Announcing a few more authors ;)
« on: June 24, 2012, 01:34:32 PM »
So, I am sending out a newsletter this week, but for Twitter followers and Forum users I will be revealing this a little early.

The authors included within the anthology are amongst my favourite writers within the genre. Some I'm lucky enough to be able to call friends, others have decided that they want to help the site and support the new authors who we are holding the competition for. Whatever their reason, I believe the following authors featuring within our anthology are doing a huge service to myself and everyone who visits this site and who has been inspired to enter the fantasy writing contest. Without these people, there would be no anthology, no writing contest and, potentially, no Fantasy-Faction.

I hope you'll be as excited as I am when you read some of the names we are ready to release to you and perhaps even join me in offering them a thank you or two ;)

Short Stories
Mark Lawrence
Myke Cole
Richard Ford
Adrian Tchaikovsky
Jon Sprunk
Michael J. Sullivan

Articles
Mark Newton
Tom Pollock
Douglas Hulick
Richard Morgan
James Barclay
Anne Lyle

Just as exciting as the lists above is the fact that we still have around 4/5 authors left to announce (subject to their other commitments). We will be releasing their names, all going well, at a rate of one a month until release.

next month: COVER LAUNCH!

Thanks for reading! :)

WOW! That's an impressive line up! This is shaping up to be a hell of a collection, well done guys.

And cover launch next month! Will admit I like the one that's been being used up to now.

In that case... this one will blow you away!!!!

So, who were the contest winners?

Looking forward to this, most interested in the articles section - I always enjoy reading other people's opinions on what fantasy is/means to them.

We have yet to finish reading the entries, so we have no idea who's won yet. ;) We got about 1700 so it's going to take us till the end of the month to get through them all.

No, I think he knows why, Autumn. Excellent lineup, it's going to be an extremely good anthology.
I will expand your TBR pile.

Stunning line up ... even if there were no more announcements, it would still be one of THE publishing events in fantasy of 2013.

More announcements? So there are yet more authors to be added? Ooooo Oooo WHO WHO!!

I may have a sex wee if something involving gentlemen that are bastards appears on the list.

Marc, Paul, Jennie - you should all be seriously proud of compiling a list of authors like the one above. (And that's after the fact that you're reading 1700 short stories, and hand-picking 6 of the best. Awesome.) I have no idea if there's a category, but I'll be the first to cry HUGO!

Quite an impressive load you shouldered there. Doing all this with a team of three (and in your free time!) - that's what I call devotion (and a talent for organizing and time-management). Way to go!

Ditto, I think it's incredible, the amount of dedication from Marc, Paul and Jennie. Fantastic line up as well. Big thank you to all the authors for their time and their support and to you guys for giving us this anthology, I can't wait.  :)
