Well, that’s a relief.
Yes, please put your hands together and welcome back my new webmaster (who used to be my old webmaster, actually, until he dropped briefly out to get a real job for a while), descendant of highwaymen past, resolute Mancunian, web-gent and genre fan extraordinaire – Darren Turpin!
Darren has, as you see, totally overhauled the site and hauled it kicking and screaming into streamlined modern form. You’ll find tonnes of new linkage and functionality now, plus a fresh easy-on-the-eye colour scheme and text base. The work is actually on-going right now, we’ll have book extracts up and running shortly. But meantime, have a poke around, see what you think, and if you hit any snags, let us know. Oh, and if you’re hankering after a shiny new web-presence yourself, delivered swiftly, painlessly and professionally with a smile, you can find Darren’s services over here.
Oh yeah – and, in case you hadn’t picked it up from the multiple shout-outs on site, as of yesterday, The Dark Defiles is now out in the US in trade paperback and electronic formats.
Fireworks! Applause! Buy it!
Here in the UK, Defiles won’t hit the shelves until November 20th, but it will include a rather handsome hardcover edition, so if you’re prepared to wait that long, your patience will be richly rewarded.
