Stop Those Monsters

Here it is – the first sighting of STOP THOSE MONSTERS! Out on June 4th. I hope you’ll like it!

Meanwhile, I’ve had fun in Oxford and Cambridge recently. Both had literary festivals…

In Oxford I did an event called Young Bond vs Young Sherlock with Andrew Lane (on the right in the pic below). With lovely author Tony Bradman ably hosting, we worked out the contest was probably a draw!

I also met Safira (is that how I spell it?) who is a big reader, and her mum who is a great supporter of children’s books.

I met them again when I went to Cambridge to host an event for the brilliant Anthony Horowitz.

The event was to 450 people in the Cambridge Union Debating Chamber. It was a great celebration of Alex Rider and James Bond, and Anthony kept us all well-entertained!

  • I wonder what it would have been like if Young Bond and Young Sherlock went to school together? Young Blofeld and Moriarty could have been there, too. I wouldn’t like to try breaking up a fight between them…

  • That new book of yours looks brilliant, Steve, can’t wait for it to come out! I wonder if it is by Magic ink co. Per chance?
