British Fantasy – The Reach of Children

June 7th, 2009 • Posted in Book News |

Utterly thrilled to see that THE REACH OF CHILDREN has been shortlisted for a British Fantasy Award.  For those who don’t know, this was a novella that Humdrumming published (sort of) just before they went bust … resulting in only about 125 copies getting out there.  It’s also an intensely personal piece of writing, and one of the best things I’ve written in years.

You really should nip along and vote: British Fantasy Awards .  You can vote if you’re a member of the BFS, or if you attended Fantasycon last year, or if you’re registered to attend this year.  And if you’re not registered yet, what the bloody hell are you waiting for?  Fantasycon is a highlight of the year for me, meeting up with loads of old friends and drinking and chatting til the sun rises …. then drinking and chatting some more.  Let’s hope the hotel gets their stocks in this year.

In other news … coming to the end of the third Hidden Cities book with Christopher Golden, currently titled TELL MY SORROWS TO THE STONES (thought that title might change).  Exciting hardback news on this book soon.

Also, I’ve sold another big collection of short fiction and novellas … look for an announcement soon!

    Excellent news on the pending re-publication of Reach, Tim – the more people get to read the book, the better, and I’m sure your dear mother will be smiling down at you when you win the Award this September.
