Incoming! Stuff I'm Doing This Year

Hello, and my apologies for a lengthy silence when I just didn't get around to posting much. Anyway, I've done a bumper list of stuff I'm doing between now and November, so without further ado, for you delight and delectation...

NINE WORLDS
https://nineworlds.co.uk/

Sunday 10th August 2013
I shall making a couple of appearances on panels, and generally ninja-ing myself around elsewhere. Say hello. Buy me a drink. Say hello and buy me a drink. The panels are:

Doctor Who: The Ones You Love To Hate 11:45am to 1:00pm
Jonathan L Howard, Adam Christopher, Ben Aaronovitch, David McIntee, James Swallow, Abigail Brady and Lesley McIntee

Nothing's more fun than a really hissable villain, and Doctor Who's had more than its fair share of dastardly dudes and dames over the years. What makes a perfect villain? Is it the megalomaniac schemes? A catchphrase? Or just a natty line in sinister clothes? We talk all about the nastiest people in history.

In George II & III, Renaissance London Heathrow Hotel

Doctor Who: My Best Friend 6:45pm to 8pm
From Susan all the way through to Clara Oswald, the Doctor’s companion has been a fixture of the series for as long as it’s been on the air. But who’s been the greatest of them all? Jamie? Jo? Tegan? Rose? Donna? Or do you fly the flag for Dodo or Lady Christina? Jonathan L Howard, David A. McIntee & Matt Nixon.

THE KRAKEN RISES
http://unputdownable.org/event/the-kraken-rises

Saturday 19th October 2013
Bristol is a wonderfully odd place, and “The Kraken Rises” illustrates that perfectly, both literally and metaphorically. The gig is that folk who want to write turn up and discover that the arrival of comet will trigger much weirdness around the city. These doughty folk are sent hither and yon between locations where they bump into assorted reprobates (Hello there!), who help them out as they put together their own story about The Doom That Came to Bristol. Or didn’t. The writers can do whatever they like within the broad framework, and the best stories will end up in a proper published anthology organised by the lovely folk at Angry Robot. Helping the peripatetic writers on the day will be Gaie Sebold (Babylon Steel, Dangerous Gifts), David Gullen (Shopocalypse), Emma Newman (Between Two Thorns, 20 Years Later), Gareth L. Powell (The Recollection, Ack-Ack Macaque), Tim Maughan (Paintwork, “Limited Edition”), and myself.

Bristol city centre, around and about in currently secret places.


JOHANNES CABAL: THE FEAR INSTITUTE NORTH AMERICAN PUBLICATION DATE
http://us.macmillan.com/johannescabalthefearinstitute/JonathanHoward

Tuesday 1st October 2013
Johannes Cabal: The Fear Institute finally gets its much belated US publication day. Cabal has upped test tubes and defected to Thomas Dunne Books, an imprint of Macmillan, who will also be publishing the fourth Cabal in late 2014.


BRISTOL-CON
http://www.bristolcon.org/

Saturday 26th October 2013
I was on a couple of panels last year, and that’s likely to be the case again this. Bristol-con is a very friendly one day do with this year’s guests of honour being Philip Reeve, Storm Constantine, and Mark Buckingham. If you can make it, I’d throughly recommend that you do so.

Doubletree Hotel, Bristol.


WORLD FANTASY CONVENTION
http://www.wfc2013.org/

Thursday October 31st – Sunday November 3rd 2013
Nothing scheduled in stone for this one, but I shall be round and about.

Hilton Brighton Metropole


KATYA’S WAR (RUSSALKA CHRONICLES #2) PUBLICATION DATE
http://strangechemistrybooks.com/books/katyas-war-by-jonathan-l-howard/

Tuesday 5th November 2013 US and ebook publication
Thursday 7th November 2013 UK publication

Katya’s War is out on these dates, and I’m very much looking forward to its publication. I’ve had some lovely feedback from readers about Katya’s World (along with some slightly boggled comments from people who are confused and sometimes resentful that I write things that aren’t about Johannes Cabal. Considering what a pejorative term “one-trick pony” is, I never expected to be criticised for not being one. Ah, well). I have a lot of plans for “The Russalka Chronicles.” Oh, you just wait.

No release or launch day plans yet, but I think there’s likely to be something happening. Tough to get anything planned at the moment, but I have a few ideas. Watch this space.


BRISTOL-CON FRINGE
http://www.bristolcon.org/?p=2062

7:30 pm Monday 18th November 2013

I shall be doing a couple of readings in the back room of the Shakespeare Tavern (the Shakespeare on Prince Street, that is. This one: http://gkpubs.co.uk/pubs-in-bristol/shakespeare-pub/ Not the one near Temple Circus), along with Ian Milstead. I’ll probably be doing a Johannes Cabal bit and something else non-Cabal. Might even write something v. short specially.

Shakespeare Tavern, 68 Prince Street, Bristol.
