Eisner Award-nominee Ian Edginton is the latest guest to be announced as attending The Birmingham Comics Festival that is taking place on Saturday April 18th 2015 at Edgbaston Cricket Stadium.

The Birmingham comic book writer has become renowned in recent years as a man whose keyboard fingers know their way out of a cliffhanger adventure set in the past,  and frequently in a past one step removed from the ones you read about in history books  - From his graphic novel adaptations of the adventures of that master detective Sherlock Holmes to his extrapolations on H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds in a trilogy of books, and authoring his own such alternative history sagas with the likes of Leviathan and Stickleback, both originally serialised in 2000AD then subsequently collected into their own volumes.

Such themes are but a single string to his creative bow, having written gamely for Marvel Comics The X-Men spin-off X-Force and Blade: The Vampire Hunter, and the superhero sagas of Stormwatch for WildStorm, Witchblade for Top Cow, plus the likes of Batman for DC Comics.

Ian Edginton established his career writing hit comic book series based on popular film and TV franchises like Aliens, Terminator, Xena: Warrior Princess and Planet of the Apes for Dark Horse Comics, with further such scripting triumphs elsewhere including Star Trek for Marvel and Touchwood for Titan. He has co-written comic books and worked for a number of publishers, the results of this work finding him nominated for several Eisner Awards (Best Short Story in 1998 for The Willow Warriors featured in  Weird War Tales #1, published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint for whom he created the recent post-apocalyptic series Hinterkind, and as Best Writer and for Best Limited Series in 2007 for The Great Game, that was published by Dark Horse).   

“Ian Edginton is becoming a veritable viscount of Victoriana steam punk, and we’re all relishing his work as he develops such wonderful creations as Stickleback,” said the festival’s organisers. “And while he may have rewritten the past fictionally it’s at The Birmingham Comics Festival where he’ll be revealing the truth about what the future has in store!” 

Fans of Ian Edginton can look forward to meeting the writer who will be signing copies of his books and talking about his creative exploits with other guests at The Birmingham Comics Festival on Saturday April 18th 2015 at Edgbaston Cricket Stadium.

Alpena, MI (December 31, 2014) – World Weaver Press (Eileen Wiedbrauk, Editor-in-Chief) has announced the anthology Far Orbit: Apogee, the second volume of the science fiction adventure series edited by Bascomb James, will be open to submissions January 1 – March 31, 2015.

World Weaver Press is looking for modern space adventures crafted in the Grand Tradition to be included in the second volume of the acclaimed Far Orbit science fiction adventure series. Editor Bascomb James is seeking stories that establish a new tradition in the much maligned sci-fi adventure genera -- smart, modern stories built around the classic traditions; stories that are creative, readable, and memorable; midnight indulgences; exciting stories that transport you from the everyday grind and leave you wondrously satisfied.

For full submission guidelines and details, visit: http://www.worldweaverpress.com/submit-anthologies.html

Bascomb James is a clinical virologist, author, and editor who lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He has authored a hat-full of scientific papers, authored or edited four scientific textbooks, contributed numerous textbook chapters, and presented countless scientific lectures and workshops. A science fiction fan since childhood, Bascomb credits his interest in science, engineering, and invention to the sci-fi stories he read as a child. Stories matter. They shape our lives, expectations, and dreams. They are the warp and weave of our human existence, binding us into a fabric far stronger than any individual element.

World Weaver Press is an independently owned publisher of fantasy, paranormal, and science fiction. We believe in great storytelling.

My new novel God School is now available for pre-order on Kindle. Reserve your copy today!

18-year-old Ev Bannen was just hoping to get admitted to college. He never expected to be recruited to a school for gods, where he’ll be spending his days building up his strength, learning to answer prayers and getting an education in religion alongside aspiring god of money Jaysin Marx, the lovely but troubled Maya Brünhart and Asperger’s-afflicted Daryn Anders. But the organization of evil gods, Zero Grade, has plans to unleash hell on earth, and they require the blood of potential gods to do it. What’s more, someone close to Ev is not who they claim to be, and their betrayal may doom mankind forever. Ev steps up to save the day, but does he even stand a chance in hell of defeating a legendary deity?
