NEW YORK, NY - November 2, 2015: In this time of flux and accelerated evolution in the field of genre publishing, the editorial leaders of Harper Voyager Books are delighted to announce an exciting venture that will offer talented aspiring writers the chance to join the same science fiction and fantasy imprint that publishes such visionary authors as Richard Kadrey, Chuck Wendig, Raymond E. Feist, and many, many more.

For the first time since 2012, Harper Voyager is offering writers the chance to submit full, un-agented manuscripts for a limited five-day period. The publisher is seeking new authors with fresh voices, strong storytelling abilities, original ideas and compelling storylines. In this Open Call, Harper Voyager will be seeking out novels written in the Urban Fantasy and Military Sci-Fi genres. Submission guidelines and key information can be found at www.harpervoyagersubmissions.com.

The submission portal, www.harpervoyagersubmissions.com, will be open from noon ET on the 2nd to noon ET of the 6th of November 2015. The manuscripts will then be read, and all submissions will receive a letter notifying them of whether or not their submission is being offered publication on the Voyager list. As with every Harper Voyager project, the author will be paired with an editor, publicist, and marketing team in order to develop the manuscript and promotional efforts before and during publication.

The submissions and digital publications are spearheaded by Executive Editor David Pomerico.  He notes that: “The last time we had an open call, we had over 4,500 submissions, and were able to add 10 new voices to our growing list. We know, though, that writers are always eager to connect with editors here, and we’re excited to offer them an opportunity to do exactly that. These are two sub-genres we are finding a lot of readers for—especially in the digital space—and I’m looking forward to finding some great new projects.”

For more information about the publisher, please visit: www.harpervoyagerbooks.com.

Museum of Science Fiction Partners with Universities for CubeSat Competition to Build and Launch Spacecraft
 
Washington, DC (Oct. 20, 2015) – The Museum of Science Fiction, the world’s first comprehensive science fiction museum, in partnership with NASA and Cornell University, is excited to announce a global CubeSat competition for high school students with the winning proposals to be built and put on orbit by a future NASA mission.  Students will have until January 31, 2016 to submit their proposals. The winners will be announced on April 15, 2016 with an award ceremony at Escape Velocity in Washington, DC on July 2, 2016.

 "In space, small is beautiful. Micro-spacecraft will help open the solar system to exploration by small groups, universities, and regular human beings," remarked David Brin, author of The Postman, Earth, and Existence and member of the Museum of Science Fiction's Board of Advisors.

 CubeSats are small, grapefruit-size spacecraft that use commercially available space technologies and simple logistics for launch and operation. CubeSats usually have a volume of about one liter (a 10 cm cube) and a mass of no more than 1.33 kilograms. While launch services can be purchased from private companies such as XCOR and Nanoracks Inc., NASA offers free launch services through its CubeSat Launch Initiative for educational projects such as the Museum’s competition.

 "The core of the Museum of Science Fiction's mission is education, particularly in the STEM fields," said Mason Peck, member of the Museum of Science Fiction’s Board of Advisors, Associate Professor in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University, and the Director of Cornell's Space Systems Design Studio. "Advances in low-cost, high-performance consumer electronics and the rise of Do-It-Yourself technologies bring launching a spacecraft within reach of all of us. With this new opportunity in mind, we propose a competition in which high school students compete to offer the most compelling concept for a new CubeSat, to be implemented, built, and launched by the Museum and its partners.”

Each winning high school team will be paired with a university capable of creating the technology to realize their science fiction visions. Participating universities include: Cornell University, Oregon State University, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the University of Idaho, the University of Kentucky, the University of Vermont, and Arizona State University.

CINE EXCESS GETS GRAPHIC IN BRIGHTON
                      POOR ANGRY WHITE KIDS: ACTION EXCESS AND THE CULT UNIVERSE OF PAT MILLS                                           Saturday 14th November    venue:  University of Brighton   time: 12pm

                      Violence in comics debate with Martin Barker, Pat Mills and Jim McCarthy       
                                           
The 9th annual Cine Excess international festival turns its focus on the world of graphic novels for the first time with a special panel discussion on violence in comics featuring Professor Martin Barker, comic book writer and editor Pat Mills (Judge Dredd, Charley’s War) and 2000AD artist Jim McCarthy.  The event takes place on Saturday 14th November at 12pm in the University of Brighton Grand Parade Building.

With particular focus on the ground-breaking Action Comics and 2000AD which Pat Mills created and edited, the panel will also discuss his work in relation to wider social trends and tensions in British society during the 1970s and 1980s.  Other graphic novel writers and artists are expected to be in attendance too.  Pat Mills will also be presented with a Cine Excess Lifetime Achievement Award.

Professor Martin Barker is emeritus professor in film and television at Aberystwyth University. He has written widely on censorship and comics, most significantly in the seminal books ‘A HAUNT OF FEARS: THE STRANGE HISTORY OF BRITISH HORROR COMICS CAMPAIGN’ and  ‘ACTION – THE STORY OF A VIOLENT COMIC’.  Pat Mills is best known for his powerful World War I series, Charley’s War as well as writing many popular characters for 2000AD (Judge Dredd, Nemesis the Warlock , Sláine) . Sussex-based Jim McCarthy drew Bad Company and Bix Barton for 2000AD, but has also written and drawn Godspeed: The Curt Cobain Graphic and Sex Pistols: The Graphic Novel.

Launched in 1976 under Mills’ editorship, Action Comic’s brand of violent storytelling revolutionised British comics, with characters such as Hook Jaw, Dredger, Hellman of Hammer Force and Kids Rule OK proving popular with readers at the same time they generated considerable notoriety. Campaigning from Mary Whitehouse and criticism on BBC’s Nationwide led to a temporary halt in publication when one issue was completely pulped.

The Martin Barker and Pat Mills panel discussion is part of the annual Cine-Excess cult film conference. This year’s theme is ‘Historical Trauma, Hysterical Texts, Cult Film in Times of Crisis’, which is complimented by a range of tie in screenings, including the UK theatrical premiere of the new Canadian cannibal film, Feed the Devil (2014) directed by Max Perrier.

Cine Excess 2015 runs 12th – 14th November. Delegates passes for the full event cost £100/£60 (concessions), with a special screening pass priced £10/£5 (concessions).

Full details of Cine Excess public events and screenings will be released at the end of October.   www.cine-excess.co.uk

Conventions and events / Apex’s Christmas Invasion Flash Fiction 2015
« on: October 15, 2015, 12:43:10 PM »
Apex’s Christmas Invasion

It’s time for Apex Publications’ annual flash fiction contest. This year our theme is Apex’s Christmas Invasion.

That’s right. This year our flash fiction contest is all about Christmas invasions. Whether your invaders are robots, aliens, or sentient Christmas ornaments is completely up to you, but if you want to win, you must write us a story no longer than 250 words that deals with an invasion and Christmas.

If writing a short tale about a Christmas invasion isn't enough for you, then you are in luck! As an early Christmas gift from us at Apex to all of you, everyone who enters will receive a free issue of Apex Magazine. All you need to do is let us know which issue you would like to receive and we will send you a download link.

But what about winners? It is a contest, so there has to be a winner. From all of the submissions, we will select not one, but three winners. The winning stories will be featured in the December issue of Apex Magazine, and the authors will be paid 6 cents per word. In addition to being published in Apex Magazine, they will also win 3 Apex books of their choice. Check out our full catalog of titles here.

The nitty, gritty:

* Submissions open on 12:01am EST, October 15th and close at 11:59pm EST, November 16th.

* Stories must be 250 words or fewer. If a story is longer than that, it will be deleted unread.

* You may submit up to 3 times, but please submit each entry in a separate email.

* Submissions should include a brief cover letter, including which issue of Apex Magazine you’d like to receive, as well as the story.

* Stories should be in the body of the email. Do NOT send attachments. * Send all submissions to [email protected].

If you have any questions or would like to query about the status of your submission, email our managing editor Lesley Conner at [email protected].

APEX PUBLICATIONS (www.apexbookcompany.com) is a small press dedicated to publishing exemplary works of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Owned and operated by Jason B. Sizemore, Apex publishes the thrice Hugo Award-nominated Apex Magazine. The Apex catalog contains books by genre luminaries such as Damien Angelica Walters, Catherynne M. Valente, and Brian Keene.

Harper Voyager will be hosting an open call for submission from 10/2 – 10/6. There’s more information below, as well as a link to our submissions portal (http://harpervoyagersubmissions.com/)—if you could all post about it on your sites and various social media platforms, we would so appreciate the help in getting the word out. Thank you so much!

 While we’re always on the lookout for full-length fantasy, science fiction, and horror, we’re really in the market right now for Urban Fantasy and Military Sci-Fi. And be sure to check back throughout the year—we’ll be doing other calls for different genres as well!

Keep in mind we are looking for full length manuscripts between 60,000 and 90,000 words. The submission window closes on November 6th so get your manuscripts ready!

Conventions and events / Lakes Festival Original Comic Art Auction 2015
« on: October 05, 2015, 04:40:49 AM »
Kendal, 5th October 2015: In June 2012 London hosted the Olympics. But in November 2015 there’s something even bigger coming to the capital. Yes, it’s the Lakes International Comic Art Festival Grand Auction of Original Comic Art, featuring works by the likes of Ian Churchill, Hunt Emerson, Dave Gibbons, Jamie Hewlett, Sean Phillips, Bryan Talbot, the team from VIZ and more – with art being added to the auction over the next few weeks.

Proceeds from the auction – which will be run by Jonathan Ross, side by side with Kendal’s Tim Farron MP (and Lib Dem leader) will help to raise funds for future Lakes International Comic Art Festival projects after this year’s upcoming event (16th – 18th October 2015) in Kendal.

Over the last few weeks and months some of the greatest artists currently working in comics have been scouring their archives and generously donating dozens of gorgeous pieces of artwork for our auction. We have items ranging from brief doodles by great masters to the original sketches behind cover images that have sold in their thousands all over the world.

The auction will take place on 24th November at Orbital Comics in London, and the catalogue is live online right now, where you can also bid if you can’t make the actual event (places are very limited!)

The auction will be running both online and in the room simultaneously, so you can log in no matter where you are. Just register to bid at Proxibid, and you’re all set. In fact it’s a good idea to register whether you’re planning to come on the night or not.

•  Visit it at https://www.proxibid.com/asp/Catalog.asp?aid=101175. And do check back regularly because we have new works coming in all the time

• A huge line up of both British and globe-spanning international comics talent is being lined up for this year’s Lakes International Comic Art Festival, taking place 16th – 18th October 2015. Visit the web site at www.comicartfestival.com

• The Lakes International Comic Art Festival would like to thank the donating artists, Peter Kessler, Orbital Comics and Proxibid for their support for this charity auction

Also being offered (so far) are artworks by Charlie Adlard (Walking Dead), Dan Berry, Mark Buckingham (Fables), Ian Churchill (Revenge), Joe Decie, Jonathan Edwards (Tank Girl), Oliver East, Duncan Fegredo (Hellboy), Junko Mizuno, Bill Morrison, Darick Robertson (The Boys), Posy Simmonds (Gemma Bovery), Bryan Talbot (Grandville) the VIZ artists (Roger Mellie, Fat Slags), Joost Swarte (Jopo de Pogo) and Jeff Smith (Bone) – with more art that will be drawn at the Festival itself to be added to the growing list.

• Visit it at https://www.proxibid.com/asp/Catalog.asp?aid=101175. And do check back regularly because we have new works coming in all the time

SIGNING SCHEDULE

All creators signing in our booth offer their autographs for FREE. FREE prints, comics, or posters are provided for all of our signings (while supplies last). You may purchase or bring items to be signed; however, we may restrict the type or number of items to be signed as necessary.

Some signings require a wristband for entry, as noted on the schedule. Drawings for wristbands for these events will begin at show opening the day before and day of each signing. Come to the Dark Horse booth early for your best chance to join these events.

Lines may also be closed for other signings due to crowding or time restrictions.

We have two signing stages, denoted by the art on each stage. The location of each signing is indicated by the following abbreviations:

HB = Hellboy Signing Stage
FC = Fight Club 2 Signing Stage

All events are subject to change. Some restrictions apply. Please see Dark Horse Comics staff if you have questions.
