Hey, I rate a mention in the introduction because of a story I had in the British Fantasy Society Journal last year. Neat.
Ellen Datlow’s annual anthology represents the best in horror fiction and you should buy it if you’ve got any interest at all in the genre. And I’m not just saying that because I’m biased in any way. Look at the contributors to this volume if you don’t believe me.
The shortlists for the 2012 British Fantasy Society Awards can be found here. Good luck to the jurors; there are some pretty hefty titles in there.
It’s a stunning piece of cinema that still shocks even after almost half a century.
The latest Escape Pod podcast is Marc-Anthony Taylor’s Boxed In which was first published in the British Fantasy Journal Winter 2010/2011. The podcast is free.
You can find out more about the British Fantasy Society here.
This issue has my reviews of Sarah Pinborough’s The Shadow of the Soul and Adam Nevill’s The Ritual.
The rest of the contents can be found here. Well, some of them can. There are also stacks of reviews and features in there.
Remember, kids, that the Full Fathom Forty launch party is happening tomorrow in Brighton.
What’s that? A party, you say? Where and when? In Bar Rogue at the Royal Albion Hotel between 5-6pm as part of FantasyCon. And if you join the British Fantasy Society over the weekend then you’ll get Full Fathom Forty for free.
The following contributors should be there: Ramsay Campbell, Adrian Chamberlain, Simon Clark, Raven Dane, Jan Edwards, Paul Finch, Christopher Fowler, Stephen Gallagher, R.B. Harkness, Ian Hunter, Wilf Kelleher Jones, Jasper Kent, Joel Lane, Mark Lewis, Alison J. Littlewood, Steve Lockley, Peter Mark May, Geoff Nelder, Kim Newman, Martin Owton, Cas Peace, John Llewellyn Probert, Tina Rath, Robert Shearman, Sam Stone, Conrad Williams and editor David J. Howe. Just in case you fancy getting your copy signed.
Meanwhile copies of Full Fathom Forty - along with the Autumn 2011 edition of the British Fantasy Society Journal – should be arriving at the homes of BFS members at this very moment. Maybe it’s already waiting for you. Lying there on the mat like a big paper brick while you surf the net at work.
