Hey ho. Memo to self: setting date to go to printers to combine with end of year accounts not very clever.
However the files for Weird Lies and Mosaic of Air are now at the printers, (thanks to Sophie for the last-minute cover quotation – see below, and to Melina and Kevin for even more last-minute tweaks).
The glitch in the Author accounting spreadsheet is sorted, so I can now concentrate on the actual number crunching for the accounts in their full format, and creating PDFs to send to all the authors, with some good news for those involved in Stations.
The Weird Lies cover quotation:
Despite many years of travel through time, space, parallel universes and alternative dimensions on screen, audio and the printed page, I have never considered myself a fan of science fiction and fantasy writing. Until now! This collection of weird, funny, sad, moving stories is a mini galaxy of treats and a thoroughly Ace read.
We had a spectacular evening at Misty Moon last night. Thanks to Stuart for hosting,and to all our lovely readers for making the stories shine (and for bringing a Doctor Who element to the proceedings!)and the authors for writing such brilliant material in the first place … and the audience for showing up and buying books and laughing so much.
Stuart has asked us to make it a regular date – quarterly to start off with so the next one will be Sunday 29th September, just after we publish Weird Lies and Mosaic of Air.
If, having watched the videos, you want to help Arachne Press publish Weird Lies you can contribute to the funds by preordering or by contributing to our kickstarter campaign.
In Ladywell, in Lewisham there is an old tavern… and behind that tavern is a coach house… and in that coach house is a gallery… with a bit of a fondness for horror movies, ghostly tales and the other things of weird ilk… so no surprise they are friends of Arachne Press, then.
