I actually recorded the unabridged audiobook of Spireclaw a while ago. It's read by yours truly (obviously), the whole thing comes in at about 4 hours, and all 29 chapters are available to download as individual MP3 files so you can grab a few, stick them on your iPod and come back later for more when you're ready. I'm not sure if this is the first free online novel to be made into an audiobook as well. Perhaps it is. I hope you like it. Click here to go straight to the page the chapters are listed on. And if you haven't already read Spireclaw, what are you waiting for? Summer's here. You like to sit outside in the garden or on the beach with your headphones on. Why not listen to a free audiobook? Now's the perfect time to find out what the mystery of Spireclaw is all about.

I've just added a new short story to Binary Light. It's called Gallileo's Tides. I'd been toying with the idea for a couple of years now and was never quite sure how to end it. I hope you like it. Click here to go straight to the story.
I never thought I would do it, and God knows I've resisted it till now, but I was badgered at work yesterday by 3 colleagues asking me if I was on it. They were all in their early twenties. This is the Web 2.0 generation right? Now I feel old, ten years ago I remember getting excited about ICQ and I can see the same enthusiasm in these younger folk! So they sat and watched while I accessed my profile, which I had created a while back but had not gone any further with. Then I found that I had a whole heap of friend requests from old school pals. After that I decided to play around with the Google City thing to see how many places I've been to, which was quite fun.

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to Linda in Dallas for allowing me to put a quote from her recent email to me on the Spireclaw homepage. It's really nice to get positive feedback from readers who've read my work and connected with it. So, thanks again Linda.
