Found the trailer for Disney’s adaptation of Madeleine l’Engle’s ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ (out next year) on YouTube . I stumbled across this book by accident, knowing nothing about it, when I was about ten and loved it. For some reason I’ve never forgotten the otherworldly kids playing ball and here they are back to haunt me decades later and almost just as I pictured them!

I’ve just commissioned a new cover for “A-Wolf”. It should be up and running on Amazon very soon here:
Just a note for anyone interested. The first two chapters of a proposed space opera adventure I’m working on are now available to read on goodreads..com (yon don’t have to be a member to view). Any comments welcome!
Free copy of A-Wolf available on Amazon Kindle for one day on the 16th December. Check it out here:
More fascinating stuff from the Rosetta probe. How alien can somewhere be when even the water is different from anything on Earth?
Exciting stuff with ESA pressing ahead with the new Ariane rocket:
And maybe on to Mars as well with some British input:
Going to Mars is still kind of a romantic notion in some ways but would be a massive technical achievement if it could be done. Hope it would generate some benefits here on Earth as well. Good luck to NASA with the next Orion test as well!
Technology: good thing or bad thing? It’s an old question and the obvious answer to me was always that it depends on the use we humans choose to make of it, but maybe not in the future…
Seem to remember that’s a Jules Verne story (though one I’ve never read – I remember seeing a fun cartoon version from my childhood, though). Great to see Philae’s still managed to do so much of its job (and may be back working again sometime if only for a little while).
After looking at the Big Bang Theory Lego set I found there seem to be a lot of Lego recreations of movie scenes etc. on the Internet. Finding myself with a spare few minutes a little while ago I thought I’d have a go at one too.
Since most of the recreations you’ll find are from well-known stories (and many are excellent), I thought I’d do one from something not at all even nearly well-known. See below for a scene from A-Wolf, my own literary effort (available on Kindle!). Don’t ask what’s going on here – no spoilers!
