The Unknowable in Pursuit of the Unbloggable
Welcome to the website of James Treadwell, author of the Advent trilogy (currently a trilogy in two parts).
For those who’ve read Advent, you may be interested to know that Anarchy, the second book in the sequence, is now available, in US and UK/Commonwealth editions.
You’ll find more information about the books and their author in these pages, as well as links to reviews and interviews. If you have any questions or comments, you’re very welcome to leave them on the “Conversation” page.
What you won’t find is anything resembling a blog. This site’s been live for a year and a half now, so I think I can say with some certainty that I’m unlikely to use it for posting regular updates, anecdotes, rants, protestations, meditations, or squibs of any sort. (The occasional very irregular random thought appears in the “Rumination” section.)
It’s not that I in any sense disapprove of blogging. Like any other form of writing, it’s a pleasure to read when done well (and plenty do). I think in my case it’s a problem to do with audience. Who would one be blogging for? Who are these unknown readers, and why should I expect them to lose any of their time on random reflections of mine? Well, they’re you, of course; but the things I want to to say to you I say in my books. Writers are people who feel they have something that needs to come out in words. In my case, it’s the stories I want to tell you. And that’s it.
But thank you — a heartfelt thank you — for reading anyway.
