I’m retiring as writer and editor. I’ll still be involved as publisher, but others have to supply that outsider/insider look. Now I’ll be able to step back and look at the magazine and laugh at myself, because if you can’t laugh, you’re in trouble.” Charles Brown, September 2002, Locus interview
