Lord Byron's Prophecy

Lord Byron's Prophecy, Sean Eads

"... readers will be engrossed by Eads’s skillful weaving of the past and present through the troubled psychology of sympathetic, fully human characters."

Publishers Weekly

I'm dead chuffed to see Sean Eads's Lord Byron's Prophecy get a very nice review in Publishers Weekly. Where I've been doing the book doctoring for a while, this is the first novel I can officially say I was a proper bona fide editor on. Steve Berman at Lethe Press brought me in to give some feedback, and I immediately saw exactly what that review picks up on. It's a complex novel, very hard to summarise in plot terms, but fascinating and compelling stuff, powered by all manner of psychological tensions and, yes, with a real richness to the characters. Sean was an absolute pleasure to with too, open to all the suggestions I made, so I'm well happy to have been a helping hand in getting the book to its finished state. Anyhoo, it's available now for pre-order, and I encourage you all to go get a copy set aside for yourself. It's well worth checking out.

First Patreon Vid



My first Patreon reading is now posted for patrons to enjoy and/or download in video and/or audio, depending on reward level, so if anyone out there fancies a wee story for their Friday evening fun, go ye and make a pledge. A promise of even just a dollar a work should, as I understand it, get you access to the poststream, where you can currently see me resplendent in Rat Pack black suit, replete with cigarette and tumbler of booze, spinning a sweet wee bedtime yarn by the name of “The Wolf and the Three Wise Monkeys.”

Just click on the Patreon logo above or right here.

TESTAMENT at Tor.com

Niall Alexander of The Speculative Scotsman asked me some questions about the upcoming TESTAMENT for a British Fiction Focus over at Tor.com. So, if you want a wee bit more sense of what to expect come July (fingers crossed--that's a tentative release date and might shift by a wee shoogle to accommodate Unforeseen Eventualities,) go read the words.

Yeah, my Sunday School teachers told us we should be like Jesus; so I started by arguing with them.
