Fables From the Fountain announced by Newcon Press

Fables From the Fountain, edited by Ian Whates, is a new collection of all original stories written as homage to Arthur C Clarke’s Tales From the White Hart, featuring many of today’s top genre writers, including Neil Gaiman, Charles Stross, Stephen Baxter, James Lovegrove, Liz Williams, Adam Roberts, Eric Brown, Ian Watson, Peter Crowther, and David Langford.

‘The Fountain, a traditional London pub situated in Holborn, just off Chancery Lane, where Michael, the landlord, serves excellent real ales and dodgy ploughman’s, ably assisted by barmaids Sally and Bogna.

The Fountain, in whose Paradise bar a group of friends ‘ scientists, writers and genre fans ‘ meet regularly on a Tuesday night to swap anecdotes, reveal wondrous events from their past, tell tall tales, talk of classified invention and, maybe, just maybe, save the world”

2011 marks the 25th Anniversary of the Arthur C Clarke Award. This volume is produced in part to raise funds for the Award, which lost its sponsor last year due to the closure of Sir Arthur’s publishing company. The book will be released May 2011, available as an A5 paperback plus a dust-jacketed hardback, limited to just 200 copies, each individually numbered and signed by all the authors. Order here.
