Fantasycon 2018, 19th-21st October

I love Fantasycon. It’s one of the highlights of my year. I feel like a child before Christmans in the weeks running up to it. It’s where I get to see marvellous people and talk about books.

This year it’s at The Queen Hotel, Chester. More info here. Guests of Honour are Adrian Tchaikovsky, Claire North and Farah Mendlesohn.

I’ll be at the Titan launch on Sat 20th at 4pm, which includes New Fears 2, a horror collection by Mark Morris that I am fortunate enough to be included in with a story called “Maw”.

I’m also doing a reading on Sat 20th at 9pm  with the lovely Tim Major and Gary Budden.

Come and say hello!

Black Static’s 50th Issue

Andy Cox has celebrated the 50th issue of Black Static with a fantastic line up of fiction by Georgina Bruce, V.H. Leslie, Ray Cluley, Gary Budden, Tyler Keevil and Tim Casson, alongside columns by Stephen Volk and Lynda E. Rucker, DVD reviews by Tony Lee and reviews by Peter Tennant – which includes a feature on Simon Bestwick.

Black Static Issue 50 with cover art by Vince Haig

I look forward to reading work by all of these writers but am particularly pleased to see much made of Georgina Bruce’s story “White Rabbit”. I’ve long envied her work for her style and vision which is matched by her technical skill.

I’m also very pleased to see the magazine being featured in the mainstream press. Damien Walter’s article The ominous ordinary: horror writers finding scares in the everyday praises Andy Cox’s vision, Georgina Bruce for  “undermining our faith in the ordinary” and Simon Bestwick’s work as “the most engaged with ordinary British life of any horror writer working today”.
