While he was out at Adepticon in Chicago, m'learned friend Aaron did an interview for the splendid 40K Radio (oh, the fake DJ slogans that name conjures up in my mind!). Aaron sent me a link to it, which I share with you here, in case (he said) I had half an hour to spare and I wanted to find out how much he loved me. Bromantically, obviously. My name comes up a couple of times.
Work continues apace on the Sabbat Worlds Anthology (at left). Let me tell you a bit about that. Because my schedule has been dinked a little by the sudden arrival of Captain Epilepsy and his fun-loving WarpStorm Commandos in the last six months, several projects have had to shift a little. Prospero Burns has been put back a bit, and that's affected Gaunt a tad. As a compensation, we've gone full steam ahead with a collection of stories set in the Sabbat Worlds, where the Gaunt books, Double Eagle and Titanicus all take place. An all-star team of writers, including Aaron, Sandy and Graham, have picked their own little corner of the Sabbat Worlds Crusade to write about. I've just finished work on a brand new Gaunt story for the collection, a veritable novella, called of their lives in the ruins of their cities. Graham's Apostles story (that's right, folks) is a total, total blast. Aaron's just posted a teaser of his on his blog (see link below), and if that doesn't make you put on your reinforced excitement trousers, I don't know what will.
While I've got your attention... in terms of my FAQ's, none are more FA than 'who do I send stories too when I've written them. Behold the answer: a link to Black Library's submission guidelines, plus details of their 2010 Submission Window. Let me, if I may, give you one piece of advice: follow the guidelines! Do not submit if you are not following the guidelines! They are clear and simple! There is no excuse for not following them!
Are we cool?
