Next week we will be getting the first delivery of our Fantasy-Faction Anthology!

This first edition print is a special edition that we will be making available just to you guys, Fantasy-Faction’s Website and Forum users, a month before the ISBN editions (both ebook and print) are launched and distributed.

The reason we have created this edition is because we wanted to make sure that Fantasy-Faction users had the opportunity to own our anthology before anyone else. For those who don’t know the story the anthology is made up of six contest winners and the rest are short stories and articles by professional authors. NONE OF THE PROFESSIONAL AUTHORS WERE PAID FOR THEIR WORK. They all donated stories and articles to us to support our site! (Which isn’t cheap to run and which, a few years back, was struggling to cover costs.) Fantasy-Faction’s popularity and reputation meant all these writers were more than willing to help and essentially means you guys made this whole project possible. Without you all this never would never have happened. You guys visit us regularly, talk about us, recommend us, retweet us, comment on our articles and reviews, and it truly means so much.

As you all know, and as with all things Fantasy-Faction, this whole project is not for profit. All we want to do is cover our costs and HOPEFULLY make enough to fund the server costs and another writing contest in the future. For that reason we are only asking cost price for this anthology of £7.00 + P&P of £2.80 (in the US and Canada $12.00 + shipping & handling of $4.50) and leave it up to you if you’d like to pay anything extra towards the site/future projects in form of a donation – I’m kind of reluctant to call it ‘pay what you like’, because we have to cover costs, you see. Oh, and if you are coming to our Grim Gathering and would like a copy then I can bring it with me and you can skip the postage. :)

Finally, I’d just like to say that this has been one heck of a ride and one heck of a learning experience. Putting together an anthology is so, so much more difficult than we expected, but even more rewarding too. We really hope that you enjoy reading what we have all created. Truly, we think this anthology represents our community superbly – it’s fun, it’s fantastical and it’s diverse!

In total we have just 100 special edition copies of this anthology: 50 in the UK and 50 in the US. Also, of course, if you have already preordered then a copy should be on its way to you when we get these website editions in. :)

You can pre-order with PayPal here: http://fantasy-faction.com/2014/fantasy-faction-anthology-website-visitor-edition

Hi!

I pre-ordered a hard copy back in May 2012. I was wondering if everyone was already sent the anthologies, or do you prioritize UK and US orders? Will I get the ISBN edition when it's out?

I'm not in a hurry or anything; to be honest I kind of forgot about making the order :D Still, it would be nice to get to read it (and to have it in my bookcase, it looks really nice).

Cheers!

Hey Mahdoton ^_^

The next batch of UK & US orders are going out next week - we're almost there I think (we've got about 30 books outstanding, but that should be covered with this next order - hurrah!!!).

PM me your name and address and I shall match it up with Paypal and make sure you are on this next order. Thank you again for your patience, which has been exceptional - 30 months! Wow!

Just ordered the anthology now via Paypal.
There some left around the office, I presume?

Looking forward to reading!
