Crowley loved a curry

June 19th, 2013 at 5:31 am

Crowley WTW C6 P3 (Medium)

AC was know to hold curry parties where he would cook up a pot of his speciality – glacier curry, the recipe perfected during his mountaineering expeditions. It’s reported that during his final days at Netherwood one of his favourite meals to take in his room was a plate of sardines sprinkled with curry powder. That’s why I asked Roy H Stewart to show a tin on the sideboard.

One of his final requests was that his friends gather together to share a curry on the anniversary of his death. On the 1st of December 1948 Lady Frieda Harris, Gerald Yorke and twelve others did just that.

Project Luna: 1947 – Diamond order code and whatnot

May 7th, 2013 at 7:44 pm

I am told that Project Luna: 1947 is listed in the May issue of Previews.

The Diamond order code is MAY13 0753. If you were to bring that number to your friendly neighbourhood comic retailer she could order you a copy. We should all do that. Yeah! Lets! The 88 page + bonus material pulp science-fiction trade paperback will breach earth orbit on July 1st.

It’s still available for pre-order on

There’s an interview with me and Jim Boswell on the Markosia website. Click here to open the pdf.

Project Luna: 1947 limited edition hardcover now available

March 20th, 2013 at 10:10 pm

The Project Luna: 1947 trade paperback won’t be released until July 1st but I hear that the publisher still has a few copies of the very limited LSCC hardcover edition in stock at their fortified storage bunker.

Jim Boswell and I are really happy with how this edition came out – it’s a thing of beauty. Jim’s artwork looks truly superb. The crappy jpeg below doesn’t do it justice.

Usual price is £15 + p&p. But Markosia have just begun a week-long special offer of £13 with free UK p&p.

Full colour. 96 pages including bonus material: sketches, script pages and things of that ilk.

Project Luna: 1947  will almost certainly never be available as a hardcover again.

The ideological fiction of capitalism is dead in Europe. Capitalism is a fiction if capital that is placed at risk for a return cannot be lost.

Lovecraft by the brilliant Ben Templesmith.

Almost as unsettling as an actual photo of the man. Superb. Thanks Ben!
