The Extinction Event: The Last Word

Jurassic London

Jonathan Edwards - The Extinction Event

We did so many things wrong.

In the introduction, 600-odd pages ago, Anne mentioned that we launched our first anthology, Stories of the Apocalypse without, well… the book. A dozen authors, another dozen family members, a double-handful of supportive friends and a couple befuddled strangers all gathered at Tate Britain to awkwardly scan some QR codes and listen to vague promises of future delivery. We sold three ebooks that day. Not exactly the glorious march into literary history that we had envisioned.

The Extinction Event: The Beginning of the End

Jurassic London Joey Hi-Fi - The Lowest Heaven
Tate Britain, the redoubtable art museum, opened an exhibit about the 19th century painter John Martin on 21 September, 2011. Tantalizingly titled “John Martin: Apocalypse”, the exhibition was intended to bring this mostly forgotten painter, a flash-in-the-pan during his own lifetime, to the attention of a modern audience by associating his gigantic, Biblical paintings with an emerging cultural fascination with the end of the world.

This Thursday... The Extinction Event!

6a00d8345295c269e201b7c89e8d77970b-300wiThursday evening we're having a welcome party for The Extinction Event and a farewell to Jurassic London. Please join us and many of the book's contributors from 7 pm at the Yorkshire Grey (London, WC1X) to give the book/press the welcome/goodbye it deserves!

Facebook event, if you like to RSVPing.

There are very few copies of The Extinction Event unclaimed. It is very unlikely that there will be any left for sale on the night, so if you are interested in this special edition, 150-copy-only, never to be reprinted or ebooked, rather stately monolith of a book... you should probably order it now.

The table of contents, details and more pretty pictures can all be found here.

World Fantasy Awards: Congratulations!

Shewalksinshadows2-266x400The World Fantasy Award finalists are out. Although all the shortlists are, of course, amazing, we're particularly glad to see two of our contributors - Selena Chambers and Silvia Moreno-Garcia - on the list!

Selena's "The Neurastheniac", from Cassilda's Song, is up for best short story.

Silvia's She Walks in Shadows, co-edited with Paula R. Stiles, is competing for best anthology.

Selena is currently hosting a Mary Shelley read-along for us, while Silvia and Molly Tanzer are (heroically) wrestling with Gor.

Congrats, all!


The Long Way to a Small, American Paperback

1430789787438713122

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is out in the US in paperback today!

My opinion of this book is pretty well-documented by this point (tldr; one of my favourite books of all time, and the sort of joyous science fiction that makes you believe in a better future), but just in case you need further encouragement:

Here's the Guardian story on how this kickstarted debut novel became one of Hodder & Stoughton's summer blockbusters.

And here are some the awards that have recognised it: Baileys, Arthur C. Clarke, The Kitschies, Tiptree, BFS, BSFA.

And here are some reviews:
