Good Homes Wanted

November 28, 2012

Peter Coleborn is getting rid of some magazines and all you have to do is pay the postage. Some of the BFS titles are particularly hard to track down (especially for non-members) but there are also some Interzones in there too.


Dark Horizons 52

February 22, 2012

Peter Coleborn writes about co-editing Dark Horizons 52 with Jan Edwards.

British Fantasy Society Journal 2011

May 20, 2011

Artwork by Tomislav Tikulin

I’ll have a few reviews in this unless I’m very much mistaken. Available mid-to-late June – join the BFS and get your copy. Or not. It’s a free world, at least when it comes to things like this.

It already has a thread on the BFS forum.


British Fantasy Journal Spring 2011

Artwork by Daniele Serra

Scheduled to be published in the first week of April by the BFS in hardback with an electronic edition to follow.


Best New Horror of the Year 3

March 11, 2011

Ellen Datlow has listed the honourable mentions (Part One and Part Two) for 2010. Great to see eight for Dark Horizons and three for Interzone. And congrats to everyone else as well.

Daniele Serra’s artwork will be on the cover of the March issue of the British Fantasy Society Journal which will have fiction from Allen Ashley, Mike Chinn, Stephen Bacon, Sam Stone, Stuart Hughes, Murray Ewing, Darren Guest, Sam Verrall, Terry Grimwood, William H. Wandless, C.E. Hyun and me; poetry from Allen Ashley, Mike Chinn, Stephen Bacon, Sam Stone, Stuart Hughes, Murray Ewing, Darren Guest, Sam Verrall, Terry Grimwood, William H. Wandless, C.E. Hyun and Scott Green; non-fiction from Mike Barrett; additional artwork from David Bezzina and Dean Harkness. There will be reviews a-plenty and it’s edited by Peter Coleborn, Jan Edwards, Ian Hunter, Andrew Hook and David A. Riley.


Dark Horizons

October 1, 2010

The British Fantasy Society is restructuring its magazines and amalgamating them into a new hardback volume.

It looks like putting my stories in five of the last six issues was too much for Dark Horizons. I’m poison, I tell you! Seriously, though, I’m going to miss it. It’s been a delight working with Stephen Theaker and, before him, Peter Coleborn and Jan Edwards.


Dark Horizons 57

September 14, 2010

Dark Horizons 57 has now been published and contains fiction from Malcolm Laughton, Stephen Bacon, Charlotte Bond, Zachary Jernigan and – tra-la – me. Louise Morgan interviews Mark Charan Newton, Jenny Barber interviews Aliette de Boddard, Stephen Theaker interviews Allen Ashley, and Mike Barrett writes about the Ballantine Adult Fantasy Series. Poems a-plenty from Allen Ashley,  J.R. Salling, Graylin,  Sarah Doyle, Ian Hunter, Roy Gray,  Alessio Zanelli and Rick Coonrod. And it’s all wonderfully illustrated by Martin Hanford, John Shanks, Inna Hansen, Alf Klosterman, David Bezzina and Les Edwards.

Of course, to get it you have to join the British Fantasy Society. Or you can try and buy a copy at FantasyCon next weekend. However, if you join the BFS you will also get a copy of the latest Prism, not to mention £10 off the price of a FantasyCon ticket. What to do?


Dark Horizons 57

September 7, 2010

Martin Hanford has provided the artwork for the cover of Dark Horizons 57 and it looks like my story, Colonies, is the cover story. I’m going to claim it anyway, har har!

It’s out this month and you can discover the rest of the contents through the link above.


Colonies

June 13, 2010

My short story, Colonies, will be appearing in Dark Horizons 57 in September. To see it, join the British Fantasy Society.


Alt Fiction

June 10, 2010

Alt Fiction is taking place in Derby on Saturday 12th June. The British Fantasy Society is holding an open meeting at it and TTA Press will have a stall, but there will be much, much more going on. The list of attendees is impressive; if the roof collapses then speculative fiction in the UK will cease to exist.


Doctor Dark

April 21, 2010

Doctor Dark will be published in New Horizons 7, which is the sister magazine to Dark Horizons. Both are available from the British Fantasy Society. You know the drill by now – join here. And even if you’re already a member, I’d still advise you to take out another year’s membership as it’s not due to be published until June 2011.


Dark Horizons 56

April 7, 2010

 Artwork by Howard Watts.

The latest British Fantasy Society mailing contains Dark Horizons 56, which in turn contains my short story The Bordello of Doom. There is also fiction from Val Gryhin, Ian Hunter, Niall Boyce, Philip Meckley, Rafe McGregor, Ralph Robert Moore, Patrick Whitaker and Andrew Knighton; poetry from Ian Hunter, Charles Christian, Jan Edwards, Peter Coleborn, Diana Lewis and Allen Ashley; articles and interviews from, by and about Simon Bestwick, Martin Roberts, Mike Barrett, Brian Stableford, Jenny Barber and Stephen Theaker; and it is illustrated by Inna Hansen and Mark Pexton.

This mailing also comes with the March 2010 issue of Prism (packed, as usual, with news and reviews) and a voting form for the British Fantasy Awards. You’re going to be fed up with voting before the summer’s out, aren’t you? Just don’t mix them up and put Cthulu into Number 10.

Dark Horizons is available as an eBook to BFS members and, from this issue onwards, to members of the Australian Horror Writers Association

Join the BFS here.


Again, Dark Horizons 55

April 7, 2010

You can now buy Dark Horizons 55 even if you’re not a member of the British Fantasy Society. 

But you really should be a member, of course. It’s for your own good.
