30 October 2018. Des épaves du monde

Just back from a long weekend in Orkney filming with a french TV company about the Scapa Flow wrecks for a documentary series on shipwrecks around the world. These guys were hard core - they did The Big Blue with Jean Reno and have worked on Titanic - much respect! 

 
16 October 2018. Shipwrecks of Scapa Flow chart available again

A few years ago I had a unique A1 size full colour chart of Scapa Flow professionally created by the artist who has created all my shipwreck illustrations for me over the years, not just in Scapa Flow but also in Truk, Palau etc. The Scapa shipwreck illustrations were added to the chart in the correct locations with some text about the indivdual wrecks and the Scapa story as a whole. The resulting chart is stunning - and is currently on public display outside the Ferry Terminal in Stromness.

3 October 2018. Deeper into the Darkness

With the publication of Deeper into the Darkness at the end of August this completes the trilogy of my true life diving adventures, which now runs from the early 1980's right through the development of our sport with deep air, Open Circuit Trimix and on to mixed gas Closed Circuit rebreather diving. In the latest book I dive some of the most famous WWI technical wrecks around the UK and in the Pacific at Truk, Palau and Guadalcanal. A new developemnt is that I've added in QR links at the appropriate places on the dives so that you can nip over to my YouTube channel and see the actual dive I've been writing about. 

 
4 August 2018. Into the Abyss - Diving to Adventure in the Liquid World is published

Just received my advance author copies of Into the Abyss - Diving to Adventure in the Liquid World. It has been re-issued as Vol I of my Diving Trilogy. Great fun re-reading it (in a dispassionate 3rd party way!) and re-living all my old adventures. Love the production work by Whittles, the cover looks really great and zippy, and the feel and design of the book is grand.

Vol III, Deeper into the Darkness - the printed books are expected in my publishers warehouse next week. Cant wait to see it a reality.
