big pimping

  • If you're a Canadian woman, you should rush out and sign up at defineyourself.ca.
    What is it? I, um, don't really know. All I know is my sisters are the evil masterminds behind the site.
  • My buddy Neil has a terrific video documentary up on the PBS/Frontline World website: India's Missing Girls. A strong cultural preference for male heirs is pushing Indian families to selectively abort as many as half a million female fetuses each year. We trekked from rural Punjab to the narrow alleys of New Delhi to find out why. With music by Grammy Award-winner, Anoushka Shankar.

Little bits of news:
  • I'm about to hand in my fourth novel, The Night Of Knives, aka "the Africa book." And boy, am I glad - I've been working on this one for some eighteen months now.
  • Last week I signed and sent off the contracts for my next project: a graphic novel for DC/Vertigo entitled The Executor. Gonna start work on that in one week's time.
  • My article Blood, Bullets, Bombs and Bandwidth just got Slashdotted. I am pleased.
  • I appear to be notorious in Nepal.
  • My Super Sekrit Projekt - super sekrit because you'd never believe me if I told you - is sitting on the desks of a half-dozen US publishers, and with luck I'll have more to say on that in the none too distant future.
  • My other Super Sekrit Projekt is under consideration by my agents and publishers. I can say no more for now.
