British Fantasy Awards 2013

November 3, 2013

Interzone has won the British Fantasy Award 2013 for Best Magazine/Periodical.

I can also now announce that Helen Marshall has won the British Fantasy Award 2013 for Best Newcomer (the Sydney J. Bounds Award). Helen is a ferociously-talented writer who will have a massive impact on the field in coming years. And, yes, I am very happy with the decision that the jury reached. It was a strong field too, and several others on the shortlist would have made worthy winners.

Good Homes Wanted

FantasyCon 2012

September 30, 2012

Nearly forgot to mention that the national British convention for fantastical and weird fiction is taking place this weekend in Brighton. It’s still not too late to catch some of it. Drink beer, raid the dealers’ room, etc.

The Best New Horror of the Year Volume Four

August 3, 2012

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.

Adrift on the Sea of Rains has been reviewed by Glen Mehn for the British Fantasy Society and Christian Anderson for Global Junkie.

British Fantasy Awards 2012 Longlists

May 16, 2012

You’ve seen the shortlists. Now read the longlists. It’s a bit like time travel with the possibility of alternate universes thrown into the mix. A little bit.

Al Robertson’s Of Dawn was in Interzone 235 and Mercurio D. Rivera’s Tethered was in Interzone 236.

Witchfinder General

My review of Ian Cooper’s new book about Michael Reeves’ film.

It’s a stunning piece of cinema that still shocks even after almost half a century.
