The Adventures of Roderick Langham
« Reply #136 on: April 08, 2017, 08:12:41 am »
I think our third publication in as many months is one that will appeal to a lot of BFS members: The Adventures of Roderick Langham by Rafe McGregor, a collection of short stories about a chap who inhabits the world of Sherlock Holmes, investigates cases with John Watson and Sebastian Moran, and is able to perceive the reality concealed by the illusion of everyday appearances.

These nine stories follow Langham from his first encounter with the inexplicable in the Himalayan hills to his investigation of the wreck of the Demeter and his growing realisation that the dales, moors, and wolds which surround his Yorkshire refuge are home to an evil far older than the honeycomb of medieval monasteries and Roman ruins suggests.

It's free to download from our website, and as cheap as we can possibly make it in paperback (so £4.47 at the moment). Download links and more info here.

Issue sixty of our zine Theaker's Quarterly Fiction is now available for free download, including stories by Rafe McGregor, Nicki Robson, Douglas Thompson, Jule Owen and Andrew Peters, plus forty or so pages of reviews from the usual team. There's also a paperback edition, priced as cheaply as possible. More details here: http://theakersquarterly.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/theakers60.html

Wish this meant we were celebrating our fifteenth anniversary, but we cheated with six issues a year for a little while. We'll have been going for thirteen years this autumn. Pretty much every bit of work on this was done at the end of the day when I was totally worn out, so if you do spot any errors, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Howard Watts supplies the wraparound cover, completing a run of thirty consecutive covers for us!

Theaker’s Quarterly Fiction #61 is now available as a free download in epub, mobi and pdf formats, or as a 116pp paperback for about three pounds. It contains stories from Allen Ashley, Douglas Thompson, S.J. Hosking, A. Katherine Black, Tim Major and Libby Heily, plus non-fiction from Jessy Randall, Douglas J. Ogurek, Rafe McGregor and Jacob Edwards.

Details and download links here.

Four months late but worth the wait! We're hoping to catch up with TQF62 in February, and then be back on schedule from TQF63 in March.

Theaker's Quarterly Fiction #62 is kind of out now:

http://theakersquarterly.blogspot.com/2018/06/theakers62.html

That is, the pdf is available, but I'm so busy with regular work that the ebook and print versions are on the backburner. In a return to our roots, this issue is entirely by me, though the wraparound cover by Howard Watts.

We've also announced the winners of the prestigious TQF awards:

http://theakersquarterly.blogspot.com/2018/06/tqfawards2018-winners.html

BFS stalwart Allen Ashley took home the prize for best TQF story, for "Bound for Glory", Eastercon 2017 won best event, and Pirate Utopia by Bruce Sterling won best book.

Theaker's Quarterly Fiction #63 is now available, as a free download or a very cheap paperback. This is a very special issue, an anthology guest edited by Douglas J. Ogurek: Unsplatterpunk! 2.

It includes the stories “First Kiss” by Drew Tapley, “The Villainy of Solitude” by Triffooper Saxelbax, “Convention Hitler!” by Hugh Alsin, “The Music of Zeddy Graves” by me, “Gunkectomy” by Douglas J. Ogurek, “The Tapestry of Roubaix” by Howard Phillips and “The Bones of Old England” by M.S. Swift, plus the usual selection of reviews and a wraparound cover by Howard Watts.

After a bit of a delay, TQF62 is now available in ebook and print too.
