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.

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.

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.

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.

There’s also fiction from Andrew Knighton, Jan Edwards, Brendan Connell, Douglas Thompson, Mathew F. Riley, and Ross Gresham, poetry from Ian Hunter, Kristine Ong Muslim, and Skadi meic Beorh, an interview with Robert Holdstock, and a selection of articles about James Blaylock, David Gemell, Clive Barker, J.R.R Tolkien and others.

Join the BFS here. Or at least have a look at the happy smile on the face of the President. You wouldn’t want to make him cry, would you?
