Shortly after I was interviewed by Alex Roddie back in October 2014 about my serialised sci-fi novel Low Fidelity, I was contacted by another writer, Lucas Bale, who asked if he could conduct an extended interview with me via email about my novel and my writing in general. I was happy to oblige, but it took me an inordinate amount of time to respond. Finally, last month I completed my answers to Lucas’s questions and you can read the full interview on his website. I’m extremely grateful to Lucas for his interest and support. The feeling is mutual.

It is currently available only on Vantage Point, Riccardo Mori’s compact digital magazine in Apple’s Newsstand. He publishes two issues per month. A monthly subscription costs $2.99. You can subscribe here (The first demo issue is free.)

Please take some time to explore Lucas Bale’s site, get to know him and check out his books if you love science fiction. If you’re not familiar with his work, perhaps the upcoming anthology No Way Home, set to be released on March 2, is a good starting point (see also this page). Here you can read short speculative fiction stories by Bale and other authors, all with the common theme of being lost, stranded, blocked in places from where there’s no escape, no way to return home. I’ve been graciously handed a pre-release copy and I’m enjoying it so far.
