As I type this, I’ve recently returned from my first trip to my local comics shop since the lockdown began. It was a five-mile walk there and back in 29 degrees so I’m a little puffed, but boy does it feel good to regain some semblance of the antediluvian ways.
As for the rest of the month, the big happening for me was the release of my Omega Factor tie-in novel Divinity, available in audiobook-only form read by Louise Jameson. I tried to ensure that it would be enjoyable even to people unfamiliar with the original 1979 TV series, so if you haven’t done so already, check it out.
Other than that, much of my July was spent on doing Hugo Award reviews for WWAC and Splatterpunk Award reviews for this blog. Now that those are mostly finished, I’m looking forward to having time for other projects next month.
