Ytterbium Eastercon - my reading slot on Friday 19th

 

I will be at the Ytterbium Eastercon, held next weekend at the Park Inn hotel, Heathrow. As show above, I`m doing a reading on the Friday evening, 7pm, alongside two other authors – I`ll be reading from my most recent novel, Splintered Suns, then an excerpt from a short story due to appear in an anthology from Newcon Press, and an excerpt from something completely new. And as usual, I’ll be bringing along some bookmarks and posters freebies for eager followers

The monthly SciFiNow were very kind enough to help out with the reveal for my forthcoming book, SPLINTERED SUNS, by showing it on their website. Here’s the link to it, which includes a teaser summary of what readers might encounter within its vibrant pages!

.
And now, just for a bit of fun, I put together a sequence of tunes, each under a title suggesting certain aspects of the book and the various imbroglios and debacles into which my scarcely fortunate characters were thrust!
.
1) Into The Warrens  (‘Boot Killer’ by Alan Davey) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVzoJvhjUbk
2) Zeit-Heist (‘Prisoner Of  His Mind’ by Yello) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O60q6qKErwg
3) Down The Rabbithole (‘Traummaschine’ – by Cut.Rate.Box) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c-PTP4IvNCU
4) Masks In The Desert (‘Rat Eyes’ by The Blackwater Fever) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oaJZPWguWI
5) Forest Queen (‘Efflorescence’ by Androcell) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiF1cR4MCs8
6) Hunting Raven (‘Acid Rain’ by Liquid Tension Experiment) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sA079BM0MuM
7) Subterfugue (‘Karn Evil 9 Pt 1′ by ELP) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y019L45P45Y
8 ) Tempus Mutantur (‘Sleepwalkers’ by Van Der Graaf Generator) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81Y_xrARM0I
9) Mirror Dance (‘Temple Of The Insects’ by Deathstars) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1NcAojd7QY
10) Disintegration (‘Forge Of Vulcan’ by Hawkwind) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihdK402cgj0
.
So there ya go – I`m going to look into how to get all these lined up into a single youtube playlist, which would be a lot more useful I guess, but I wanted to get this v special musical mood bubble over to you quickly (and if there are any mistakes just drop me a line via my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/mike.cobley.scifi)
.
And stay tuned to this blog and to my facebook page – there will be more goodies unleashed in the runup to the books publication in December.
