I have a new story coming out on Valentine's Day 2010, in the anthology Lace and Blade 3
, ed. Deborah J Ross, from the wonderful small-press publisher Norilana Books. I'm really excited about this: I love this series, which focuses on swashbuckling adventure and Romance in the Dumas style. And the line-up is great: it's a huge honour to be included alongside writers like Tanith Lee, Judith Tarr and Rosemary Hawley Jarman. No cover art as yet, but here's the full list of stories:
Kari Sperring, "Featherweight"
Sean McMullen, "Culverelle"
Sheila Finch, "Fortune's Stepchild"
Judith Tarr, "The Horned King"
Jay Lake & Shannon Page, "Embers"
Tanith Lee, "Question a Stone"
Dave Smeds, "A Swain of Kneaded Moonlight"
Rosemary Hawley Jarman, "Fire and Frost and Burning Rose"
This weekend, I shall be at Fantasycon, the annual convention of the British Fantasy Society, at the Britannia Hotel, Nottingham. There are some wonderful guests, notably Gail Z Martin and Jasper fforde. I'm looking forward to it.
I'm on a couple of panels, one on British Folklore ('The Green Man')_, at 3pm on Saturday, and one on New Fantasy Writers, at 10 am on Sunday.
