News From The Abyss 31/8/10

Shadows And Tall Trees is a proposed new annual publication from Undertow Books :-

“Shadows & Tall Trees will showcase literate, thought-provoking, and entertaining stories that straddle genre lines and blur the boundaries of fantasy and horror. Below, you’ll find a rough mock-up. The design and fonts will change, but the artwork, Winter Silence, a photograph taken in Skopje by Mitat Seferi, will adorn our first cover. Our feature fiction is:

The Ghost Days of Melody Brown, by Geordie Flantz

Stone Head, by Adam Golaski

The Coming of Ghosts, by Sandra Kasturi

Crow’s Nest, by Joel Lane

The Blue Notebooks, by Nicholas Royle

Everything Floats, by Simon Strantzas”

Thanks to Tor/Forge for a copy of their new  edition of The Sword Of The Dawn by Michael Moorcock :-

“In Michael Moorcock’s vast and imaginative multiverse, Law and Chaos wage war in a never-ending struggling over the fundamental rules of existence. Here in this universe, Dorian Hawkmoon traverses a world of antique cities, scientific sorcery, and crystalline machines as he pulled unwillingly into a war that pits him against the ruthless and dominating armies of Granbretan.

In The Sword of the Dawn, Dorian Hawkmoon’s quest to destroy the Dark Empire of Granbretan leads him onto the path of a man who possess a rare ring that allows men to travel through time. Hawkmoon uses this ring to travel to a far future New Orleans, where he must battle the Pirate Lords who possess the Great Sword of the Dawn, which can end the Dark Empire once and for all.”

It’s been a while since I read any Moorcock so looking forward to this one.

Finally I am now accepting ebooks for review (PDF’s or epub), so if you have any you would like featured then send an email to the usual address (cgleslie(at) Physical copies may still receive preferential treatment (because they are nicer :-)) but I realise that many writers/publishers can’t afford to send hard copies out to reviewers these days. As always get in touch if you have any queries.
