• 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!



Last minute Christmas presents?

Winter is Coming HBO T-shirt
Arya’s Needle sword replica

What do you give the person who has all of George R R Martin’s work and complains incessently about A Feast for Crows not being out yet?

Well, you COULD get them this t-shirt that’s just come out from HBO for the tie-in TV series.
OR you could buy yourself this sword and do whatever Arya would do if someone annoyed her …*
Your choice.
*Voyager does NOT condone violence unless it is spectacular and theatrical and on TV or in a book.

Sean Bean to play Eddard Stark

The news is out – thanks to George R.R. Martin’s Not a Blog:

Sean Bean is to play Lord Eddard Stark in the HBO series of A Game of Thrones. Bean played Boromir beautifully in Lord of the Rings.

Mark Addy of A Knight’s Tale will play Robert Baratheon

More casting news over at GRRM’s blog – and loads of excitement here and at Voyager world wide! They haven’t yet cast Daenerys, Cersei and Jaime, or the Winter is Coming brood (the Starks) … so you can still dream of your ideal cast!
