(Because I always seem to be busy on Saturdays!)

This weeks Sharing Saturday/Sunday features Bristol-based science fiction author (and drinking buddy!) Gareth L Powell.

Gareth is the author of the acclaimed short story collection The Last Reef, and the novel Silversands, published by Pendragon Press.  His latest novel, The Recollection (Solaris) is available for pre-order now on Amazon, and is released on September 1st.

His work has appeared in a number of recent anthologies, including Future Bristol, Dark Spires, Illuminations, and The Sixty.  He appears regularly in Interzone, where in 2007 his short story Ack-Ack Macaque was voted by the readers as their favorite of the year.  Gareth has also written a series of non-fiction articles on science fiction for The Irish Times.

His website can be found at http://www.garethlpowell.com/

Gareth will be holding launches for The Recollection at Forbidden Planet in Bristol on Thursday August 25th, and at BristolCon on October 22nd.  Come and say hello and buy him a congratulatory pint!
