More on Chris and his social work background.
It seems he is something of a star in that biz.
There is also a link to a review of a book of his
One that won't be covered in IZ.

And, standard practice for academics,

Now the Guardian have The Turing Test down on their summer reading list:

Chris is a social worker and novelist and Community Care Magazine have just run an article on that very subject; social workers who write novels and Chris is one the four profiled.

Community Care Magazine is the 'trade' magazine for social workers and related professions/professionals.

This year's Edgehill prize shortlist has been announced. No IZ authors on that list, as far as I know but Rob Shearman has written for Dr Who and Chris Beckett, as last year's winner, is one of this years judges.
