Alchemy Press / Re: The Private Life of Elder Things

The Risingshadow website has just posted a rather good – indeed, an excellent – review of The Private Life of Elder Things. The book, they say:

…belongs to the bookshelf of everyone who is fascinated by Lovecraftian weird fiction. It’s one of the best weird fiction collections of the year and deserves to be read by ardent and enthusiastic fans of the genre. Weird fiction doesn’t get more entertaining than this, so please invest a bit of time into reading this marvellous collection. Highly recommended!

Des Lewis frequently reviews books as he reads them -- real-time reviews. He recently started reading and reviewing Something Remains. So far so good -- Des appears to be happy. I hope he still is by page 400. Visit his website (above link) and scroll down through the comments.


Des' reviews of Something Remains are now posted here:

BFS Events / Re: Christmas 2016 Open Night
« on: September 03, 2016, 09:32:39 am »
I emailed her to let her know you were asking, Peter. I didn't spot anything on the online calendar for December, but there is a London social listed there for September 30, venue tba.

Thank you. Alas, 30 Sept is a no-no for me -- I'm appearing at a local Live Age event.

BFS Events / Christmas 2016 Open Night

Has a Xmas Open Night been arranged yet? All being well, Jan and I would like to pop down and say Merry Christmas one and all this year.

Good idea

Unless a sponsor for the proposed awards is found I think this is a no-no, at least for now. Membership is already £35 a year for just four publication -- nearly £9 a time. I rather see the extra publications promised us -- they added real value to the society -- than new awards. I don't want to see my subs increased in order to create these new categories. Or would we replace any of the existing awards, and if so which?

Something Remains — stories based on and inspired by the notes left by Joel Lane (1963-2013) is set for publication this autumn with as launch at FantasyCon by the Sea (23-25 September 2016). From the Introduction by Pauline Dungate:

It soon became clear [after Joel’s death] that there was a wealth of material that had never seen the light of day. As well as Joel’s huge number of genre publications, he wrote hundreds of poems. Not every story was completed or published. It seemed a shame that all this should be lost. So I spoke with Peter Coleborn of Alchemy Press, and a good friend of Joel’s. My idea was somehow to resurrect the best of the ideas and ask some of Joel’s friends to finish them. Peter liked the idea. This book is the result of that collaboration, an anthology brimming with stories inspired by Joel written by a library of talented authors. All profits go to Diabetes UK, a disease Joel suffered.

The table of contents is mouthwatering:
  • Foreword by Peter Coleborn
    Introduction by Pauline E. Dungate
    Joel by Chris Morgan (Verse)
    Not Dispossessed:  A Few Words on Joel Lane’s Early Published Works by David A. Sutton (Essay)

    Charmed Life by Simon Avery
    Antithesis by Alison Littlewood
    Dark Furnaces by Chris Morgan
    The Inner Ear by Marion Pitman (Verse)
    Broken Eye by Gary McMahon

    Threadbare by Jan Edwards
    The Dark above the Fair by Terry Grimwood
    Grey Children by David A. Sutton
    The Twin by James Brogden
    Lost by Pauline Morgan (Verse)
    Through the Floor by Gary Couzens
    Fear of the Music by Stephen Bacon
    Bad Faith by Thana Niveau
    Window Shopping by David Mathew
    Clan Festor by Liam Garriock
    Sweet Sixteen by Adam Millard
    Buried Stars by Simon Macculloch
    And Ashes in Her Hair by Simon Bestwick

    I Need Somewhere to Hide by Steven Savile
    Coming to Life by John Howard
    The Enemy Within by Steve Rasnic Tem
    Afterword: The Whole of Joel by Ramsey Campbell (Essay)

The order of stories is more-or-less random. Obviously some items had to start and end the book and we wanted to avoid grouping the poetry or essays together.
