• 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!



Leave George Alone!

Here’s a belated link to a great post by Voyager author Peter V Brett in defence of fellow Voyager author George R R Martin (may he live forever). George, as many know, is not known for delivering books on time. But Peter defends his right to do so. Note humorous gif on Peat’s post re: Starks.

The topic of George RR Martin (GRRM) and his ever-behind schedule Song of Ice and Fire is one that brings surprising passion from both fan and professional alike in the SF publishing world. It’s a topic I’ve discussed with friends and coworkers, people I meet at conventions and industry gatherings, my agent and editor, and everyone in between. Like abortion or Britney Spears, it seems everyone’s got an opinion, and theirs is the only right one. Jump to why Peter says Leave George Alone! And stop emailing us about it. (No, really, you can email us, but you know what the answer will be)

And that’s all for today (but I always want to add that I love Jaime Lannister, best character ever – yes, better even than Arya).
