25 September 2012


I'm rather looking forward to this year's FantasyCon -- only a few days away. It's still an odd feeling, attending the event as a punter rather than an organiser, but all told, I rather not have to worry about hotel bookings and programming any more. So I'll just go and enjoy myself. If the weather is fine I'll take the opportunity to trek along the beach, inhaling good clean seaside air. I'll also take my camera, so be warned!

But most importantly, The Alchemy Press is launching two anthologies this weekend (Saturday, 10.00 a.m. in The Rouge Bar): The Alchemy Press Book of Ancient Wonders and The Alchemy Press Book of Pulp Heroes.

And we'll have news of future projects...

Book fair...

Some of the visitors that, er, visited The Alchemy Press table at last Sunday's Book Fair in Birmingham. There's another photo here. The big tin of chocolates was another attraction -- obviously.

Book Fair

Jan and I had a great day, yesterday, at the Birmingham Independent Press Book Fair. The footfall in the hall was very large, and we had a chance to catch up with some of our Brummie friends. And ... we were able to preview The Alchemy Press's latest publications: Pulp Heroes, edited by Mike Chinn, and Ancient Wonders, edited by Jan Edwards and Jenny Barber.

Out of print!

Two Alchemy Press books are now out of print (although I think some dealers still have copies): The Paladin Mandates by Mike Chinn and Shadows of Light and Dark by Jo Fletcher. Thanks to everyone who bought a copy of either, or both. If you don't have a copy of The Paladin Mandates, a Kindle version is available (which includes an extra story) -- follow the links from the Alchemy Press website.

Advance copies...

Today, advance copies of The Alchemy Press Book of Ancient Wonders and The Alchemy Press Book of Pulp Heroes arrived. Yippee, just in time for Sunday's Book Fair in Birmingham. And of course, more copies will be here in time for the official launch at FantasyCon later this month. Learn more on these books here and here.
