The Sixty

sixty-front-loresNow this is something rather exciting. “The Sixty” is a collection of sixty stunning science fiction images created by the stupendously talented Andy Bigwood, each accompanied by a specially-commissioned piece of flash fiction.

The authors involved include Geoff Nelder, Bec Zugor, Oscar Windsor-Smith and … me. My piece is called “Pioneer”, and I’m really proud to be involved with this, because it’s a pretty special project altogether.

It’s being launched at 6pm on 22nd April at EasterCON, National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham UK and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

In other news, massive congratulations to everyone longlisted for the Edge Hill Short Story Prize, especially the ones whose wonderful books on the list I’ve read and enjoyed over the past few months: Jo Cannon, Vanessa Gebbie, Nik Perring and Tom Vowler. Fab stuff.

    I’m chuffed and honoured to be in the same book as you and Geoff again. Can’t wait to see The Sixty – and also Escape Velocity!

    Thanks Jon. getting this book together has been a voyage of discovery… Fortunately I think I’ve attracted some incredible fiction. Works that add a third dimension to my art (without the need for cardboard glasses).

    @Bec Yup – should be two excellent projects!

    @Andy Well, with those pictures, it’s hardly surprising that the writers felt inspired 🙂 I’m really looking forward to seeing the final product.
