This morning I was delighted to discover that my monograph on Les Vampires has been shortlisted for a British Fantasy Award, in the Best Non-Fiction category!
I’m very flattered, and surprised – and as always, I’m grateful to Neil Snowdon of Electric Dreamhouse Press for giving me the opportunity to write the book.
The full list of shortlisted works is well worth checking out. More than anything, what strikes me is the reminder/realisation that I know so many of the shortlisted writers, editors and artists personally, from various genre events, and how much of a pleasure it is to see them achieving and progressing so swiftly in their careers – and being so supportive while doing so.

I’m pleased to announce that, yes, I’ve just been named as co-editor of the British Fantasy Society fiction journal, Horizons, starting with issue 7. I’ll be working alongside fantasy author and editor with Unbound, Shona Kinsella.
I’m really excited about the new role, and looking forward to reading some excellent genre fiction. We’re already making headway through the submissions inbox, and there’ll be a new call for submissions very soon!
I’ve just received the new issue of the British Fantasy Society’s Horizons journal and I’m feeling very proud at seeing my name tucked in there between Aliya Whiteley’s and Den Patrick’s. It looks like a great issue, and I’m looking forward to starting on it tonight.
