New Story, Anthology and EuroCon 2013

A new story of mine will appear in a European anthology to be launched as an ebook at EuroCon 2013 on April  12th. The Con takes places in Kiev. The book will feature such authors as Aliette de Bodard and Ian R MacCleod and many other great international names.

The anthology is a joint publishing venture between ISF (International Speculative Fiction) and Europa SF.

Great Developments Begin The New Year

I am happy to say that Aliette de Bodard’s novella, ‘On A Red Station, Drifting,‘ has received a great review in LOCUS by Rich Horton, who calls the story ‘an original and ambitous tale’. Moreover, the novella has been placed on the LOCUS Recommended Reading List for 2012, and has also received support from Gardner Dozois.

I am happy for Aliette, who is a wonderful writer.  As the publisher of the novella, I feel very proud to have put this wonderful story to print and see it succeed so well. (In case you didn’t know, I am publisher/editor for Immersion Press).

Well done, Aliette!

Additionally, Chris Bulter’s novella  ‘Flight of the Ravens‘ has been shortlisted for the BSFA Award for Best Short, 2012. I am also proud to have published this fantastic piece of fantasy fiction.

Good luck to Chris at the awards ceremony this Easter!

FantasyCon, Steampunk, and Kung Fu

Sorry for any delays in posting. After a death in the family, I am refocusing and getting back on track.

Getting ready for Fantasycon. The steampunk book is ready, with one more change in the line-up–added in Aliette de Bodard and “Kung Fu Jesus Man” Lavie Tidhar for what is a really cool anthology. See the awesome cover by Charles Harbour at the Immersion press website.

I shall have a table in the dealer’s room, so come by and say hi and buy a book or two, or three, or four…. (All books will be reduced in price.)

I will have on hand for purchase Lavie Tidhar’s excellent Jesus and the Eightfold Path for sale. It is a beautiful limited-edition hardcover novella. Check out the great cover art from Melissa Gay at the website.

You can also pick up Fun With Rainbows by Gareth Owens, The Immersion Book of SF, edited by me, and The Immersion Book of Steampunk, edited by Gareth D Jones and myself.

Immersion Book of SF Review in Interzone

It’s a great feeling to get a good review in Britain’s longest-running and most influential science fiction magazine, Interzone.  In issue 232, Duncan Lunan gives The Immersion Book of SF a thumbs up–and Iam glad.  As editor for the book, it feels great to see my choices for stories supported by such a review.

Get yourself a copy of the magazine, or go to TTA PRESS here and purchase a subscription. If you like Sci-Fi, it’s almost criminal not to own a subscription to Interzone.

Immersion Book of SF Celebration

Had a great time at the pub celebrating The Immersion Book of SF.  Great friends and authors showed up for some drinks, food, and the conversation was electric. I tell you I was in awe of the High-Priestess of SF&F, Tanith Lee. She is such a sweetheart, a wonderfully warm and friendly person. Writer Al Robertson was on hand, and he is such an intelligent man he almost blew my mind. Chris Butler, Gareth Owens were chewing the fat with Jessica Payne, Stephen Gaskell, and artist Charles Harbour. The wonderful  Liz and Deirdre Counihan were  there,  adding a touch of grace to the celebrations. All in all, a wonderful evening.

On another note, The Immersion Book of SF is selling well, so get your copy.

World SF Site and New Story, Plus Poem

I am very happy to announce that a story of mine, “A Change of Season,”  will appear on Lavie Tidhar’s fantastic WORLD SF site in the coming months.

If you aren’t aware, Lavie started the site to help bring attention to the speculative fiction works from writers around the world, such as Aliette de Bodard, Anil Menon, Zoran Zivkovic and others. It’s a great place for literary  news– and now new fiction– from around the speculative globe.

Additionally, I have had a poem accepted to Scifaikuest magazine. It will appear in the February 2011 print issue (there is a print and online issue, but each one has different content. I’m happy I’m in the printed edition). Scifaikuest is an  excellent magazine of speculative poetry. Check it out.

So that’s two acceptances within 48 hours. Not a bad week, I’d say.
