Roots of the Summer (and some great news!)

Music, My fiction

Well, I’m off to Devon and beyond for my summer holidays over the next week or two – with H, of course – so there’s going to be an August hiatus on the blog.

But, before I go, first of all some great news – Black Static have picked up ‘Changeling’, my story of homecomings, marital discord and fairy hunting. Very exciting! More news of exactly when it’ll be in print as I get it. There’s also another *interesting thing* on the go, but for the moment I’m going to keep quiet about that…

And in salute to the season, (and to come down a bit after last post’s more than a little manic X-rant), here’s the summeriest thing I’ve heard in a long time, courtesy of mighty South London dub inflected rapper Roots Manuva. Enjoy, and happy Augustitude!

And I couldn’t resist putting this up too – a classic tune, and a great video where Roots returns to his – erm – roots by hitting his old school’s sports day…
