Covers, Daggers, Launches

TBOBF2018Nice news all around. 

The cover for The Best of British Fantasy has been revealed - illustrated by the amazing Matty Long.

You can now pre-order the book (including the snazzy limited hardcover) directly from the publisher.

The book will be launched on June 1 at London's Star of King's pub, starting at 1pm. Join us - and a vast array of authors - for the occasion. 

A bit of Outcast Hours news as well. Lavie Tidhar's near-future noir, "Bag Man", is in the running for a CWA Dagger. A great honour. More about this strange, genre-hopping book here.


The Outcast Hours is Out

Slightly belated, but, hey! After a year of construction and months of fretting and weeks of self-promotion - The Outcast Hours is, indeed, out. 

The details of this scrumptious new anthology are here, including links to some of the particularly flattering reviews. Mahvesh and I kicked off the launch with three events - two in London, one 'virtual' on reddit - and are now in the awkward 'post-launch, just stare' stage. If you don't have a copy, it is never too late. If you do have a copy, well - thanks.

Incidentally, if you are a school/prison/library/community centre/other institution that would like a copy for your shelves, please let me know, and I will happily send you a copy for free. While they last.
