A new short story – and I rarely get the chance to write them these days – will be available in the first annual anthology from the British Fantasy Society. Deadhouse Steps is a horror story, springing out of my recent visit to Tenby in South Wales, where the steps can be found.
The anthology – the British Fantasy Society Yearbook 2009 – is only available to members of the British Fantasy Society, so sign up now if you want to get a copy. Membership costs £30 a year, but for that you get the quarterly magazine, Prism, with news, reviews and colums, the fiction magazines Dark Horizons and New Horizons, and a discount off the entrance fee to the annual convention, Fantasycon.
The anthology includes a cross-section of leading British fantasy and horror writers, including James Barclay, Juliet McKenna, Christoper Fowler, Tim Lebbon, Sarah Pinborough and Conrad Williams.
