Olympic Weekend Bits

From The Guardian
The opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London was spectacular. Hats off to Danny Boyle for such an inventive, surreal show. I watched the ceremony live on Iceland's RÚV website. In America, NBC prevented live streaming and then showed an edited, butchered version at 7:30 p.m. Along with Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira's inane commentary and commercials every two minutes, it completely ruined the opening ceremony for American viewers.

I'm thrilled that my novels Remain in Light and Conquering Venus are now available for purchase online in the UK at WHSmith either as eBooks or trade paperbacks.

Many thanks to Will Kenyon for his insightful review of Remain In Light at his blog, Will Kenyon's Little Corner of the Universe. Here's a choice bit:

Stronger in voice, more sublime in style, and ultimately more intriguing than its predecessor and many of its contemporaries, Remain In Light stands as a great second entry in what Collin is calling his Venus Trilogy.
