Plus Kidneythieves
"Everything you do, every moment counts
 Don't hesitate, don't ever let the battle down
 Forget about the past, it can't help you now"
- Kidneythieves, "Floating Angel"

Get the Flash Player to hear this rockn' track.

Complete & total asskicking runs on consecutive days this weekend. Six degrees and brilliantly sunny, monstering through the every-photon-is-sacred remix of the ole Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park loop in a muscle shirt and gloves, all powered by the sublime new Kidneythieves album. (With, not quite incidentally enough to refrain from mentioning it, a streaming cold.) And power to burn – which, alas, couldn't be taken for granted this past however long.

And life is good. (Or FYML, as the cool kids say.)

You should buy the new Kidneythieves album, The Invisible Plan. They're another band far, far too good to fail – but who may do so anyway, the universe being the profoundly capricious and arbitrary and cruel place that it is. (See Curve.) Fight caprice! Support sublime artists.

Fuchs is the author of the novels The Manuscript and Pandora's Sisters, both published worldwide by Macmillan in hardback, paperback and all e-book formats (and in translation); the D-Boys series of high-tech, high-concept, spec-ops military adventure novels – D-Boys, Counter-Assault, and Close Quarters Battle (coming in 2016); and is co-author, with Glynn James, of the bestselling Arisen series of special-operations military ZA novels. The second nicest thing anyone has ever said about his work was: "Fuchs seems to operate on the narrative principle of 'when in doubt put in a firefight'." (Kirkus Reviews, more here.)

Fuchs was born in New York; schooled in Virginia (UVa); and later emigrated to the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lived through the dot-com boom. Subsequently he decamped for an extended period of tramping before finally rocking up in London, where he now makes his home. He does a lot of travel blogging, most recently of some very  long  walks around the British Isles. He's been writing and developing for the web since 1994 and shows no particularly hopeful signs of stopping.
