Some News From The Abyss

Hopefully a regular feature as I try to round up some of the interesting snippets of genre publishing news from the last week.

This time round head on over to Teresa Frohock's blog for a new and illuminating interview with the excellent Robert Dunbar. You can find the interview here.

Joseph D'Lacey has just published some news of forthcoming short fiction for 2010 including the long awaited Holy Horrors anthology. You can read more at Horror Reanimated here.

John Connolly is of course one of the finest genre writers and one of his stories has finally hit the big screen. The New Daughter is only on limited release and unfortunately has been a bit lost in the hype surrounding Smurfahontas. You can read more at John's blog here.

Tim Lebbon has announced a couple of major publications for the future with Echo City Falls due from Orbit in 2011 and the very exciting Coldbrook due from Corsair (the new fiction imprint from the Mammoth book folk at Constable& Robinson) also in 2011. Of course Tim Lebbon fans are in for a bumper year this year with among others The Thief Of Broken Toys and Last Exit For The Lost on the horizon. More at Tim's blog here.

Finally many thanks to Mortbury Press for a copy of The Fifth Black Book Of Horror, review soon I hope but in the meantime head here for more information.

Thats all for the moment. If you have any news you want to share then let me know at cgleslie(at)
