The magical thinking of Shaun Tan's Rules of Summer Rules of Summer appeared in the autumn of 2013, but the story of my relationship with this remarkable book doesn’t start until the following year. Manchester’s Central Library had just re-opened after a £50 million refurbishment and one sunny morning that spring I rode the tram to St Peter’s Square with my wife and three-year-old daughter. There’s room enough to borrow six books on a kid’s library card and I was scheming; the little girl was getting five, I figured, and I was having one. I’d always loved Edward Gorey and when I saw Rules of Summer by Shaun Tan that morning, (the lack of article is important by the way – these are only one of many possible lists of weird childhood regulations) I was immediately mesmerised. I bought my own copy, and as I busied myself writing my second novel, Lifers, through that spring and summer, Tan’s book became a sort of bible for everything I was trying to achieve.

In conversation: Neil Gaiman talks to Shaun Tan I met Shaun Tan for the first time in 1996, at a science-fiction convention in Perth, and only half-remember meeting him. He's quiet, shy, generally unassuming. I got to know him slightly better with each subsequent trip to Australia, and he got used to me introducing myself to him and him telling me that actually we'd already met. He's an artist and a writer and now a director, possessor of a peculiar and singular vision.
Heroes of Olympus Rick Riordan Cover image not final Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen - all of them, and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood - the blood of Olympus - in order to wake. The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood.
Shaun Tan’s Wild Imagination Photo A vine has invaded Shaun Tan’s house in suburban Melbourne, Australia, through a previously unnoticed gap where the window of his studio doesn’t quite meet the sill. Advancing along a curtain rod and sinking offshoots into the dark places behind his desk, the vine has overgrown Tan’s workspace. He has to trim it back, because it keeps trying to grab things — an electric pencil sharpener, unopened letters in his inbox. Recently he returned from a trip to find that it was exploring the bottom drawer of his filing cabinet, where he keeps new projects.
Action Fiction Action is one of the fiction-writing modes authors use to present fiction. Action includes movement, not meaning like standing up, but big movements. The term is also used to describe an exciting event or circumstance. The action genre is a class of creative works characterized by more emphasis on exciting action sequences than on character development or story-telling. The genre encompasses action fiction, action films, action games and analogous media in other formats such as manga and anime. There are many sub-genres, including martial arts action, extreme sports action, car chases and vehicles, suspense action, and action comedy, with each focusing in more detail on its own type and flavour of action.
