Interviewed by SF Crowsnest plus two Reviews

Rod MacDonald of SF Crowsnest recently interviewed me on my science fiction writing. Topics covered include two of my most successful stories "Black Water" and "Emergency Rebuild", my latest Harrison Peel book The Eye of Infinity, my involvement with Albedo One, and the upcoming issue of Midnight Echo 6: The Science Fiction Horror Special. You can read the interview here.

Rod also reviewed The Eye of Infinity:

David Conyers, who comes from Australia, is very good with his plot, characterisation and dialogue, three aspects which if properly combined make a worthwhile story. He has certainly achieved that here! ‘The Eye Of Infinity’ can be read in one sitting, not bad because it's a page-turner you won't want to put down.

I also had my cover illustration for Jupiter 33 also reviewed:

Very striking in appearance, stark in its monochrome simplicity, on a tropical paradise beach an alien being menacingly approaches. Completely reflective, on the alien we see a mirror image of a startled figure perhaps living his last moments, hopelessly trying to avoid death. Enhanced by the anonymity of the alien, this is a powerful illustration which is completely different from the cover of the last issue, so displaying Conyers' skill in producing artwork. It will be interesting to see more of his art as well as fiction in the future.

Thanks Rod!
