Is it me? When I was a lad (not really that long ago when compared to the age of the universe) I envisioned the year 2000 as the year when we'd be all wearing silver jump suits, flying around in hover cars and eating dehydrated food cubes that required only zapping in a machine (OKAY, so we do have them, they're called micro-noodles), and yet here we are all the way into 2009. I can't believe that we're in the future all ready. It's still very surreal. But I'm very, very happy. 2009 is the year that I will finally see publication of my first book. It seems like an age since I got the big YES from a publisher, and now I'm only four and a bit months away. The book comes out from Hodder on the 14th May. I don't have to add the year each time I write that now - fan-flipping-tastic! Only 19 weeks.
Something wicked this way comes.
