I spent much of yesterday lunchtime in a Fleet Street pub in the company of Ian Whates, Pat Cadigan and John Meaney - and very good company they all were, too - signing the sign-in sheets for the limited edition of Subterfuge. Two hundred and fifty sheets, and not one signature the same as the last.
Anyway, Ian sent me the cover art today and I know you're all really keen to see it, so here it is.



'Nuff said.

Isn't it? I don't know who did the art, but I can ask, if you're interested.

I was too humble to mention it, of course, but *cocky swagger* I've finally fought my way up out of `...and more.' Although the limited edition, as I said, has stories by The Two Ians and Storm Constantine, so I've been relegated for that one. But, yeah. First time in my career, I think.

Ta very much. I do feel a bit of a fraud; I only sent the story to Ian because someone mentioned it to him. My hand to God, I thought he just wanted to read it. Which would have been fine by me.

It is. I know Neal Asher slightly, and Thog and I published Sarah Singleton, back in the day, and I've now met Pat and John, but the rest of them are going...who...?

It is, isn't it? For an operation which literally runs on a wing and a prayer and the boundless energy and optimism of Ian Whates, Newcon always put out books of extraordinary beauty.

Pretty, pretty! And the name placement ain't too shabby either. Hugs and congratulations, Jean Marie

Many thanks. I knew having a surname starting with a letter in the top half of the alphabet would work in my favour one day...

The craic was very nice. I'd never met John before, and I'd only met Pat briefly, and as I said they were very good company. The pub...well, it was a Fleet Street pub. Not my favourite thing in the world but this one's better than most of them.
