Title: Clues on authors still to be announced
Post by: Overlord on January 22, 2012, 05:52:13 PM
Well, as you all know - Fantasy-Faction is announcing one author a month for their fantasy-faction anthology. I am not going to tell you whether you are right or not - but for bragging rights as we announce names... feel free to try and guess names as we paste clues below ;)

P.S. They are Purposely VERY, VERY hard and therefore I would be surprised if anyone got them - but hey... prove me wrong ;)

I checked the wikipedia list for noteable people from the Isle of Wight and from that it's either Bear Grylls, Alan Titchmarsh or Dickens... That's enough investigating for me!

Well, I think I recognise the decor of that particular bookshop. Is it WJ Stuart? He novellised the film of that store....

Kim Newman's doing the latest booksigning announced on their website? Didn't Elspeth Cooper do a signing there last year, along with Brandon Sanderson, Trudi Canavan and every other SFF author in the world? I'll also throw in Aaronivitch (works in Covent Garden Waterstone's) and Joe Abercrombie (did a signing last year and did an interview recently).

well clearly Robert Silverberg will be in
Is that because the lights are on in the picture, so you're assuming it's Nightfall?

No because its the LAW that Robert Silverberg must feature in every Fantasy anthology.

Still struggling on the Forbidden Planet one. Unless it's a trick and that's Overlord in the background?

Oh, that's Forbidden Planet? I've not been there for, er, more years than I care to remember. It looks different....

I guessed it was Forbidden Planet, but all I could think of was Leslie Neilsen :)

Elspeth Cooper.





I had the same thought about the first one - Mark Charan Newton

But as the car is apparently a Ford, I would be more inclined to opt for Richard Ford ( or Jasper Fforde, maybe ) for that one.

Overlord may be relatively new to the fantasy addiction which now controls his life, but I suspect he has already succumbed to the genre's bad puns. That car's definitely a Ford Capri - we used to have one when I was little. But it's also a coupe...

So if your name isn't readily turned into a visual clue, do you have no hope of getting into the anthology?  My middle name is Rose, but I don't think anyone asked.  Sigh.
