Calls for Submissions / The Alchemy Press Book Of Horrors
« on: October 09, 2017, 04:11:20 PM »


2018 sees the re-launch of the Alchemy Press Book Of… anthologies with a brand new title: HORRORS, edited by Peter Coleborn and Jan Edwards. We are looking for horror stories … but tales that can be described as “weird”, “strange”, “amazing” and “peculiar”: stories that would have found a home in Weird Tales, Unknown Worlds, Fantastic and Fantasy Tales among other illustrious publications.

Full details here: https://alchemypress.wordpress.com/submissions/alchemy-press-book-of-horrors/

Alchemy Press / Re: Astrologica: Stories of the Zodiac
« on: March 04, 2017, 01:10:45 PM »


Warning: Astrologica - Stories of the Zodiac edited by Allen Ashley is heading towards OOP status.

What’s your star sign? Is our fate pre-determined by the constellations and the position of the planets? Can astrology really present an alternative vision to the apparent certainties of science, politics, religion and celebrity culture? Or should its claims of determinism, fate, fortune and personality profiling perhaps be taken with a large pinch of salt?

The Alchemy Press Book of Ancient Wonders will be OOP in a few weeks. Now would be a good time to buy a copy if you don't have one   ;D

The BFS is making it difficult to vote for this year's BFS Awards. The above is the link to vote.

I think the vote closes soon but I can't find confirmation of the exact date.

General Discussion / Re: Board for calls for submissions?
« on: February 15, 2017, 02:35:21 PM »
A "Call for Submissions" thread is an excellent idea. I just hope authors and small press publishers do not use the thread to promote already published work. There is another thread for that  :D

Popping in briefly to say:

Peter, I've checked your subscription, you should be receiving the Bulletin, so check your spam/junk folders, and make sure you have the secretary@ email address saved as being friendly, then you should get them ok.

Neil, I did mention the BFAs in my last Bulletin. You're probably one of those people who just skips my little ramble at the beginning. I know. It's fine. Not everyone appreciates my work. It's fine. *sniff* *wails*

Thanks  ;)

Thanks, Neil

Maybe I hadn't signed up for the Bulletin -- but I do receive emails whenever a new review is posted plus the occasional eNewsletter -- or maybe it got  deleted lost among all the spam I always annoying receive. Is there a sign-up link on the BFS website to ensure I receive the Bulletin? I can't see it. Perhaps I should go to SpecSavers?

From the Contact the BFS page on the website:
Katherine Fowler – British Fantasy Awards Administrator (bfsawards@britishfantasysociety.org)
I don't know when the voting will open I'm afraid, that is definitely a question for Katherine.

Thanks, Neil. Another member contacted me and said that something had been mentioned in the bulletin - but, of course, as I'm not a member I don't get a bulletin. I now find out from Facebook (not the BFS page) that voting has already opened and an email gone out. But it looks like that only went out to members, not FCon members, as I never received it. So I'll get in touch with Katherine and try to find out what's going on. Bad communication again on the part of the BFS I think.


I've not seen anything about this yet, either. I'm not sure what the "bulletin" is. I guess it means the eNewsletter-- the last one I received was about Fantasycon bookings.

FantasyCon / Re: Memberships and Hotel bookings for Fcon 2017 are now live!

Am I reading this right -- price includes accommodation?

Sadly no, there is not enough room in the hotel to house everyone we hope is coming!  Where did you read that?  It might be a copy and paste error from our other event that has a different pricing structure.  Apologies for any confusion.

Please see my next post because your answer is a bit confusing.

Please clarify -- this info is taken from the website listed in the first post:

FCon membership for Fri/Sat is £182.50 -- this is membership AND hotel, yes?

Thursday B&B is £101.50 and Sunday B&B is £91.50

FCon membership is £56.50 -- excludes the hotel, yes? But why the 50p? Why not £56 or £57?

Early FCon membership is £46.00 -- when does this offer end?

What membership rate are we paying if we book the Fri/Sat package now? £56.50 or £46.00?

Do any of these prices include the £10 BFS member discount?

Are you going to have an unwaged membership (you have a student membership)?

What about Sat only accommodation? Some people may only be able to stay for the Saturday night (I shall book two nights).

Please clarify and thanks in advance.
