Never Again: a new anthology from GFP
« on: March 14, 2010, 01:20:10 PM »
Never Again is an attempt to voice the collective revulsion of writers in the weird fiction genre against political attitudes that stifle compassion and deny our collective human inheritance. The imagination is crucial to an understanding both of human diversity and of common ground. Weird fiction is often stigmatised as a reactionary and ignorant genre Ė we know better. The anthology will be published by Gray Friar Press in September 2010, and edited by Allyson Bird and Joel Lane.

It will be a mixture of original stories and reprints from Ramsey Campbell, Lisa Tuttle and Joe R. Lansdale amongst others. Never Again is a non-profit initiative aimed at promoting awareness of these issues among readers and writers of weird fiction. The editors, authors/artist and publisher will receive no fees for this work. Any profits made from sales will be donated to anti-racist or human rights organizations, e.g. The Sophie Lancaster Foundation.

Thanks Dani!

The book has now moved into profit thanks to the generosity of all who bought the anthology and raffle tickets at Fantasycon. The three organisations that will benefit are The Sophie Lancaster Foundation, Amnesty International and P.E.N. (International organisation to promote literature and human rights, encouraging translation and campaigning against political censorship). What a great start.  :)

THE QUIETUS has decided to help us too. They have put us up as BOOK OF THE DAY. A little about them....

'Record of the Day gave us the Music Publication Of The Year (Student Award) in 2008 and Music Website of the Year award in 2009. Da Capo's respected Best Music Writing guide also picked out three of our features for praise in its 2009 edition, edited by Greil Marcus. Add to this praise from publications and broadcasters including the Guardian, The Sun, Fader, Observer, Independent, BBC, New York Times and Chicago Time Out. ....confident we're doing something right.'

This week Amnesty International are considering selling NEVER AGAIN in their shops worldwide...fingers crossed.

And P.E.N (International organisation to promote literature and human rights, encouraging translation and campaigning against political censorship) will be sending out news of it to all their members at home and internationally.
