Press release just received:

"Multiple award-winning editor Stephen Jones has announced that he is now reading for the fifteenth volume of THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST NEW HORROR, which will be published as a trade paperback in the UK by Robinson and in the USA by Carroll & Graf in 2004.

This is a REPRINT anthology. He is looking for horror and dark fantasy
stories and novellas, either supernatural or psychological, which were
FIRST PUBLISHED between December 2002 and December 2003. Electronic publication is acceptable, but all submissions should be either in
manuscript, galley or photocopy format. No e-mail submissions.

Space in the book is obviously limited and the competition is tough, so
only the most exemplary fiction will be chosen. Do not send multiple
submissions, only what you consider your best work. Even if you think it
may have already been seen by the editor, if in doubt send another copy
anyway.

Include a brief covering letter with your name and address, giving your
bio/bibliographical information and details of publication. Also include an
e-mail address if you want to be notified when the book is full. All
material received will be considered disposable. The deadline for receiving
stories is February 1st, 2004. You will be contacted after that date if
your story has been accepted. Payment is on publication.

THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST NEW HORROR also includes an extensive annual overview of the previous year in horror. To be aware of material published (especially from the small press), the editor needs to have seen it. This includes novels, collections, anthologies, poetry, art books, reference works, magazines and chapbooks covering fiction, non-fiction and films. All appropriate titles received will get a mention in the "Introduction", and publishers may also be listed in the book's "Useful Addresses" section.

All material for inclusion should be sent to: "The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror #15", c/o 130 Park View, Wembley, Middx HA9 6JU, England. The editor and publishers are not responsible for any material that goes missing.

THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF BEST NEW HORROR VOLUME FOURTEEN is available in bookstores next month. It includes fiction by Ramsey Campbell, Basil Copper, Stephen Gallagher, Glen Hirshberg, Brian Hodge, Graham Joyce, Caitlin Kiernan, Kelly Link, Paul McAuley, China Mieville, Kim Newman, Nicholas Royle, Jay Russell, David J. Schow, Jeff VanderMeer and many others."

Press Release? Immediate

Well known Midlands author Storm Constantine has lashed out at the mainstream publishing industry by setting up her own publishing company.  

Immanion Press, based in Stafford, will be publishing horror, fantasy and science fiction novels by new and established authors, who are being squeezed out of the business by ?A list? authors with the backing of big promotional budgets, including TV and radio airtime and tie-ins with movies.

?Nowadays, book publishing is about shifting as many ?units? as quickly as possible.  It?s more about making huge profit and that squeezes out new talent,? said Storm.

?Big publishing houses tend to treat books more like cans of beans than a source of pleasure and entertainment.   The average novel has the shelf life of a magazine in shops,? she added.  

?Unless you are a big name like J K Rowling or Jeffrey Archer, either exceptionally lucky or really well known to begin with, unpublished novelists stand less and less chance of seeing their work in print.?

Immanion Press also aims to republish the earlier novels of respected and established authors, which have long been out of print.

Storm, author of more than twenty published novels and works of non-fiction, said: ?There is a huge demand from fans for older, classic works, which the big publishers won?t touch.  

?I started Immanion Press initially after thousands of requests from my own fans who couldn?t get hold of books in my back catalogue. Now I want to do the same for other authors, as well as showcase exciting new talent,? said Storm.

 The official launch party of Immanion Press, with its first publication, the re-release of Storm?s internationally best-selling novel, ?The Enchantments of Flesh and Spirit?, was held at Metro Fox in Victoria Street, Wolverhampton on Saturday, 2nd August.
