Needing no introduction

Welcome to the new home of Aliya and Neil's blog.

You may know us from such books as Three Things About Me, Nicolo's Gifts and Mean Mode Median, or from anthologies including
The Adventure of the Missing Detective: And 19 of the Year's Finest Crime and Mystery Stories!, The Elastic Book of Numbers, Poe's Progeny and Gratia Placenti.

Did you also know Neil ghost-edited Book of Voices, the not-for-profit anthology produced for Sierra Leone PEN and Aliya's short stories have appeared on Pulp.net, McSweeney's Internet Tendency and GuardianUnlimited?

We are also close to finishing our first co-written novel. If we can iron out the creases, dot the t's and cross the i's, we hope to find a publisher.

Aliya is represented by Jane Gregory. Neil was until recently represented by a picture of a chicken.

And for anyone not knowing this crucial fact, the launch party for Light Reading starts at 18:30, Thursday 28 February. It'll be at Goldboro Books and there will be FREE WINE. Here's a review by fellow Macmillan author Alis Hawkins.

Good to see you guys have joined the all-devouring groupthink of Blogger!

I've updated your links on my blog, and on the MNW sidebar. (Actually, Aliya's MNW link pointed to her website rather than the blog. Which would you prefer?)

You ought to drop a note on the MNW group blog letting people know you've moved.

Hi, Matt.

I'm feeling somewhat inadequate with this sudden splurge of MNWers. Quick, someone publish me!

Welcome aboard. This is another blog I can read in the morning before I have to concede defeat and start work...

I like the green. It suits the whole ethos of the blog.
