• 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!

Del Toro & Colbert on The Fall, monsters and keeping fear alive


Director, writer and seriously cool guy Guillermo Del Toro dropped by The Colbert Report to discuss his new book The Fall.

Following on from his heart stopping The Strain, written with Chuck Hogan, The Fall is another trip through the vast imagination of the man that created Pan’s Labyrinth. Here be vampires, but not the sparkly kind.

Guillermo reckons he  knows more about monsters than he does his family and gives some advice to Colbert on designing monsters and using fear ahead of Colbert’s upcoming March to Keep Fear Alive.

If you haven’t already read The Strain click here to start reading the book that io9 called a ‘breakneck thrill ride … the antidote to fey vampires’.

Watch the video. Read the book. Keep Fear Alive.
