My friend Jay Tomkinson has just launched his freelance writing business J-Tech Copy Services.
Here’s his post on the latest developments in technology. All of the new developments in robotics and AI are exciting-as long as we don’t have the machines turning on us! As George Orwell’s ‘1984’ predicted CCTV & Big Brother (gods save us! ), Stephen King’s ‘Trucks’ (on which ‘Maximum Overdrive’ movie is based) and Isaac Asimov’s ‘I, Robot’ might end up predictors of the next technological advances. Fascinating stuff!

However, I did skim read parts which I felt over explained domestic/ bedroom arrangements. The sex-politics are getting overcomplicated. I understand that Hamilton wants to give all of her readers a fix of who they fancy, but I’m having trouble keeping up with the who’s-who of Anita’s lovers. Perhaps I’m being selfish, as I’m all-over Jean Claude.
I enjoyed the crime investigation and supernatural elements… It will be exciting to see where Hamilton goes from here..
It will be exciting to see where Hamilton goes from here, exploring Anita’s new powers. The twist on the the zombie trope was fun and scary. Though I was happy how the relationships panned out.

I ‘m a huge fan of this black/ death metal band which I reviewed a while back.
After performing for Facebarmageddon in December, they have entered Metal 2 the Masses.
Please vote for Seven Main Sins here : http://m2tm.wychwood-competitions.com/bands/ It would be awesome for them to get this gig.
I only wish I could afford to go this year!
