• 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!

     

     

The dead rise …

A little while ago, we asked those lovely Tweeters following @voyagerbooks which authors they would like to see rise from the dead (zombie trend much?) and write one final, slightly grimy because of the rot, book.

A selection of your answers:

Arthur Miller (Undeath of a Salesman?)

Kurt Vonnegut (too many potential comments to even start here!)

Emily Bronte (we thought sf/f when asking the question but the Brontes have been brought kicking and screaming into the era of zombie rather recently and successfully!)

Tolkien (Return of the King taken rather literally?)

C S Lewis (poses interesting questions about the end of The Last Battle?)

P G Wodehouse (He’s back, Jeeves)

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Anyone else? Sound out the call!

  1. I prefer to leave the dead undisturbed. Nothing good ever came from bringing someone back.

    (Arenadd agrees).

  2. Oscar Wilde! OMG yes!

    Katie’s being practical and sage to say leave the dead undisturbed. It would be troublesome, I am sure, to raise that man in particular, but he’s a genius and I have so many questions for him. Like, did he really study under Madame Blavatsky? He has so many esoteric subtext in his work and there were rumours!

    Also Jules Verne. OMG. That would be amazing!

  3. Good one, re: the Wodehouse title. 🙂
