I’ve heard The Terror is excellent and sounds like it’s well worth a limited Subterranean Press edition. Also in the same news story its mentioned that Dan Simmons contributed a 26,000 word novella to the new Songs of Dying Earth anthology tribute to Jack Vance. I’m looking forward to getting my copy of this even more now!
Great pulp reissue from Paizo Publishing, Masters of the Pit is one of the Martian fantasy romances that Moorcock wrote imitating Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Locus Award winners have been announced, mostly the usual suspects, but I thought an award for Terry Pratchett was a bit of a surprise, although well deserved.
Update on last post on this – the videos are actually on YouTube in video format – search for Michael Moorcock, although the MP3 is now on the Starship Sofa site too!
Here’s the first part – which definitely rocks!
Good news for the Songs of Dying Earth anthology – stories added from Mike Resnick and Jeff VanderMeer plus Jack Vance himself!
A nifty idea for a book promotion – suggest your own 25 word epitaph for your tombstone! Subterranean Press are running this promo for Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book.
Website for the book is here.
My epitaph is:
A man of talent and wit,
Writer of words sad yet funny.
Some said “a shame he didn’t see fit
To ever write a check to us for our money”.
Just read about this Michael Moorcock interview – seems like it’s well worth a listen!
I haven’t read these titles, but they do sound interesting! Great cover:
A simple but rather wonderful theory – that as agriculture developed, farmers wore green bead amulets for luck. More green stuff around I guess in the fertile crescent.
Implications for world building – simple and obvious associations sometimes the most realistic?
Thank goodness – Harry Harrison didn’t mean it after all! It’s all getting a bit cold-war deja vu with Russia isn’t it!
