• 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!

     

     

Those camels just don’t stop undying

An un-undead camel

The lovely people over at Terra Incognita have new podcasts for your ears …
It’s their TISF 026 Christmas Special featuring ‘In From The Snow’ written and read by Lee Battersby and
‘Undead Camels Ate Their Flesh’ written and read by Jason Fischer (audio published 15 December 2010).
Both stories are from the excellent (if we say so ourselves) 2008 anthology Dreaming Again, edited by the also excellent and lovely Jack Dann.
And while we haven’t heard Jason’s reading voice, we have heard his singing voice, detailing a certain song that ends with ‘doo dah’ and starts with ‘Undead camels ate their flesh’ … so there is no doubt this will be good listening.  For those of you with weaker knees, you may want to curl up next to someone strong while listening to the powerful but unnerving ‘In From The Snow’. Happy listening and thanks to Keith Stevenson at TISF.
