I’ve got a novel coming out soon. It’s a piece of urban fantasy about small-time crooks, and about a socially awkward musician learning how to do magic, and it’s about how cool it is to be up at night. I borrow a lot of tone from noir, from punk rock, and from how it feels to be twenty-something and directionless.

I’ve been running some anti-ads for it, because if there’s something worth doing it’s worth doing sideways.

Keep a weather eye for City Song by Oliver Blakemore (that’s me) to hit a virtual outlet near you at the end of this month. …

The best part of being a mime is never having to say I’m sorry.
