Full Fathom Forty





My 1920s New York set weird fantasy House of Snowflakes has been accepted by David J Howe for the British Fantasy Society's 40th Anniversary anthology Full Fathom Forty. The anthology will be launched at Fantasycon this September.

Two acceptances in one week. I think I like this summer.

In other news, my lawnmower almost blew up and (it gets worse) I still had to do the garden using our rickety old lawnmower.

Fabulous. We've got some kind of synchronicity going on, Cate.

When they sent the e-mail about it, a few days ago, I thought, Rats, I haven't got in.

I am so excited about the anthology. I'm even thinking about going to FantasyCon. Can't wait to see the TOC.

Sweetness!

And that's a bad-ass cover, too. Congrats!

I thought the same when I saw a link to the anthology on the BFS site, Deborah. Phew!

Thanks, Ken

Congratulations, Cate 'Two Mowers' Gardner!

Cate Gardner said...

Only one mower now, Mike. :P Although I am "Two Gardens" Gardner, so does that make me posh?

Gardner by name, gardener by nature...

Congrats, Cate! And now of course you have absolutely NOOO excuse to miss Fantasycon! ;-)

Lee said...

Supercool! Congrats! (not about the lawnmower incident of course). :-P

Huzzah!

Cate Gardner said...

Definitely not a gardener by nature, Simon.

Thanks, Lee, James, Anthony & Natalie

Cate, that's marvellous news. Many congratulations. Lovely cover isn't it?

Katey said...

Congratulations, Cate -- huge news! And I'm sorry about the lawn mower, but hey, the good outweighs the bad!

Thanks, Simon & Katey (oh and I'm not mourning the lawn mower, in fact I may even sabotage the next)
