Pandemonium: Stories of the Smoke - Contributors & Pre-Orders
The 2011 Kitschies, presented by The Kraken Rum

Where's Pornokitsch?

The blog will be running on autopilot for the next few days while we gallivant around Prestatyn for the SFX Weekender.  Jared's moderating something Elftastic with Joe Abercrombie, Juliet McKenna, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Gav Thorpe and Graham McNeill on the Main Stage on Friday, 3pm. And we'll both be prancing around like lunatics at 7pm in the Screening Zone for The Kitschies. Hope to see you there!

Meanwhile, things will be pretty quiet 'round here. The Kitschies winners - technology pending - should be announced by 8 pm on Friday. Anne's also the guest at Paul Cornell's "Casual Friday" this week, talking about what's on her mind.

If you're looking for entertainment, don't forget that you can win a Tentacle by correctly predicting the winners of The Kitschies. Or you can pre-order a copy of Pandemonium: Stories of the Smoke. Or you can RSVP for the upcoming Gothic Evening at Blackwell's Charing Cross.

Next week, we stop making announcements and start doing some work - reviews, reviews, guest reviews and an interview with a criminal legend (that is, one of the finest mystery writers of the past century - not a notorious serial killer).
