Welcome to the Committee!

We’re thrilled to announce that there are two new additions to the BFS committee.

Del Lakin-Smith has joined as our much-needed new web administrator, a position which had been open since the beginning of the year. The sharp-sighted among you will already have spotted some of the smaller changes he’s made to the site – such as making our forum hyperlinks visible, for example! – but his hard work has already put us in much better shape behind-the-scenes too. Del is also the web admin of our friends and rivals at the BSFA, so we’ll obviously have to keep a close eye on him…

David A. Riley is the new editor of Prism, the news magazine of the BFS. David is a writer of horror, science fiction and fantasy (appearing recently in the BFS anthology Houses on the Borderland), and the owner of Riley Books. Guy Adams and Lee Thompson fill in on our September issue, and David will take over from then.

The outgoing editor is of course Lee Harris, who did a marvellous job of putting Prism back on a regular schedule. His time is now taken up by Angry Robot and the Hub. Hopefully it wasn’t too badly damaged by that nasty explosion the other week…

The position of British Fantasy Awards Administrator is still open, and I’d be happy to hand the administration of the short story competition to anyone who could really devote some loving attention to it. We’re also looking for volunteers to join the organising team of FantasyCon 2010.
