Announcements and Suggestions / Use of BFS logo.

Hello, all.

The first batch of releases from Dark Continents are going to be released at WHC Texas this year. We've obtained permission to use the official WHC logo on the copyright page and covers of our books to make them special limited editions - the stipulation being that we don't sell those books outside the venue.

The reason I've mentioned this is because we'll be launching two new books at FCon this year: Quiet Houses, by Simon Kurt Unsworth and Campfire Chillers by Dave Jeffery. We'd like to do the same thing with these as we're doing at WHC - release a limited version for sale only at FCon - with the rather lovely BFS logo on the cover.

So - could anyone tell me if it would be acceptable to do this, or point me in the way of the person to ask?

Many thanks,

Adrian Chamberlin

I'm reading Night of the Crabs, by Guy N. Smith. It reads like a children's book - like Terrance Dicks with very bad sex - but still managed to give me nightmares. Good fun.

It'll be my 2400th book read, more or less. I thought about finishing War and Peace to mark the occasion, but had a lot more left to read of it than I thought.

One of my first ever horror novels was Night of the Crabs. Huge fun - but nothing tops Crabs on the Rampage. Pure pulp paradise!

Lebanon an Israeli film just released on DVD - four guys stuck in a tank during the Lebanese war - claustrophobic (except for the opening and closing credits every scene is shot from within the tank or shots through the periscope and hatch), horrific, reminded me of Alien and Millgram's experiment - the psychological pressure is huge -

- one of the best movies I've seen -

Reminds me of The Beast, a 1988 flick about Russian tank crew trapped in an Afghan valley. That was on ITV4 last week, really enjoyable film.

You may have heard about us by now - here's the website:

Although we're launching at WHC 2011, we thought we'd sneak out a little short story collection. A sampler of what you can expect from us in the future.

A collection of tales that make the rainbow a little bit darker...

Includes The Elms, Morecambe by SIMON KURT UNSWORTH, from his forthcoming collection Quiet Houses.

EBook available here:

Print versions are available from our website. Simon and myself will be having some shipped over from the States, so if you'd like a signed copy just get in touch with either one of us.

Enjoy!  ;D

Sounds a great night!

Will their be a north/south divide in the future, or will the open nights be held in a more central area? And did anyone manage to get to BOTH nights?

Christ, my head hurts.

To those of you who made it - well done! And it was lovely meeting y'all. Pleased that there's been some interest in M Is For Monster.

Now, can someone kindly remind me of what happened at the end? Did Truckles boot us all out at 10 pm or did we hang on for a bit longer?

And why did Stephen Jones lose his rag with me?

Mind you, if I write 'RECURVE' on my forehead, I think Lou M will know who I am.

You still slumming it with those stickbows, Lou?

I've never done NaNoWriMo, although I've written two novels. Short story markets keep cropping up at this time.

How do you find it, is it good?

Hello there, and welcome aboard!

Like you, I was active on this board for a while and then I drifted away. Nice to be back, and nice to see another member.

Morrigan Books and Beyond Fiction - both are fine organisations. Sharon Ring, Mark Deniz, Simon Marshall-Jones, do they post on this board?

Indeed. I loved FCon - in many ways I enjoyed it more than WHC 2010, it was more laid back and friendly. Then again, WHC was my first ever convo so it was no wonder I was a bit stage-struck by Brighton.

And what's THIS! FCon 2011 in Brighton, the same venue as WHC...hmm. No complaints from me (apart from the ridiculous car parking prices) but what was the reasoning behind shifting FCon from Nottingham to Brighton?
