Because Sometimes There's Just Nothing Interesting to Say About Me...

Cancertown artist Stephen Downey has posted the details of his adventures at the Feile art exhibition in Belfast over on his blog. Congratulations are due.

Double congratulations, in fact - as he's also been commissioned to draw an 8-pager for Bob Heske's Cold Blooded Chillers anthology. I'm a sucker for anthology titles and a big fan of Stephen's in any case, so I'll for damn sure be snapping this up when it comes out this Autumn.

There is actually a small item of Cy news, now that I think of it. I've just submitted a first draft script for Parasite Lost, a short story to be included in Insomnia's upcoming Insomniac's Guide to Cancertown (as recently announced over on their blog). It's an origin story of sorts: 12 pages of Crosshair-related mayhem and a troubled teenager strangling a cat on page one. Fun times ahead.



  1. There is always something interesting to say about you - mostly being about how much you rock my world!

    Well done to Stephen, too.

  2. Yay a blog post that's mostly about me and I didn't write it myself :P

    If only strangling a cat was the worst thing the boy ended up doing :) (although Aimee would say it was).


  3. Heh, well you know how it is. I saw a world, it needed rocking, so I rocked it.

  4. You know, there are some days when you get a letter from the tax man saying you owe £2K in overpaid tax credits you have never received or claimed for, but then there are others when you get to write about a cat-strangling cancer patient who falls into an alternate reality where he gets possessed by a homeless burn victim's imaginary friend and turns into a monster who can see the future and kill you with his eyes. Swings and roundabouts, really...

    ... oh, and "spoiler alert", by the way. ;)

  5. Best...spoiler...ever!!!!
