First up, we have a brand new World’s Collider interview on the site today! Steven Savile, one of the biggest names in the anthology, talks to Elise Hattersley. Well worth checking out.
So World’s Collider was published a few days ago and it’s been a mixed week overall. Sales have been pretty good out of the gate and we’re getting lots of positive buzz. The launch was marred somewhat by the attack on the book’s Amazon page by some lowlife who we know has not even read the book, but this was counteracted on Thursday by the most wonderful first genuine review from Anastasia. She gave the book 5-stars and said:
What a GREAT read! I picked this up yesterday and read it all last night until my eyes couldn’t stay open, and then finished it this morning. It was so good I simply couldn’t wait to post a review! […] Two thumbs up and definitely deserving a multitude of 5-Star Ratings!!! :)
We also got a mention on the Ginger Nuts of Horror website and they’ve been sent a copy, so hopefully they will have the chance to review it soon. If you’ve not checked it out yet, take a look at the big roundtable interview with nearly all the writers. You can also still find all our previous one-on-one World’s Collider contributor interviews.
The trade paperback of World’s Collider is available now from Amazon US, Amazon UK and direct from Nightscape Press. Don’t worry that it says “Volume 1”, rest assured if you order this version you will get all the stories in one book. I’ve seen some photos of the printed anthology and it is a thing of beauty. It’s also BIG. Thick and chunky. Don’t read it too late at night in case you fall asleep. It’ll break your nose!
In other news, I had a guest blog on Pat Douglas’s site, Indie-Inside, about whether or not writers should consider contributing their work to anthologies that don’t pay their writers. Please have a read and maybe let me know our thoughts on this subject in the comments below.
