I’m Going to The Capitol

Doctor Who

Welcome to my Wednesday Blog. And I hope to be seeing some of you this weekend!

The Capitol

I’m a guest at this weekend’s (2nd/3rd April) Doctor Who Appreciation Society convention The Capitol, at the Crowne Plaza Gatwick. It’s been sold out for ages, but if you’re going, do say hello.

Amazing how that image from a Dave Gibbons Who comic has gone so far.

Rosebud is Out in April! And Tamsyn Muir Blurbed It!

Rosebud is my forthcoming (on April 26th) gonzo hard SF novella from Tor.com Publishing. It’s a spaceship book with lots of comedy, lots of science and a bit of wallop. Here’s the blurb:

“The crew of the Rosebud are, currently, and by force of law, a balloon, a goth with a swagger stick, some sort of science aristocrat possibly, a ball of hands, and a swarm of insects. Digitally speaking, that is. The ship has assembled its crew of sentient artificial intelligences to discuss an unusual object picked up by its sensors. They have no idea what this encounter will mean for the fate of all existence. Nor will they remember. The story is a humorous tale in the vein of Douglas Adams with lots to say about choice, reality, programming, and what it means to be a person.”

And now we have a wonderful blurb from the amazing author of Gideon the Ninth and its sequels, Tamsyn Muir, who calls the book “an elegant, elegiac examination of identity, fictionality, God and humanity itself — but also a very, very funny story about a crew of dopes. I love them all, except Bob. (In actuality Bob sort of broke my heart!)”

Thank you so much, Tamsyn!

You can find many more details, including how to order from several US bookstores, here. And if you want to pre-order from Amazon UK, you can do that here.

The Peter Watts quote is lovely too!

Wild Cards: The Drawing of Cards

That’s the title of a new comic series from Marvel, which I’ll be writing, and the first artist of which is the great Mike Hawthorne. It’s the start of an adaptation of the first volume of George R.R. Martin and Melinda Snodgrass’ epic, decades-spanning shared world of super heroes, written by a collective of brilliant authors. As a member of that collective myself, I’m particularly delighted to be bringing this, the real world take that came before Watchmen, that’s influenced everything since, to Marvel.

Wild Cards: The Drawing of Cards #1 will be out on June 1st, and you can read all the details here.

Three Little Wishes Pre-Order!

I’ve got a fantasy rom com graphic novel coming out from Legendary Comics on July 12th. It’s called Three Little Wishes. It’s about a finnicky contract lawyer who frees a fairy from a bottle, gets three wishes and decides to fix the world. But the rom of the com gets in the way. The rest of the creative team is amazing: Steven Yeowell on art; Pippa Bowland on colour art and Simon Bowland on letters.

And now Amazon UK and US have put up their pre-orders for the book, at those links! And you are also now able to order the book from your favourite book store or local comic shop!

Cover by Yeowell and Bowland.

Questing Time

On Sunday, 10th April, from 7pm, I’ll be playing Dungeons and Dragons live for an audience, together with the regular Questing Time comedy show team, at The Phoenix pub near Oxford Circus in London. You can get all the details and buy tickets here.

Very kind of them!

Hammer House of Podcast

Hammer House of Podcast, in which myself and Lizbeth Myles watch the Hammer horror movies in UK release order, is out on the 13th of every month, with our March episode being about Dracula Has Risen From the Grave. You can get these episodes free wherever you normally get your podcasts, as well as on our site, but if you sign up to our Patreon, for any sum of money from £1/$1, you get an extra episode every month too, on the 27th, in which we watch Patron requested movies and films from other horror studios of the same era.

We’re also now offering advertising slots (on the regular episodes only) to anyone who’s got something they’d like to sell to that highly engaged audience. If you’d like to ask us about advertising something of yours, just drop us a line at webcornell@gmail.com with HHoP in the subject line. (We reserve the right to not take your ad for any reason.)

Poster by Tom Chantrell, and, because publicity photos of Lee weren’t available, that’s him as Dracula!

My Online Store

I now have a shop on Ko-fi, selling signed and personalised copies of a lot of my work.  There’s even one remaining item for which I’ve activated the ‘pay whatever you like’ option, so you can get them for just the price of postage!  There are also a couple of pretty rare items, and when they’re gone they’re gone.

There’s worldwide shipping, for which I’ve put up prices to the most usual destinations.  (If you’re from somewhere else, leave a comment telling me what you want and I’ll calculate you a shipping price.)

Ko-fi is most often used as a tip jar for creators, and sure you can buy me a coffee if you want to, but really the aim is to get signed items to those who want them.   You’ll find the big, welcoming button saying ‘Buy Signed Items’ on the front page of this site.

Target Covers for Short Stories

Doctor Who

These are some covers I did for Paul Burns. 
The first is a cover for a collection of his short stories - which had previously seen the light of day in a number of fan publications.

He also commissioned me to do faux Target book covers for each of his six stories. Despite the lack of visual references, I'm really pleased at how these came out. (Yes, that is a Z Victor car from Z Cars on the first cover!)
Thanks to Paul for allowing me to share these. 

If you have a short story you want a cover for, let me know. You can contact me on Twitter and we can work something out.

Doctor Who

Welcome to my Wednesday Blog. As well as my forthcoming graphic novel now being up for pre-order, there’s a great Bernice Summerfield offer, and I’ll be seeing some of you this weekend!

Three Little Wishes Pre-Order!

I’ve got a fantasy rom com graphic novel coming out from Legendary Comics on July 12th. It’s called Three Little Wishes. It’s about a finnicky contract lawyer who frees a fairy from a bottle, gets three wishes and decides to fix the world. But the rom of the com gets in the way.

Cover by Yeowell and Bowland.

Bernice Summerfield Offer

Until 23.59 UK time on 27th March, you can enlarge your Bernice Summerfield collection with this amazing sale from Big Finish, where audio plays starring my interstellar archaeologist character are being sold off on CD, while stocks last, from as little as £2.49! (There are also some discounted bundles.) The offer includes the very first Bernice CD, also the first thing BF ever released, Jac Rayner’s wonderful adaptation of my own Oh No It Isn’t!

I know Lee Sullivan drew Benny, but who did the rest of that cover?

Myth Makers Live

It sold out almost immediately, but this Saturday, 26th March, I’ll be one of six guests having their onstage interviews recorded for later video release as part of Myth Makers Live at the Colour House Theatre in London. If you’re going, here’s when everything is! (And do say hello.)

It’s great to be interviewed by Lisa Bowerman.
