This week, The Digital Fix does the top ten final episodes and I write up a couple of them. Crucially, one of mine is number one.
And if you like it (or any of the others), you can still buy the anthology containing my 12,000 word piece “Blood Will Stream”, of which more details here. Or you can read the entire Friday story archives for free as ever.
And, included for completeness’s sake, there is a “Meet The Team feature up on The Digital Fix too, which includes a picture of my real human face. Exciting, I know.
A medium-length story I wrote called Blood Will Stream is in a new anthology called Standing In The Kitchen At Parties, from indie publisher Deserted By Dignity. (Yes, both those names do work pretty well for me.)
The story itself is about one woman’s quest to kill her boyfriend and stream it live over the internet. And I work part-time in IT and use a lot of social networking sites, so it’s obviously going to be 100% technically accurate.
Anyway, this does mean you’ll need to spend some currency to get hold of it, but the story is 12,000 words long, so you’re getting a decent chunk of me for your money. (That’s twelve times as long as the stories I post here on Fridays.) The publisher has posted a brief preview of my part on their website.
You can buy the book from Amazon UK, Amazon US, probably other branches of Amazon too. It isn’t up for Kindle yet, but I think that’s coming. For those of you who are not made of money and don’t care about having a real book, you can also get it in PDF format from Lulu for a much cheaper price.
(Although, for what it’s worth, I have the proper book and it’s a nice package. I’m rather pleased.)
Anyway, this is a big step for me, so I’m excited. If anyone buys the book and wants to let me know what you thought, there is a comment section below, or I also have an email address.
Latest Spooks review up on Dork Adore, as our heroes face the up-to-the-moment issue of... Spookileaks!
My weekly small segment in the Digital Fix group X Factor review. At least something happened this week.
Because all the cool blogs seem to have them, and because Facebook seems to be taking more steps towards world domination and I want to make sure I’m “in there”, I have created a Facebook page for Nick Bryan Dot Com.
If you want to get updates without having to visit this blog or mess around setting up an RSS feed, just ‘like’ that and away we go.
This has been an administration update. I do have some interesting news coming soon, I promise.
The Digital Fix counts down the top ten first episodes ever. I rave on about two Aaron Sorkin shows.
Advance non-spoiling review of Sunday's Spooks episode 2 now up on The Digital Fix. I do also write about things other than Spooks.
I contributed a few slightly annoyed paragraphs to this week's mass X Factor review on The Digital Fix.

Advance review of the first new Spooks episode for The Digital Fix. Actually written in advance! Wow. (Don't worry, I've tried to avoid spoilers.)
New Doctor Who review on Dork Adore, in which I intuit the video game preferences of the creative staff.
Yes, the creativity was on fire this week. It’s named after this Pogues song, which I was listening to extensively when I wrote it but has little to do with the actual plot. As ever, more stories are available.

Episode 8 of Torchwood: Miracle Day reviewed for Dork Adore. With mere weeks to go, it must be time to pick up the pace?
In this week’s news broadcast, I take on the sudden omnipresence of football in my news consumption, seemingly (to me at least) much more so than in the last few years, and then that whole Nadine Dorries abortion counselling mess, just in case football was too dull and inoffensive.
