Underground 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, and 23 now live at Patreon.

Damn! I've not posted anything here for ages. I tend to update the Facebook group, The Sect, as my primary info conduit, so if you're not a member of that group yet, do join, that way you won't miss any updates.
But anyway, I came here not to talk about Facebook groups, but to say that Underwood and Flinch: Underground Episode 23 has just gone live at Patreon. Of course, I now see that I neglected to mention that episodes 17 - 22 have also gone live over the last few months, so I'll mention that now too 😄

Night Crossing - The Graphic Novel!

For some years now, I've been posting updates about the development of a graphic novel version of my short story, Night Crossing by the talented young artist Amanda Whipp. Well, I'm delighted to announce that the finished work is now available from Amazon worldwide. 

Here's a sample page from early on in the story, a scene that's familiar to many of you, I'm sure ...

When you look at the details in the penciling, you can certainly appreciate the amount of time and work that's gone into creating this fang-tastic inclusion into the printed world of Underwood and Flinch.

You can order your copy online here: Night Crossing: The Graphic Novel

Many congratulations to Amanda on the publication of Night Crossing. I'm sure it will be the first of many great works in years to come. Huzzah!!

Mike Bennett to read Extracts from U&F at Wexworlds, Ireland

Every now and then, I like to appear. Usually at home, but sometimes in public. My last public reading of any of my work was 2003 in Brighton reading from the first edition of One Among the Sleepless. Since then, my readings have been restricted to podcasts only. But on Saturday 7th May, I shall be making my first live appearance as an author in thirteen years at the Wexworlds sci-fi / fantasy / horror festival at Clayton Whites Hotel in Wexford, Ireland. I'll be reading scenes from Underwood and Flinch, giving a talk on podcasting, and answering questions from the audience. 

I hope to be able to get a live stream of this event online so you can watch wherever you are, and hopefully send in any questions that you may have as well. I'm still exploring the technology options in how to make that happen (Facebook, Periscope, etc) but I'm optimistic we can pull it off somehow. Watch this space for more news, and if you can make it along on Saturday 7th May, I'll be on at 1:00 pm.  

A full schedule of Wexworlds events is available to view here.
