Book of Pahnl's a History of Us

Pahnl’s A History of Us Book

Thursday, November 5th, 2015

The book of A History of Us Book by Pahnl that I stumbled on with friends at the Herbert Gallery and Museum in Coventry in September arrived today and its really gorgeous. I’d wondered how the 40m long artwork with accompanying text could be broken down for the book – each page is a small […]

Floodgate by Alistair MacLean

Friday, October 30th, 2009

I picked up a lot of Alistair MacLean novels as reprints at a local book shop a few years ago and enjoyed a lot of them but there were a few gaps. So when I spotted Floodgate going for 75p in a charity shop I thought I’d fill the gap and give it a go. […]

Dark Host Out Now

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

It only seems like yesterday that Kim had a new story out but it was all of a couple of weeks ago (just enough time to read an Ian Rankin novel and a couple of history books). Her latest novella, Dark Host, was a Brava finalist and I’ve read a bit of it before so […]

Kim's Got Her Own Unofficial Fan Club

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

Kim’s now got her very own unofficial Kim Knox fan club. Won’t be too long before she has a has a twitter hash tag all of her own too #kimknox 😉

In Space No One Can Hear You Scream…

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

…or pant, moan, or make any other vocalisations that might wake the neighbours for three hundred yards.

Kim’s got another story out, Demonic Attraction, and while it’s science fiction and includes aliens from what I’ve read so far its not a remake of Alien but its not for the faint of heart when it comes to naughtiness.

7% and Rising – the wait is over

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

The first thing I remember reading of Kim’s was the start of 7% and Rising. She’s finally finished it and it’s out now. I’ve not had a chance to read the whole book yet but I’m looking forward to it. If you can learn more about 7% and Rising at Kim’s Blog or buy it […]

Nimue's Price Out Now

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2007

Kim’s first fantasy story (stop sniggering at the back) came out today. I read Nimue’s Price a few months ago before it went to be editor and really, really enjoyed it. If you like your fantasy with a twist or your Camelot a little unexpected I’d recommend it. In fact even if you like your […]

Past Lies

Tuesday, April 17th, 2007

Three blog posts in a day here and several more on Vue News and Disavowed-1010! I didn’t want to finish today without giving Kim’s new book a proper plug… I’m not going to pretend to be a big reader of romantic fiction. Until I read Kim’s previous story Buying Mackenzie’s Baby I think the last […]

Buying Mackenzie's Baby Now in Print

Friday, December 22nd, 2006

Kim‘s book Buying Mackenzie’s Baby is now available in tree based media so I no longer have an excuse not to buy it. She tells me the best place to buy it is from My Book Store and More but it will also available on Amazon.

Historical Novel Weakness

Saturday, September 23rd, 2006

I have a weakness for historical novels set in the Napoleonic era. I’d not read any of Alexander Kent’s Bolitho books before. Their a good read but somehow they just make me wish C.F. Forester were still writing Hornblower.
