If any reviewers reading this would be interested in reading either Silversands, Feral Companions or both, then drop me a line detailing who indeed you are and who you write for.

Well, the last twelve months, even without thinking about publishing, has gone by in a whirl – that Roger Waters' lyric is pretty spot-on. I was hoping to catch up on my own writing, though life just conspired against me and I wrote rather sparingly – but I did manage to read quite a bit, though.
But, now is the time to think about the Big Re-Launch, and with no further ado, you will find added to the Pendragon site our first two publications for 2010:
Feral Companions, a collection of two novellas from Simon Maginn and Gary Fry; two tales of suburban unease from two masters of modern horror fiction (and the first from Simon Maginn in over ten years). This will be be launched at World Horror Convention in Brighton, with the first 100 copies signed and numbered.
Silversands by Gareth L Powell, the debut novel from a rapidly rising star in contemporary science fiction, and previously responsible from the critically acclaimed collection The Last Reef. Launched at EasterCon, this will also have the first 100 copies signed and numbered.
Both books are available in the attractive and sturdy PPC-format ("Printed Paper Case").
In other news, Triquorum is resting… I am in the process of contacting all those who have submitted a story, accepted or on "second read". I essentially ran before I could walk, and running the two things together single-handed was just too much, hence another reason for the Pendragon hiatus.
Now that I'm re-starting Pendragon, Triquorum is on the backfoot, but it will be re-launched soon-ish and a slightly different guise.
Also, and why not take advantage of the special offer currently running where you can pick up a copy of New Writings in the Fantastic plus We Fade to Grey for the paltry sum of £15? This would make a perfect gift…
Anyway, that's it for now; I shall be at the British Fantasy Society Open Night on 5th December – if you're in London, then pop along; if you're feeling flush, buy me a beer (or if you're after a particular book, let me know and I'll bring it along…)
Be seeing you.
