Nominations and noteworthy news

It appears that the authors who will feature in this year’s Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, edited by Stephen Jones, have now had their stories confirmed and will appear in issue 20 later this year.

Note that Morrigan Books author, Gary McMahon, features on the front cover, and his story Through the Cracks, was chosen from How To Make Monsters, (available on our website).

I think the cover for this year’s is fantastic and I’m very much looking forward to reading the collection, with many authors of note, the likes of Ramsey Campbell, Paul Finch and Simon Strantzas (who will all feature in Dead Souls, along with McMahon later this year).

Simon Strantzas has been nominated for best artist at this British Fantasy Awards, for his cover for How to Make Monsters. Gary McMahon has been nominated for best collection for the same book and Chill (taken from the collection). Paul Kane has also been nominated for his short, The Suicide Room, taken from Voices.

A pretty good week all in all and looking forward to Fantasy Con this year, where we will be launching Dead Souls for an unsuspecting public…
