Today at the Speculative Fiction Showcase, we have an interview with KB's own Geraldine Evans, so check it out.  I bet you didn't know she wrote speculative fiction, too.

    Today's featured new release at the Speculative Fiction Showcase is Carus & Mitch, a dystopian novella by Tim Major.

    As always, we're happy about submissions. Apparently, some people have been having problems with udeliverable e-mails. I'm looking into that glitch, but if that happens to you, either contact Jessica or send me a PM.

    You're welcome, Robert.

    Regarding my e-mail issues, it turns out that my ISP has suddenly started blocking e-mails from my hosting provider's mail server as spam because of reasons. I hope to get this resolved soon. In the meantime, if you've tried to contact me about the Speculative Fiction Showcase in the past few days and didn't get a response, try PMing me.

    Finally, we also have an author interview with Jarrett Rush today, so check it out.

    In other news, the e-mail problem has been solved and you should be able to reach me via the e-mail listed at the submission page at the Speculative Fiction Showcase again.

    Today at the Speculative Fiction Showcase, we have a guest post by Tim Major about cosy catastrophes and heavy knitwear SF. Because the apocalypse is obviously going to be a lot more comfortable, when you have heavy knitwear.

    As always, we're happy about submissions.

    My second book is available for pre-order, and is released 20th March.

    Excited to get back out there! My first dystopian, and I've taken the climate-change angle. I really enjoyed tackling environmental issues and building an autocratic nightmare on top.

    Take a peek if you want:

    I'll post up progress on how it's going. Wish me luck!

    Looks very interesting, Harry. Great cover, too.

    Let me know if you want a new release spotlight at the Showcase around the time of your release date.

    Today's featured new release at the Speculative Fiction Showcase is Company Daughter, book 1 in a new YA space opera series by Callan Primer, so check it out.

    As always we're happy about submissions. Unfortunately, Jessica is still in hospital (she finally got an operation date) and out of commission, so for the time being best address every e-mail to both of us.
