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?

Just been to Facebook -- yes it's there. Please remember, not everyone visits FB.

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.

I second the request to keep bringing announcements and discussion here to the forums, for those of us who are not on FB and similar. It may not be worth putting a huge effort into driving discussion on here, given the relatively low traffic, but popping in every now and again to keep an eye out for any comments shouldn't be too hard? (IIRC you can subscribe to emails reminders from a given thread, can't you?)

Agreed

I know David -- but what is the answer? Facebook is okay but not everyone is on FB, same as Twitter, etc, etc. Perhaps the weekly (!) BFS newsletter needs to promote this feature...

But since this discussion started on FB I had my say there. Perhaps the organisers could post specific questions on the forum...

FantasyCon / Re: Fantasycon 2017 - possible content suggestions...
« on: November 18, 2016, 04:42:37 pm »
The value of the small or independent press for the publication of short stories, in particular single author collections, novels etc., may be of interest. Could be a regular issue, but it's one that is of some importance, especially for fledgling writers.

True, it is

Pop over to the above website to read the full review of Something Remains. Some wonderful words.

"Something Remains is one of the best and most impressive anthologies of the year (it's a worthy tribute to Joel Lane and his legacy). If you consider yourself to be a fan of literary speculative fiction, you owe it to yourself to read this anthology, because you'll love it."
