————————————- Joe Abercrombie, author, reports in his blog that a new book, Sharp Ends, should be ready for publication in the UK and US in April 2016. Fans loved Steven Pacey’s renditions of Joe’s First Law series, and Joe would very much like Steven to read the new series. Watch this space!
I’ve finished the last short story for my collection, Sharp Ends (you’ll find further details including the table of contents in the post below this one) so apart from compiling and giving them a final edit it’s pretty much ready for publication in the UK and US in April next year in hardcover and e-book and with an audiobook read (I very much hope) by Steven Pacey. I expect it will be available in some other languages not too long afterward but I’ve got no solid information on that yet. Cover art is well underway and I’ll probably have something to show in the next couple of months, but for the time being let’s just say that it will be a development of the parchment theme and feature a map of the entire Circle of the World…
“…Sir and Lady Politic Would-be scenes in which the know-all Brit abroad becomes the know-all City man full of questionable schemes. Steven Pacey and Annette McLaughlin as his vain, greedy, primping wife play the pair with greedy, thoroughly enjoyable, exaggeration.”
Steven Pacey has a small role in the new Channel 4 sci-fi drama Humans, Series 1, Episode 2, Efficiency. He plays a client in a ‘synth’ brothel. The episode was broadcast last week, and is still available on demand for two weeks.
Gemma Chan, William Hurt and Colin Morgan star in this brand new drama series, set in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for a busy family is a Synth – an advanced robotic servant.
Steven Pacey plays Keith, an Aussie, in a two-part episode of Lovejoy, titled Death and Venice, scheduled for re-broadcast next week in the UK on the Drama Channel.
If you haven’t seen this one yet, here’s your chance.

One of Our Own, Part 2
27 June, 2015
11:00 am (1 hour)
An ailing American millionaire becomes obsessed with saving the art treasures of a slowly sinking Venice and his granddaughter hires Lovejoy to help in the quest. However, as soon as the roguish dealer arrives, he becomes embroiled in a murder.
Just released, Steven Pacey reads Robert Wilson’s crime thriller Stealing People.
London, January 2014. In the space of 32 hours, in a well-planned and highly organized operation, six billionaires’ children are taken off the streets of London in a series of slickly well-executed kidnaps.
The gang demands £25 million per hostage for “expenses” – not ransom. And when your child goes missing, you need Charles Boxer: a man with little left to lose, who’ll stop at nothing to save families suffering what he has.
The wealthy parents of the missing children know that Boxer will do more than police can – but that doesn’t mean the law will leave it to him. Intelligence agencies are all interested in the kidnaps because in each case the parents are related to people in power in the various countries involved.
Soon the investigation goes beyond the corridors of power and the boardrooms of big corporations – and to far darker corners. Even more worryingly for Boxer and his ex-wife, Mercy, it threatens to lead back to their own lives, too.
But still nobody knows what this mysterious kidnap gang ultimately want, and if they have a cause, what the hell is it?
An update on Susan Hill’s Printer’s Devil Court. This ghostly crime thriller is now available on audio, read by Steven Pacey.
One murky November evening, after a satisfying meal in their Fleet Street lodgings, a conversation between four medical students takes a curious turn, and Hugh is initiated into a dark secret. In the cellar of their narrow lodgings in Printer’s Devil Court and a little used mortuary in a subterranean annex of the hospital, they have begun to interfere with death itself, in shadowy experiments beyond the realms of medical ethics. They call on Hugh to witness an event both extraordinary and terrifying.
Years later Hugh has occasion to return to his student digs, and the familiar surroundings resurrect peculiar and unpleasant memories of these unnatural events, the true horror of which only slowly becomes apparent.
