BFS Christmas Open Night, 5th. Dec 2008

Posted by demonik on November 12, 2008

Caroline C. also informs us of this forthcoming attraction (relax: i’ve got my anti-social head on and won’t be going anywhere near the dive)

THE BFS CHRISTMAS OPEN NIGHT
5th December, Ye Olde Cock Tavern, London

The British Fantasy Society invites members and non-members alike to join us for pre-Christmas cheer at Ye Olde Cock Tavern, 22 Fleet Street, London, EC4Y 1AA from 6pm onwards…

Come along and help raise buckets of cash in the most agreeable company north of the River Thames!

The British Fantasy Society’s Charity Raffle Spectacular for the St. Mungos’s Homeless Charity. http://www.mungos.org/

Dave McKean very graciously signed copies of this years FantasyCon Souvenir Magazine along with a very nice poster for Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book – two sets will be handed out to the lucky ticket holder on the night. Extra special gifts for your tree also include books donated by PS Publishing, Gollancz, Tasmaniac, and Nightshade Books to name but a few.

For that X-tra Special Christmas thrill Tim Lebbon offers and is indeed more than happy to kill one raffle winner in his next dark fantasy novel for Bantam Spectra, ECHO CITY FALLS.

In his very own words ‘…Thing is, in Echo City, dead isn’t necessarily forever… they might end up modified, brought back as chopped humans to serve as purpose-bred fighters, or scopes, or sex slaves. Who knows? Only me. And I’m not telling ’til I know who the winner is…’

So Remember, Remember the 5th of December… it certainly beats an evening at home with the In-Laws!

THE BFS CHRISTMAS OPEN NIGHT
Ye Olde Cock Tavern, 22 Fleet Street, London, EC4Y 1AA

Time: 6pm onwards

Nearest Tube: Temple (0.3 miles), Chancery Lane (0.4 miles), Blackfriars (0.4 miles)

British Rail: City Thameslink (0.3 miles), Blackfriars (0.4 miles), Farringdon (0.6 miles)

Paperback Fanatic: The November Relaunch

Posted by demonik on August 26, 2008

Justin writes:

Lots of news! Including I will become a dad in February, although I suspect you’re far more interested in news of my other mutant off-spring The Paperback Fanatic!

The new-look Fanatic will be with you in November 2008

The new-look Fanatic will be with you in November 2008


All issues bar 7 are now sold out (I’ll get to the web-site and update it ASAP).

The Fanatic will be re-launched in November as a quarterly publication from Sequential Media. There will be some changes to make it feel more like a magazine, but it should still very much feel like 95% of the original Fanatic. The new publishers also wanted me to carry on with the design to preserve the look, but bearing in mind the increased workload I’ve turned that over to them.

I’m currently writing Volume 2, Issue 3, so there are two issues currently being proof-read and designed. Maybe you could post the new dummy cover for people to check out?

Volume 2, issue 1 content includes-

Skinhead Revival!
The Fanatic traces the rise and fall of the most notorious and collectible of 1970s paperbacks- the skinhead pulps from New English Library (I had to write this one for FM!)

Jim Steranko, The Ivy League Vampire
The Fanatic takes its regular look at the classic paperback artists – this time it’s the legendary Jim Steranko under The Fanatic microscope

Confessions of a Paperback Fanatic
The full story behind the mag you hold in your very hands!

Edgar Rice Burroughs in paperback
With a Princess of Mars movie in production, The Fanatic digs out its collection of British ERB paperbacks and takes a trip to Mars, Venus and Pellucidar

A Fistful of Pulps!
The Fanatic chats with Terry Harknett, the man behind the George G Gilman pseudonym and the million selling spaghetti westerns in print- Edge and Steele

Fanatical Thoughts
Fanatics from around the world have their say on the letters page

The Paperback Dungeon
Updates and corrections to previous features, as well as the latest news, reviews and gossip

Men’s Adventure
In this first instalment of a regular feature on Men’s Adventure pulps, The Fanatic looks at the Malko super-spy series

Pulp Horror Has Risen From The Grave!
The concluding part to The Fanatic’s study of the classic horror pulps of the 1970s

So there you go! Can’t wait to see it out there. I think the launch event will be at the ABC Fair in London in November, so nearer the time I’ll be looking to drum up some support from various alcoholic members of Vault to turn up and cause mischief!

19th Zardoz Pulp Fair, London, 19.Oct. 2008

Posted by demonik on July 31, 2008

I’m delighted to report that this year’s Zardoz pulp fair will be held at the usual venue, the Victoria Park Plaza Hotel, London, Victoria, on Sunday 19th Oct 2008, 10-4, 30+ booktables (tables £50 each, 2 for £90), entry £3.

There has been a small but Vault presence lowering the whole tone of these events since we started in 2005 (you will know them by their unfeasibly huge shoplifter coats and trail of empty beer cans, etc.) but still we seem to be made most welcome and this has become a big date on the evil social calender!

Thanks to the excellent Maurice Flanagan at Zardoz Books for the tip off!

BFS, Ye Olde Cock Inn, London, Sat. July 19 2008

Posted by demonik on June 20, 2008

Justin of the legendary Paperback Fanatic writes:

The BFS is providing a forum for those recommended at Ye Olde Cock Tavern, Fleet Street, London, EC4Y 1AA on Saturday 19th July, doors from 2pm the event starts at 3pm promptly. the purpose of the day is to celebrate those recommended for this years award and to give people a chance to meet those recommended and have a look at the works in question. The judges are the membership of the BFS who have until the 1st August to vote on their top 3 from each category. The winners are then announced at FantasyCon in September.

Looking for a few friendly faces/moral support. Is the British Fantasy Society award nominated anthologist Charles Black going to be in attendance?

And the nominations are …..

British Fantasy Society Awards 2008

I’m sure we all recognise a few shifty characters among that lot! Best of luck to all of yers!
