Hi everyone! My blog has now moved over to my brand new website, which you can find here:
This will be my last post on this blog, so be sure to follow me over!
Thanks for reading!
Welcome to my
My name is Alexander Gordon Smith, and I'm the author of various books including The Inventors series and the brand new Furnace series.
This is my blog, and is where I talk about books, writing and, well, probably other stuff too...

As my Facebook friends will know from my constant whining, I've been horribly ill for the last couple of weeks. What started with the flu fast became an evil attack of tonsillitis, and to top it all off I managed to put my back out too – which meant that I couldn't talk or walk for a few days. I'm still feeling groggier than a drunken, one-legged pirate trying to walk from bow to stern in a storm, but I think I'm slowly on the mend.
There was a package waiting for me outside my door this morning, and when I opened it I found myself face to face with just about the best looking book I've ever seen in my life!! The hardback US version of Furnace 2: Solitary, is absolutely stunning, and I'm so thrilled to finally see it. It's only six weeks now until it's released in the States, but I wanted to give you a sneak preview of what it looked like!
|"The ﬁgure’s body was bathed in ﬁrelight, the rocking chair horribly still. Its head was bald, the skin ripped away in strips and in places Lazarus, horriﬁed and scared beyond anything he’d ever experienced in his life before, could see the milky glow of bone. Its ears were gone, nothing more than stumps that looked like melted candles. The face was a mass of tears and cuts, slicing across it this way and that, the nose severed in half. The mouth had no lips; just great, bloody wounds where they looked like they had been torn oﬀ. Its teeth reﬂected the ﬁre."|
Prepare for bloodshed, screams, spattered brains and the nostril-burning stench of gasoline... The Chainsaw Gang tour has begun! It begins today on the blog of our gang leader Sarwat Chadda, who is interviewing fellow death merchant Sarah Silverwood. Tomorrow I'll be interviewing Lord of the Damned David Gatward, and over the next couple of weeks the rest of the gang will be introducing each other. It's going to be bloody brilliant...
