My review of a fascinating history of black people in Tudor England.
A ‘real-time’ review, no less:

New story! The Night They Sacked New Rome is published in Theaker’s Quarterly Fiction 59, out now. It’s inspired by the 2011 riots and in particular by my young neighbours at the time. It’s about as cheering as my fiction ever is, so check it out.
A collection of writing, from science fiction through politics to medieval history, with some bits and bobs thrown in for good measure.
