ANNOUNCING THE LAUNCH OF TOM POLLOCK’S ‘THE CITY’S SON

FORBIDDEN PLANET LONDON THURSDAY 9th AUGUST 6 – 7pm

TOM POLLOCK will be reading from and signing his stunning debut novel, THE CITY’S SON (Jo Fletcher Books) at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Thursday 9th August from 6 – 7pm.

Hidden under the surface of everyday London is a city of monsters and miracles, where wild train spirits stampede over the tracks and glass-skinned dancers with glowing veins light the streets. When a devastating betrayal drives her from her home, graffiti artist Beth Bradley stumbles into the secret city, where she finds Filius Viae, London's ragged crown prince, just when he needs someone most. An ancient enemy has returned to the darkness under St Paul's Cathedral, bent on reigniting a centuries-old war, and Beth and Fil find themselves in a desperate race through a bizarre urban wonderland, searching for a way to save the city they both love. The City's Son is the first book of The Skyscraper Throne trilogy: a story about family, friends and monsters, and how you can't always tell which is which.

Tom Pollock is a graduate of the Sussex University Creative Writing Programme, and a member of the London-based writers' group The T-Party. He has lived everywhere from Scotland to Sumatra, but the peculiar magic of London has always drawn him back.

J T COLGAN SIGNING DOCTOR WHO: DARK HORIZONS


FORBIDDEN PLANET LONDON TUESDAY 10th JULY 6 – 7pm


J T COLGAN will be signing DOCTOR WHO: DARK HORIZONS, at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Tuesday 10th July from 6 – 7pm. 


"Now, you may or may not have noticed, but we appear to be on fire..."

On a windswept northern shore, at the very tip of what will one day become Scotland, the islanders believe the worst they have to fear is a Viking attack. Then the burning comes. They cannot run from it. Water will not stop it. It consumes everything in its path - yet the burned still speak. The Doctor is just looking for a game on the famous Lewis chess set. Instead he encounters a people under attack from a power they cannot possibly understand. Add in some marauding Vikings with very bad timing, a kidnapped princess with a secret of her own and a TARDIS that seems to have developed an inexplicable fear of water, and they all have a battle on their hands. The islanders must take on a ruthless alien force in a world without technology; without communications; without tea that isn't made out of bark. Still at least they have the Doctor on their side... Don't they?

J T Colgan has written thirteen bestselling novels as Jenny Colgan, which have sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide. Of writing the book Jenny says, “Writing Dark Horizons has been… a dream come true for me. I grew up on Terrance Dicks and I'm beyond thrilled to be joining the ranks of Doctor Who novelists.”

Press Releases / Zombie deal with Telos for Sam Stone
« on: June 08, 2012, 03:49:20 AM »
Zombie deal with Telos for Sam Stone

 Stephen James Walker, Editorial Director of Telos Publishing in London, has acquired world rights in a new zombie novella by Sam Stone. The novella, entitled Zombies at Tiffany’s, will be published in September 2012.

Sam is the award-winning author of four vampire novels collectively called ‘The Vampire Gene’ published successfully by The House of Murky Depths. A fifth title in her series, Silent Sand, is due to be published in the autumn. She said, of this deal:

 “It’s great to be back working with Telos again after the superb job they did with my horror collection Zombies in New York and Other Bloody Jottings last year. The new novella is riffing on the famous Audrey Hepburn/Blake Edwards film and the novella by Truman Capote, but it’s not the same as either. I enjoy playing with the genres, and this time we have a steampunk Victorian adventure. With zombies. In the famous Tiffany’s store in New York. It’s a lot of fun, and I even have a Jewish zombie wandering around who can only eat Kosher brains – that’s a nod to the character of Shagal the Inn Keeper, brilliantly played by Alfie Bass in the Polanski film The Fearless Vampire Killers.”

 Sam Stone’s first novel, Killing Kiss, won the silver award for Best Horror Novel in ForeWord Magazine’s Book of the Year competition, and her subsequent novels and short stories have gained her much acclaim, including winning the British Fantasy Award. She holds an MA in Creative Writing and is a noted public speaker and lecturer. Sam’s website is at www.sam-stone.com, and Telos Publishing is at www.telos.co.uk.

Commissioning Editor Michael Stevens said, ‘It was amazing to discover the gems people sent us last time we ran this appeal. We’re hoping for an equally exciting response this time, aspeoplemay still have excerpts which are no longer in the BBC archive and haven't previously come to light.’

PROMETHEUS: THE ART OF THE FILM ALREADY IN HIGH DEMAND

Upcoming Book From Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and Titan Books Gives Exclusive Look at New Sci-Fi Epic

---

Showcasing the most eagerly awaited film of 2012, the latest book from Titan Books and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, PROMETHEUS: THE ART OF THE FILM, has created such a demand from fans that the book is already being re-printed for a third run prior to its publication date on June 12th  [UK: June 8 2012]. As the only book to directly tie in to the film, this lavish title serves as an exclusive guide to never-before-seen content, including newly revealed production art, exclusive interviews, extraordinary behind-the-scenes material and an introduction by legendary director Ridley Scott.


Written by Mark Salisbury, PROMETHEUS: THE ART OF THE FILM, offers fans the opportunity to delve deeper into this epic science-fiction production. Ridley Scott, director of Alien and Blade Runner, returns to the genre he helped define.  With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race. The film releases from Twentieth Century Fox in 3D in theaters June 8th and stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, and Charlize Theron.

"While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place," Scott explains. "The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien's DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn't be more pleased to have found the singular tale I'd been searching for, and finally return to this genre that's so close to my heart." 


The book is currently available for pre-order at www.titanbooks.com/prometheus.

Mutant bounty hunter Durham Red returns to 2000 AD

She’s the bounty hunter with bite, the one and only Strontium Bitch - and she’s back in the pages of 2000 AD this week!
 
Durham Red, the bounty hunter whose mutation gives her a vampiric lust for blood, is back and this time she’s bloodier than ever.

Beginning in Prog 1784, The ‘Nobody Wants This Job’ Job story has been drawn by Durham Red co-creator, Carlos Ezquerra, and sees Red take on her very first commission as a Search/Destroy agent - which if she’s not careful could end up being her last!

Originally created in 1987 by John Wagner, Alan Grant, and Carlos Ezquerra for the popular long-running series Strontium Dog, Red remains one of the strip’s most popular characters alongside Johnny Alpha and Wulf Sternhammer.
 
Strontium 90 fall out. In this divided society, the only job open to mutants is as bounty hunters, the so-called Strontium Dogs, who hunt criminals across the galaxy.

Last seen in a series of far future epics written by Dan Abnett, in which she awoke from cryogenic suspension to find that she was being worshipped by a sect of mutants. Grant has now returned Durham
In a world devastated by the aftermath of an atomic war, a genetic apartheid is created where unaffected ‘norms’ discriminate against ‘muties’, whose bodies have been warped by radioactive Red to her blood-soaked roots in a story set in her first days as a mutant bounty hunter.

2000 AD Prog 1785, priced £2.35, hits UK newsstands this Wednesday and will be available digitally worldwide from http://shop.2000adonline.com this Friday. Physical copies will be available in North America from 13th June.

OK folk

How many changes from our baseline reality do you have to make before a story qualifies as Science Fiction??

I'm not being judgement as to what, that can always be done based on feedback, just the number of changes involved.

Is there a dividing line??

In just a few short days, Flesk Publications will be exhibiting at the inaugural "Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!" event in Kansas City, Missouri, running from May 18-20. Please bear with us: this event is somewhat staggering in scope, and there is a great deal to cover…

Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!

This event is conceived and organized by Cathy and Arnie Fenner as a live extension of their industry shaping annual, Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art. Like its published inspiration, "Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!" is a melting pot of artistic talent. Featuring 200 art exhibitors, panel discussions, lectures, live painting demonstrations, and portfolio reviews by renowned art directors from the world's leading creative companies, this is the art event for everyone: artists, students, collectors, and fans-who love fantastic art in all its incarnations.

"Spectrum is about embracing diversity," explain the Fenner's, "'Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!' will open the doors to everyone, with the distinctly positive goal of increasing the awareness, appreciation and opportunities of and for artists of all sensibilities."

Spectrum Fantastic Art Live! Commemorative Art Book

In addition to our role as an exhibitor, Flesk Publications was asked to produce a book that would commemorate this event. Flesk’s Spectrum Fantastic Art Live! hardcover art book explores the work of the show’s five special guests, each a master in contemporary fantastic art. This lavish edition illuminates the art of:

Android Jones, cutting-edge creator, live-stage digital painter at music and art festivals around the world and co-founder of Massive Black. He has created concept art for industry powerhouses such as Nintendo and Industrial Light & Magic.
Brom, an artist whose distinctive vision has been applied to novels, games, comics and film. He's created a series of award-winning horror novels that he both writes and illustrates, titled The Child Thief, The Plucker and The Devil's Rose.
Iain McCaig, world-renowned illustrator, director, storyboard artist, concept artist and character designer. His best-known designs are of the iconic Star Wars characters Darth Maul and Padme Amidala.
Phil Hale, prolific in both the commercial and fine-arts fields, he boasts clients ranging from Microsoft to Playboy. His fine art has been exhibited in galleries across Europe as well as on the walls of Westminster Abbey.
Mike Mignola--writer, artist, designer and concept artist--is the creator of Hellboy, B.P.R.D. and the Amazing Screw-On Head. He is perhaps one of the most respected figures in contemporary comics.

Individually, these artists are peerless in vision and style. Collectively, they represent a rich cross-section of the best in contemporary art. This fine-art companion to "Spectrum Fantastic Art Live!" is a lush, unique study of an incomparable collection of artists. It is limited to 2000 copies.

There will be a book signing at the Flesk booth #500 on Saturday from 2:30-4:00. All five contributing artists will be in attendance.

The Artists of Flesk Prime

Also in attendance will be the five incomparable artists of Flesk Prime, an introduction to five of the top artists that make up the current artistic core of Flesk Publications.

Craig Elliott, visual development artist, character designer and concept artist having worked primarily for Disney and DreamWorks;
Gary Gianni, Eisner Award winning for his illustrator of a wide variety of books, including The Complete Conan of Cimmeria, Michael Chabon’s Gentlemen of the Road, and the Prince Valiant Sunday comic strip;
Petar Meseldzija, illustrator and fine artist of works including covers for books of children's fantasy literature for Scholastic, and Flesk’s The Legend of Steel Bashaw;
 Harvey and Eisner Award-winning Mark Schultz, American cartoonist, illustrator and writer, perhaps best known as the creator of Xenozoic Tales and his writing for the newspaper strip Prince Valiant; and
William Stout, one of America’s foremost fantasy and film artists, dinosaur muralists and illustrators, having contributed to over thirty films including Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park, Walt Disney’s Dinosaur and Guillermo del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth.

Each of the book’s over seventy-five illustrations are handpicked by the artists themselves, specifically for this collection; a unique and personal exploration of this varied and unparalleled group of artists.

All five artists will be signing copies of Flesk Prime at the show.
